The Sounds of Fundamentalism is a series that I would like readers to help me with. If you know of a video clip that shows the crazy, cantankerous, or contradictory side of Evangelical Christianity, please send me an email with the name or link to the video. Please do not leave suggestions in the comment section.  Let’s have some fun!

Today’s Sound of Fundamentalism is a video clip of an Independent Fundamentalist Baptist (IFB) teen quartet singing “I Still Believe Like Grandma,”– complete with a homophobic slur — at Grace Baptist Temple in Chesapeake, Virginia. The church is pastored by Matt Nettesheim.

    baptists spouting the same crap as usual. that stay sweet sign creeps me out. it is probaby directed at women and girls not men. mormon women always said keep sweet which meant smile and take any abuse the males doled out. thanks for bringing this out into the light of day. this will be the only way to kill it out.

    I would have thought that this was satire from “The Onion” except that I knew some people who actually believed this. Yikes. I feel for those poor girls indoctrinated like that.

    Bahahaha! This really hit home with me. When we were kicked out of our Baptist church for loving gay people and refusing to believe they are going to hell, a deacon (a man well into his 70’s) asked my husband, “are you trying to tell me my mama was wrong?!” You just can’t make this shit up!
