SBC presidents send open letter to Obama

WASHINGTON (BP, TAB) — In an open letter, Southern Baptist Convention President Ronnie Floyd, along with the support and signatures of 16 former SBC presidents, called on President Obama to “take the necessary actions now” against ISIS terrorists. The open letter comes in the wake of numerous reports of ISIS killings that include the beheading of 21 Egyptians — reportedly Coptic Christians — the death of an American aid worker, and a Jordanian pilot being burned alive. Other past SBC presidents who signed the letter include Bailey E. Smith, Charles F. Stanley, Jerry Vines, Morris H. Chapman, H. Edwin Young, Sr., James B. Henry, Tom Elliff, Paige Patterson, James Merritt, Jack Graham, Johnny M. Hunt and Fred Luter.

    YES!! It definitely gives me a “warm tummy” feeling to know our Baptist leaders are strong in their convictions and not required to be politically correct! ISIS is wrong, and so is Weatherly Heights Church in Huntsville!! Thank you SBC and TAB!!
