The church that’s often depicted in media is a place I don’t recognize. It’s flawed, surely, with jackleg preachers and numbskulls who use religion as a kind of baseball bat, but it’s also full of fun-loving people who know how to laugh, who do good work for no pay, and who try to live by real principles in a world where villains succeed and heroes die. I wouldn’t be where I am without the old-time Baptist church. It’s given me everything.”
