Quotes Joshua A. Beal: My question is about my Aunt Denise. She's not baptized, so that means she's going to Hell right?
Sister Terry: Uh, no, actually she's not, Joshua.
Joshua A. Beal: And my dad's best friend, he's not baptized either, and that means *he's* going to hell.
[kids beginning to clammer nervously]
Sister Terry: Joshua, I think you misunderstood.
Student: Oh man! Seth Greenburg rides my bus, he's not baptized...
Sister Terry: Okay, wait a sec...
Student #2: Hey, my cousin's going to hell?
Sister Terry: No, I don't think...
Student: The family living next door - their whole house is going to hell!
Sister Terry: No, that's not what it says in the book. If you'll notice, on page four... Ok alright, quiet! No one is going to Hell!
