Southern Baptists condemn alt-right
« on: June 14, 2017, 10:11:46 PM »
Southern Baptists voted overwhelmingly to condemn alt-right white supremacy.

Per Washington Post:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/acts-of-faith/wp/2017/06/14/southern-baptists-are-about-to-vote-on-a-proposal-to-condemn-white-supremacy 

Members of the Southern Baptist Convention voted Wednesday to condemn a white nationalist movement, but only after fierce backlash following their decision a day earlier not to move forward with a similar resolution.

The decision was met with a standing ovation as about 5,000 members of the denomination voted at their annual convention to affirm their opposition to the alt-right movement, which seeks a whites-only state. But it was not a decision easily reached.

Church denomination resolutions are just publicity stunts. They really have zero effect, but are just a feel good exercise.

If you are going to condemn, the Alt Left should be equally condemned with the Alt Right.

There is no such thing as an "alt left".

The fact that churches and Christians are the base for Roy Moore says a lot.

But "TheEvenDumberThugsOfTheLeft"  isn't very catchy.

Nah, me being a former member of both the SPUSA and CPUSA means I know what I'm talking about.
