Liberal Baptist has been posting some insightful blogs about the Baptist legacy.
The First Amendment is the Baptist legacy. At our nation's founding, Baptists were the most vocal, persistent and numerous advocates for separating church and state.
Unfortunately, some otherwise thoughtful Baptists have decided that "Resistance is futile." They see the juggernaut of theocracy approaching and, being of the majority faith with little to lose, have already made peace with it.
There is a price to pay for collaborating with theocrats. This generation may be able to live comfortably with theocracy, but another generation will surely revolt. Religious values that must be imposed by force of law are the dying gasps of a declining faith. Vibrant faith lives by the stength of persuasion and voluntary commitment.
