Item 156 – Motion Passed

That we, the messengers to the 104th session of the Southern Baptist Convention, express our appreciation and commendation to members of Congress, of both parties, in the Senate and House of Representatives, who are standing fast in support of the cherished principle of separation of church and state in the consideration and passage of legislation, and urge that they continue to do so; especially in the vital matter of refusing to violate the Constitution by appropriating funds for the support of private and parochial schools–and all other agencies operated by religious groups; and we urge members of the churches of this Convention to communicate with their senators and congressmen and let them know of our appreciation and support in this matter.
