A former Southern Baptist Church has decided all are welcomed in their pulpit, going so far as to ordain gay and transgender ministers.
First Baptist of Greenville, South Carolina—the church home of the first Southern Baptist Convention president—has taken a bold move in “embracing the complexities of gender identity.”
“What I heard was, ‘We need to do the right thing, regardless of what anybody thinks or says about us,'” Senior Pastor Jim Dant tells Greenville Online. “There were a few people who said, ‘Are they going to start calling us the gay church in town?'”
