Trump's insult to pastor and pastor's response

Postby Dave Roberts » Tue Sep 10, 2019 6:37 am

I found this fascinating, and I commend the pastor for speaking truth to power and acting gently in the face of the vitriol aimed at him.

So far I can't get the story to open here at home. Hopefully it'll be easier later today at the library. I just spent about an hour opening two stories from the NYT, and have failed to open FB so far today. For some reason--perhaps its "Not secure" label?--BL.com opens a lot quicker (20~30 minutes, then subsequent internal pages quicker, though it keeps forcing me to relogin) than most of the sites I try to frequent.

Shock of shocks, a Southern Baptist pastor willing to be openly honest about the President and not a political sell-out.

There are a lot more SBC pastors who don't endorse the corruption of their faith than do, at least in the area where I am.

Finally got a chance to read the pastor's response. Well done.
