Southern Baptist Theological Seminary Rejects Request to Pay Reparations for School’s Ties to Slavery

@ Relevant

In a change.org petition, EmpowerWest wrote, “We call for Southern Baptist Theological Seminary to make an act of repentance and repair to descendants of American slavery for its leading role in crafting a moral and biblical defense of slavery; for its support of the Confederacy; for perpetuating the Lost Cause mentality; and for defending Jim Crow policies. We call the Seminary to transfer a meaningful portion of its financial wealth to a black-led educational institution which is outside the Seminary’s sphere of influence.”
