I don't know if there are any on here who would consider themselves moderate Baptists. I am one such person. Actually, I think my views range across the spectrum, but I am definitely traditional on ethics and morality. In the past, I have been a supporter of the CBF, but now I have mixed feelings about it. They say they are not a denomination and so don't issue policy statements. Therefore, they have no stated policies on abortion, capital punishment, or homosexuality. They do have a hiring policy in place for the CBF organization which prevents the hiring of a self-avowed practicing homosexual. I am all for autonomy, but I wish they would take an official stand on some of these issues. If they did, this would in no way interfere with local church autonomy. Local churches could still agree or disagree. I do find it troubling that there seems to be a weakening in the CBF for the support of the traditional view of homosexuality. I base that on some recent meetings. Also, there are churches in my state that are CBF members which are affirming of homosexuality. I'm not sure how an organization that will not hire a practicing homosexual can allow churches to be members which affirm it. Can someone explain this thinking to me? If anyone here is a moderate Baptist, do you or could you support CBF?
