Southern Baptists and social justice

A couple of good pieces on the subject of social justice from Southern Baptist sources. Some of them are getting past the politics and the "buy into everything" mentality when it comes to political issues, and are doing some real thinking for themselves.

Interesting articles. The first article is a tad off stating that Social Justice is a big issue for American Christians. It is mostly an issue for evangelical American Christians. Many denominations have embraced concepts of social justice for generations as part of their faith.
