Article "B.S.U. Adopts Resolution on Racial Issue"

Description

The article in The Collegian called “B.S.U. Adopts Resolution on Racial Issue,” published May 16th, 1958 discusses the Virginia Student Baptist Union (BSU) at their spring retreat held April 18-20, 1958, at which they adopted a resolution on racial discrimination. The students adopted these measures because they felt the racist ideology often harboured in churches is incompatible with the teachings of the Bible. The resolution called for racial inclusivity in the church and on college campuses affiliated with the Southern Baptist church, and it additionally called for protection for church leadership, that they may voice their opinion without fear of economic consequence.
