Harry Smith, Religious Scholar
Smith asked a female parishioner:
When I stood here a week ago Tuesday, I said, think of all the weddings that happened here, all the babies that were baptized, so much of the life of this community is inside that building. What are your feelings as you stand here in front of the building now?
The church she attends, however, is the First Baptist Church of Gulfport, Mississippi, a member church in the Southern Baptist Convention, a Christian denomination which doesn't practice infant baptism.
