The Southern Baptist Convention’s ominous cracks

Beth Moore has left the Southern Baptist Convention. “I am still a Baptist,” the prolific Bible study author said in an interview with Religion News Service published Tuesday, “but I can no longer identify with Southern Baptists.”

The import of this departure, as many have observed, is difficult to explain if you don’t already know who Moore is. She’s something like the book club leader version of Reese Witherspoon for conservative evangelical Christians, except she also writes the books and teaches classes and draws giant women’s conference crowds, and she’s worked through decades of dismissal and ridicule by male coreligionists.
