I see the southern Baptist church much like the Roman Catholic church. They also take a much more conservative view on most things. Much like the Baptist we also do not ordain women as priest. There is a conservative doctrinal taught in the Catholic Church. Each Parrish is atonomus and has its own Paster. May I also say I see the Southern Baptist members as my Brothers and sisters in the Lord Jesus Christ.
