Some of you may have seen the CNN news segment with Doug Pagitt and John Macarther that was on my blog post " 'Truth Wars' declares yoga a battlefield!" . It seems that, as rediculous as it is, there has been some fallout close to my home because of that, along with the comments made by Mark Driscoll towards Pagitt at the Southestern Seminary hosted Convergence Conference. Scheduled to speak at a conference on Oct. 16, the invitation to Pagitt has been revoked.

It seems that Baptists in NC (and outside) stricken by fear at the thought that new ideas that Pagitt would bring would allow people to think for themselves. Oh well for autonomy and priesthood of the believer. Lesson to be learned: Don't get on Macarther or Driscoll's radar...for what they say is gospel!
