Watch this video of Dr. Jim Standridge, 76, of Immanuel Baptist Church in Skiatook, OK and ask yourself that question. In my opinion, fear is what drives right-wing extremist's motivations. That is why they hate gays, and foreigners and anyone different from themselves. Is that also why they stay in situations like this?
Would any self-respecting human being not stand up and walk out of that church after being told that they are "not worth 15 cents?" Apparently, the "Big Boy" did get up and leave. Good for him! I would love to hear what the other people he berates in this video think about it.
When all you have is fear and intimidation to keep your church together, haven't you already lost the "spiritual battle?"
