This chapter examines the so-called “deeply conservative” ideology of Southern Baptists. It evaluates this ideology by analyzing 2000 elections in the Southern states in the U.S. from 1945 to 2000. The findings indicate that even during the era of Southern progressivism, the Social Gospel made relatively few inroads among Southern Baptist ministers and while the civil rights movement influenced the Established Church in the South it did not resonate with the bulk of white clergy and laity.

Keywords:   Southern Baptists, conservative ideology, elections, Southern States, U.S., Social Gospel, Established Church, clergy, laity
