The Associated Press reports:
The Southern Baptist Convention is electing a new president Tuesday amid a push to wrest control of the denomination by ultraconservatives who say some current leaders are too liberal on issues that include race and the role of women in ministry.
Mike Stone, a Georgia pastor, is the preferred candidate of a new group within the nation’s largest Protestant denomination that calls itself the Conservative Baptist Network. Some network members have adopted a pirate motif on Twitter while declaring their intention to #taketheship.
Also vying for the presidency is Albert Mohler [photo], who leads the denomination’s flagship Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He’s not part of the new conservative network but has angered some Southern Baptists for endorsing Donald Trump last year and for signing a statement denouncing critical race theory.
Read the full article. Mohler and a clown car of fellow haters have signed the so-called Nashville Statement, which condemns “LGBT sexuality,” same-sex marriage, adultery, and shacking up. That did not save Mohler from an attack by Porno Pete, who condemned him for acknowledging that homosexuality is an actual thing.
