Resolution On Lynching

The Southern Baptist Convention hereby reaffirms its unalterable and unsparing condemnation of lynching. We urge our pastors and churches to take a firm stand against this evil; to give every possible support to public officials in the performance of their duty, urging them to exercise every power at their command for the protection of all persons in their charge; that we urge our people to stand stedfast and true for prompt and impartial justice to all offenders against law and for the protection of the rights of all human beings to a fair and impartial hearing before the law under the guaranties of our Constitution, both State and Federal, with whatever crime they may be charged.
