From housecoats to statesmanship?
Typically those are bloggers who live with their mother and wear a housecoat during the day. Just ignore them, but I apologize if you are hurt by anything that they might say about me or indirectly about you.
Enid, Oklahoma, pastor Wade Burleson, well known for his blogging, responded calmly:
One of the things that turns leaders into statesmen is the ability to be gracious to all, even those who criticize. Regardless of whether or not the proposed NAMB President has the temperament to handle the criticism that will come his way, it would be helpful for him to be gently reminded that it is both inconsistent and illogical to call his critics “bloggers who live with their mother and wear housecoats” and then “apologize for the hurt” those bloggers cause. Criticism from respected leaders hurts. To publicly disrespect the character of one’s critics and then turn around and acknowledge their criticism hurts is a fallacy. It’s best to either remain silent in the face of criticism or answer the criticism while displaying respect for the critics.
Leaders who turn into statesmen learn this lesson quickly. I am hopeful Dr. Ezell learns this lesson quicker than most.
