Relevant History for Sandy and Thornton

Postby Stephen Fox » Mon Apr 01, 2013 2:37 pm

There aint no way you can gossamer over Russ Moore and make him respectable.

Here is what his ERLC came from

In 1978 President Carter his the Oil companies with a windfall profits tax.

In 1979 Adrian Rogers became Prez of the SBC.


About that time Jesse Helms saved Ronald Reagan's career in the NC. Presidential Primary.

In 76 Jimmy Allen and James Dunn had helped Jimmy Carter in Texas.

In the 80's Pressler began in earnest their assault on CLC and BJC. they stacked Dunn's board with Helms operatives including Sam Currin and Joe Knott. They got the Bircher Albert Lee SMith from Alabama.

So let's don't dance around it. The SBC of Pressler and the so called inerrantists has made a beautiful journey from the Birch Society to the Tea Party and that's the real story.

Connecting coincidental events may be your past time, Stephen, but without any substantiation, they are nothing more than coincidental. The idea that Helms "saved" Reagan's career is your opinion. The SBC and the BJC story has differing versions, depending on which side wrote it, but the BJC wasn't guiltless in back and forth actions that wound up costing it its SBC funding.

And Chandler Davidson of Rice

Bill Moyers of the Johnson adminstratioin

Joe Ferguson of Hard Right, Jesse Helms

Ellen Rosenberg of Baptists in Transition

Tom Edsall of the New Politics of Inequality

Dan Williams of God's Own Party

And Emory's Joe Crespino of Strom Thurmond's America

All them differ with you, Sandy on this point. But you keep on believing what you have to believe.
