FK – I was raised in a rural Southern Baptist Church. The big Baptist church in town put their Sunday Services on the local TV station as did a Baptist Church in Louisville, this state’s largest city. You can bet there are differences.
I’ll never forget when our preacher proclaimed “If this church ever has a dance I’m leaving!” This was because the church in town was having one.
The Louisville preacher’s sermons usually bordered on the blatantly un-biblical in an effort to please his ‘educated’ flock.
Funny stuff, or it would be if so many morons didn’t take the crap seriously and use it as an excuse to sit on their asses and wait for the world to end while passing their slavery on to their children. It’s the most pathetic/horrifying thing I know of.
Back in the 90s I attended a ‘watermelon bust’ to hand out fliers for a ‘Democrat'(loosely defined) candidate at what was called a democrat event. The crowd was listening to a gospel music band and likely preparing to go vote for Clinton/Gore. I was a registered Republican or maybe Libertarian at the time.
The sheeple don’t think. Politicians and modern priests know this and take advantage of it.
The Southern Baptists have recently proven once again that they have been infiltrated by their vote earlier this year to condemn the ‘alt-right,’ probably without really understanding what it even is.
It’s probably impossible at this time to understand all the minute details of all the current versions, sub-versions or subversions. Several lifetimes could be wasted on such.
