Ed: And Sandy unless and until you take up Foxes challenge I will continue to reject your revisionist insinuations about the
moderate players responses to the takeover of the SBC.
And when you write "Moore's theology reflected that of the people in the pews who make up the SBC and all of its various parts, a fact that has been confirmed a thousand times, on every level of convention organization from the local church to the national convention." I will first ask whom have you read in this discussion saying any thing about Moore's "Theology", and then ask what do you know about his Theology.
And when you say "The SBC is well beyond the point of acknowledging, or responding to, the criticism of the few remaining moderates", I must ask, so why then did Moore offer at this late date, what you and others call an apology.
And when you refer to the "few remaining moderates" I am persuaded that there are more than a "few" remaining moderates in churches sill affiliated with the SBC, perhaps fewer each year. But at the recent CBF Assembly in Greensboro I met at least a half dozen folk from at least three states for whom this was their first Assembly, who said something to the effect of "I wish some of the folk from my SBC church where here to see and feel this." A few added,"but then, I didn't tell them I was coming, they will know I was here, even if I have to start looking for a new church".
