[ # ] Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary Leases Land to the Republican Party!
February 13th, 2008 under Baptists, Christian Crap, Christianity, ChristianWalk, Church and State, Hypocrisy, Politics, violence, Walking Like Jesus

pattersonpaige.jpgThere’s currently a lawsuit filed against Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary by a former female Old Testament prof who was fired by seminary president Paige Patterson. She charges that Patterson discriminated against her because she is a woman. Not surprisingly, she argues that when Patterson became president of SWBTS, he assured her that her job was safe, only to fire her later. Patterson lie? How can that be.

Equally disturbing as the fact that Patterson was quoted the following about women, “everyone should own one.” A phrase every Southerner knows used to be said about African-Americans (and probably still is)…is the fact that the Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary leases property to the Republican Party. I can’t imagine how many of my Baptist forefathers and foremothers are rolling over in their graves right now. Misogyny—-yeah that’s terrible, but not really too unexpected. Church state issues—wow! But I’m honestly not too surprised.

Here’s a link to the lawsuit.

Here’s a link to discussion about the lawsuit at the SBC Outpost. The comments there are always a hoot!

Nevermind! Don’t waste your time at the Outpost. Not one reaction to the seminary leasing to the Republican Party.

Seems only Bruce Prescott and a guy named Mark Gstohl really care about the church/state issue.

They did not “lease property” to the Republicans, they rented a room for a meeting. As Bart Barber discovered in research, they offered the democratic party the same deal they gave the Republicans.

Leasing implies and ongoing relationship. They rented (Republicans paid for it) a room for a rally.

It is perfectly legal. They offered the same thing to the Dems.

No fan of Paige Patterson, but this rental thing is a non-starter. His comments about owning women were despicable.

Critics of Paige Patterson (count me in) have to be fair and honest.

Concentrate on your own generating when you might be behind
the wheel. As a single guy under age 21, you can approximate your potential savings
merely by reducing your present rate by 50 percent and then allowing for operstor
training or good student dscounts where appropriate.
Liffe style chajge lowers the cost of aut insurance.

Lifetime dog insurance ill cover your dog for its entire life.
Although there are some car insurance companies that still offer good deals.
It took six years of financial and intellectual preparation, but Eli Whitney went to college and graduated at

A fascinating discussion is worth comment. There’s no doubt that that you ought to write more on this subject, it might not be a taboo subject but typically folks don’t discuss such issues. To the next! Kind regards!!
