Actually, he was pretty close except for the black description. They are “progressive” and “moderate” by their own words. See their website.

It seems that the Southern Baptists are the only ones worthy of the heritage attached to that name anymore.

I see they're linked with the "Cooperative Baptist Fellowship," which was (correct me if I'm wrong) the "middle group" when the SBC had a 3-way split about 20 years ago: SBC being most conservative, CBF being middle, and Alliance of Baptists, like the American Baptist Church (ABC) being liberal.
Every one of them, from right to left, believes in that item which made you, monk, say "Yikes": "We teach that every human being has the capacity and the freedom to read and interpret the Bible as she or he sees fit."
That's basic Baptist theology.
Once again, somebody straighten me out if I've got any kinks in this.
