B&H Academic Books, a division of LifeWay, would come under fire for a scholarship that was based in affirmative action. In a tweet that accumulated over 111K views, B&H would turn off replies to avoid ratio.
We are excited to offer an opportunity for two doctoral students to attend ETS in Fall 2023. The application period will be open until August 1. Scholarship winners will be notified on August 15 & featured on our social media in early September.— B&H Academic Books (@BHAcademic) June 26, 2023

This scholarship stands in contrast to the SBC Constitution. As Dusty Deevers points out:
SBC Constitution: Churches only considered in friendly cooperation if they do “not act to affirm, approve, or endorse discriminatory behavior on the basis of ethnicity.”@BHAcademic: “Hold my grape juice.”— Dusty Deevers (@DustyDeevers) June 27, 2023
We’ll see 0️⃣ denunciations from SBC elites.
Check hidden replies. 😂 https://t.co/jiV5fDZssx
Following LifeWay’s abysmal report at SBC23 the struggle sessions will evidently continue.
