Spotlight Turns to West Virginia


The WV situation is far more complex than this (they are likely to wait to act until after the next General Board meeting, waiting for the disposition of Indiana/Kentucky amendment's likely defeat). This is an AP report found on a gay-oriented news outlet from Washington, DC.



West Virginia group urges split from American Baptist churches

CLARKSBURG, W.Va. (AP) — A group of 65 West Virginia churches is calling for a split from the American Baptist Churches USA over concerns about its stance on homosexuality. The group called West Virginia Baptists for Biblical Truth plans to call for the withdrawal from the national organization at next month’s annual meeting because, they say, “the ordination of practicing homosexuals and the affirmation of the homosexual lifestyle by some ABC-USA churches is contrary to biblical teaching.” There are 465 Baptist churches in West Virginia, according to the group. “It is time to stand on God’s word and break fellowship with those who condone flagrant sin in the church,” said Jay Wolfe of the West Virginia Baptists for Biblical Truth.
