Atheist Group Calls Kanye West Prison Worship Service ‘Egregious’ Violation of Constitution

An atheist group has gone on the attack against rapper Kanye West for performing his Sunday Service at a Texas prison claiming that the event was an “egregious” violation of the U.S. Constitution.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) blasted Texas Sheriff Ed Gonzalez for allowing the “Jesus Walks” rapper to appear at the Harris County Jail in Houston, Texas, on November 17 in a four-page letter.

Kanye West performed his weekly Sunday Service before more than 500 inmates, both male and female, in two different services at the county jail facilities. The performance was given high praise by Texas Governor Greg Abbott who tweeted out his compliments saying, “If he moves just one person closer to God the world will be a more peaceful place.”

In its letter, the atheist group demanded that the county cease any other efforts to “organize or promote worship services in the future.”

They'd better read that Constitution again. Kanye has the right to practice that anywhere he wants. Bible studies are a core part of prison rehabilitation as well as other religious practices. Even atheism. Why don't you spend your energy in a positive way and go preach your ideas in prisons?

The extremism of atheists is offensive to me; I object to their intolerance of my Christian values and I especially object to their not recognizing Christ as my Lord and savior.

False. Not remotely true in the slightest.

I'm not particularly religious but I know that having faith that there is an all loving GOD has brought comfort and happiness to many people(especially the elderly) and it certainly doesn't hurt anyone.

Hey 8:25 AM,

Real Christians practice love and tolerance toward others. Give me a Christian over an intolerant atheist any day!

Hats off to Kanye!

While I don't like his music and the rants that he goes into, he can be over the top. I am glad he is a Christian and his belief is in God not too many rappers or movie stars support our President. And I think it's good he recognizing the need to go against a lot of mainstream Democrats in his industry.
