Another YEC to watch

"If that becomes a trend, the evangelical community becomes the largest political voice not only in the state of Texas, but America. I think that's a positive thing because evangelical Christians stand for what's right."

--Rev. Ryan Rush, senior pastor of Bannockburn Baptist Church in Austin, speaking after the passage of a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage and civil unions in Texas.

This is the church that hosted an ICR seminar at the same time as the NTSE in 1996. At the NTSE, scientists and philosophers from many persuasions assembled to debate what was to become the ID movement. There were about 60 or 70 of us in attendance. The Bannockburn seminar, held just down the street, was attended by several thousand Texas "right thinking evangelical Christians."

Watch for more Ryan Rush in the next few years as the YECs hasten to consolidate their position. He, after all, KNOWS the mind of God on many matters.

Please note that this post is NOT about the merits or demerits of the Texas vote or the Texas constitutional amendment. That's a whole nother ballgame. <G>
