So it seems that members of Alec Baldwin’s East Hampton Catholic parish, Most Holy Trinity, stood up and turned their back on the Emmy-winning 30 Rock star when he got up . . . to read the Bible.
A source told us of the protesting parishioners on July 29: “Alec loves to be the center of attention and often reads from the pulpit, which really annoys some in the congregation. It is so bad that, one recent Sunday, he went up to read, and part of the congregation stood and rudely turned their backs on him.”
Really? I don’t know. Something about this story smells fishy. But if true — what the frak? The fact that Alec Baldwin goes to church and occasionally delivers the readings is cool. It’s the most likable thing about him! He’s got a great voice. In fact, he’s got a whole other career narrating NatGeo and Discovery Channel programs. I’d think the congregation would be delighted to hear scripture read by him.
Man, I’ve been in churches where the people who gave the readings left out whole sentences, mispronounced those tricky Hebrew names, like Jesus, and took so long to finish, congregants began to cry.
Buncha East Hampton snobs…
Here’s the Alec Baldwin they deserve:
