Touching a gun will likely get your probation revoked or your parole violated.

Exactly! If these are inmates (Locked up in Jail), how are they suppose to remove guns off the street?, since they are off the streets too.

By freeing them and having them go as a new army from house to house of honest law abiding citizens and taking them away, that is how.

Or even better, he could ask them to stop having babies with multiple baby daddies out of wedlock.

To stop supporting Dems? That’s a tall order. Even for the Rev. Jackson.

Black pastors are great at getting people to pray for forgiveness, but I hardly ever hear them tell their congregation to ask for forgiveness from those they’ve wronged and try and make amends.

Incomplete gospel is essentially non-existent gospel.

Well, the literal gospel is to be forgiven and go and “sin no more” / “stop sinning” / “leave your life of sin” [pick your preferred accurate translation of the Greek]. Amends may appear, and a sincere believer would want to make amends anyhow, but God has the right and power to forgive with or without that. God’s only truly invariable purpose in forgiving sin, is that the sin will end.

Get tested for HIV, register to vote and pray for forgiveness.

Not too stupid and very different from his usual drivel. Especially the last part.

Democrats created 40+ years of welfare checks and hopelessness among minorities and others in exchange for votes. They see the nice things others have and the only way to get it is through crime due to a lack of education and incentive. Fix the problem you helped create Jesse.

If you are felon....you can't vote.

“If you are a felon...you can’t vote”

This is true.

But if I understand the article he was preaching at a jail (unconvicted people) not a prison (convicted people).

I completely agree with your assessment of Jackson (and his brother in arms Sharpton).

My point being..for a change he wasn’t spouting his usual “the man is keeping you down”..”you have to rise up against the man” bs. It actually seemed he was calling for a tiny amount of personal responsibility.

No I don’t. Do you?

The only thing I know of this is what is posted in the article on this thread.

Since I consider JJ an idiot, I don’t keep his sermons archived. /s

As I have already said...ANYTHING positive is pretty amazing coming out of his mouth.

Jesse should make sure Al Sharpton or Slow Joe are around when he speaks so he wouldn’t seem to be the stupidest person around.
