Prince, a Republican Spokesman????

Do not want to get into a discussion of the Bible but...Yikes!

The purple one would not exactly my first choice. His Androgynousness in the New Yorker:

So here’s how it is: you’ve got the Republicans, and basically they want to live according to this.” He pointed to a Bible. “But there’s the problem of interpretation, and you’ve got some churches, some people, basically doing things and saying it comes from here, but it doesn’t. And then on the opposite end of the spectrum you’ve got blue, you’ve got the Democrats, and they’re, like, ‘You can do whatever you want.’ Gay marriage, whatever. But neither of them is right.”

When asked about his perspective on social issues—gay marriage, abortion—Prince tapped his Bible and said, “God came to earth and saw people sticking it wherever and doing it with whatever, and he just cleared it all out. He was, like, ‘Enough.’ ”

I'd've thought him to be the last person to be opining on "sticking it wherever..." Also, while I'll not call into question his JW faith or his knowledge of the Bible, I'm pretty sure that if he's referring to Jesus when he says "God came to earth," he's dead wrong. If he's referring to the visit to Abraham...and I'd be shocked if he were, maybe.
