Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary Has “LGBT Alumni & Friends” Facebook Page
The Southern Baptist Convention’s most progressive-minded seminary apparently has “LGBT Alumni and Friends” coalescing around a Facebook page for “Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary LGBT Alumni and Friends.” The page is unaffiliated with the seminary itself.
The feed for the page seems sporadic, with posts mostly coming from those associated with the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship and posting from the more liberal Baptist News Global Publication.
In March, they happily posted on the tranny being ordained to the ministry by a founding church of SEBTS.
Currently, 31 people follow the Facebook page, and it does not appear in anyway to be affiliated with SEBTS, which holds to a more traditional view of marriage than the LGBT “community,” even though the seminary has largely shifted its view on the sinfulness of Same-Sex Attraction.
SEBTS President, Danny Akin, did do a video promotional for a pro-gay atheist organization, Openly Secular, which also supported the LGBT It Gets Better Campaign.
It’s likely, however, that Akin’s support for pro-gay organizations like Openly Secular have more to do with him having no earthly idea what he’s doing and less to do with his position on the LGBT movement.
