Nevertheless, this is what I see as a typical Baptist reaction. Let me clarify that my roots in growing up are Baptist. It's also the reason I quit going to church for better than half my life. I am saddened and somewhat angered by such statements.
Recently I thought I learned my lesson from challenging a Pastor for I certainly don't want to disturb the flow of God's work. In this case I can't help myself and I have to speak up. I feel God wants me to because this is just wrong. I contacted Mr. Mohler and below is my e-mail to him.
If You agree with me I urge you to express yourself to Dr. Mohler as well. Be nice, expose your love for Christ, and let God do the rest. You can contact him here.
Side note - My UGA dawgs are in a bad way and face a pathetic UT that is playing above the talent level they possess. If we lose to the lowly Vols at home after the season we've had so far, a turd of epic proportions is going to hit the proverbial fan. Go Dawgs - please!
