If there is a Watts or East St. Louis, in heaven, I am sure he will be the mayor.
That legitimately made me laugh out loud.
I think the prodigal son reference is a great one, and I can totally buy that.
But I also know how many people - especially those from largely Christian families - live their lives off their parents' faith for years or decades before ever actually making their faith personal.
I hope to God I'm wrong on this. I hope it's just a season of rotten fruit. But if we're going to questions the Justin Biebers and Kanye Wests on their sincerity, I see nothing sophomoric or butthurt about questioning Jerry's sincerity either.
And for the record - neither Jerry or Becki have ever done anything to me personally. I have nothing to hold a grudge against them about. But as the leader of a Christian university that has over 100,000 students, and as a nationwide witness of Christianity, I'm going to hold him to the same standards I hold other Christian leaders to.
