    ARB cited on EthicsDaily.com
    We laughed when we referred too as "A popular Southern Baptist blog"

    Bob Allen writing for Ethics Daily wrote about recent even during the CBF Annual meeting:

    A throwaway line at last month's Baptist Center for Ethics 15th anniversary luncheon earned the attention of Fox News and rebuttal on a conservative Web site.

    In his June 22 keynote address at the Atlanta meeting, Bob Edgar, general secretary of the National Council of Churches, quipped that his organization is trying to "address fear, fundamentalism and Fox television."

    Edgar has used the line before, but Fox News reported it as an "attack" and "challenge," linking to an NCC news release about the speech and inviting Fox News Web readers to e-mail their thoughts.

    A follow-up NCC release said Edgar's comments "hit a nerve" with Fox editors, noting that about 4,000 Fox viewers visited the NCC Web site to read the message. While most reactions criticized Edgar, the NCC said a surprising number of Fox viewers believed he hit the nail on the head.

    The conservative Front Page Magazine wrongly reported July 13 that Edgar's made the remark "while speaking at the 15th anniversary luncheon of the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship's (CBF) General Assembly on June 23.

    It seems that the luncheon was not "sponsored by the CFB" by was held during its annual meeting.

    Here is where we come in:

    A popular Southern Baptist blog commended the article: "For those who think conservative Baptists are the only Baptists who are political, Mark Tooley writes about an interesting speech delivered to the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, where the speaker was reading from his Democrat Party talking points."

    This is the post to which they refer.

    Robert Parham of the Baptist Center for Ethics responded that "BCE always welcomes the opportunity to make the crooked way straight, a Christian virtue apparently unshared by Fox News, Front Page Magazine, the Institute on Religion and Democracy and fundamentalist bloggers."

    The crux of the story is that the luncheon in question was not sponsored by the CBF, but the fact that the gathering was held in conjuction with and during the CBF's annual meeting is quite significant. We don't figure many Episcopalians attended the luncheon. Those who dined while listening to the Democratic Party's talking points were liberal Baptists.

    Remember, birds of a feather flock together.

    Sometimes a person is more influential than they think. Nice work.

    Thanks, but this was a case of a writer drawing a thin distinction and needing a few sources.
