The Alliance of Baptists, a progressive group which grew out of a protest against a fundamentalist resurgence among Southern Baptists, has adopted a statement in favor of same-sex marriage, saying it decries “the politicization of same-sex marriage in the current presidential contest and other races for public office.”
Should moderate Baptists, now fragmented into various groups, consolidate their forces into a full-fledged national denomination and try to provide a compelling alternative to the conservative Southern Baptist Convention?
