The Southern Political Strategy tried this already by appointing Michael Steele as the Chairman of the Republican National Committee; a honeymoon that lasted as long as a Kardashian reality t.v. episode. Since Black is the new White, consideration should be given to making Allen West the Grand Wizard of the KKK.

Like Dawkin's is the atheist Grand Wizard of the KKK?

@ BilaalUSA...You are so right and remember how Michael Steele was treated. He was used to attack President Obama, and treated rather unfair in my opinion. How will they use a black southern babtist convention president ?

survey Most aetheist prefer a agnostic or aetheist president. weird isn't it?

Look how good it worked in Russia! With 3% atheist maybe it would more realistic to makeup your own mythical president for the atheist myth.

Southern Baptists have become so extremely irrelevant that I wonder why anyone cares who they elect as their "leaders."

As the Southern Baptist convention grew out of their distaste for abolitionists and, you know, racial justice, in general, it's hard for me to understand why any self-respecting Black person (Men only? Do Southern Baptists find female pastors distasteful too?) would want a role in this organization.

There is no scripture support to be a pastor. In I Timothy 3 it gives all the qualifications of a pastor and in each one notice it says "He or Husband" no where does it say she or her or wife.

If you need scriptural support from Paul to do anything, no Baptists would marry. Unless they're "burning" so much with desire, they can't control themselves. And if Baptists followed Paul's advice that women be quiet in church,  there'd be no choirs and not many Sunday School classes. (Some churches only had male choirs for just that reason.)

I have read this conversation through and am a bit flabbergasted that people in the twentieth century would engage in it. Using one bronze/iron age passage to prove the validity of another is as about as circular, silly, laughable, and without sense as thinking can be. I hesitate to even call it thinking. It is more in the nature of trying to straighten out a messy room by throwing more garbage in it. To those of us who are not encumbered by the fear that this death cult mythology of the middle eastern desert teaches, the odor of this offal is particularly foul.

Religion at its very core is nothing else but a form of bigotry. When you start from a place of thinking that your form of bigotry is not only Ok but also pre-approved by some celestial sugar daddy, the step to outright racism is not a very long step at all.

If you look up the word bigot and learn what it means you would see that you just made a bigot statement and became a bigot as well.

Perhaps but I feel no need for shame because I am a bigot when it comes to the stupidity of either religion or racism.

This is all too funny. "The survey comes as Southern Baptists await the outcome of an investigation into racially charged comments about the Trayvon Martin case by Richard Land, the president of the SBC's Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission." They're running scared, they could lose the tax exempt status, and we all know what that would mean for the organization of Tea-Baggers and right wing nuts. To think they still call themselves Christians? Not at my Fathers table, this is generational racism and bigotry. I don't believe they believe in God or His Son Jesus, if they did their history would be different.

Southern Bptist are a significant part of Tea Party elements which have low racial tolerance. Southern baptist are the backbone of many elected officials who write and sign legislation that still has a disparate impact on blacks. Almost all of those same Southern Baptist backed politicians were involved in groups like ALEC. So has political correctness gotten a grip on the Southern Baptist? And what does the selection of a black president have to do with promoting scriptural doctrine? It has been widely known for a long time that the most segregated time in America is 10 am on Sunday mornings. Ths Southern Baptist has always had sordid racist past. By their structire and organization, baptist churches are basically indepents. And if the denimination is still 70% white and but 6 of 10 people polled think that it would be good to have a black president, what's the point if attitudes still haven't changed? Why any black pastor and congregation would desire to be affiliated with a group that says one thing but their actions point in a different direction is a mystery. But it all just looks strangely like politics.

! Most likely because they both have grown and learned to worship the same God! The Baptist church where I go is multi culture as well.

Well Obama's not qualified to get this job after this election (he will need another job) because he is not african american.

What ever happened the dream of Dr. Martin Luther King? I thought the idea was that a man be judged by the content of his character instead of the color of his skin.

Call me funny if you want - I think it is just as wrong to be prejudiced in favor of a person due to the color of his skin as it is to be prejudiced against a person.

Hello wisstein2; "What ever happened the dream of Dr Martin Luther King?" We're still waiting on it to come to fruition. The "prevailing" power structure likes things just as they are. To surrender their power is not their intentions. Power? Some folk love it. Corrupting though it may be. But man is nothing if not corrupt. In my opinion. Life.

"He thinks the almost 30 percent who did not state an opinion -- and some of those in disagreement -- may reflect pastors who think race should not play a role in SBC leadership selection."

Of course that's it: unless ----- those are just the 30% who agree with the 10% but will not lie about like the other 60%.

Hello Bones Rhodes; "may reflect pastors who think race should not play a role in SBC leadership selection?" Really. Then how come they haven't had a man of color as president? Probably just coincidence. "Decades" of coincidence. Life.
