Southern Baptist Church condemns Confederate flag, maybe United Methodist Church will get a clue

The Southern Baptist Convention has passed a resolution condemning the Confederate battle flag.

An article announcing the passage of a resolution condemning the Confederate battle flag.

A background article on the Southern Baptists considering it.

This resolution doesn't preclude them hosting neo-Confederate groups and they might use the resolution as a cover to continue hosting neo-Confederate groups.

Hopefully the United Methodist Church will get a clue and stop being clueless. The UMC likes to think they are all the lastest thing on racism and Christianity with fine sounding phrases, but they accommodate neo-Confederates and can't face the issue of the Confederacy.

I do think this is a huge blow against the neo-Confederates in terms of discrediting the Confederate battle flag. Many Southern Baptists will consider not flying it. It will make persons in the South who continue to fly the Confederate battle flag seem aberrant which will result in others not flying the Confederate flag. Now if you want to fly the Confederate flag you will be really fringe.

It will also surface the racial attitudes of some reactionaries who insist on flying the Confederates flag.

It will also challenge persons who are still into the Confederacy but think they are liberal or something or the progressive cutting edge. They will have to realize that they are just full of nonsense and rationalizations.

It will help me get churches to stop hosting.
