    (Phoenix-AP) -- The Southern Baptist Convention has
    approved resolutions denouncing same-sex marriage while
    expressing concern for people with AIDS.
    The nation's largest Protestant denomination also asserted
    its members' right to proclaim Christianity as the only path to
    salvation.
    The resolutions, passed on the last day of the Baptists'
    annual meeting, are not binding on local churches but express the
    denomination's opinion.
    One resolution warns judges and public officials that
    legalizing gay marriage "would convey a societal approval of a
    homosexual lifestyle, which the Bible calls sinful and
    dangerous."
    In the resolution on sharing their faith, the Southern
    Baptists said they have been unfairly portrayed as "intolerant
    and even dangerous" because of their "commitment to Christ."
