Seminary President Films Video for Openly Secular Campaign

Following in the footsteps of Rep. Barney Frank, Penn & Teller, Bill Maher, Julia Sweeney, and members of the symphonic metal band Nightwish, President of the Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary Danny Akin has recorded a video explaining why he’s “openly secular”:

It’s not that he’s secular himself, but he support those who want to come out as non-religious:

Though we do disagree on some very important issues, we also agree on some important things as well. For example, we do believe together that no one should be coerced when it comes to their particular religious beliefs, whether they are religious or not religious, they should have the freedom to express what they believe and they should be able to do so without hatred, without discrimination

We also believe that all people are valuable and have dignity and worth. And therefore, all people should be respected and should be allowed to express their beliefs openly according to the dictates of their conscience.

Very cool. And something plenty of Christians could duplicate… if they wanted to.

Akin did the video at the request of Todd Stiefel, who chairs the Openly Secular campaign.
