        meanwhile, I automatically fast forward 40 seconds to get past the tiresome intro to what is actually a good segment...

                        ... okay. If that was his attempt at speaking tongues that was sad... (I say as someone raised in a church that preached it). Dude. No singing? No peppering of names of God? No singing holy holy? 1/5 stars. (He gets 1 star for swaying. The swaying is important)

                                              I had a friend in high school who said his granny could speak in tongues while hunting in her purse for a piece of gum.

                                                I am a Muslim now and have been for 16 years. However growing up I tried out several churches. I grew up in a regular christian church with no denomination. Simply christian church. We had our neighbor Methodists and a little down the road baptists. Now in the city about 40 minutes away there was the holy rollers. We always called them that. It was actually a completely white church ( virginia /west virginia lines)
                                                Now I had began studying Islam then and I had been living in Morocco maybe 2 years. I was then 18 years old and had traveled there with my mom who had a small company there. When the company closed we moved back and though i had inwardly accepted Islam , my grandparents pressured me to go back to church.
                                                Now I had never seen this type in person only on tv. So when i walked in and people were running the aisles, throwing themselves on the floor, and doing their " tongues" I didnt know what to think. Was this a zoo or a church? Now their Tongues they said "came to them" that each person had their own tongue and they had to find it and then it would release their inner heart and soul and open more to God.
                                                Now growing up in the christian church we knew tongues meant speaking other languages. That particular verse in the bible they use for the support of "tongues" was referring to when God made all the people speak different languages so they couldn't understand each other because all they did was fight. Branching out afterwards into the various languages that exist in the world.
                                                They take it as we each have an "inner" tongue that we have to use. Now tell me... how do you get that you have your own language deep within? You got english folks. Sorry thats what you got. Others got spanish, some french, some arabic. You got the bloodline of english speakers. Thats it . That is your tongue and your language. Unless you choose to learn another or have a mixed family, this is your tongue. So you speak in your language. Not random gibberish . ooo la la ba ba gh ta lalaaaaaa...
                                                Now i was encouraged to speak "tongues" which i couldnt. I had no idea what to do. I listened to others near me spouting off sounds. What i realized is these people find a particular sound or set of sounds they like and just keep repeating. I went to this church with them for several months and got used to knowing what each person who sat near me did. It was never anything new. Just the same repeated sounds.
                                                They were also very high pressure. There was no cutting hair, wearing pants, or anything like that for females. They also could not marry outside of the church if they grew up in it. So girls i spoke to said, well our pickings are few there is only 2 boys i can choose from and one is my brother. So sadly i will end up having to marry ______. I felt sad for her. They walk around with oil and expect to see you in your "tongues" state and they want to come and anoint you and keep praying over you as you are to shake and quake and some fall to the floor.
                                                Nicest people you can find but weird as hell. To this day i do not understand how educated we are in our country that we can fall for these types of things without sitting and thinking... Is this a logical way to reach God? Is this an acceptable form of prayer? Throwing ourselves around, running, and screaming nonsense?

                                                        Well, this spectacle should show you that "speaking in tongues" is a giant scam game. If he was really "full of the spirit" he wouldn't be distractable. Guess his God just isn't that interesting.
