This Is Just Too Ironic!

This article appeared recently in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. I will offer no commentary on it, just let it speak for itself.

Mercer President Ends Rocky Career
Kirby Godsey has decided to end his 26-year reign as president of Baptist-founded Mercer University. He’s been an important figure in Georgia’s educational circles, probably best known for his prickly relationship with fundamentalists.

A moderate within the nation’s largest Protestant denomination, Godsey angered many conservative churchgoers back in 1996 when he wrote a book that challenged the precept of biblical literalism.

State Sen. Cecil Staton (R-Macon) thought it fitting to honor Godsey’s career and “unimpeachable reputation for integrity, intelligence, fairness and kindness.”

So with two Democratic colleagues, Staton introduced a resolution in the Senate saying just that.

Such measures are unthinkingly assigned a numerical identity in order of submission. The Godsey resolution is SR 666.
