OJ To Become Preacher. Wait, What?

The National Enquirer reports that OJ Simpson is becoming a preacher. Yeah, I know it's the National Enquirer but I don't think they're any more ridiculous than most of the mainstream media.

As far as OJ goes, hey, a true conversion would be a wonderful thing. But I'm thinking that a little confession would be a good place to start. I don't think anyone believes a word this guy says until he tells the truth about the murder of his ex-wife.
“O.J. is very religious now, and he’s been counseling other inmates with Bible studies for months,” his manager Norman Pardo told The ENQUIRER.

“When I talk to him on the phone, all he wants to discuss is religion. He’s obsessed!”

The 66-year-old felon has been in the Lovelock Correctional Center since December 2008 on an armed robbery and kidnapping conviction. But behind bars, pals say Simpson claims he’s cleaned up his act and is focused on launching a worldwide crusade called “Holy Safari.”

“O.J. will tell you that he wants to bring people together, but that’s BS as far as I’m concerned,” said an insider. “There’s a lot of people send­ing bucket-loads of money to these TV preachers, and O.J.’s just looking to rake in millions from poor, unsuspecting Christians.

“It’s a dangerous idea to think of Simpson as a self-styled prophet who can reach people all over the world.”
And maybe the first act a preacher makes shouldn't be requesting money. I'm thinking this guy should learn some humility and work out his salvation with a little fear, trembling, and humility.

I'm getting the feeling with OJ that he thinks he's a little more clever than he is. He seems like a guy who was amazingly good at the first thing he really tried to be good at and has spent the rest of his life stunned that everything else isn't just as easy.



  1. Bet he won't clear his conscience and repent of the double murder.

  2. As to the National Enquirer, while I do not turn to it for news, I have heard from fairly reliable sources that their investigating is more thorough than that of CNN--but that is saying very little.

  3. I knew a man who became a Christian and felt called to the ministry. The problem was that 3 yrs prior, he had robbed a gas station and totally got away with it. His first act as a Christian was to turn himself in, plead guilty and serve his time. HE had a compelling and believable conversion story.

  4. While the Enquirer may be ridiculous 99% of the time, they were
    also the paper that broke the John Edwards story. For all their supposed
    commitment to "following the facts", the MSM had chosen to ignore that
