Change.org Petition - Make TSCC Accountable

I've been angry today over the S. Baptist scandal, thinking about all that the COB gets away with and all these other faiths get away with under a non-profit status in this nation. I saw this petition and donated some $$. I don't know if they will get anywhere but it felt a little cathartic to do something besides beauch about it.

I want to sign this. But I can't shake the feeling of someone from TSCMC going through the list and finding the "active" members. I'm a nobody, and yet, I still feel... targeted.

I don't blame you. If you still have some skin in the game, no sense adding drama to your life.

I would love to be called in for something like this. Who's to blame when exercising your constitutional rights is considered a crime against the church?

I had the same thought when I signed it. Honestly though, why let someone (bishop, SP) dictate your beliefs through fear and intimidation? Whats the worst thing that could happen? Excommunication if you don't recant? Good. Bring it.

I signed it and shared the link with others.
