Is it just me, or has anyone else become annoyed by all the whining going on over at SBC Voices lately?
If it were not for the big SBC Voices logo at the top of the page (claiming to be “open source Southern Baptist news & opinions”) one might think they had stumbled into a bad episode of the Jerry Springer show.
Here is an example of what I am talking about… it comes from an article written by Howell Scott titled “Radically Redefining Transparency in the SBC: Part 1”
Scott opens this episode of the show with this outlandish accusation leveled against the members of the Great Commission Task Force… Howell says:
”…the GCR has led to more division and distrust among Southern Baptists,… Not that they will take any responsibility for the increased level of division and distrust within the convention,”
And the show only gets nastier from there.
Scott next claims that by voting to seal the records of the meeting of the GCRTF for 15 years, in order that we not break the assurance of confidentially given to all who were encouraged to freely speak their mind about what was wrong and needed fixing in the SBC, the members of the Convention itself are guilty of voting to radically “redefine transparency within the Southern Baptist Convention.”
Let’s see now… we have been on the air for, what, 5 minutes now, and Scott has accused the members of the GCRTF of causing “division and distrust among Southern Baptists…” and the members of the Convention itself of being dishonest… all because Scott did not get what he wanted in Orlando.
”How dare you not give me what I want… I’ll come over there and scratch your eyes out… You big…
Yep, this is a bad episode of the Jerry Springer show all right… think I will turn the channel.
