Knoxville is leading a trend in the bible-belt of church-related ‘flash mobs.’ The latest, causing quite a stir at World’s Fair Park, involved a gathering of more than 100 people that spontaneously baptized picnickers and other visitors relaxing near the waterfall and damn.

The event, called a ‘flashtism’ has generated debate as to its effectiveness. Effective or not, with the exception of one accidental drowning, organizers are quick to point out that nobody has been harmed.
