The Southern Baptists Convention pushes an Anti-Gay Resolution

The Southern Baptists has gone out of their way to continue their hateful stance against us. They have passed a resolution that opposes marriage equality and pushes the notion that our rights are not civil rights.

Here's more:

The resolution acknowledges that gays and lesbians sometimes experience “unique struggles” but declares that they lack the “distinguishing features of classes entitled to special protections.”
“It is regrettable that homosexual rights activists and those who are promoting the recognition of ‘same-sex marriage’ have misappropriated the rhetoric of the Civil Rights Movement,” the resolution states.

Another resolution passed on Wednesday is intended to protect religious liberty. It includes a call for the U.S. Justice Department to cease efforts to overturn the Defense of Marriage Act and for the Obama administration to ensure that military personnel and chaplains can freely express their religious convictions about homosexuality.
It's a shame to see this group fight to promote hatred and discord. And to think, these are God's people.

The silver lining to this, if you will, is that the SBC is actually seeing declining membership. It is an accelerating trend over the past five years.

The same is true of Catholics too!

Can we yank away their tax exemptions now?

Perhaps God yanked their endorsement several decades ago. Maybe that's the reason for their collective stupid actions.
