Two Local Chuches Leave Baptist State Convention

Members at St. John's Baptist and Park Road Baptist voted to leave over the state convention's decision to investigate and expel churches that welcome gays and lesbians. To get some perspective on what this means, WFAE's Craig Fahle spoke with Bill Leonard, a Baptist historian and Dean of Wake Forest University's Divintiy School. Dean Leonard says homosexuality is only the latest issue to create what he calls a fissure between the state convention and its member congregations.
