Thank you, Brian, for articulating something I witnessed (1979 was the year I got call to preach) and came to recognize as something sinister. Voices raising the alarm in the SBC were pushed out removing any counter-balance to the worst influences in the denomination. National politics over the last eight to 10 years has had a familiar look, a similar sour taste. Turns out the fundamentalist SBC has been a part of that coalition and looks like it even helped perfect the Machiavellian practices of what used to be the "Grand Old Party."
