More on Latest Ruling

April 13, 2009

A couple of items are out about last week's newest legal victory for Windermere Baptist Conference Center. Windermere has a press release, which can be read here. Word&Way has an article about the ruling. The Pathway has not put out its spin yet, perhaps because they are trying to figure out what their new story should be since they have been pointing to this case as why they were not worried about losing the other lawsuit against Windermere.

With MBC appeals probably coming after multiple losses, an Ethics Daily article last month about the MBC deserves consideration. The piece documented how the MBC has used Cooperative Program money to fund its legal efforts, despite promising not to do so. Will more missions money be used to fund the appeals? All of this also makes last week's column by MBC Executive Director David Tolliver quite interesting. He writes about why the CP is important and what ministries it supports. However, he forgot to mention lawsuits as part of what it is spent on. Missouri Baptists deserve to be told how their missions money is being spent.
