Odd use of Mandaean Baptism picture in the NY TImes
Robert Wright for the NY Times writes about a desire to be cleansed by being born again and baptized as a young baptist in El Paso, Texas. But the illustration for the article is given the caption "A Mandaean Sabian follower in prayer in the Tigris River after being baptized during the ceremony of the Golden Baptism" and no clarification offered in the article. At the very least, the Mandaean understanding of baptism is not the same!
