Churches leave NCBC for more queer-friendy waters

Picture 5-41Charlotte's St. John's Baptist Church has become the second North Carolina congregation in as many weeks to withdraw from the State Baptist Convention, due to the NCBC's November vote forbidding gay-accepting churches (Park Road Baptist was the other to withdraw).
