Del~ales al the denomination's annu al convention rejected by 1.071 voles lo 1,005 an amendment that would have askc-d Chnlon's own Southern Baptist congregation to consider disciphning him unless the president resdnds his May 28 ex~·uuve order. Clinton's executive order added homosexuals to the list of groups pro tected from discrimination. "Homosexual politics Is masquerad 1ng today as civil rights, In order lo exploit the moral high ground of the cMI rights movement.· said the reso· lution , which passed overwhelmingly. "Homosexuality Is immoral, con· trary lo lhe Bible and contrary lo lra· dilional Judt·o Christian moral stan· dards, and the open affirmation or homosexuality represents a sign or God's surrendering a society to Its perversion: The resolution said government should not give special legal protee· lion and endorsement to homosexual lty, nor should It Impose legal sane lions against tho~e who beltevr: homo· sexual conduct Immoral. In signing his executive order, Clinton said: "Individuals should not be denied a Job on the basis of some thing that has no relationship to their ability to perform their work." The defeated amendment was pro· posed by the Rev. Wiley Drake of Buena Park, Calif.. who said he was "slrk and tired" of explaining to pros· tltutes and other sinners how Clinton can remain a Southern Baptist. "I think we need to go on record that President Clinton should be dealt with by his church," Drake said. Clinton's home church Is Immanuel Baptist church In Little Rock. Ark. I ftorb Hollinger, vice president in tht• church's executive commttlee, said It would have be<•n t•xtremely unusual for the denomination to suggest that a local church dlsc·lpllnt• a member. ·rve never heard of It. It would be antl·Southern Bapltst," he said. Each local Southern Baptist church Is autonomous. It was Drake who proposed an amendment on Wednesday that would have cited Clinton by name In a reso· lutlon affirming that immoral behavior by public officials should not be excused. The rc·solutlon passed over· whclmlngly: Drake's amendment was defeated. Drake also was behind a resolution last year to boycott Disney for extend Ing health Insurance benefits to homosexual partners or employees and for wekomtng l!,i.ly groups at its amusement parks.
