He didn’t “pinch the incense!”

Today’s news gives a very good example of someone who refused to the “pinch the incense” of the dominate cultural narrative. The Rev. Jasper Williams Jr. of the Salem Bible Church in Atlanta, giving the eulogy at the “Queen of Soul’s” memorial service touched on Aretha Franklin’s life and career but also criticized black-on-black crime and said single mothers are incapable of raising sons by themselves. He said black America has lost its soul and that it’s “now time for black America to come back home.”

As expected some are criticizing his remarks as “homophobic, sexist, misogynist, and bigoted.” Check the link above and hear for yourself, a man whom Ms. Franklin chose to give her eulogy. You will hear the heart of someone who refuses to “pinch the incense.”
