Taking Advantage of Death: Inappropriate Blogging
Read his words below. They really do reflect poor taste and inappropriate behavior in blogging.
Addie Davis, the first Southern Baptist woman to be ordained as a pastor, recently died. Associated Baptist Press and Ethics Daily have printed stories about her. Adrian Rogers, first president in the fundamentalist takeover of the SBC -- a movement that creedally [sic] prohibited Southern Baptists from ordaining women to serve as pastors, preceeded [sic] her in death by a short time. Now that the two of them have met their maker, I am confident that they both clearly see what their Lord meant when he said, "The first shall be last, and the last shall be first."Since Bruce took down his comments, let me challenge you to email him, as well as Ethics Daily (which you can do by clicking on their "Byte Back" tab), who advertises his blog on their site, and let them know how exploitative and unChristlike this is. As bloggers we have a responsibility to hold one another accountable for such despicable behavior.
And for the future, if you are thinking of using someone's death to make a point, just don't. Realize that the families of their loved ones deserve more respect.
