OJ Simpson 'wants to host a religious tv show after getting out of prison....

FULL TITLE: OJ Simpson 'wants to host a religious tv show after getting out of prison where he has converted his white supremacist cellmate to Christianity'

OJ Simpson’s religious rebirth behind bars has seen him counsel fellow inmates and convert a white supremacist to Christianity – and now he wants to take his show on the road for television.

Simpson, 66, has always been religious, but his five years behind bars have given him time to focus on religion and have brought him closer to God, MailOnline has learned. Expecting to be out of prison by Christmas, he plans to host a tv show called ‘Holy Safari,’ according to his promoter.

The former NFL great now spends his time reading multiple versions of the Bible, even the Quran, and giving advice to and converting fellow inmates, promoter Norman Pardo told MailOnline before comparing ‘The Juice’ to a prophet.

Originally reported by the National Enquirer, Mr Simpson has become very religious behind bars. As a decision on the appeal of his armed robbery and kidnapping convictions nears, the groundwork is being laid for a return to the spotlight.

‘He’s always been religious inside of the prison,’ Mr Pardo said. ‘He helps people who can’t find their way.’

One of those people was a cellmate of OJ’s the first year he was locked up, Mr Pardo boasted.

A white supremacist, Mr Simpson was able to convert the man to Christianity, one of many converts during ‘The Juice’s time in the pokey.

A message left with a Nevada Department of Corrections spokesperson seeking comment on Mr Simpson’s religious activities behind bars was not immediately returned.

Does that include Genesis 9:6?

I guess he could become a Muslim and film “honor killings” for us.

Certainly he has experience with how to hold a knife so the blood doesn’t make it too slick to drop.

It's just when he's outside of the prison that we need to worry.

Oh, good gravy. Maybe there’s a market for “You can kill your ex-wife if you want,” theology. I know ... Moslems!

From one of his movies? That sounds familiar, like from one of the Naked Gun movies.

He’s seen how much money other lying, cheating, low lives are making on TV he wants to go get some.

I'm guessing Jesus would not have approved of a disciple decapitating his ex-wife and her friend, but I'm not really schooled in religion so I don't know that for sure.

Like anyone, he could pray his way out of hell, if his prayer were based on faith in the Savior Jesus Christ.

I suspect it is OJ’s cell mate who has to be sleeping with a racist.

First came Oral Roberts.

Now Oral O.J.

Had no idea OJ was a white supremacist

You just can't make this up. As my mother used to tell me- " Truth is Stranger than Fiction"

"The footballer’s awakening hasn’t happened since he was in prison, he has always been religious according to Mr Pardo. The promoter said he has known Mr Simpson since the late 1990s.

Upbeat: O.J. Simpson (R) smiles at the end of an evidentiary hearing in Clark County District Court on May 17

" ‘Most people just think of him as a murderer because they don’t know the other side,’ he added."

Did he admit to the murders yet?

That will be the day.

OJ Simpson following in line with King Henry VIII.
Killed his wifes, started his own religion.

Meh, someone’s got a book to push. The National Enquirer, on the other hand, says he has been running around with a homosexual gang, has gained about a hundred pounds of blubber, and doesn’t care because he fully expects to die in prison.
