Southern Baptists voted overwhelmingly to condemn ‘alt-right white supremacy’

"The decision was met with a standing ovation as about 5,000 members of the denomination voted at their annual convention to affirm their opposition to the alt-right movement, which seeks a whites-only state. But it was not a decision easily reached." WaPost

Good move... even better if they'd done it last year though.

It strikes me that while the general definition of "alt-right" does imply racism, maybe it's better simply to state the end point--advocacy for white supremacy and a "whites only" state--than to use the more generic label.  Other than that, good move for the SBC, and frankly I'm impressed that even 6% of congregants are black given history.  That shows you what real repentance will do for reconciliation.
