((/o: Jimmy Carter was the first U.S. President to call himself a born-again Christian...but after 21 years as a member of the Southern Baptist Convention, the former President and his wife have taken the extraordinary step of severing all ties with the nation's largest Protestant denomination.

---sot 130127 The policies of the the Southern Baptist convention have

become more and more exclusionary.

--sot Rosalynn: What the Southern Baptists had to say didn't have any

reflection on how I felt or believe
v/o: The Carters' decision came 4 months after the denomination declared its opposition to women as pastors...and 2 years after it called for wives to be submissive to their husbands. It has also adopted resolutions that oppose homosexuality.

--sot Carter I just didn't want any more to be associated with the

recent policy of the SBC which I considered to be discriminatory against women and other groups.))
