Alec Baldwin's Church Congregation Turns Their Backs On Him

| Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueAlec Baldwin

Apparently, some folks at Alec Baldwin's church never asked themselves, "What would Jesus do?"

Or they did and he said, "Turn your back to the guy from 30 Rock when he speaks at the pulpit!"

Well, that's exactly what people did during a Sunday service at the Most Holy Trinity Parish in East Hampton two weeks ago.

We're not exactly sure why anyone would ever pull that kind of a shenanigan in church, but here's what one source said:

"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. Even though he has generously given a lot of money to the town, there are people who just don’t like him. He has a need for attention and shows up at every event. When people go to the church, they don’t want to see the movie star up there."

Another opinion is that those backs belonged to Republicans who simply disagreed with the actor's liberal views.

Maybe Rev. Donald Hanson can get to the bottom of this. When asked about the incident, he said:

"Alec Baldwin reads from time to time at the church, and read again on Sunday two weeks ago. I was told that happened, but I did not personally witness it, as another priest was saying the Mass."

Nope! Pass the mic to Baldwin's rep:

"Alec was focused on the prayers, so he has no way of knowing if this happened. But does someone violating the sanctity of a church even deserve a response?"

True that! It sounds like whoever turned their backs during the prayer has a lot of growing up to do.

    Alec Baldwin is an enemy of Jesus Christ. By supporting the Democratic party, he wages war on God every day. It's 100% completely Christian to have someone that is out of line with God removed from the congregation. They shouldn't have turned their backs, they should have called for him to be banned from church.

    Gay Republican…. I'm sure you make Jesus proud. I'm sure he has a special place for you. My God is the God of love, sorry about yours.

    didn't know that money/fame gives you a crack at the pulpit!
    pretty sad isn't it!
    what does the Bible say…….. about a rich man's chances of going to heaven- - and a camel fitting through the eye of a needle
    then again- throughout history the Catholic church has taken money in exchange for salvation, for better seats in church, for prayers to get you to heaven (was always under the presumption that it was your words and deeds on earth that determined that)- one of the reasons that Martin Luther broke away - causing the Protestant Reformation

    Those people are crazy! I bet they missed a surmon full of anecdotes, wise cracks and shtick from one of the most hilarious people in Hollywood. Who says church can't be funny…I laugh at ministers all the time–I'm a Baptist.

    I dont know why people expect church leaders/people to act any more evolved than the average person. If we pay any attention to the news, they're not above anyone, sometimes they're below. pun intended.

    Ok, I don't know what is going on here, but it sounds like Alec is taking an interest in the town and he wants to be a part of it, not as an actor, but as a human being. He must feel a bit lonely and wants to be around people who won't judge him. Of course THAT is impossible, as that is what people do best, judge others. I just feel that by him showing up for every event, he is trying to get something into his life that he personally needs, as opposed to some calculating reason. I don't think it is all about getting attention, I think he feels like he wants to belong somewhere. I feel sorry for him. It just goes to show, not even giving money away can earn you a little respect. That town doesn't respect him.

    Sounds like a visit from Karma…..if you want respect earn it?

    Alec is always welcomed in a catholic church as a parishioner, not as a spokesmen for the Church. His anti-catholic policies are well know, not to mention his poor behavior when in the public eye. The church does not need a "sunday Angel" when his actions during the week indicate different……People have a right to listen and pray without a political spokesmen like Alec…If I were there, i would have walked out and return after his pontification.
