The Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) of the Southern Baptist Convention said it regretted the implication of its amicus brief filed before the US Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. The admission was published by the Baptist and Reflector.

According to the Executive Director of the Tennessee Baptist Mission Board, “I have spoken with ERLC leaders and they genuinely regret the implication of the amicus brief they filed at the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Their explanation is that there was a very small window of opportunity to submit the brief. In other words, it was rushed. A legal brief representing Southern Baptists via the ERLC, using language in violation of our own governing documents and historic understanding of the autonomy of the local church, was filed before the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals without careful vetting or consideration of the legal precedent it might establish.”
