(EEW Magazine) The Bible teaches us to turn the other cheek, but if you’re from the Missionary Baptist Church denomination, you’re more likely to punch somebody in the cheek—at least according to BET “Sunday Best” host Kirk Franklin.

The 44-year-old Grammy® winning recording artist told the Yolanda Adams Morning Show, “I done seen a lot of parking lot fights” because “I was raised Missionary Baptist.”

The topic was brought up in the context of discussing the Season 7 drama between contestant Christpher Dennis Brigham and judge Kim Burrell, 41.
