U.S. Southern Baptists Give Up Confederate Flag

Published by : Wochit News
On Tuesday the Southern Baptist Convention adopted a resolution to discontinue the usage of the Confederate battle flag which was used as an emblem of slavery in the antebellum south. The Southern Baptist Convention had previously used the flag as a "sign of solidarity of the whole Body of Christ." This resolution comes four years after the denomination after the election of the first black president of the convention, Pastor and Civic Leader, Fred Luter.
