An recent article at a Southern Baptist oriented blog used the term “Baptist Bogeyman” to refer to immaterial things Southern Baptist get worked up about, creating “bogeymen” to fight while ignoring the true enemy. It’s that whole “you wrestle not against flesh and blood” thing. It’s also that whole “tearing down strawmen” thing.

For their combined work on the Christian Index opinion piece “The Calvinists are here” editor Gerald Harris and Plumpkins (who were more than happy to share the opinions therein) win the first ever “Bogeyman of the Month” award.
