Southern Baptists

The annual meeting of the Southern Baptists today voted on a revision on their statement of faith. The new language reiterates the Southern Baptist Convention's opposition to homosexuality, abortion, racism and pornography and says that the office of pastor is reserved for men. NPR's Lynn Neary reports from the convention.
