Perhaps you should take another look at the situation, Patrick -- and read the link included with my question. Pay particular attention to the 4th and 6th paragraphs, which describe the context in which the church voted.

Do YOU have a link for your statement about Gregory, or is that unsubstantiated gossip?

The leadership of the church had already asked Stanley to reconsider. That is first hand info from someone close to the situtation.


Gregory left First Baptist Dallas with secatary following behind. He was called to the carpet about the affair. Later on came the divorce. This is not hear say. People who knew Gregory at the time knew what was happening.

He will probbally be a great educater. I am glad they are giving him this chance. I have heard him preach sevaral times in years past and I loved to hear him.

We get so caught up in these trivial matters that we lose focus on the people we are talking about. I know neither personally but I am sure they are both great guys. Both had been thru tough times and are still fighting.

Gregory was in a no win battle. He was follwing a giant. Crisswell's hand just did not want to leave the helm. That was unfortunate for all involved.

I understand, and always expect, you to exhibit the particular pathology that prevents you from acknowledging what you do not want to deal with and to shift focus to whatever suits your purposes. So be it, but YOU linked the story that reported him to be twice divorced. That was the first I heard of it. ABP used almost the same sentence, a simple biographical note, but left out that he was twice divorced. You may call this whatever you wish (apparently you wish to call it nothing) but it is a surprising and noteworthy matter.

I like to hear Gregory preach. I admire him for the reasons I listed earlier. He could have easily been a leading light in baptist life but for that stretch...

I'm sure Stanley, myself, Gregory and whomever else would be much better people if we all followed your orders. Does the Doctor ever have any counsel for herself?

This is a yawner, ML. You have the last word, as you always insist on doing.
