The Eleventh Commandment has a stranglehold on the Southern Baptist Convention. We recently got an inadvertent illustration of how the Eleventh Commandment works through James Merritt’s Twitter feed.

It also, in depressing fashion, shows you how little integrity and meaningful thought Merritt (and, I suspect, those like him) actually hold and employ. Let’s look at it in a four-act structure.

Act I. The Outrage

Act II. The Eyebrow Raised

Act III. The Oops / Desperate Backpedal

Act 4. The Obvious Conclusion

Character Still Counts, indeed.  Is it any wonder the SBC is in such trouble?
