Frank S. Page, top Southern Baptist leader, resigns due to ‘morally inappropriate’ relationship

This guy served as president of the Southern Baptist Convention from 2006-08. As of Tuesday, he stepped down from as president and CEO of the Southern Baptist Convention’s executive committee and retired from active ministry.

I used to be such a proud Southern Baptist, and I understand all churches have their shortcomings and faults, but with leaders like him, Jack Graham, Franklin Graham, Mike Huckabee, and Robert Jeffress, as well as initially declining to consider a statement of its opposition to the alt-right last year until public pressure, I’m convinced one of the best decisions of my life was walking away from the SBC.

NASHVILLE — Frank S. Page, a prominent Southern Baptist leader, has resigned from his top role in the largest Protestant denomination in America because of a “morally inappropriate” relationship.

Page, the president and CEO of the Southern Baptist Convention’s executive committee, stepped down Tuesday from the leadership role and retired from active ministry, according to the Baptist Press, an official publication of the Nashville-based denomination.

Earlier in the day, Page, 65, had announced he was retiring, but acknowledged later that he needed to be more forthright on why he was leaving the post.

“As a result of a personal failing, I have embarrassed my family, my Lord, myself, and the Kingdom,” Page said in a statement released through the Baptist Press.

    Keith, I sadly agree with you. Was a long time member of SBC. Finally decided the Convention had left the true tenets of what it meant to be a Baptist. Am still a proud Baptist to this day, just not a member of the SBC. They have lost their way because of money, power, politics, hubris, fame, etc (you pick the failing – they all apply). We all fall short, but SBC has become an organization that consciously chooses to preach one thing, but act another. I hold no respect for any group that is that dishonest. Just my opinion.
