Editor’s note: A few hours ago, The Christian Post received a copy of this resignation letter from Rod D. Martin, a member of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Executive Committee. We felt that amid the continuing controversy in the convention over waving attorney-client privilege, it would be helpful for our readers to have the context and the perspective provided by this letter of resignation.
Dear Dr. Floyd:
It is with enormous frustration and regret that I hereby submit to you my resignation from the Executive Committee of the Southern Baptist Convention. I am one of at least 14 EC members to do so thus far, as well as multiple officers, staff members (including yourself), and our legal counsel of 56 years. There will be more.
