Kanye West Held Worship Service For Prison Inmates, Atheist Group Argues It Violated Constitution

Published

on

Popular rap artist and born again Christian Kanye West recently held a surprise worship service in a county jail a week ago to share the hope of the gospel with those who are oh so desperate for the hope it provides.

However, this gesture of good will did not seem to go over well with atheist group Freedom From Religion Foundation. The group sent a letter to Sheriff Ed Gonzalez on Monday stating that a “church service” like the one West held in the jail should never happen again and that it violated the Constitution.

Here’s more from TheBlaze:

“It is our understanding that Harris County Sheriff officials organized two concerts for inmates and staff on Friday, November 15,” the letter recalls. “Kanye West and his choir performed songs from West’s recent religious album, ‘Jesus Is King,’ and the performances were ‘really more like a church service,’ a sentiment you explicitly and publicly admitted. Photos suggest this is true, too.”

The “photos” in reference show one tweet by Sheriff Gonzalez saying, “[Kanye West] and his choir brought some light and #churchservice to people who needed it today at the Harris County Jail,” and another recalling West’s words to inmates that “this is a mission, not a show.”

“In short, this was unconstitutional,” the atheist group’s letter said, arguing that the inmates didn’t really have a choice — “nobody believes there is a genuine choice between sitting in a cramped, locked cell, and listening to a two-hour long concert.”

“This constitutional violation is particularly egregious because it imposed religion on inmates — literally a captive audience — who have a deep and immediate interest in being seen favorably by [Sheriff Gonzalez] and [his] staff.”

“It is no excuse that Kayne West is famous,” the letter reads.

Jason Spencer, a spokesman for the Harris County Sheriff’s Office tweeted out, “Say what you want about the man. But [Kanye West] and his choir brought some light to people who needed it today at the Harris County Jail.”

The audience consisted of 200 male inmates, and then a second performance was held for the female inmates. How powerful was the experience? Several inmates got down on their knees to pray and many of the folks on West’s team were in tears.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott even tweeted out his support for Kanye, stating he wished other artists would follow his lead.

Biden: ‘200 Million People’ Will Be Dead From COVID By the Time I Finish This Speech [Watch]

This has to be a parody! Come on, man!

At this point, there are no words to describe Joe Biden anymore. The guy is just gone. How a person can vote for him in November literally makes zero sense. He’s not fit to run a hot dog stand, at this point. How can somebody get words mixed up so badly even when reading from a teleprompter!? According to the former VP, 200 mill…LOL, I can’t even type the sentence without laughing. Just check this out, via The Daily Wire: Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden struggled during a speech on Sunday, falsely claiming that estimates indicated that there would be 200 million people dead from COVID-19 by the time he was finished talking.

Half of the time, it’s just not even English. If Saturday Night Live played it down the middle, there would probably be some pretty funny skits mocking Joe. The already twice-failed presidential candidate had another classic speaking blunder, recently.

AOC: We Have to Consider Impeaching Trump or Bill Barr to Prevent SCOTUS Confirmation

WOWOWOW!!

Why did the Republican-controlled Senate delay a floor vote for Barack Obama’s SCOTUS pick back in 2016 after the death of Antonin Scalia? Because Obama was a lame-duck; on his way out of office. It only made sense to have the next president decide. President Trump is not a lame-duck, considering he can still win a second term. Therefore, it makes sense for the GOP-controlled Senate to push through 45’s nominee. But Dems don’t exactly see things that way. And their hypocrisy will be exposed below in just a few minutes. First, check out AOC – from TDW: Far-left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said during a press conference on Sunday that Democrats must be open to all options in their attempts to stop President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) from filling the Supreme Court seat that was vacated last week.
