But, why? I'm not familiar with the teachings of either church.
Usually, I stay away from the religious forums. I became interested in the FLDS story and began to notice the animosity, especially in Saundra Duffy's posts, for example:
"I want to know if this judge is a Baptist. The reason Im asking is because they used Baptist buses to cart away the children and Baptists volunteered to care for the children after they were rounded up at gunpoint. Furthermore, I want to know how many of the law enforcement thugs who went in there were Baptists . . . thinking they are doing God a great big favor!"
Personally, I thought it was very nice for the Baptist church to offer its buses on a school day when school buses were transporting school children, but some took that as offensive. Why?
I think you missed the point that Huckabee was seen as stirring the pot against the Mormons for political purposes, when he made comments against the FLDS. Many of the anti-FLDS posters were former Hucksters, or were influenced by the Hucksters.
Hmm, lets change the wording a little : )
"Personally, I thought it was very nice for the Baptist church to offer its buses to transport Jews to be gassed on a school day when school buses were transporting school children, but some took that as offensive. Why?"
It all depends on your point of view. If you think that taking the children away from their parents was a good thing then yes the Baptists did a good humane thing. If you think that taking Children away from their parents is an evil and vile thing to do then anyone who aids them is doing an evil and vile thing too. Now is it clear?
I was raised in the Southern Baptist church in Missouri. Good people. So why were Baptists so heavily involved in this raid?
I wrote a letter to the pastor of the First Baptist Church in El Dorado TX. I mean, what was he thinking? How much were the Baptists paid for the use of their buses? I think they thought they were doing God a favor by rounding up all those FLDS kids at gunpoint. Unfortunately, they forgot about the Constitution in their zeal to do God’s bidding.
