St. Agnes' Pastor: "This is real church"

KTRK-13's Laura Whitley reports on the pastor of St. Agnes Baptist Church, which recently threw open its doors to evacuees:

St. Agnes' Pastor Gene Moore realizes this isn't home. But he didn't hesitate to let the Red Cross run the operation out of his new sanctuary.

"So, I'm not having church but we are doing really doing church," said Pastor Moore.

Doing church in a building the congregation hasn't even moved into.

"This is real church, this is what church is about," said Pastor Moore.

What a refreshing attitude, considering some churches in town were silent for days as the evacuees started arriving (and that church never threw open its doors to evacuees, lest the television broadcasts be interrupted).
