Decent Essays
International Mission Board (IMB) president David Platt has issued an apology to Southern Baptists for the division which stemmed from the board’s support of a New Jersey Islamic society’s right to build a mosque. On Feb. 15, Platt took the opportunity during a meeting with Baptist state editors in California to apologize over the divisive amicus brief that IMB joined. The issue was prompted by the IMB’s support for the Islamic Society of Basking Ridge, N.J. (ISBR) in a discrimination lawsuit filed against a local planning board. Both the IMB and the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission joined the brief, the Baptist Press notes. “I apologize to Southern Baptists for how distracting and divisive this has been,” said Platt during the meeting.
