None of these schools has direct ties to the Southern Baptist Convention as a denomination. They each were started and supported by their respective state Baptist conventions. Each state has a very differing power structure within their state conventions, some are more fundamental than others. In these states is where you see more of a rift.

The SBC as a national denomination only supports the six seminaries.

Lol. Hartsville and Darlington aren't in the best areas though are they? Hartsville is a college town too.

I've never been there. I'm just asking.

What is with that? I am comparing Whites to Whites, I would think other races may also dress differently region from region due to weather?
Yes and there is one thing they have in the South that yer missin' The Well Groomed Mullet! We make Dog the Bounty Hunter look sloppy
Ain't nothin' more excitin' than goin to the WalMart on Saturday to check out the new dew' trend.

I suppose not but I did get a feel for the way people dressed.

I did like it there though, wish I was back in MB.
