    Did messengers know that Condi Rice is "pro-choice?"
    I believe Bobby Welch said she was one of us. Really???

    We were a little surprised by the overwhelmingly warm reception Sec. Rice received from the 11,000 messengers. There were even few messengers screaming "2008!" implying some how they would support her presidential candidacy, should it materialize.

    The standard for Southern Baptists is (hopefully was): We'll beat the dog snot out of our own over matters of nonessential doctrines, but we'll LOVE all over a pro-choice Bush Administration official.


    We would encourage you to read this Washington Times piece. Let me provide a few excepts:

    "...Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice yesterday pointedly declined to rule out running for president in 2008, and gave her most detailed explanation of a "mildly pro-choice" stance on abortion.

    "...she said she would not want the government 'forcing its views' on abortion.

    "...Other Republicans have questioned whether evangelical Christians, a crucial component of the Republican base, would turn out to vote for a pro-choice candidate. Miss Rice, a Presbyterian's preacher's daughter who twice in the interview spoke of her 'deep religious faith,' suggested it's a moot point. 'I'm not trying to be elected.'

    "...Describing pro-lifers as "the other side" is one of the ways Miss Rice articulates her position as a "mildly pro-choice" Republican. She explained that she is "in effect kind of libertarian on this issue," adding: "I have been concerned about a government role."

    CONDI 2008??

    Back in the 80's, I heard Illinois Rep. Timothy Johnson state that many Libertarians took him to task for his pro-life stance, but "pro-life is necessarily the libertarian position."

    He was a rare voice of reason, I suspect. To abuse a phrase, does Libertarian mean live and let live, or live and let die?

    I didn't know she was pro-choice. Uggh!

    I'm glad I stayed at Starbucks to write my message!

    Condi's positions should be troubling for us. In fact I'm not sure there will be a candidate to truly support in 08.

    This is really sinking in....

    We had messengers cheering for a woman who believes it is ok to kill a baby, but we want to make sure there are no IMB trustees who drink alcohol. (I do not drink btw).

    There is nowhere in the Bible that states that alcohol is a sin, but murder is! Thanks for keeping us updated.

    Two simple words can explain the phenomenon: she's Republican.

    Great point - you nailed it. Yet another example of us giving blind support to the Republican Party. When will we use discernment, speak prophetically, and not be aligned with any party or candidate. Jesus said His Kingdom is not of this world.

    Personally, I'm a Republican for more than one reason. I agree with Republicans on most every issue... BUT I could never vote for a pro-choice candidate.
