Baptist Press has two more articles on conflict at Broadway Baptist Church in Fort Worth where the Pastor survived a vote for dismissal (read them here and here). I cite this not to revel in their troubles (though it is interesting how the moderate Baptist Press so often enjoys reporting on trouble in conservative churches). I am intrigued by the fact that even an arch-moderate, post-SBC church like this one still has members who wince at the uncritical acceptance of homosexual practice among its members. It also illustrates the confusion that comes with moderate-liberal stress on "freedom" over "purity."
