Caller Ed from Texas reminds Matt that there are a few “Baptist” churches that are quite aberrant in their beliefs and practices.

Caller Scott from Pennsylvania discusses 1 Corinthians 11:14 and “having long hair” as read in the Greek text of this verse.

Caller William from Chicago has Anglican friends who seem to him to resemble Roman Catholics to a large degree.

On the Baptist question, there are several problems. First, since there are over 25 Baptist denominations in the US alone, you will get a rage of beliefs and practices from Fundamentalist to very liberal. The Southern Baptists tend to be Conservative, but since it's such a big denomination, you will have variations within it. (I taught on Creation Science in a United Methodist Church. Yeah, I was as surprised as you are now!)

In general, I would attend Southern Baptist but not American Baptist, which tends to be much more liberal.
