Let us pray that God does a work in Dennis Terry’s life

My friends, this is my family’s former home church. My grandfather was deacon there, my mother is buried there. I have friends who go there. I have criticized it before. I will not cease from my efforts. Dennis Terry is not what he claims he is, but if members begin to question, they will be removed. Until someone removes him, he will attempt to fill Jerry Falwell’s shoes.

“I don’t care what the liberals say, I don’t care what the naysayers say, this nation was founded as a Christian nation…There is only one God and his name is Jesus. I’m tired of people telling me that I can’t say those words.. Listen to me, If you don’t love America, If you don’t like the way we do things I have one thing to say – GET OUT. We don’t worship Buddha, we don’t worship Mohammad, we don’t worship Allah, we worship God, we worship God’s son Jesus Christ.”

Terry is no stranger to outlandish statements about those whom he deems less than human. He doesn’t sound orthodox, nor American.

This nation was not intended to be a theocracy, but Terry and even Santorum would seek to make it so. This country will lose its soul in these attempts, to make it a theocracy, and so will we.

I think of people like Muhammad, Elvis, others… who had they submitted to Christ, had they taken their talents and passion for those talents to service of the Church… I ponder how different this world may be today. I wonder, if Terry took his passion for inflammatory, and wrong, rhetoric, and turned it to Christ, how better might Baton Rouge – how better this world, may be.

  1. It’s a sad state of affairs when the small country church that was once the center of my existence has turned into such a hate-filled place of judgement and hypocrisy. It’s sad to recognize the faces in the choir and know that they hate me for something that I would have gladly changed if such were possible.

    I spent my entire childhood at Greenwell Springs and spent more than a few Sundays in the pulpit. I even taught Sunday School for two years, all in an effort to be something other than what I knew I was.

    Shame on Dennis Terry for his willful ignorance and hateful bloviating. Shame on him for advancing a political agenda when he should be showing people love and humility and basic human compassion.

    If I were still a praying man, I would say a special prayer for the young men and women of GSBC who are gay and who have to hear this mess every Sunday. I hope they make it out alive; if they don’t, their blood is on Dennis’ hands.

  2. I have just heard about this today. It caught my eye because my maiden name is Terry. I find what Dennis has to say embarrassing because it is a lie. Many if not most of our Founding Fathers were Deists and chose not to be associated with ANY of Christian churches.

    I’ve thought of working on my family tree … but people like Dennis and Randall make me think twice. Because I’d hate like everything to find out I’m related to either of these guys!
