A motion has been introduced to fire the Executive Committee that fired Paige Patterson.
Wow. Fireworks – Big time. At 2:45 pm Wednesday, June 13, 2018, at the SBC. A motion by Tom Hatley to “remove” the Ex. Com. of SWBTS who voted unanimously to fire Paige Patterson will be debated and voted on. “Tell the truth, trust the people.” #SBCAM18 #SBC18 #IWill #It’sComing

Meantime, there’s another group unhappy with the SBC’s increasing movement toward Calvinism.

Calvinism is even crazier than plain-vanilla Christianity. Seriously, read Calvin’s magnum opus, The Institutes of the Christian Religion; he says it’s a species of adultery to enjoy sex with your spouse too much because you aren’t focusing during that time upon being perfect for Jesus. So the SBC is looking backward even as they decline. This is a time-honored historical pattern, of course, but it still is kind of startling to see a major social institution make such a blunder in modern times.
Or … maybe not. It’s not as if the talking-snake crowd reads a lot of sound history.
