First We Count the Tithe and Then We Do the Purge

As expected, the N.C. Baptist State Convention voted this a.m. to excommunicate congregations "that affirm or approve of homosexuality," thus enacting "one of the most rigid anti-gay policies among the nation's Christian churches."

Seventeen churches in North Carolina affiliated with the Alliance of Baptists will come "under immediate scrutiny."

"Those churches contribute just $185,000 to the Convention's $36 million budget," convention spokesman Norman Jameson said. So good riddance, you poor little tolerant Baptists, you!
