Southern Baptists Set for a Notable First

Jun 18, 2012 | Posted by: Mr_Bill | Full story: www.nytimes.com

The Southern Baptist Convention, a denomination born in 1845 in defense of slavery and a spiritual home to white supremacists for much of the 20th century, is poised to elect its first African-American president.

The Rev. Fred Luter Jr., 55, a New Orleans pastor who got his start preaching on the streets of the Lower Ninth Ward, is expected to be the only candidate for office on Tuesday when Southern Baptists gather here for their annual meeting.

After laying with the Devil, can you come up clean?

At least this is a first step for a huge flock of lost sheep. The 'Southern Baptist' "Religion" is no longer walking away from God and toward Satan. They may not join their own parents in Hell.

It was the way of things at the time for southern groups to split off from northern groups and a cheap shot to cast southern baptist as created in defense of slavery but it is mr bill so I am not surprised.

What changed was that they wanted slave holders to be able to hold church positions and tried to establish a policy of neutrality towards slavery. But that is not the point, the point is the people who did that are dead and the people running the church renounced the racist roots of the split and apologized for its past defense of slavery, segregation, and white supremacism. Today 20% of the churches congregations are majority minority membership. So like I say it is a cheap shot and a divisive one.

Yep. It's true. When they took at least half the churches they changed the rules and became satanic DICtators that worship their genitals and mammon wallets. Pretty much like the Catholics and shoved Jesus out of the picture and became the mammon middle man. And those liars call themselves,'Christians'. Don't believe me? Look up: Priesthood of the Believer.

You beat them to it with that race-baiting post, Scarey. Following the Rightie playbook? Start the race-baiting, then try to blame the 'other side' for it? LOL

Yes, you are. Here's what you posted, even though there was no racial discussion going on:

"..loons on the left will figure out a way to make THIS look racist, too."

Yes, I'd call that a form of race baiting. You brought race into the discussion in a provocative way.

What's your explanation?
