Southern Baptists to Consider Name Change

(By Todd Starnes, Fox News Radio) - The president of the Southern Baptist Convention has formed a task force to study the possibility of changing the name of the nation’s largest Protestant denomination.

“The convention’s name is so regional,” SBC President Bryant Wright told Fox News Radio. “We are going to think through potential names that would better describe us without such a regional geographic limitation.”

The Southern Baptist Convention is 166-years old and has churches in all 50 states. However, most of the denomination’s membership is in the South and Southwest.
