Well, I never thought I'd see the day a conservative Southern Baptist started writing about the similarities between the leadership of the Southern Baptist Convention and the Roman Catholic Church. But the president of the Evangelical Theological Society (a tenured Baylor professor) just returned to Catholicism (and resigned from the presidency of the ETS a week later), Kirstin Dunst is galavanting about dressed like Pocahontas in blue satin, and Golden State beat the Mavericks. So stranger things have happened. And Ben Cole at Baptist Blogger is taking on the task.
I'm looking forward to the series. I will say that this has been obvious to most moderate Baptists for quite some time (and by "quite some time," I mean at least 25 years). I will not comment on the trend of conservative evangelical professors of philosophy, theology, and such nudging one another towards Rome.
