Georgia Baptist Convention Bans Blogging

Good luck with that. Let me know how it works out.

That is the silliest thing that I have ever heard.

My first hope was that this was from the Lark. After all, I could see that happening. Then, upon realization that no, this is in fact real, I hoped it was the nation. After all, they've been having some political trouble. Alas, no. It is my own home state.

So, realizing the logical end of this, books and the written word in general are also a "tool for personal attacks upon other Christian Brothers and Sisters", I'm going to see if I can convince my Baptist friends to become voluntarily illiterate. I'm sure there professors will love it.

It's all about stifling dissent, or else the resolution would have called for civility in all forms of media, including telephone calls, not just blogs.

Someone is sadly misinformed. The Georgia Baptist Convention does not have the authority or inclination to "ban blogging." The resolution condemned blogging when used as a source of personal attacks on Christian brothers. It is amazing how people misinterpret things!
