Francis Beckwith, writing on the Right Reason blog, posts the following:
Yesterday, June 29, the Baptist Joint Committee hosted a Baptist Unity Rally in Washington, D.C., in which "religious, political and educational leaders...celebrate[d] our Baptist heritage by reading excerpts of [George W.] Truett’s  speech. Rep. Chet Edwards of Texas, Rep. Bobby Scott of Virginia, William Underwood, Pam Durso, Jeff Haggray, Stan Hastey, Daniel Vestal, Amy Butler, Julie Pennington-Russell, Curt Lucas and Rob Marus are among those...[who] participate[d]." (from BJC website)
Because I am familiar with the speech, I was curious as to whether the BJC would have the courage to ask its assigned readers--including two U. S. Congressmen and a Baptist university president--to recite the portions of the speech that are condescendingly and embarrasingly anti-Catholic (which, by the way, can still be found in its entirety on the BJC's website).
Just as I had predicted to a friend in private conservation, the BJC provided to the public a highly-edited, antiseptic, version of the speech.
Read the entire post and see what parts of Truett's speech were left out. A reader left the following comment on the Right Reason blog:
This is incredible! A US congressman celebrating the legacy of Truett, a segregationist. Bear in mind that this is all part of an effort by Bill Underwood, Daniel Vestal, Jimmy Carter, and several other Baptist leftists to gather support for Hillary Clinton. Remember, these are the same people organizing the "Baptist Covenant" next year in Atlanta, which will feature Senator Clinton as one of the main speakers.
Sure enough, the Baptist Joint Committee is part of the "New Baptist Covenant." Visit the "New Baptist Covenant" website and learn more about how the self-described "authentic and genuine Baptist voice in North America" is working to "promote religious liberty and respect for religious diversity."
