Stephen Baldwin Tried to Convert My Friend

StephenBaldwinpicforic.jpgWhat would you do if a celebrity tried to convert you? Well, I suppose with all the pop culture/spirituality overlap in my life and work, it was bound to happen: Stephen Baldwin tried to convert my friend over the weekend.
Benyamin Cohen, author of My Jesus Year: A Rabbi’s Son Wanders the Bible Belt in Search of His Own Faith, was in the green room at FOX preparing for a segment, and began schmoozing with famously outspoken evangelical Christian actor Stephen Baldwin, the “self-proclaimed Jesus Freak of Hollywood.”

As we were chatting about faith, the fact came up that I had visited 52 different Bible Belt churches and not once had someone tried to convert me. Stephen’s pupils went from their default half-mast glazed-over look to the wide-eyed look of a Baldwin on the prowl. Apparently, I had woken the beast.
“How much time do I have before my segment?” he asked his publicist.
“About an hour,” she called back from across the room.


“An hour,” Baldwin said, “should be enough time to convert you, Ben.”

For the rest of this funny anecdote, check out Benyamin’s post on The Daily Beast.
