You keep coming back, so here are a few questions. No, nothing to do with SBC policy or treatment of moderates.
Why do Southern Baptists seem so happy with Bush's presidency? Why do they seem to applaud an ill-advised war even when so many Republicans are unhappy with the management of this war? Why do conservative evangelicals still refuse to hold the President accountable for torture policies, horrible response to Katrina, and tax policies seemingly aimed at helping the already rich? Why does it seem that the only accountability calls come when Bush vacillates on gays or stem cells? And to reiterate, the Bush administration has worked exceptionally hard to be able to torture people. That seems like a fundamental moral question and I am unclear as to why conservative evangelicals seem to be sitting on their hands on this one. They can raise hell over Harriet Miers, but not over torture?
