I don't need you to encourage my friend Thornton to stifle one of the most serious subjects in Alabama and Georgia Baptists life today.
The Berry program was significant for among many reasons
1)Cokie Roberts husband Steve has written a book about Immigration.
2) Sean McKenzie, a PHD from Fl State and son of David McKenzie a CBF pastor in the area and Berry Proff is one of the leading advocates for Dream Act in the State, and teaches in nearby Calhoun. He routinely makes posts at ethicsdaily.com and just last week was part of prophetic Baptists and others in the state to lobby and successfully keep the state legislature from kicking all suspect Hispanic immigrants out of the state's juco system.
3) Enormous number of folks--sadly they don't participate on this board--encourage my letter writing to the local papers, where you are obsesses with preaching to the choir.
4)Thornton is a good fellow. I trust the sensibility of himself in counsel with Gourley, Dave Roberts and other wiser more sanguine people than yourself to make judgment calls and see the value of the assertions I am making in regard immigration bills in the Southeast.
5)Nobody has appointed you to monitor anything at this site; and it will be a worse place if the do.
6)Thornton has set up a complaint, discussion thread here, so maybe you should take your response there and let this thread be available for those who want to engage the immigration conversation or the many folks who come by this thread here for links and updates on this most significant story before Baptists and the SBC majority in the nation and Southeast.
Otherwise have a nice day and I hope your Great Grandmother in Pickens County, S.C. continues to get the honor she deserves for her steadfastness during the Civil War
