Follow-up to story on Mississippi Baptist church vote to exclude blacks

LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]wyldraven)

There is a new version of the story on the newspaper website.

Pastor claims church voted to reject black membership, resigns

This part is what seems to be new to the story. The church is claiming now that the vote never occurred, and that the pastor is trying to harm the church.

After the Daily Journal contacted Fellowship Baptist members, they gathered Aug. 17 to form a response. Mike Dillard, who acted as spokesperson for the church, said the congregation "categorically denies" accusations that the church took such a vote and feels the charge is an attempt by a party to do them harm.
You can compare this to the Google cache of the original story here. From the original version:
Fellowship Baptist Church members were contacted for this article but declined to comment.

A follow-on to the Katherine Harris story...


Rep. Harris Condemns Separation of Church, State. An excerpt:

ORLANDO, Aug. 25 -- Rep. Katherine Harris (R-Fla.) said this week that God did not intend for the United States to be a "nation of secular laws" and that the separation of church and state is a "lie we have been told" to keep religious people out of politics.

"If you're not electing Christians, then in essence you are going to legislate sin," Harris told interviewers from the Florida Baptist Witness, the weekly journal of the Florida Baptist State Convention. She cited abortion and same-sex marriage as examples of that sin.

I hate the word Dominionist, because it creates a false dichotomy. But, in the interest of keeping the peace, this is perhaps one of the better examples of a "Dominionist" as you'll see.

Overgrazing the flock


I know this community mainly focuses on the evil dominionists, but I found an article of curious proportions.

Religion, is it making us fat?
