Clarence G. Oliver, Jr., Earl Garrison, and David K. Pennington are all Baptists. These Baptist gentlemen all share a history of presiding over school districts which, as a matter of law and public policy, must (like Peter) deny Christ. And as plaintiffs in a current lawsuit, they're now leading an effort to discriminate against Christians on the basis of their religion.
By way of contrast, , president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, is now asking the question if sending one's children to a public school is even a permissible option anymore. "For Christians who take the Christian
worldview seriously and who understand the issues at stake," he says, "the answer
is increasingly no."
That's a pretty big gap.
