Source: AJC

Calling on people to stop displaying the Confederate battle flag, the Southern Baptist Convention today offered some of the strongest criticism yet of the banner by a major conservative religious group.

The group overwhelmingly approved a resolution at its annual conference saying that the flag is perceived by many as a symbol of “hatred, bigotry and racism” and asking people to take it down.

“We call on our brothers and sisters in Christ to discontinue the display of the Confederate battle flag as a sign of solidarity of the whole body of Christ, including our African American brothers and sisters,” the resolution said.

4. Not all Southern Baptists abide by the dictated strictures.

My maternal grandparents were ultra-ultra-conservative, but they both enjoyed dancing and having a beer now and then.

And my grandmother, get this: was pro-choice. Really. Her belief was that if a Christian woman got an abortion, she must have had a good reason.

5. Know why Baptists never have sex standing up?

They don't want anyone to think they're dancing!
