By TOM HENSHAW AP Religion Writer The long controversy surround- ing the 100-year-old Southern Bap- tist Theological Seminary in Louis- ville, Ky., flamed anew at the Southern Baptist Convention's an- nual meeting during the past week. The seminary, oldest in the de- nomination, made news last year when 13 of its 44 professors were fired in an apparently insoluble disagreement with its president, the Rev. Dr. Duke K. McCall. As a result, the seminary faces loss of its accreditation by the American Assn. of Theological Schools, and Southern Baptists a IT thinking of withdrawing all six of their seminaries from the association. Last week, at the dcnomina- .ion's Louisville convention, th'e Rev. James S. Bulman of East Spencer, N.C., a frequent critic of Southern Baptist procedures, lev elcd a new charge against the em- battled seminary. He said he has "what I consider clear and conclusive evidence" :hat the seminary is teaching that Christ's virgin birth and resurrec- tion may be looked upon as myths a contradiction of Southern Baptist doctrine. Dr. McCall has denied that the seminary departs from the .ortho- dox theological position.
