James M. Dunn, formerly executive director of the Baptist Joint Committee for Religious Liberty, died July 4, 2015 at the age of 83. Dunn was an uncompromising advocate of religious liberty and church state separation in similar fashion to earlier Baptist leaders and heroes Roger Williams, John Clarke, Isaac Backus, John Leland and George Truett.
