Straw men being torn to shreds daily on Baptist Board. Speaking off the record and under the cloak of anonymity several knowledgeable observers of the Baptist Board are whispering in hushed tones that straw men don't stand a chance on the Baptist Board anymore. It seems that several straw men are introduced regularly in various threads. And in almost the very next sentence, and sometimes in the very same sentence, the hapless straw man is ripped into confetti and then people jump up and down on the confetti and all but posting in all capital letters. Noted one commentator on the human condition, there is just no pity for straw men anymore--straw men are the new cannon fodder of blogs and message boards, the disposable man of the internet. Sadly, you just have to stand back and watch because the slaughter is so intense that it defies logic. It is an example of the depravity of the human mind and how Americans are drifting away from the belief that there is a freedom of conscience and that discussion and debate do not involve attacking defenseless straw men. Isn't America being lost? Don't straw men deserve better?
