John MacArthur sure knows how to make the boys on the front row squirm!
James Kessler nailed it with this tweet.
Eric Pazdziora offered kind words of encouragement to those whom T4G has stomped on. If you have a Twitter account, look Eric up. He is a great musician and has a nice hymn from his album that accompanies this tweet.

Bob Allen of Baptist News Global, has written a good account of the Mahany scandal at T4G. He said in part:
“One of the protestors, Pam Palmer of Hagerstown, Md., told local media that after her 3-year-old daughter was abused by a teenage boy who was eventually convicted, a pastor serving under Mahaney told her family not to call the police.
In introducing Mahaney at the conference, Albert Mohler, president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, praised his friend as a model of Christian endurance.”

Mark Ammerman, pastor of Grace Evangelical Congregational Church in Lancaster, PA wrote the following statement. It can be found at The Wartburg Watch here.

Todd Pruitt, a PCA pastor and member of the Mortification of Spin podcast has written three articles this week appealing for the removal of C.J. Mahaney from his speaking duties and also from the T4G organization. Even though the numerous appeals from many have fallen on deaf ears, we thank Mr. Pruitt for his efforts.
