McKissic’s racism motion referred to committee

Texas pastor Dwight McKissic’s much-anticipated motion to disfellowship churches which condone racism was referred to the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) Executive Committee.

Such referrals standard process, the Arkansas Baptist news reported:

Committee on Order of Business Chairman Jonathan Whitehead of Missouri, expressed agreement for the intent of the motion, but suggested the need to refer it to the SBC Executive Committee.

“We do not disagree with the spirit behind your motion at all,” Whitehead said. “Whenever we go amending our legal documents we should probably follow the process of letting the proper entities deal with the appropriate legal processes.”

  1. It would seem that the motion should have been voted up or down and if “passed” then it would go before whatever committee for refinement and execution. Was this motion voted on if anybody knows?
