    (Phoenix-AP) -- The president of the Southern Baptist
    Convention says members should denounce sinful behavior and
    proclaim Christianity as the true religion, ignoring critics who
    consider their faith bigoted.
    The Reverend Jack Graham told Baptists meeting in Phoenix
    that they should "penetrate the darkness of our culture" with
    Jesus's teachings.
    He said people offended by those teachings make Baptists
    "the national scapegoat" -- but he added, "we will not retreat or
    run from the battle."
    Graham, who pastors the 21-thousand-member Prestonwood
    Baptist Church in suburban Dallas, said these are "deadly times,"
    with terrorism and new technologies like cloning threatening
    Earlier Tuesday, President Bush addressed the Baptists by
    videotape, saying he agrees with them "that marriage and family
    are sacred institutions."
