The SBC and numbers...
Well, from what I read, the plan hasn't quite gone so smoothly, at least with the "resurgence". They've achieved the takeover and excised moderates out of cooperation (oops, I meant obeying), yet they're running out of scapegoats.
The flap over at the International Mission Board troubles me. Basically, it means that if a minority of the trustees disagreed with a policy yet were voted down, they couldn't publicly voice their dissension. I've seen Politburo meetings run in a more friendly fashion.
I was surfing around and took a turn into Southern Baptist blogs just to see what was shaking. Through Marty Duren's SBC Outpost, I stumbled over to a blog titled 12 Witnesses, written by Art Rogers.
He has an interesting post catching Paige Patterson, president of the seminary, using apples and oranges to help pad the numbers.
