the SBC and moral issues

Interesting post (H/t Jesus Politics) from Wade Burleson:
I have said publicly that I would not personally lead my church to hire a female pastor, would not be a member of a church where the senior pastor was female, and I have no problem personally with the BFM 2000* on this issue. However, I am honest enough to say that my discomfort is personal and cultural — and not Biblical.

The post then turns to how people used the Bible to justify slavery. Very interesting.
