The Abortion of the Indiana-Kentucky Initiative
I have receieved reports from from both ends of the spectrum that yesterday's report that the Exec Committee of the General Board disqualifying two of three points of the Indiana Initiative was inaccurate. It is appears that paragraphs two and three were withdrawn by Indiana (the ones regarding non-geographic regions) after legal councel.
What I am not clear on--and would appreciate reader's help regarding--is whose legal counsel? If it was from Valley Forge, then it may be the best self-defensive legal counsel your mission money can buy.
Do I trust these guys? After again hearing their prattle during the Southern California Horse and Pony Show--the answer is NO. In particular, the evidence that Wright-Riggins simply lied to us on some matters regarding Native American ministries is overwhelming.
Keep posted, especially on the outcome of the key vote on the first paragraph. If it is defeated, it is the end of the ABC as we know it:
"We submit to the teaching of Scripture that God’s intended design for sexual intimacy places it within the context of marriage between one man and one woman, and acknowledge that the practice of homosexuality is incompatible with Christian teaching."
