Southern Baptists? We’ll keep praying fer ye.

25944-middle-east-refugees-facebook.800w.tnThe Southern Baptist Convention just approved a resolution that encourages members to be more welcoming to refugees.

This after #OrangeHitler has doubled down on his illegal and immoral suggestion to ban Muslims from the U.S. And here are just a few things that could spring from that.

The Baptists also came out against the Confederate battle flag. Good on ye, Baptists. And thanks, Jac, for the link.

  1. I imagine it must feel a bit strange praying for Christian leaders to act like Christians.

    • Ouch! (But yeah.)

      • I read this morning about the SBC’s June 14th resolution on LGBT issues…which includes…

        •The Supreme Court’s Obergefell decision in 2015 purporting to redefine marriage does violence to the Constitution and is contrary to the Bible and natural order.
        •The Obama Administration’s recent “guidance” requiring transgender access in public school bathrooms and locker rooms based on its unauthorized redefinition of “sex” in federal law rejects God’s design of male and female.
        •Business owners and employees of various faiths are increasingly faced with decisions to submit to unjust laws about marriage and sexuality or violate their consciences.
        •Experience and recent history have shown that when the government redefines marriage as anything other than between a man and a woman, the police power of the state is brought to bear to enforce that redefinition, resulting in an inevitable collision with religious freedom and conscience rights.
        •That we reiterate our love for our neighbors who identify as transgender, seek their good always, welcome them to our churches, and, as they repent and believe in Christ, receive them into our church membership.

        So…yeah…keep praying.
