There are so many kinds of Baptists... I prefer to single out one Baptist man of faith: Will Campbell, the inspiration for Rev. Will B. Dunn in the Kudzu comic strip. He was white and ministered to black people, for which he was praised... and he ministered to members of the Ku Klux Klan, for which he was not praised. An admiral fellow, I would say.

I am happy for you that you found a supportive place, My experience with fundamental Baptists was not so favorable.
I found them to be extremely judgemental,and gossipy. The Baptist church also does not celebrate the Holy Spirit, I found it to be a dead church. But to each his own Peace.

I realize I have caused confusion by posting in this thread. I am a Lutheran, commenting on the diversity of Baptists in the United States. I am sorry you have encountered judgment, gossip, and spiritual atrophy, and I hope you have found a place where none of that exists. Peace be with you.

I was very confused because Elizabeth and Acolyte are both showing the same avatar... I thought it was the same person talking to themselves. :o  Thought I was losing it.

Does your friend look like this?


Dark Energy. It can be found in the observable Universe. Found in ratios of 75% more than any other substance. Dark Energy. It can be found in religious extremists, in cheerleaders. To come to the conclusion that Dark signifies mean and malevolent would define 75% of the Universe as an evil force. Alternatively, to think that some cheerleaders don't have razors in their snatch is to be foolishly unarmed.
