"...And all the trees of the field will clab their hands."

There are three people in my department who think Baptist is spelled BABTIST.

Look, I don’t have any problem with people pronouncing it that way – different accents have changed a lot of words – but the proper spelling of a word (or name) generally isn’t based on the way it’s spoken..it’s the other way around.

Just check any yellow pages and report to me how many “Babtist” churches are listed. I’m guessing zero.
