Welcome to the Realm™ - Version 5.0...
________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________





(“WITY”, of course, standing for “What’d I Tell Ya?”)

The Vicar™ & I were conducting an email exchange yesterday, whereupon he committed…well, not a cardinal  sin, but it got a good-sized virtual mock-glare from me, anyway. 

His trespass:  referring to me as a Baptist.  (The Southern  part of that was not “voiced”, as it were, but given where the Realm™ is geographically located, one could say it was at least implied.)

Whereupon I immediately reminded him that (in the words of the Romulan Nero) that I do not speak for the Southern Baptist Convention, that they & I stand apart.

Which, in turn, reminded me  that I had never followed up on my promise to layeth the smacketh downeth on their candy asses for the aforementioned folly of carrying water for a failed movement.

The world’s leading climate change scientists have been caught out making unfounded claims about global warming for the second time in just over a week.

Experts appointed by the United Nations said rising temperatures were to blame for an increase in the number and severity of natural disasters such as hurricanes and floods.

But it has emerged that the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change based the statement, made in 2007, on an unpublished report that had not been properly reviewed by other scientists.

Feel most free to go read the rest.

So tell me, Jack Graham, pastor of Prestonwood Baptist Church, my former pastor and a leader in this mad scramble to climb into bed with the Gaia-worshippers & tree-humpers huggers – how does it feel knowing that you were sold a bill of goods?  And highly defective goods, at that?

How does it feel to know that you and your fellow SBC high-muckety-mucks willfully  disobeyed God and focused more on pleasing man than on pleasing Him?  I know how it feels when I’m  reminded that I fail the Lord on a daily basis – how does it feel, knowing that not only  did you do it, but then made a fucking spectacle  of yourselves in announcing it to the world at large?

You people foolishly sold your souls for the hope in acquiring something resembling the acceptance of the world – hell, you morons even said as much

“Our cautious response to these issues in the face of mounting evidence may be seen by the world as uncaring, reckless and ill-informed. We can do better.”

…so how does it now feel knowing that you got caught red-handed caring more about how the fucking world  saw you than how Christ saw you – and it wound up biting your on your ample asses as a result, hm?

It is time for the leadership of the Southern Baptist Convention to take its turned-into-linguini-spines, step the fuck aside and allow new, fresh blood that isn’t willing to compromise as they have, to take over and carry the banner forward.

Before that passage in Revelation that I mentioned really does  come back to devour them.

    Someone should (diplomatically) ask the Baptist leaders who bought into AGW to respond to Climategate (which some wags have nicknamed the CRUtape letters).

    We can always count on Darth to let us know exactly where he stands.

    One of the nice things about a church fellowship (LCMS) which does not involve itself in politics, and which bases its positions on social issues upon the inspired, inerrant scriptures, is that our leaders don’t make the sort of boneheaded comments that were made by Pastor Graham.
