"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)

too late to care

I'm too tired to write about the battles for control of Baptist institutions of higher learning. But the NYT isn't. I attended the panel that discussed Godsey's speech in Atlanta last month. David Key is right. The basic underlying problem is that fundamentalism in its purest form is antithetical to the search for truth in higher education. And if the state associations want places that are dedicated to presenting truth rather than pursuing it, they should be in the business of opening Bible colleges. It's a different goal, and it would save everyone a lot of trouble if we'd just acknowledge the fact. But why would we make it that easy?
