Vision America Board Member on Slavery

Rev. Rick Scarborough of Lufkin, Texas based Vision America chose Southern Baptist Convention leader Rev. Adrian Rogers to sit on his Board. Here are a few of Adrian Rogers quotes. He is not on the board anymore because he is deceased...dead. Rogers didn't appear to like LGBT people either!

You are judged Rev. Rick by the [neato] friends you keep.

Adrian Rogers, a key leader in the 1980s of the fundamentalist movement in the Southern Baptist Convention, when asked by a non-fundamentalist pastor how he interpreted a particular biblical passage that condoned slavery, responded, "I feel slavery is a much maligned institution. If we had slavery today we would not have such a welfare problem."
