Messages in tongues down among Pentecostals

Pentecostal churchgoers have been ?speaking with tongues? for decades. Now some Baptists, Presbyterians and Episcopalians are practicing glossolalia, the utterance of unintelligible sounds whose source practitioners say is God. The spread of glossolalia is causing controversy in Protestant groups where it is found. ?Speaking with tongues? is done at a Pentecostal Church of God meeting at Memorial Auditorium in Dallas, Texas, Aug. 25, 1964.
