(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."
