Southern Baptists in Houston for annual meeting
HOUSTON -- The Southern Baptist Convention is holding its annual meeting here in Houston. For the next two days, leaders will discuss a hot-button issue.
The church is expected to cuts ties with the Boys Scouts of America, after the organization lifted its ban on gay members. Baptist churches across the country sponsor nearly 4,000 Scout units, representing more than 100,000 children. Other religious groups have also voiced similar concerns.
The convention will take place over the next two days at the George R. Brown Convention Center in downtown Houston.
