To Texas Baptists - Don't Beat Up the EEOC Yet

The headline and article in the The Baptist Standard, The Newsmagazine of Texas Baptists, implies a little too much when it says that the EEOC has filed against the Missouri convention. What it is really reporting is that the former controller, Carol Kaylor, has filed a complaint with the EEOC complaining of discrimination. The EEOC is required to accept complaints and investigate them, regardless of their merit. Once it investigates it is empowered to file a lawsuit if it believes there is merit to the charge, but that is not what has happened at this stage.
