Ralph Fults, fellow inmate and future member of the Barrow Gang, said he watched Clyde Barrow go from a schoolboy to a rattlesnake while in prison. I believe it was Johnny Cash who said that we all have our own prisons at one time or another that we must deal with. He was very correct. A prison might be having upwards of 100 or more women down through the years rejecting your offer of Christian fellowship and love. And then the grief and torment that follows. And then watching some of these self-serving, self-patronizing, egomaniac Primitive Baptist preachers turn a deaf ear upon you when you present a simple request before them. Those who set themselves up in high places, yet philander and run around on their wife, and marry again a year later. Needless to say, this is not Primitive Baptist, as once was the definition. Merely a modernistic, watered down version between SBC and ABA.
