Former Bama SBC Prez endorses Romney; backed by Pickering

Postby Stephen Fox » Fri Nov 02, 2012 11:13 am

Charles Pickering is former Mississippi SBC prez, Bush 43 Judicial Nominee and member of the 87 SBC Peace Committee. Pickering and Reagan operative Allan Sears' Alliance Defending Freedom is sponsoring this mess.
I will be blogging shortly about how it all morphs with Billy Graham endorsement of Romney; and suspicions of how Billy came to have a full page picture endorsement www.postpaper.com weekly on Tuesday here in NE Alabama.

Talbot is a native of east Arkansas and for 11 years worked at Mobile Press Register before coming to HTimes. He had a live online chat with a rep of the ADF Wedsnesday that should google easily and is working on following stories. He has talked to Randall Balmer, and I am submitting a quote for him to consider from the blog I will post shortly.

I really want to believe Billy Graham has nothing to do with this political nonsense.

Tom, read my blog for Nov 2. You are quite naive about Billy Graham and his son Frank and the BGEA. Read Steven Miller after you read my blog. And stay abreast of George Talbot's upcoming reports

Stephen:

I think you misread what I was trying to say. I do believe Billy and Franklin are behind this political nonsense. I just wish it were not true.

I think if Billy is really behind it, it's evidence of his senility. It flies in the face of his whole career as the nonpartisan pastor to the Presidents, and his not too long past comments about what he had learned. I think Franklin is the culprit, and is carefully limiting Billy's exposure to the news and to Democrats.

How it plays in Charlotte and On NPR

Postby Stephen Fox » Tue Nov 06, 2012 5:58 pm

http://www.charlotteobserver.com/2012/1 ... parse.html

www.drshow.org had a sterling conversation with EJ Dionne and others on this matter and I continue to blog about how it is playing in NE Bama. Plan to submit a letter to the Ft. Payne Times Journal, where Bobby FBC Daytona was baptized; SBC Prez..Welch, couldn't think of his name for a minute

Myers Park Shoemaker takes on Billy Graham in his hometown

Postby Stephen Fox » Tue Nov 06, 2012 6:29 pm

See the comments with this clipping. I hope Bruce Gourley will engage the conversation via Facebook, and Big Daddy Weave. Who knows Franklin Graham himself may be reading.

John Killian likely next prez of Bama SBC

Postby Stephen Fox » Tue Nov 13, 2012 6:47 pm

Killian is my friend but on a panel last winter at Samford he was woefully wrongheaded on immigration reform.

How his presidency plays out with Rick Lance and Gov Bentley in the face of Mrs Nick Saban, Condi Rice and UMC Bishop Willimon calling for reform with Chic Fila's Dan Cathy could leave Alabama Baptists isolated and Chuck Pickerin with some splanin to do

Ed: See the context for Dr. Gaddy's comment at ; http://www.huffingtonpost.com/rev-dr-c- ... 42951.html

And I have a question about the use of the term "Sacred Desk". What makes an assembled piece of furniture, be it wooden, plexiglass or a modified 55 gallon oil drum or as the one in a church I visited this past Sunday, a high cocktail table from a defunct restaurant, Sacred?

Seems to me that only Divine Intervention can make a retired bar table into a Sacred Desk. Pulpits, on the other hand, can be tweaked into Sacred Desks by the mere application of flowery prose.
