The representatives of the Georgia (Southern) Baptist Convention have an interesting quandary, in my opinion. They probably don't see it. In one case they support a member of a GBC church who was fired, ostensibly for violating the city of Atlanta's "chain of command" or reporting process. In another case they do not support a member of a GBC church who was fired, ostensibly for violating their own Brewton-Parker College's chain of command or reporting process. In the first case, the GBC organized a rally at the Georgia State Capitol to stand for the religious rights of the person fired, Atlanta Fire Chief Kelvin Cochran. The GBC contends that Cochran was actually fired for expressing his beliefs in a self-published book about biblical sexuality. In the second case, the GBC has been quiet on and done nothing about the firing of Brewton-Parker College Vice-President C. B. Scott, who very well can also be represented as being fired for expressing his beliefs.
It's hard to get the truth from way over here -- and especially when it is one person's story against another. But it sure looks like the GBC has a problem deciding when to support a person for expressing his beliefs -- and when to fire him. Maybe they ought to take a closer look.
Consistency, thou art a jewel.
