SOUTHERN BAPTISTS REBUKE CLINTON OVER GAY/LESBIAN PRIDE MONTH

          ATLANTA (CWNews.com) - The Southern Baptist Convention on Monday issued a public rebuke of President Bill Clinton, a Southern Baptist, after he proclaimed June as Gay and Lesbian Pride Month and made other policy decisions.

          "We're not going to allow the president, especially since he is a Southern Baptist, to say that homosexuality is good," said the Rev. Wiley Drake of Buena Park, California. The resolution by the two-day annual convention also condemned Clinton's appointment of the country's first openly gay ambassador, James Hormel.

          The delegates also passed resolutions urging the UN, NATO, and Congress to take steps to halt ethnic cleansing in Kosovo, condemning the American Psychological Association's publication of a study saying adult-child sex may not be harmful to children, and calling on Congress to maintain a ban on the use of federal research that results in the production and destruction of human embryos.
