That picture really doesn't do justice to the jolly young elf Dr. Bauder is, nor to the spectacular handlebar mustasche he's rocking these days.

"Oh, great.  Southern Baptists finally figure out the fundamentals, and now they think they own the place."

"I wonder what's for lunch.  Hope it's not that casserole again."

"How was I to know that this would prove I'm a convergent?"

I hope the FBFI doesn't find out about this . . .

Institutional Director ...  to two visiting Psychiatrists (Drs Patterson and Mohler):

"This fundamentalist is sooo dangerous that we keep him always in a straitjacket in this padded room"

  • Mohler: "I'm gonna offer Bauder a job"
  • Bauder: "I would rather be a custodian is a Christian Day School than a Southern Baptist"

I see somebody went through (within the past 15 minutes) and systematically "disliked" every single prospective meme. No sense of humor? How long until this comment is disliked, too!?

Whew, I disliked the ones that didn't have a dislike so no one would feel left out!  :^)

Seriously, the dislikes are no surprise in that the debates between FBFI-types and non-BFI-types have been intense, and the ones that were "disliked" prior to my action were ones joking about the BFI.  Do the math. 

Funny thing is that in his Friday missives, Dr. Bauder notes he's a member, I believe, and he's spoken at their conferences.  Go figure.

Go ahead, take the picture! No matter what, I'll likely be shot by my own people for being here, anyway.

"Talk to the mustasche, buddy!"

"Now, brothers, let's talk about separation."

How come Mohler has two bottles of water and Patterson and I only have one each?

Dr. Bauder clearly wants to make a beeline for the book table.
