Crescent Hill Baptist Church — Looks pretty solid to me
Kentucky Baptists have voted to sever ties with a Louisville church that is open to performing same-sex marriages.
Baptist leaders from around the state gathered Tuesday in Bowling Green for the Kentucky Baptist Convention’s annual meeting. They voted overwhelmingly to end their longstanding relationship with Crescent Hill Baptist Church.
The church’s pastor, the Rev. Jason Crosby, has said the church is open to performing same-sex marriages and ordaining gay, lesbian, transgender and bisexual members. Crosby made a plea Tuesday to allow the church to remain a part of the convention. He said the decision came after much discussion and a process that lasted two months.
“We looked at what is sexual orientation and gender identity,” Crosby said. “We took a vote in which we decided that we would fully welcome and affirm gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender individuals in the life of this church.”
Kentucky Baptist Convention Executive Director Paul Chitwood said same old blah, blah, blah!
Crosby said his congregation supports the new stance and believes that in years to come, the church will be on the right side of history…
Bigots will continue to build themselves a tightly-fenced world on a piece of ideology steadily shrinking, diminishing as ignorance is diminishing. The process is often slow; but, it is inexorable.

Bullitt County, Kentucky (11/19/14): “Newly obtained video of Southeast Bullitt Fire Department chief raises questions of racism” http://www.wdrb.com/story/27419237/newly-obtained-video-of-southeast-bullitt-fire-department-chief-raises-questions-of-racism
“When WDRB raised questions about mismanagement within a local fire department, it brought new information that raises questions of racism. Now, Valerie Chinn has uncovered shocking new video of Southeast Bullitt Fire Chief Julius Hatfield.
Video from a Bullitt County Sheriff’s deputy’s body camera shows Hatfield’s department responding to a car accident on I-65, south of the Clermont exit in September.
“Well, I’ve got a family of four from Cincinnati, I got to do something with,” the Bullitt County deputy said in the video.
Hatfield replied, “We ain’t taking no n—— here.” Then he laughs.
The partially censored expletive was a derogatory racial term.”
