    Do any of you have experience with this website? Does the intent align with solid theology? Do you see it as ethical to act in the interest of an exclusive group?

    There are definite associations with the "alternative right" crowd, most closely the publication American Renaissance. www.amren.com

    I can't say I am in line with the extrapolation of a sovereign God meaning deliberate, specific borders and ethnic boundaries. I also don't like the phrasing in the concept of the "multi-national multi-racial makeup of Christ's Church", encouraging a universal church doctrine, rather than to say "makeup of Christ's people" or "nation".

    How should the baptist see this site?
    What is the truth about miscegenation?

    Miscegenation? Why bring that racist concept into the discussion? Where does the article in question mention miscegenation?

    Simply looking at the big picture being presented in the article and reading between the lines a little would bring me to ask, why you would so quickly jump on asking such a question? Although, I decided to look at the Neebie's (hello Jeremy) intro and saw where that was heading...which might explain a few things. ;)

    Does miscegenation, or "anything" for matter, need to be directly stated to get to the truth of where the conclusions logically lead? ...Never mind...

    Personally, after reading the article and the comments I highly suspected a quick look at the site would reveal more of the focus ("the intent") the OP was addressing ...and it did.

    The author of the article seems to have a strong, perhaps passive aggressive type, focus on racial separation. Is it ethical to be so interested in promoting his ideas on this subject? Well,...where the heart is...I suspect he could find better interests to fill his time...

    I suppose I didn't connect my thoughts very well, but miscegenation is a common topic in the articles published.

    Good grief, I think I'm going to end up on some sort of government "list" after visiting that site.

    And where does the site leave our Asian, African, and Eastern European brethren? I work with Evangelical Christian-Baptists who have their roots in Russia and Ukraine. They are not part of the Anglo-American Baptist tradition.

    I noticed the emphasis on race more than I did the one on Christianity.

    I may be missing some sarcasm, but here's a link if you are unfamiliar with Christian Identity:
