Georgia Baptist Church Expelled From Southern Baptist Convention Over Racial Discrimination Charges.
Lord have mercy, Southern Baptists continue to make news- a church is now expelled. (I mention this months ago in this space you can read it here). So this is what happened, Raleigh White Baptist scheduled its homecoming event at the church during New Seasons’ worship time, according to the Christian Index. Unaware of the time change, black visitors showed up at New Season’s for worship at the regular time.
They were told to wait in their vehicles and one visitor’s daughter was told to use the convenience store bathroom down the road. “It was because of the color of their skin that they were turned away at the door,” Wunch said. “That was kind of the final straw.”
During an April 3 special meeting, the executive committee of the association voted unanimously to remove the church as a member and return Raleigh White Baptist’s 2018 financial donations to the association. “We kept trying to say, ‘No, this isn’t racism. This is something else,'” Wunch said. “We desperately wanted it to be bad communication, but when all that went down, it’s like, we can’t ignore this.”
