The Convention's leadership has gone so far as to remove from membership every member of a mega-church in Florida who voted against calling a black pastoral candidate. The "leadership" also bullied all members of the church over the age of 80, telling them they were not allowed to vote. Teachers were fired from the Christian school and students expelled. When all of this failed to produce the desired result the members of the church were accused of being "racist" on a national platform.
NONE of the questions asked of the candidate were "racial" in nature. But he did fail to answer several theological questions in any capacity and others that he did attempt to answer he failed to answer to the congregations satisfaction. His deep involvement in Democrat party politics was also of concern to several members.
Will this be the new "norm" now that the SBC is being funded by George Soros?
