Bravo to North Caroliina Colleges!

Colleges Ditch Baptists



Posted: March 23, 2007 - 8:00 pm ET



(Raleigh, North Carolina) Five colleges and universities affiliated with the Baptist State Convention are preparing to leave, saying the restrictive rules of the denomination are preventing them from attracting the best students and faculty.



The convention voted last year to ban gay-friendly churches and several universities in the South have been dropped over gay inclusion.



Campbell University, Chowan University, Gardner-Webb University, Mars Hill College and Wingate University also say they want the freedom to pick trustees from other denominations and other states.



Under an agreement worked out between the schools and the convention the colleges would begin choosing their own trustees in 2009.



Currently the state convention gives each school about $1.2 million a year. That will be phased out over a period of time ending in 2013.



Part of the money the convention will keep will be used to set up a scholarship fund to help Baptist students defray tuition.



Baptist seminaries at the schools will continue to be affiliated with the denomination.

That's ok. We will assume that you were typing with a Carolina accent.

It's a sign of the times when 'political correctness' flys in the face of good moral common sense. This story is another prime example of this.

Good ole baptists. They all stand together. Don't they all preach out of the same book?

Hi Yagmi. Aren't you glad to see me? Are you trying to say that the baptists don't put the fear of God in you?

That analogy is total bullshit. Southern baptists do not subscribe to that insidious doctrine.



You really need to get your facts straight before posting total shit like that.

Looks like I have hit a raw bone. They are Baptists by belief. They preach from the same book that all Baptists do.



Thank you.
