The church founded by Rick Warren was kicked out of the SBC for having a woman pastor
"They’re experts at finding new ways to push people out of the faith."
All while crying about the rapid decline in membership. Then doubling down thinking the reason is they aren't J̵e̵s̵u̵s̵i̵n̵g̵ bigoting 𝘩𝘢𝘳𝘥 𝘦𝘯𝘰𝘶𝘨𝘩.

Well not 𝑦𝑜𝑢, demon Jezebel whore daughter of Eve.
Here we go again. Variations on a theme of 1 Timothy 2:11-12 and 1 Corinthians 14:34-35, where men are the bosses and women are the next best thing to non-persons. Pure misogyny, embodied in the Southern Baptist Convention.
And very likely one more reason why people are becoming disenchanted with religion.
Western Baptist Convention?
1 Timothy 2:12
"Sit down and shut up, chattel."
"They're experts at finding new ways to push people out of the faith."
You say that like it's a bad thing. Remember the words of Napoleon...
"Never interrupt an enemy when he is making a mistake."
Assuming members of the Convention scoot money to that parent organization, kicking out one of their biggest assemblies seems kind of self destructive, given that congregations nationwide are dwindling.
Satan is pleased. We hellions are laughing as we hoist a cold mug of Hellfire craft beer!
Religion; where women are worse than pedophiles, abusers and those who steal.
Also LGBT people are even worse than women.
Well, I gotta admire their commitment to being awful... 𝑤𝑎𝑖𝑡𝑎𝑚𝑖𝑛𝑢𝑡𝑒. No I don't. They're awful.
The southern baptist convention can as well throw the towel and join either the catholic* or the orthodox** church.
* Celibate but you can have sex discretly thanks to the power of confession.
** Can become a priest if married but not the reverse, see *.
"But Southern Baptists aren’t known for taking the rational approach. "
I hereby nominate Hemant for the understatement of the decade. If not the century. Or maybe even the millennium.
OT: Another (presumably) pro-life conservative has inadvertently exposed himself as the disgustingly anti-human fiend he is. https://www.thenewcivilrightsmovement.com/2023/02/watch-alaska-gop-lawmaker-says-its-a-benefit-to-society-when-child-abuse-is-fatal-because-theres-a-cost-savings/
Slightly OT: The girlfriend and I saw Tedeschi Trucks Band last night (Derek Trucks, son of Allman Brothers drummer Butch Trucks is lead guitar. ) We were pleasantly surprised to see an opening act, which was the Amy Ray Band. Amy Ray also happens to be 1/2 of the Indigo Girls. I couldn't really pin down her "spirituality" from the mix of songs played. But she did make a point of telling a story before she played her song "You Can't Beat That Deal", which I think many of you would quite enjoy! I know she is on Pandora.
TheoLOLogical Cachu Hwch in the most all-encompassing way.
More Christinainty being thrown against the wall to see what sticks, and who will applaud the spatter and will pay for the right to 'Call It Macaroni'.
"Doesn't anybody SCREEN THESE CALLS?!"
Splitting, and splitting, and splitting...
By far the most subdivided religion in the world, with so many thousands of denominations, branches, and subsects that the number is different every time I Google it, Christianity just can't seem to get along with itself. It's like a liquid that becomes less and less viscous, spreading out thinner and thinner, covering a larger area but actually losing its volume to evaporation.
Here's to Finally Dry Day.
