    Thanks for posting this.

    From the article:
    "Tennessee pastor Dean Haun resigned as an IMB trustee in November because he said joining the brief did not comport with IMB's mission and could be viewed as an improper alliance with followers of a religion that denies the Gospel."​

    What is most frustrating about this is that Pastor Haun does not seem to recognize that those who are ignorant of the purpose and meaning of amicus briefs should actually take steps to learn what they are all about instead of simply attacking people in ignorance.

    Pastor Haun probably is not IMB trustee material if he doesn't understand the importance of not being hypocritical on the matter of religious liberty.
