The Sounds of Fundamentalism: IFB Pastor Tyler Baker Attacks Fellow Pastor Donnie Romero

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 Tyler Baker, pastor of Valiant Baptist Church in Jacksonville, Florida, and a disciple of Steven Anderson, engaging in a pissing war with fellow Independent Fundamentalist Baptist (IFB) pastor Donnie Romero. I have written about Romero several times: The Sounds of Fundamentalism: Stephen Hawking Before God by Donnie Romero, IFB Preacher Donnie Romero Caught Cavorting With Prostitutes, Smoking Weed, and Gambling, and Steven Anderson’s “New” IFB Movement Erupts Into a Food Fight Over Donnie Romero.

Get yourself some popcorn, sit down, and enjoy Baker valiantly waging war against Romero.

    I could only listen to a couple of sentences of Pastor Tyler. I’d say he’s got some pent up rage. Awful stuff, but Twitter was quite amusing.

    As soon as I hear this Tyler voice, I feel deep sadness for his family. Does he have a large brood to abuse? That home is surely one house of horrors. Imagine having to have someone like this as your overlord. Wow.
    Thank-you Jeeezus!

    scary how much rage this young man has inside. but the ifb tends to attract this type. seen it over and over again. i also worry for his wife or kids that they are intimidated by his rage. sorry situation all around.

    What is “Northworst”? It sounds like some kind of new link sausage from ancient Germania.

    I know what the subject of the above argument is, but through all of that screaming, it was hard for me to tell what side the young preacher is on in that argument.

    All I can say is that God is the same yesterday, today, and forever—except for the days, months, years, centuries, and millenia when he decides to change himself in some way, which he clearly does or offers to do in various parts of the Bible. How does it benefit the IFB fundie to have a God who is unable to change anything about himself, and why is that a good thing from the fundie perspective? Do fundies take some sort of personal comfort from having God frozen in “thermite” like Harrison Ford was in that second “Star Wars” movie in the very late 1970s. Can anyone explain that?
