During much of the IMB controversy, I've heard talk about Landmarkism. I thought I would just go ahead and confess, before everyone finds out themselves, that the father of the Landmark movement, James Madison Pendleton is my great, great, great, great something-or-other. In 1854 he authored a work entitled, "An Old Landmark Reset" which became an impetus for the campaign within the Southern Baptist Convention. Along with Pappy Pen were Amos Dayton and James Graves, who became known as "The Great Triumverate" of the Landmark movement. Pendleton didn't work alone, so it isn't entirely the fault of my ancestry. Go ahead, hurl your remarks. Just don't tell me that we favor and we'll all get along.
