The SBC's "Annus Horribilis"

I have always considered it a blessing to have had Latin as part of my educational experience. The terminology is so descriptive and colorful.

WIlliam needs to put more of his SBC Voices stuff over here. I would say he does a good job of capturing the collective thinking in the SBC these days, maybe a bit understated, salted with a bit of sarcasm.

I'm drawing a blank on Rick Patrick's profuse apology.

Paige Patterson is a master of mendacity. I could say a lot but the Birch Society was there all along in the takeover and it dismays me a fellow as bright and articulate as Thornton didnt see that 40 years ago. Thornton said he was with Paige as SBC convention speaker until the SEBTS rape complicity allegation. I
I dont know.

Yall do know how I feel. Its in the SBC Meacham Bush Blog of three weeks ago if anybody wants to click over, complete with references to UNC Chancellor Bill Friday, Bill Moyers, Ellen Ferguson, Neal Rodgers, Tom Edsall and a host of others most of you have come to know through my introduction over the years.

To paraphrase Mick Jagger in Gimmee Shelter: Rape Murder, its just a click away. Its just a click away.

He was the operator of a website called "SBC Today" and pastor of the First Baptist Church of Sylacauga, Alabama. He made some comments that were rather insensitive. Here's a news story.

I see. I missed all that, or it blended into the Patterson narrative to where I didn't realize it was there.
