Bloggers at the Southern Baptist Convention

The crises and controversies that the author talks about are too inside Baptist baseball for me to have a informed opinion about, but I thought it was interesting to read about the impact that blogging is having on the leadership of such a large denomination.

Don’t Stop Believing by Michael Erard – The Texas Observer

Bloggers have become the new Baptist bogeymen. For non-Baptists, their ascendance may well mean that the voice of the Southern Baptist Convention, a potent political force for decades, will become more diffuse, less able to coordinate its attacks on secular culture, and less powerful in national politics.At this convention, the young renegades have a plan for the next step in their campaign. It will be led by Cole, using skills he mastered when he was a protégé of the very leaders he now attacks.
