Check out one of the most influential blogs in the recent Southern Baptist Convention by one Wade Burleson. Theologically, I don't expect any changes with the new president. But there may well be a difference in tone and greater lee-way for some dissent. Of course, dissent against the kind of extremism that has taken over the SBC means only a tiny move to the center. But any pull-back from full-throated fundamentalist Christianist certainty is encouraging. Check out this posting on whether it's permissible for Baptists to drink any alcohol at all. Burleson is the "liberal" on this. His view of the Bible is that all of it is inerrant. But you can still have an occasional beer.
