I'm not familiar with the tune, so I don't know what would fit, but since it was "darkies" to begin with, and "Baptist" now, surely there's a generic, non-offensive substitute word out there....[mission, maybe]

I remember how the song "Methodist Pie" went over like a ton of bricks at a Sunday night/camp meeting-style service at a Methodist Church in my recent past...

And besides, the Baptists could probably use a break.

You realize, of course, that it was originally "...the Darkies' Sunday School...?" (IIRC, I still have those lyrics in my 1959 Song Fest...). Maybe it's better to offend the Baptists than be accused of racism.

Damn political correctness anyway!

Ask the Baptists. By this I mean, if you do not know any Baptists well enough TO ask them about this-- you may not (yet) be an accurate judge of what would be offensive in your neck of the woods.

Oh, and can I get a copy of the songbook??? We do a lot of stuff in our Saturday Night Service that would not usually be done in church.

I am putting together a booklet of songs sung at a summer camp over the years. When I included the song "The Baptist Sunday School" The cho. as follows 'Old folks young folks everybody come join the Baptist Sunday School and have a lot if fun Park your razors and chewing gum at the door And you'll hear stories that you never heard before There is nothing offensive in the verses, However someone claimed that the title and cho. COULD be offensive to anyone who is Baptist. I would appreciate some feedback on this. We all sang it at a Congregational church camp years ago. THank you in advance Allan
