Anyway, here's a nugget buried in Yonat Shimron's article in today's N&O:
Many of the changes happened as the leadership of the [state Southern Baptist] organization became increasingly dominated by biblical literalists. The ideological divisions were exacerbated two years ago when several Baptists were denied positions as trustees at two of the convention's institutions. The nominees were rejected because the churches to which they belonged contributed money to a liberal Baptist group that supports same-sex marriages.
We've seen some of this strong-arming OUT of dissidents in local churches, and of course, we've always felt that 100 percent unanimity of opinion in any public group is always a sign of good emotional and intellectual health.
