Churches leave NCBC for more queer-friendy waters

by Jeremy Hooper

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).

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.

Your thoughts

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