The number of times I've been to church, not counting funerals, I can count on one hand. I wasn't raised in a religious household, and as an adult, I continue my heathen ways unlabeled. I think I turned out okay. So last May it came as a great relief that I didn't burst into flames the moment we entered Yoido Full Gospel Church, home of the largest Christian congregation in the world. This was one of Dave's more investigative stories involving the church leader's embezzlement scandal, so I was a bit nervous pointing my camera around and drawing attention to ourselves. In the end we didn't have any issues, but it was definitely an experience I won't forget anytime soon.
The whole experience in general confused me: the speaking in tongues, the healing of cancers, the complete denial of any wrongdoing regarding the embezzlement of church funds. You can read more about that here.
