Well knock me over with a feather. I checked and it's him.
Along with Roy Orbison, the town of Vernon, Texas was the home of Kenneth Starr, a true scholar, a fine gentleman and a committed Christian. Although he's church of Christ, there are sufficient similarities with Southern Baptists (especially in terms of a Conservative outlook and traditional cultural values) that he's a good fit at Baylor.
I think FReepers reading this this thread will enjoy Starr's Christmas Card. There's no equivocation in his greeting, instead unabashedly wishing all a joyous Christmas.
