Southern Baptist Convention President Ronnie Floyd urged members of America’s second-largest faith group behind Roman Catholics to reaffirm their opposition to racism and injustice in a Dec. 15 statement endorsed by ethnic leaders. “Southern Baptists have always been a prophetic voice crying out against matters such as the evil of abortion, the persecution of Christians around the world, the tragedy of human trafficking, or the sexual sins from adultery to homosexuality,” Floyd, senior pastor of Cross Church in Northwest Arkansas, said in a statement signed by 20 other Southern Baptist pastors from white, black, Asian, Native American and Latino communities. “The time is now for us to rise up together and cry out against the racism that still exists in our nation and our churches, and the subsequent injustices.”
