The Rev. George Clements (left) and Louis Gossett Jr. (right) applaud a speaker during a press conference at the Hotel Elegante in Beaumont Thursday, June 16, 2004. They are in town in honor of the One Church One Child 25th anniversary. Planned events of the "Juneteenth Celebration" include a movie viewing of "The Father Clements Story" and a golf tournament.

In the 1987 television movie being screened, Gossett portrayed Clements, who founded the One Church One Child organization to recruit, train, and support families and individuals who want to adopt or foster children.

Deadline pop quiz: Where in the AP Stylebook can a journalist find the guidelines to write the title of a clergy member?
The answer is in the comments section.

The pop quiz is a trick question. The answers are religious titles or father (depends on religion and title).

I've always liked Louis Gossett Jr. movies. He seems like a great dude.

You talk of this AP Stylebook as something I should use other than to support for my monitor at work...Just kidding, I have actually been reaching for it more since you have been quizing us. I just have to lift the monitor up first.

From what I understand, they're also excellent substrate material for paper-mache hamsters. ;-}
