The Peoples Republic of Georgia bans Blogging

It’s true; the Georgia Baptist Convention has passed a resolution against blogging.

One Blogger has titled his article about this action of the Georgia Baptist Convention
Dumber than Dirt

If this were not so sad it would be funny… But this is not funny… this is not funny at all because what is behind this resolution, and the recent censure of Wade Burleson by the Board of Trustees of the IMB, is nothing less than a raw attempt of the current leadership of the SBC to silence all dissent and opposing voices to their ever narrowing view of the SBC.

This is not funny… this is an outrage to Baptist principles!


Hey Guys… whoever you are that actually drew up this resolution… I have a quote for you; see if you can figure out where it comes from.

"A free church in a free state is the Christian ideal, and this implies the right of free and unhindered access to God on the part of all men, and the right to form and propagate opinions in the sphere of religion without interference by the civil power."

I really thought you were joking until I did a Google search. Unbelievable!

Passing a resolution at a Baptist convention is a waste of time and paper.

This one, however, will be like pouring gasoline on a smoldering charcoal fire.

Tery,

You are correct... one would think that the Georgia Baptist Convention would have a copy of the BFM... perhaps not.

Bill,

Good to hear from you... I wish I was joking... Yea, Unbelievable. It looks like bloggers have replaced Calvinist on the hit list :-)

Lee,

I agree resolutions are a complete waste of time and paper... Actually State Conventions are a complete waste of time and paper... :-)

Grace Always,
