Kayne West’s recent concert at a Houston jail, which featured a choir and used songs from his new album, “Jesus is King,” was an “egregious” violation of the separation of church and state, a national atheist group alleges in a complaint filed with the local sheriff.
“This was about a superstar using his notoriety to pressure a captive audience into accepting his particular brand of religion,” said Andrew L. Seidel, director of Strategic Response for the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF).
In a four-page letter to Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez, Seidel also requested that public records related to all correspondence, emails and concert notices between West’s team and officials from the jail or sheriff’s department be provided to FFRF within 10 days.
As Christian Headlines previously reported, West performed surprise concerts at both the men’s and women’s facilities on Nov. 15. West was in Houston that weekend as part of his national “Sunday Service” tour and spoke at Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church.
During the jail concerts, several officials, including Gonzalez, tweeted out photos of the performances.
WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
What is your response?
If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
