The MBC and the SBC can’t tell Weatherford and his group to do, but they can urge the right course of action. And they are (and I’m glad they are).
Southern Baptist groups are calling on a Mississippi church that blocked a black couple from getting married under its roof to reject racism. Leaders of the Mississippi Baptist Convention and the Southern Baptist Convention said Monday that preventing Charles and Te’Andrea Wilson from marrying at First Baptist Church of Crystal Springs was wrong. In keeping with Baptist tradition, they want the congregation to chart its own course.
Indeed, Crystal Springs, repent.
