The SBC doesn't practice institutionalized racism. The actions of one does not constitute the opinion of the whole, thus he is being asked to resign.

He is just an example. But, interestingly enough, in charge of all ETHICS of the Southern baptists.

Wake up, please. Go and find out when, where, and especialy why the Southern baptists came into existance....how they split off from the Baptist synod.
Your ears will pop.

And, they remain unchanged today, as seen in the headlne just above.
Mr Land is not "just one;" individual. He is President of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission.

What don't you get here?
