22. Yet, he remains a Sunday School teacher at a Southern Baptist Church.

I "renounce" the Southern Baptist Convention but will be sitting in a Baptist Church on Sunday.

I have lived through the fundamentalist takeover of the Convention. I have watched missionaries who stayed true to Baptist tradition be fired. I have also seen Baptists organize the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship that has put some of those same missionaries back in the field.

The Southern Baptist Convention is a complicated organization. It is a large and well financed organization that has little authority other than how money is spent. The Convention cannot dictate theology but it can dictate who it pays. It cannot dictate what Southern Baptists believe - or who we pay.

Remember how this discussion began. All I am asking is that you not assume that all, or even most, Southern Baptists are racist.
