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 Bob Gray, Sr. retired pastor of Longview Baptist Temple, Longview, Texas. Gray had this to say in his sermon:
Gray: I need some help for this illustration.
Black teenager comes up.
Gray: Stand here. Got your Bible?
Gray: Yes sir?
Teen: Yes sir.
Gray: That’s what I thought you said, Obama
