The Southern Baptist Convention, meeting in
Phoenix, AZ, is over, but not without a certain amount of controversy.
It seems that there was extensive discussion and disagreement over a
proposed resolution condemning the so-called
Alt-Right and racism. I
want to go on the record as saying I am against and I condemn racism in
every form, directed
at any person or group of people. However, the
mainstream news media labels everyone who is politically and/or
theologically conservative as Alt-Right.
Let me be clear. I was not at the SBC this year
and all I know is what I read (primarily from Baptist Press). If I had
been there, it is very likely I would have voted in favor of the
resolution. But, it seems to me, a better resolution
condemned the Alt-Right AND the Alt-Left. One is just as bad as the
other. Anyone who doubts the
dangers or even the existence of the
Alt-Left must have failed to see the news reports of violence on
college campuses across the nation in an attempt to deny free
speech. Or, the recent case of the far left radical
who attempted to
massacre a group of Republican Senators and House members who were
practicing for a
Let's condemn ALL racism, ALL violence, black,
white, brown (or any other color). And, don't shove your
Flag or your Black Lives Matter Flag in my face! I pledge allegiance to
only two flags. The
Stars and Stripes and the Christian Flag.
One more thing. Voting for Donald Trump doesn't
make you a bigot and voting for Hillary Clinton doesn't make
tolerant. There are LOTS of bigoted and intolerant (down right mean)
people in both parties.
Just a thought.....

against complex football defenses, or the problems of modern society."
