Tweeted theology debate for the day

Tom Rich takes-up Albert Mohler’s sad instruction that truly Godly folk will dismember their family by refusing to attend the same-sex wedding of a child. The responses are sad and too predictable.

The conversation starts thusly:

Notice the indignation: It’s a problem that Mohler says to dismember your family? And the smug preening: Of course blind obedience to the Bible is more important than the happiness of your family.

If you think you can stomach it, and have a Twitter account, click on Tom’s tweet above and then on “View summary” when you get to his Twitter page.

And notice this: I do not exaggerate when I tell you that “family values” is a marketing lie, or that the Southern Baptists regard family loyalties as a threat to pastoral authority and, accordingly, discourage and strive to undermine it. Since the so-called Conservative Resurgence — Fundamentalist Takeover, more precisely — the Southern Baptist Convention has devolved into just another decadent cult. And with sane people fleeing by the busload, it’s only going to get worse.
