Ever been cornered in church by someone who wants to talk your ear off about all the latest ways Obama is ruining this country or some other boring stuff you’ve already read on Facebook a thousand times?
Of course, you don’t want to be rude and just walk away while they’re mid-sentence.
So, here are a few methods of escape that just might do the trick:
1. “Oh, while I have you here, the church needs a few volunteers...”
2. Respond to everything they say with "Amen!" ... EVERYTHING.
If you follow us on Twitter at @BackRowBeliever or @BackRowOnline, you may have noticed that something has changed.
Continuing our attempt to mold our ministry into a more cohesive outlet, we’re combining our Back Row Online account with the humor account @BackRowBeliever. Since he is not anonymous anymore and the ministry is growing, the character of Back Row Believer, first known as Back Row Baptist, is being retired.
I know. It’s a sad day for humanity.
But, there’s good news! The funny isn’t stopping! We’ve swapped our accounts around and what was formally @BackRowBeliever is now @BackRowOnline (and no, you can’t swipe the BRB Twitter handle, identity thieves! We've got it protected!).
Matt Coker will still be posting hilarious stuff all day, but we’ll also post a few inspirational/motivational things too, along with a links to some awesome content and videos from The Back Row.
So, don’t bail, don’t panic, and don’t fret! Things are going to be okay.

I’m a huge football fan. Specifically, I like the St. Louis Rams. Actually, ‘like’ is not a strong enough word. I love the Rams. I originally became a fan in 1998. Their logo – the ram’s horn on the helmet – was my reasoning. Affectionately, I called them the Swirls (don’t hate me…I was 5). Some people think I’m a bandwagon fan, since the Rams won their only championship (the name of which I will avoid so as to avoid the wrath of the NFL) in 1999. Truly, that was just a coincidence.
I will admit, however, that I wasn’t a big fan at that point. My dad and my brother had favorite teams, so I had mine. It wasn’t until around 2004 that I really began to follow the Rams. Marshall Faulk. Isaac Bruce. Torry Holt. Not Kurt Warner, he was gone at that point. Instead, I rooted for Marc Bulger. Anyway, I’m not just going to talk about my favorite team. I do have a point here.
As I grew to love football even more, I grew to hate certain teams as well. The New England Patriots? Hated ‘em. They stopped the Rams from winning another championship in 2001. The Seattle Seahawks? Hated ‘em. They’re in the Rams division and they have players that can be…let’s just say…irritating.
