New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - November 29, 1985, New Braunfels, Texas Religious focus Hvrald-Zeltwif Friday, November 29, 1985 Page SA Southern Baptists feel fallout from summer By GEORGEW. CORNELL AP Religion Writer That vast midsummer collision among Southern Baptists still is reverberating, the fallout including a threatened lawsuit, charges of “heresy” and proposed bylaw changes. All the while, a peace committee has pleaded for quiet restraint, and to a degree, has obtained it, except for signs of the underlying ferment that keep cropping up. The banked tensions stem from last June’s convention in Dallas at which the president, the Rev Charles Stanley, overruled a majority vote of the record-size convention of 45,000. He ruled the result out-of-order and void, even though he himself earlier had ordered the ballot to clarify an uncertain standing vote In a denomination that prides itself on democracy, the one-man squelching of the majority has fueled a running controversy, with a Georgia couple threatening a lawsuit unless the procedureis nullified. But the denomination’s executive committee refused to do that, deciding to affirm the challenged proceedings despite, it said, “whatever mistakes may have occurred.’’ Robert S. Crowder of Birmingham, who with his wife had retained an attorney to press the matter, said he was “heartbroken’’ that the committee failed its “duty and responsibility” in the matter. His attorney, Emmit J. Bondurant of Atlanta, contended that convention “messengers” clearly had the “power to amend” any report, but “were thwarted in their effort to do so” by chair rulings. Southern Baptist bylaws were “run roughshod over” by the “arbitrary and ... fundamentally illegal and unfair rulings” by Stanley, the attorney contended in presenting Crowder’s plea to the executive committee Bondurant said the denomination’s “representative form of government ... depends upon the integrity of the procedures guaranteeing" majority rule, but it “was denied the messengers of the Dallas convert lion.” The partisan conflict in the 14 million-member denomination, the largest in American Protestantism involves a drive by a resurgent fun damentalist wing, charging liberalism in denominational institu tions, to achieve control In the controversial vote, a majori ty held that the convention could substitute an entire slate for a com mittee. chosen through presidential appointive powers, that picks trustees overseeing agencies and in stitutions Stanley, earlier re-elected as the fundamentalist incumbent, had sub nutted the issue to to a ballot, but when the result was announced, ruled it out-of-order, backed by his parliamentarian, refusing to recognize floor objections However, the denomination's executive committee rebuffed Crowder's protest to the procedures, affirming them and declaring its own decision “makes a1) procedural defects moot, if any occurred ” At the same time. a proposal to revise a key bylaw- 16 to specify that alternate nominations can be made ti Worship at the church of your choice Briefly Local Assembles De Dios (Spanish Assembly of God), 255 W Commerce St Sunday school 5 30 p m, evangelistic service 6 30 p m Saturday 6 30 p rn.
