Baptists Excluding Baptists

Interesting stuff going on between North Carolina and Missouri Baptists.

North Carolina Baptists have trumped Missourians over who can exclude whom. A few weeks ago, the Missouri Baptist Convention dismissed 19 churches from its ranks for not being exclusively (singly) aligned with the Southern Baptist Convention.

Meanwhile, the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina, meeting under the convention theme of “Cast a Wider Net,” ironically decided to expel from its ranks any churches that harbor homosexual members.  So after a year’s study they amended their governing documents to give them the most punitive powers of any Baptist group on this issue.
