The Wayfarer's Creed

Bigoted Christianity

Posted on: 28 May 2008

So I’m reading Head and Heart by Gary Willis and discovered something I hadn’t know about previously.   Though upon thinking about it, I really shouldn’t be surprised.  So, apparently the Southern Baptist Convention was formed due to Southern Christians insistence that there was nothing wrong with the institution of slavery.  The Southern Baptist Convention at its very roots was a racist organization.  Not so surprising though considering their homophobic and sexist rhetoric.
