    Christian Leader Embarrasses Universe!

    ...such was his exalted position!

    A top Southern Baptist leader resigned Tuesday over what was described as “a morally inappropriate relationship in the recent past.”
    Frank S. Page, 65, was president and chief executive of the Southern Baptist Convention’s executive committee. His resignation came in the form of a 300-word statement released Tuesday by committee chairman Stephen Rummage, Christianity Today reported.
    The exact nature of the “inappropriate relationship” was not disclosed.

    Page announced earlier in the day that he was retiring, but later said he needed to be more forthcoming about his departure, the Tennessean reported.

    "Prayers appreciated as I have announced my retirement. God bless you all for your precious friendship and prayers support over these years."

    8:26 PM - Mar 27, 2018 Nashville, TN

    • “As a result of a personal failing, I have embarrassed my family, my Lord, myself and the Kingdom,” Page said in a statement released by the Baptist Press, a Nashville-based official publication of the denomination.

    What was a retirement story this morning suddenly becomes much more.
    Page then admitted the reason behind his decision in a follow-up conversation Tuesday, the Tennessean reported.
    "Today, I spoke with Dr. Page and learned that his retirement announcement was precipitated by a morally inappropriate relationship in the recent past," said Rummage, the senior pastor of Bell Shoals Baptist Church in Brandon, Fla.

    According to the Tennessean, Page has served in his post since 2010, overseeing a $200 million annual budget for the Southern Baptists’ Cooperative Program.


    The Southern Baptist Convention connects some 47,000 Baptist churches across the U.S. and its territories, representing more than 15 million total congregants,
    the denomination’s website says.

    In the years of foruming gone by you have posted a lot of religious articles.

    Are you sure you aren't a closet Catholic?

    Poor Old TC. He is hoping if he says there is no God long enough there wont be. You really need to see someone about your Theophobia old chap. Just wishin and a hopen obviously is not working for you. That gnawing little thought "what if I'm wrong?" isn't going to go away.



    Here's a tip when you get to the pearly gates. No one does a contrite Christian better than a Merkin. No need to thank me. It is my duty to show you wayward lambs back to the fold.

    There is no god. There are no pearly gates. No heaven and no hell. Just worms and philosophy.

    There is right and there is wrong. Teach your children well.

    “Teach 'em what? Warring, militarism, and expanding empire? F*CK OFF - you're so full of shit”

    This is what huanglo had to say about my post, but he was too shy to say it in public, the fucking coward. Thanks for yet another feeble red repo Jeff, you limp fake.

    Well you obviously don't believe in Generalizations....Maybe too "self absorbed" in your own prejudices? Please don't dislocate your shoulder patting yourself on the back, as you strike another blow at those naughty Christians. Your own prejudice shines like an exploding sun as you admonish others for the same vice.
