Another Letter From The Tallahassee Democrat
I was filled with admiration when I read of Father Dudley's decision to lead his flock toward the authority of scripture and away from apostasy. Such courage and conviction is all too rare within Christendom today.
This "man of God," Father Dudley, really is a man of God. As he astutely observed, the fundamental problem has nothing to do with sex, but involves whether the word of God is authoritative. Whenever we elevate anything, be it loyalty, unity, togetherness, political correctness, tolerance, or anything at all, above God, we are worshiping that virtue above God. That is idolatry and God has made it clear that we are to have no other gods before Him.
Father Dudley has determined that what is important to God is what should be important to us. May God bless him and his congregation. He has earned my respect, and that of all those who still believe that it is God, as He has revealed Himself in Holy Scripture, in whom our ultimate allegiance is to be placed.
