ALBANY, Ga. – Leaders of the Southern Baptist Convention are expelling a Georgia church that was accused of racial discrimination. The denomination’s media office tweeted Monday that members of the executive committee had voted to withdraw fellowship from Raleigh White Baptist Church in Albany, Georgia. The tweet says the church is being disassociated over “clear evidence” of racism. The church’s local association severed ties earlier this year. News reports say the majority white Raleigh White Baptist agreed in 2015 to share its building with the majority black New Seasons Church, which outgrew it in size. Reports say Raleigh White members blocked members of the black church from entering one Sunday in March, prompting action.
Also, a series of sexual misconduct cases has prompted the Southern Baptist Convention’s socially conservative, all-male leadership to seek forgiveness for the ill treatment of women and vow to combat it. Hoping for more than rhetoric, women and some male allies plan a protest rally in Dallas when the two-day meeting opens on Tuesday.
They had to tangle over racism before and everyone knows how God feels about women. Nothing really shocking from cult followers of a western God who advocated a superior tribe over all others and stopped at nothing to smite and steal. And Hitler is the bad guy? All the while, idiots are still waiting for a sign.
