It's nice to see that Southern Baptists have so few real problems in their lives.

It's more likely that lots of young people--not all L, G, B, or T--will be finding their way out of the SBC and making it permanent.

"Way Out". Yes. Waaaaaay out there.

They should just change the name of their denomination to reflect the true nature of the SBC: Southern Bigoted Christians.
