The Southern Baptist Convention is a force to be reckoned with. As the largest Protestant denomination in the United States, with over 45,000 affiliate churches, it have been shaping and channeling conservative Christian sensibilities since the Civil War, when Southern Baptists split from the North so they could advocate on behalf of slave owners.
This may have once been true. However, by the election of an African-American as president of the Southern Baptist Convention we have moved way beyond this issue. I believe this is a mile-stone for us as Southern Baptists.
