Most people can't tell the difference between a Baptist and the flam'n fundamentalist lunatics like www.landoverbaptist.orgMelody said:What can I say, but...sad. I don't know whether the church I'm going to would do that although I'm absolute certain that they would not allow a gay pastor and they might not allow them to become an official member since the philosophy of the church is that to be a member you have to abide by their philosophy...which in this case is to adhere to the bible (their interpretation obviously).
I had a feeling J4L was baptist but I had you, Nathan, pegged as a Catholic. Oops.
I think that most people see Bigot instead of Baptist:
Southern Bigot Convention instead of Southern Baptist Convention
I have some diplomas from Wayland Baptist University, and I feel like people see "Wayland Bigot University" on my T-shirts because of what Jerry Falwell and Paige Batterson (er... Patterson) has done for Baptist life. :banghead3
