    Disowning Conservative Politics Is Costly for an Evangelical Pastor

    By LAURIE GOODSTEIN

    MAPLEWOOD, Minn. — Like most pastors who lead thriving evangelical megachurches, the Rev. Gregory A. Boyd was asked frequently to give his blessing — and the church’s — to conservative political candidates and causes.

    The requests came from church members and visitors alike: Would he please announce a rally against gay marriage during services? Would he introduce a politician from the pulpit? Could members set up a table in the lobby promoting their anti-abortion work? Would the church distribute “voters’ guides” that all but endorsed Republican candidates? And with the country at war, please couldn’t the church hang an American flag in the sanctuary?

    After refusing each time, Mr. Boyd finally became fed up, he said. Before the last presidential election, he preached six sermons called “The Cross and the Sword” in which he said the church should steer clear of politics, give up moralizing on sexual issues, stop claiming the United States as a “Christian nation” and stop glorifying American military campaigns.

    “When the church wins the culture wars, it inevitably loses,” Mr. Boyd preached. “When it conquers the world, it becomes the world. When you put your trust in the sword, you lose the cross.”

    IDIOT! IDIOT! IDIOT! IDIOT! IDIOT! IDIOT!
    From the Arkansas Razorback Sports Network:

    Little Rock
    - Darren McFadden, a Razorback tailback chosen for first-team All-SEC honors, has undergone surgery on a joint in his toe and is "doubtful" for Arkansas' season opener against Southern California on Sept. 2, coach Houston Nutt said Saturday.

    According to a police report, McFadden was involved in a disturbance at 4:20 a.m. Saturday at Palace the Club, a Little Rock private club. When officers arrived, a fight was taking place in the parking lot while a crowd watched. McFadden told officers he didn't know the person with whom he was fighting, the report said.

    The report said McFadden was taken to University Hospital for treatment.

    McFadden suffered an open dislocation of the distal IP joint of his big left toe, according to a Razorbacks news release. The sophomore underwent surgery early Saturday morning in Little Rock to repair the capsule surrounding a joint. Also, a small pin was inserted in the joint to stabilize it.

    Arkansas trainer Dean Weber said McFadden will not practice for several weeks and is unlikely to compete against USC.

    McFadden rushed for 1,113 yards and 11 touchdowns last season, becoming the seventh freshman in Southeastern Conference history to run for 1,000 yards.

    Gay Christian: Lance Bass
    Lance Bass: 'I'm Gay' | Lance Bass

    He was "The Shy One." And during the bubblegum pop craze that began in the late '90s, Lance Bass – along with his 'N Sync bandmates Joey Fatone, Chris Kirkpatrick, JC Chasez and Justin Timberlake – was a pinup boy for millions of adoring fans. But as the group rode the boy band wave – their 2000 smash, No Strings Attached, sold a record-breaking 2.4 million copies in its first week – the Mississippi-bred, Southern Baptist-reared Bass felt burdened by hiding the truth he says he has known "from childhood on": He's gay.

    From a recent interview:

    Q:Did your mom ask you if you would still go to church?

    A:Yeah, definitely. And I still go to church. I'm still Christian. I was not raised in a Christian church to hate people. I was taught to love people and accept people. I know what I believe.

    Givin' Page a Chance
    Let us give a shout out to our Baptist brotha James A. Smith for some good stories (and a great OP-ED) in the latest edition of the Florida Baptist Witness.

    Due to popular demand we have decided to use our favorite pic of Bro. James. We mean him no disrespect, especially after writing these insightful pieces...wait a go Bro. James, great work!


    Page presidency to ‘get some things on the table for discussion’
    Published July 25, 2006

    TAYLORS, S.C. (FBW) — Frank Page didn’t want to be president of the Southern Baptist Convention. And he never believed that he would win even after he felt compelled by God to be a candidate. But winning an election wasn’t really the point of his reluctant candidacy anyway.

    Page talks about SBC theological issues in debate

    TAYLORS, S.C. (FBW) — Twenty-six years ago, Frank Page completed a doctor of philosophy degree in Christian ethics at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas, with the acceptance of his dissertation, “Toward a Biblical Ethic of Women in Ministry,” which strongly advocated unlimited roles for women in ministry, including serving as church pastors.
    In CP debate, ‘balance is the key,’ Page says

    In CP debate, ‘balance is the key,’ Page says

    TAYLORS, S.C. (FBW)—The Southern Baptist Convention presidential election this year generated considerable discussion about the relative importance of the Cooperative Program — Southern Baptists’ unified missions funding and delivery system — and probably resulted in the surprise victory of Frank Page.

    All I am saying is — give Page a chance

    Timothy George gets it!
    This is classified under the catagory of "required reading."
    We at the ARB would like to thank Dr. George for penning this wonderful piece.


    All ecclesial revolutions eventually run out of steam. New concerns emerge, and different leaders come to the fore. It is to early to tell whether the election of Frank Page as president of the Southern Baptist Convention signals such a change, but there are signs that a historic shift may be underway within America's largest Protestant denomination.

    The pastor of First Baptist Church in Taylors, South Carolina, Page won a first-ballot victory this summer against two prominent candidates with close ties to what is sometimes called the college a cardinals -- a close knit circle of Southern Baptist Convention leaders who have handpicked the denomination's recent presidents. Even Page was surprised by his election. Since the conservative resurgence began in 1979, only once, in 1994, has a candidate not supported by those leaders been elected to head the Southern Baptist Convention.

    Allen on Page, Mohler and Women


    Bob Allen's latest piece examines Dr. Albert Mohler's change of heart on the issue of women in the ministry. (Last week on this blog, we suggested that he visit with Dr. Mohler) This piece was a response to his piece about SBC President Frank Page's 26-year old dissertation, "Toward a Biblical Ethic of Women in Ministry."

    We have communicated with Allen a few times via e-mail. He insists that there wasn't anything sinister about the tip that led to his story and said that he was glad he got it before someone else "bit on it." Anyone who has observed the media understands that there is a desire to get a potentially explosive story out on the street or in his case, the Web, but Allen insists he was unaware that a similar story aimed at doing harm to Page was being shopped around various Baptist media circles.

    In today's story, he does say that he attempted to e-mail Frank Page (phone calls ususally work better) for the initial story. Like Mohler, Page has said that he has changed his mind about issues related to women in the minstry. This was a better story, although we wouldn't characterize Page's change of heart as a "flip-flop."
