An SBC that doesn’t have place for @BethMooreLPM doesn’t have a place for a lot of us.

This is in connection with the complementarianism dispute that is such a big part of the Southern Baptist Convention’s annual meeting this year. Basically, there is an older group that dragged the denomination back to the Stone Age during the so-called Conservative Resurgence, and there is a younger group that wants to propel denominational thinking into the modern world. Since the Pious folk at both ends of the theological spectrum don’t do the hard work of establishing their premises, with the result that they have no idea that theology is bullshit, I don’t have much sympathy for either group’s hurts. But indignation and hurt is what you get without intellectual rigor; the hard feelings on display at #SBC19 are an exemplar for what is wrong with religion and the harm it does.
