Jared Moore has asked us to remove his posts. There are a handful, like this article, which we’ve turned into a summary and left the comments section posted.
At one time there was a prominent argument made by some in the SBC that leadership should be proportional so that theological sub-groups within the SBC were proportionally represented.
One quote from Moore’s article:
Some Southern Baptists argue for a type of proportionality in SBC leadership which goes beyond confessionalism. In their words, “We want SBC leadership to look like the SBC.”… They want SBC leadership to reflect the various nuances of theology possessed by their definition of the “majority beliefs” of Southern Baptists…
Jared Moore went on to argue that wasn’t traditionally how the convention had been arranged and there was no desire among most Southern Baptists to arrange it that way.
