    To add to the irony of the RNS column… Tim Cook’s number two person at Apple is… wait for it… a woman.

  2. Michael says:

    and a very accomplished one at that…

  3. Steve says:

    No fan of Paige Patterson but sorry, I’m finding it hard to see the need to compare Tim Cook to him particularly when it comes to gender issues. Obviously Tim Cook is confused himself. Its like comparing apples to mushrooms. Homosexuality used to be considered a sin but now the husband/husband relationship is being shoved upon us even in the church where it doesn’t belong. Oh my, even the pope thinks its great to be gay now.

  4. Josh The Baptist says:

    The SBC should stop funding Southwestern. They can do what they want, but they have to be accountable to those giving that pay the salaries. No one agreed to continue to pay for Paige’s cushy retirement and housing. Remove Cooperative Program giving from SWBTS, problem solved.

    From here, mean old lady that i am, thus sounds like an exlnt solution. Just make sure that every fall every student gets a copy of the RNS article linked along with a copy of a campus map identifying the Patterson residence…

  6. Josh The Baptist says:

    Em, Southern Baptists around the country are paying his salary from our missions offering. He has to go.

  7. Michael says:

    Em just solved the problem… 🙂

  8. The New Victor says:

    Not to pick a nit, but if Tim Cook (or any other CEO) were fired for misconduct short of criminal, they would still get a golden parachute, just not as large as if they left voluntarily. It’s actually quite remarkable how lucrative even the lesser golden parachute compensation is.

  9. Steve says:

    John 20:29@#6 – No defense of Patterson here but RNS has their own LGBT-rights advocacy bias that should be disclosed if you want every student to get a copy of their article.

  10. Duane Arnold says:


    We get it, yes, Tim Cook is gay. Substitute the name of any other straight Silicon Valley executive and the analogy remains the same…

  11. Josh The Baptist says:

    I don’t think Steve was talking about Tim Cook’s gayness, but Jonathon Merritt’s gayness, and his long-running agenda against “conservative” Christians.

  12. Josh The Baptist says:

    Everybody else having to re-enter their name and email every time you comment?

  13. Michael says:

    Duane was having an issue with that the other day…

  14. Duane Arnold says:

    #13 Josh

    Yes, just started last week…

  15. Martin Luther's Disciple says:

    I have the same issue also. At my age remembering my name is a problem 🙂

  16. Michael says:

    I just changed something on the backend…see if it works now…

  17. Josh The Baptist says:

    Just checking…

  18. Martin Luther's Disciple says:

    Its Ok on my phone. Let me check the computer.

  19. Martin Luther's Disciple says:

    Let me see if it holds my info

  20. Martin Luther's Disciple says:

    No, must still re type the info. But that is better than being blocked earlier.

  21. Josh The Baptist says:

    Nope – Still retyping.

  22. Steve says:

    Josh @12,

    Yes, it’s a combination of the author Johnathan Merritt being gay, CEO Tim Cook being gay, the RNS accepting grants from LGBT advocate groups and the timing of the pope talking to another gay priest that its cool to be gay. Let’s not kid ourselves here with the tremendous progressive forces capitalizing on the failures of conservative Christians to advance their gay agenda. Again, I repeat for the record I’m no fan of Patterson and I’m glad he was removed.

    Been Away. Trying to catch up. This article was one of many that caught my eye.
    Loved this excerpt from the article for which you gave the link:

    “Which is to say that many of the secular communities in America that Southern Baptists have painted as evil possess more moral courage than they do.”

    Christendom has such an awful face to the secular world with its many factions, its love of money and its coldness toward those that should have been won with Christ’s love. Ironically, it is the secular world that often identifies the awfulness and decries it.
