Although roughly 50,000 churches are affiliated, and some send delegates to the organization's conventions and help with the selection of its leaders, the Baptist community is fairly diffuse.

I use this site for just about every old/slightly used item I want to sell.Historically, Southern Baptists have been pegged as the prototypical culture warriors, and preachers like Billy Graham, Jerry Falwell, and Pat Robertson were a big part of the rise of the Christian right and the Moral Majority in 1980s American politics.But as mores on sexuality have loosened, and especially as the landscape of same-sex marriage has changed, that "majority" is changing, too.There is not space in Southern Baptist churches for someone who is unrepentantly engaged in homosexual conduct.”Moore isn't saying anything new; evangelical Christians have long used this language to describe their views on marriage and sexuality.It's his job to articulate the public-policy views of the Southern Baptist Convention, and part of that is taking stock of where congregations stand.
