The Official Establishment Blog (what else could one call the only prominent Southern Baptist blog endorsed by SBC Executive Committee President Morris Chapman, IMB President Jerry Rankin, and Lifeway President Thom Rainer?) has published a personal attack against Dr. Paige Patterson. See endorsements here. The personal attack is in this post, snidely hidden in the "unrelated news" links at the end. So now, just to keep count, we're up to two members of the Great Commission Council—Richard Land and Paige Patterson—who have been maligned by this blog that has been publicly endorsed by three other members of the Great Commission Council. And for what it is worth, although the author of the piece is a student at Baylor University, we've seen no exposé regarding the size, appointments, or expense of the mansion provided for the president of that institution. As a final bonus, I note the following. I first met Paige Patterson when he came to preach at my church. It was several years ago. His financial requirements for coming? None.
