I would not have missed being in New Orleans for the election of Fred Luter for anything. One thing that I did miss, however, was the television news coverage of the historic election. The convention meetings kept me busy, and there was very little time to track news reports. I can imagine that many other Southern Baptists at the meeting missed those reports as well. So I’m posting here a round-up of some news coverage that folks may have missed if they were attending the convention. See below.
NBC Nightly News
ABC News – Fred Luter as “Person of the Week”
CNN Starting Point – Post-election Interview with Fred Luter
CNN – Fred Luter answers question about gay marriage
MSNBC – Martin Bashir and Jesse Jackson discuss Luter’s election
CNN Video of the Election
CNN News Room – Interview with Rev. David Crosby
Luter’s post-election press conference
I am heartened by your reflections and gladness about Luter’s presidency. I share your sentiments. I’ve added my reflections for your further reflection.
