What's in a Name?

The Southern Baptists have defeated a motion to change their name. The Southern Baptist Convention organized under that same name in 1845. They split from the rest of American Baptists over the issue of slavery. Northern Baptists claimed that God condemned such inhumane practices while Southern Baptists staunchly defended the institution of slavery. The Southern Baptists should distance themselves from such an ignominious, un-Christian history.
