Southern Baptist contention

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, Dr. R. Albert Mohler, Jr., 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.
