  1. For those from the Anabaptist tradition, baptism is all about symbol (over substance). So, what about that idea of the doves leaving at the end, as opposed to the Holy Spirit descending like a dove?

  2. As a native Texan, all I can say is….no.

    This does not reflect the majority of Christians in Texas. Perhaps those who treat their church as an adjunct of the country club, but no. Any attempts to insinuate that this is the default there is simply showing ignorant bias.

    Having said that. I will agree with the majority reaction that it borders on the blasphemous (if not gleefully jumping across the line of such) to desire a “stylish” baptism.
