Maybe many of their leaders were/are Baptists since we seem to be pretty good at engineering church splits at the drop of the hat! Don't like the color of the carpets...Let's form a new church! Are carpets scriptural? No way...Let's form a new church in a building that doesn't have them! :smilewinkgrin:
If it ain't broke, break it till it is!! :smilewinkgrin:

Thank's to the goofy "two senators per state" system, dividing up states in a particular part of the country would shift the balance of power in congress. If the industrial states were to divide it would shift power from the corn states to population centers - probably a good thing.
