NORTH CAROLINA: 4300 Baptist Churches Endorse Anti-Gay Marriage Amendment

Raise your hand if you’re shocked. Via Charlotte Observer:

N.C. Baptists meeting today in Greensboro elected Charlotte pastor Mark Harris to be their new president and endorsed a proposed state constitutional amendment that would reinforce North Carolina’s ban on same-sex marriage. Most of the 4,300 churches associated with the state convention are Southern Baptist – the largest Protestant denomination in North Carolina, with about 1.3 million members.

Harris has pledged to campaign for the amendment.
