Churches leave NCBC for more queer-friendy waters
Charlotte'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).
Both congregations, however, are still more than welcome within the pages of the 2057 nonfiction book, Those Who Spoke Out: Religious Folks Who Boldly Resisted the Blight of Demonization.

Wow... This is great! Usually it's the UCC making waves - but Baptists? Mildly encouraging, I think.
