Mohler Misleads at Injustice Sunday

Al Mohler, once described as the "Baptist pope" after he authored a creed that led to the dismissal of dozens of career missionaries, led the charge for Southern Baptists at "Injustice Sunday." Here's what Reuters said about his presentation:
During the broadcast, Dr. Al Mohler, president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, portrayed minority Democrats and "about six or eight very squishy Republicans" as obstructionists to judicial appointments.

Mohler said those senators need to hear from conservatives who are concerned about the courts and blocked judicial appointments.

"Let them know that you don't want them to delay and you don't want them to postpone," Mohler said. "Tell them that you care and that you will remember how they vote."

Among those "six or eight very squishy Republicans" is Senator John McCain -- not a man known to cave-in under pressure.

For anyone who might think it wise to examine Mohler's steadfastness and integrity before following him into battle, I would advise viewing the filmed documentary of Mohler's takeover as president of Southern Seminary. The film is titled, Battle for the Minds: A Controversial Film about Fundamentalism and Women by Steven Lipscomb. Here's a phone number where you can obtain a copy 1-800-343-5540.

What "creed" did Mohler write? It is an official SBC document? Was this part of the fundie takeover you often mention?

jtr,

Mohler was the author of the 2000 revision of the Baptist Faith & Message statement. It was one of the major objectives of the Fundamentalist takeover of the SBC.

Here's a link to more information.

Bruce, the link to "The Chief Sin of Fundamentalism" at the page you linked is broken.
