Well, if he wants to cast stones he would do well to look at the Southern Baptists themselves first (the writings of Wade Burleson are a good start). They are also ull of politics, corruption, and jockeying for titles and positions, from the Convention all the way down to the seminaries.
The difference with the Catholics and the Baptists are that the Church hierarchy makes it possible to reign the worst of this in when it is being abused, has been done in the case of some priests and bishops who overstepped their authority or what is proper for their office and did not respond to correction.
In the Baptist world, on the other hand, there is no real authority so the power-hungry or dissenting types simply declare themselves and their church to be “independent Baptists” or affiliate with another Baptist convention or group and go on doing things their own way, answering to their own authority or to the authority of the leader of the college, group, or “camp” they are affiliated with.
I’m a former Baptist and I have known Baptists who placed the writings, teachings, and opinions of men like Al Mohler, Jack Hyles, Bob Jones, John R. Rice, David Cloud, Jerry Fallwell, John McArthur or Marc Driscoll just as highly or more highly than many Catholics place the words and writings of the Pope. Baptists have all sortf of little hierarchies and political divisions, they just don’t like to admit it because too many of their pastors also want the congregation to believe that they (pastors) are the final authority on scripture and tradition for those in their church.
(Yes, I know that the men listed above are not all connected to eachother and that a follower of one is not likely to have much respect for all of the others, but they are some of the people who many Baptists do try to emulate and many individual churches have strong cults of personality around one or more of those people).
