SBC Motion To Oust Churches w/ Female Pastors

The Annual Meeting of the Southern Baptist Convention held in Indianapolis kicked off this morning.

Thus far, two interesting motions have been presented.

On the one hand, a messenger moved to change the SBC Constitution "to state that churches which have female senior pastors are not in friendly cooperation with the convention."

And on the other hand, a messenger moved that the Executive Committee re-evaluate the SBC's relationship with the Baptist World Alliance

More Later.

Definitely interesting.

I have to say that #1 doesn't surprise me too much; I think it's only a matter of time before something like that is implemented.

I'm definitely interested in seeing what happens with the BWA motion.

Did you see the motion about the American flag and the armed services flag/guard?

I also found the motion interesting to change the by-laws to exclude an entity president or the president of the Exec. Comm. from serving as the convention president. Seems like someone is trying to preclude the obvious push for Mohler to serve in that capacity.
