Moral Contradictions

Is it enough, and is it too late?

I commend the Younger Leaders of the Southern Baptist Convention and their Memphis Declaration. Six months ago I would not have expected to see anything like this come from within the SBC - even still, I'm pleasantly surprised at its tone and purpose.

However, the waiting game commences - will these folks be pushed out of power, or will the hardliners prevail?

Even further, is it even worth it? Had the fundamentalists adopted this tone 20 years ago, perhaps some of the mess the SBC went through would have been avoided.

I sincerely wish these folks good luck in their quest, as the actions of the SBC affect us all, even if we don't appreciate that fact.
