I, too, am someone who has left the Southern Baptist church. I am really grateful for my parents and the loving church environment I was in growing up, but I no longer identify with the SBC's social practices, and I haven't in a long time. Daniel and I have been visiting several churches over the last few months to find one in which we are both comfortable, and we haven't been visiting any Southern Baptist ones. One of the reasons is that I want to belong to a church that permits women, men, and GLBTs to serve in positions of leadership, not just straight men. It sends a message of exclusion with which I don't identify.
