Gosh, Al Mohler, Please, For the Love of God, Shut Up

Evidently Mohler had something to say about the Papal election yesterday:

A Southern Baptist seminary president urged evangelicals not to get too caught up in all the excitement surrounding the naming of a new pope.“Evangelical Christians simply cannot accept the legitimacy of the papacy and must resist and reject claims of papal authority,” Albert Mohler, president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, said in a podcast commentary March 14. “To do otherwise would be to compromise biblical truth and reverse the Reformation.”

Al must not know this (and it’s amazingly sad that a Seminary President is so woefully ignorant), but

1- No Protestant or Evangelical that I know or have ever met accepts the ‘legitimacy’ of the papacy (in the sense of the Pope being their supreme leader). Al, you’re spitting into the wind and protesting something that doesn’t exist. Folk – even Protestants – watching the proceedings in Rome on the tv box is NOT papal adoration. Calm down, and chill out. And please, shut up.

2- No Protestant or Evangelical that I know or have ever met submits to papal authority. Al, you’re spitting into the wind and protesting something that doesn’t exist. Folk – even Protestants – watching the proceedings in Rome on the tv box is NOT papal adoration. Calm down, and chill out. And please, shut up.

3- The Reformation isn’t being reversed because, Al, you’re spitting into the wind and protesting something that doesn’t exist. Folk – even Protestants – watching the proceedings in Rome on the tv box is NOT papal adoration. Calm down, and chill out. And please, shut up.

Mohler is truly an embarrassment to Southern Baptists. Truly. I wish that he (and his kindred spirit Pat Robertson) would just retire and move to an island somewhere and spend their remaining days talking about themselves and wishing they could be in the public eye again. They love it so. They love the limelight and attention. That’s the only possible explanation for their unending dronings.

Al, you are no Reformer (though you fancy yourself one.  And I know Reformers and you’re the furthest thing from one to be sure).  And this isn’t the 16th century.  And the Pope isn’t the Antichrist.  Please, just stop.  Talking.

Southern Seminary’s Pandering and iPads

This came in the mail.  It speaks for itself.

Advertise a video for a conference being hosted by the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (where Al Mohler is president, you know, ‘Mr Ethics’), and you could win an iPad!

Let’s all sing the theme song of the Seminary together:  ‘Bribe them in, bribe them in, bribe them in from the fields of sin.  Bribe them in, bribe them in, bribe the wandering ones to Jesus’.  (Sung to the tune of ‘Bring them in’).
