The Southern Baptist Convention is expected to withdraw from the Baptist World Alliance after a task force determined that the alliance has become too liberal.

A committee found the Baptist World Alliance is showing an "anti-American tone'', while promoting women as pastors and refusing to talk openly about abortion.

The Southern Baptist Convention has been the largest contributor to the alliance. It gave $300,000 this year.
