SBC Va. decries racism in Charlottesville resolution

COLONIAL HEIGHTS, Va. (BP) -- Nearly 1,500 people traveled to the 2017 SBC of Virginia Annual Homecoming with the theme "We Are Not Alone," Nov. 12-14 at The Heights Baptist Church in Colonial Heights. The three-day SBCV event, which drew 701 messengers and 738 guests, took aim at "every form of racism, including and specifically alt-right white supremacy, as antithetical to the Gospel of Jesus Christ" in a resolution that voiced "love and compassion to those in Charlottesville" devastated by the loss of life at a white supremacist rally Aug. 12.
