He pulled it down, but you know what… he’s still the south end of a northbound horse. Since he took the tweet down, I decided to leave the tweet before and after to show where it was.
During the 1970’s and early 80’s, there was a huge fight in the Southern Baptist Convention over the direction of the denomination. The conservatives of the denomination were successful in marginalizing liberals, moderates, women, and others who did not preach “the real Gospel.” Today, the Southern Baptist Convention is virtually led by the Rev.
