Kirk Franklin performs with Kanye West, Christians lose their minds, Kirk responds

It seems as if last night Kirk Franklin and Kanye West took a picture together, which angered the Super Saints Coalition Against Everything.

Here’s Kirk’s response…

Kanye is not me. I am not him. He is my brother I am proud to do life with. No sprints, but Marathons; like most of us are on. Before one song was released, I was crucified because my brother asked me to take a picture. Again "no Kanye, you're not good enough"? No. That is a dangerous message I believe we send to the world when our posture is they have to meet certain requirements before they are worthy to kiss the ring. It says people are not redeemable, forgivable or candidates for grace. That my friend is religious. I will not turn my back on my brother. I will love him, prayerfully grow with him. However long he'll have me, and however long the race takes. To a lot of my Christian family, I'm sorry he's not good enough, Christian enough, or running at your pace…and as I read some of your comments, neither am I. That won't stop me from running. Pray we win.

The other day, I said that I was glad that the good Lord doesn’t  have the same requirements and restrictions as some of my fellow Christians do. If He did, none of us would make it.

While I didn’t watch the Saturday Night Live performance last night, I read someone who said, “Kirk Franklin prayed for Kanye West on national TV last night.” That, in and of itself, has power.

No, Kanye doesn’t make gospel music. Yes, his music actually glorifies behavior that isn’t of God. And yes, there’s still room for redemption and prayer for him.

Religion vs. a follower of Christ. Which one are you participating in?

Kanye West calls his wife a bitch in new song, but he says she’s cool with it.

(Quick correction: I’ve been informed that Kanye is referring to asking Kim about the Taylor Swift line (because asking your wife for her blessing to call another woman a bitch is…..), NOT about calling her a bitch. Eh. You never know with Kanye.)

As you may have heard, Kanye West hosted a fashion show at Madison Square Garden last night, Yeezy Season 3. Here, he streamed his new album, “The Secret Life of Pablo.”

This is a lyric from one of Kanye West’s new songs

I bet me and Ray J would be friends

If we ain’t love the same b*tch

Yeah, he might have hit it first

Only problem is I’m rich

He also mentions Taylor Swift on the track “Famous”…

For all my Southside n–gas who will know me best

I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex

Why, I made that bitch famous

God damn

I made that bitch famous

But apparently, everybody is cool with everything…

And just for fun, if you were wondering how he feels about Bill Cosby…

I mean look. I think his lyric about his WIFE is disgusting, but I mean…if she’s cool with it then *shrugs*

Good luck with all of that, everybody.

I just saw this….

Wow. So….well, wow.

Kanye is about to learn a lesson, here.

SMH

In case you missed it… Beyoncé’s new song/video, “Formation”

There are rumors that The Queen was going to perform new music tomorrow during her Super Bowl performance, and then this happens today…

 

Given this video, I now believe the rumors about her performance tomorrow.

1. She’ll perform new music.. and 2.Blue will be on stage.

 

Look. Beyoncé made this video for the people. This right here is full of all things black. Yes ma’am.

And you better believe the BeyHive will have all the lyrics AND the same routine down in time for the performance tomorrow.

MESSAGE.

YOUR. FAVE. COULD. NEVER.
