    Southern Baptist Family Values - "Women Should Submit Graciously to Husbands"?

    A resolution by the 16-million-member Southern Baptist Convention declares that a wife should "submit herself graciously" to her husband's guidance.
    SBC has removed women from top executive posts in the SBC.

    Man...

    When I read the title of this thread, I didn't know what SBC stood for. I thought that it was probabally the abbreviation for the majority party in Iraq's congress or something...

    I tried to change the title, but only changed it in the OP title, not the main one seen in the forum. Sorry, it is a bit confusing.

    In retrospect, I should have deleted it, but wasteofo2 had already responded.

    Maybe a supermentor can modify the title using their superpowers. :biggrin:

    I googled this and found an AP article regarding this resolution from 1998. It seems like old news, unless there has been a new development.

    Yes, it is old news, but then these are the folks supporting president Bush.

    President Carter and his wife left the SBC because they objected to such policies.

    The SBC went on to remove women from positions of authority in SBC.

    Yes, my experience as a Mormon was interesting in this regard. They have very definite beliefs about a womans' role in life, but men as well, and each is valued in their own right. Still, I found it all rather amazing to say the least.
