South Carolina's Southern Baptists have approved a resolution encouraging pastors to preach against homosexuality but also urging Christians to show compassion to gay people.
Another resolution passed by more than 1,000 delegates at a convention in Columbia on Tuesday also urges state lawmakers to vote against any bills that would expand legal gambling activity in South Carolina.
Other resolutions approved Tuesday encourage Baptists to be more involved in prison ministries.
Delegates also approved a $29.5 million budget, a decrease of more than 9 percent from last year's budget.
The two-day convention wraps up Wednesday.
