WHAT DOES GOD SAY ABOUT RACE? There is a long-standing liberal stereotype about Southern Baptist preachers that became stale quite a while ago. So this Maryland pastor’s recent two-part sermon on God and race may shock some folks, but at least they’ll gain a more accurate understanding. I suspect that most Americans, regardless of their faith or lack thereof, hold similar views, that skin color is irrelevant. Just ignore the lame jokes.
