Just the other day we claimed to have discovered the quote of the year, only to now realize that we were a wee bit hasty in giving out that coveted prize: we had forgotten to read the Stephen Baldwins epic, instant classic autobiography; The Unusual Suspect: My Calling to the New Hardcore Movement of Faith.
We kid you not, Stephen Baldwin has written about his extraordinary, 9/11 inspired spiritual journey, and being unable to decide which is the most deserving quote we decided to bring you some of the juicest titbits.
ON PLEASURES OF THE FLESH: "I like to ask friends of mine, happy couples who seem to have a pretty good marriage, I will ask them, 'How's your sex life?'...They will say something like pretty good or okay or no complaints here. Here's what I tell them: Imagine taking a healthy sex life and inviting the power of God into that exchange."
[Ah, the ménage à trois with God. I remember the time my man invited lauren to join in with our healthy sex life.... he didnt remain my man for long, but me and Lauren sure did get closer...]
ON HUMILITY:" 'But let me just tell you,' I screamed at God. 'You better be real, because if you aren't, you will regret the day you ever messed with Stephen Baldwin.' "
[If I had a pound for everytime I yelled at a non-existent god for fooling me into believing he existed....]
And my personal favourite;
ON VENGEANCE: "Here I'd always imagined Jesus was the sweet, cuddly, loving dude, and suddenly I find out he makes Conan the Barbarian look like Conan the wimp. He didn't come with a guitar singing Kum Ba Yah. Jesus brought a sword to the earth, and he is still swinging it."
- who knew Big J was just like Conan? Really, who told him this??
