Is Speaking in Tongues Gaining Acceptance?

According to this USA Today article, glossolalia is gaining acceptance in many Christian groups, and institutions like Dallas Seminary and Campus Crusade for Christ are leading the way.

Will Hall, spokesman for the SBC, says the denomination has no official policy on speaking in tongues for its churches or individual members. But there are other signs the practice is gaining acceptance. Dallas Theological Seminary and Campus Crusade for Christ, two strongholds of independent Christianity, have done away with restrictions on tongue-speaking for students and staff.
See the DTS official response here. Of course, for those of us who would like to see more openness to non-cessationist theology, the ongoing debate within the Southern Baptist Convention should be a matter of intense prayer.
