I dont get this part:

“Danny Douglas, pastor of Longview Baptist Church in Onida, Arkansas. “It’s one thing to say you welcome a Calvinist into your church. Of course we’d welcome one if he came, but we are going to be honest with him about his sin. For him to call himself a Christian and yet remain a Calvinist is just wrong. “

Why in the world would a Baptist not be able to confront a calvinist about their sin? Maybe I have not been long enough in the theological trenches but come on?

I know that there are some serious difference between a Calvinist and an Armenian do any of the rise to the level of heresy? I enjoy a good debate about the elect as much as the next guy but I seriously doubt if I met a person who displayed the fruits of the spirit, professed the faith, and was God centered in their life I would think they’re unsaved! even though they are wrong on election ;)

I think the site and article are satire. The author is satirizing the way people view the "dreaded" Calvinism the same way we preach against homosexuality.

I was hauled into arguing against these jokes a lot before I finally caught on. 8~)
