“Not Reaching the Pagan Pool”?


Terry Mattingly’s got the skinny on the Southern Baptists’ new Holy Ghost baptism bus tour. As the SBC’s new president, Rev. Bobby Welch, explains, “We’re not reaching the pagan pool. … We’re just rearranging the furniture inside the church” (!?). So the SBC goal is to baptize 1 million people by June 2006. Get your white robe on! They may be a’comin’ to your town …

I just have one question: Are the baptisms taking place in the pagan pool? Or can I get baptized in the Christian pool instead? Which reminds me of a quote from Jessica Simpson, something about “dropping the kids off at the pool” … ?
