Baptists threaten to expel churches if they knowingly hire LGBTQ people

There is a feud brewing over LGBTQ rights among Baptists, and it threatens to drive an even greater wedge between the two opposing factions.

The Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, an affiliated group of churches formed in response to the conservative Southern Baptist Convention, has organized a committee, the Illumination Project, to discuss dropping the ban on hiring LGBTQ people.

The Kentucky Baptist Convention, of which some of the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship churches are also a member, has said it is watching the situation closely and has threatened to kick out any churches that say it is okay to hire LGBTQ people.
