Frank Page, the former president and CEO of the Southern Baptist Convention, revealed this week that he decided to resign his position over a “morally inappropriate relationship” he’d had with an unspecified person or persons.

Local news station WYFF 4 reports that Page initially announced that he was retiring from his post as head of the SBC on Monday — and then released a statement on Tuesday afternoon acknowledging that an “inappropriate relationship” was the real reason for his resignation.

Page now says he announced his retirement without giving the full reason to protect his family’s privacy.

“Out of a desire to protect my family and those I have hurt, I initially announced my retirement earlier today without a complete explanation,” he says. “However, after further wrestling with my personal indiscretion, it became apparent to me that this situation must be acknowledged in a more forthright manner. It is my most earnest desire in the days to come to rebuild the fabric of trust with my wife and daughters, those who know me best and love me most.”

In 2014, Page supported kicking the New Heart Community Church out of the SBC because its pastor, Danny Cortez, who announced that he had changed his views on the acceptance of homosexuals in his congregation.

“When you love someone, you tell them the truth about their actions,” Page said at the time. “By its action on behalf of the convention, the Executive Committee is telling New Heart that its failure to condemn homosexuality breaks the heart of God.”

Trump is known to quote Levin frequently, though the citations often make the president look worse.

"We also realize that the problems of racial injustice and economic injustice cannot be solved without a radical redistribution of political and economic power."

—Martin Luther King Jr., 1967

This Martin Luther King Jr. Day comes as moderate Democrats, falling in line behind former vice president Joe Biden, are warning that the party risks re-electing Donald Trump if it nominates too radical a candidate for president — by which they mean someone like Senators Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren.

Harvard law professor Laurence Tribe catches Alan Dershowitz in humiliating hypocrisy: ‘He’s not to be trusted’

Published

on

Harvard Constitutional law professor Laurence Tribe called out President Donald Trump's lawyer, Alan Dershowitz, Sunday on Twitter, noting that his opinions seem to evolve depending on who he's defending.

Dershowitz is on a kind of press junket for the president, defending him in various media appearances. The former lawyer to Jeffrey Epstein is handling Trump's defense as it pertains to the abuse of power. Dershowitz thinks that charge has no basis in law. In fact, impeachment trials aren't actually legal proceedings, they're political proceedings, because the Justice Department claimed that Trump can't be indicted under the law while he's president.
