The Southern Baptist Church is the 2nd largest denomination in the US, with over 15 million members. Southern Baptist believe that homosexual orientation is a sickness that needs to be healed and a sin that needs to be forgiven. This will be the 5th year in a row that Soulforce will be at the Southern Baptist Convention, spreading the truth about GLBT people, and offering hope to those still trapped by misinformation and untruth.
