Beyonce's Pastor speaks on the Criticism She Gets, Calls It Censorship

Posted in: , ,

Beyonce attends the St. John’s United Methodist Church when home in Texas, and humanitarian and author Rudy Rasmus is a co-pastor at the church. Beyonce's parents Tina and Matthew Knowles, as well as her best friend Kelly Rowland, have also been members of the church for a long time. Rudy Rasmus was also the minister that joined Jay Z and Beyoncé when they got married in 2008.

He was interviewed by The Grio and says when asked of the criticism from some parts of the public, especially Christians, who denounce her sexy videos, explicit lyrics in her songs, and some of her outfits while performing on stage.

“Beyoncé is a consummate entertainer, and an entertainer entertains.

Is the entertainer’s entertainment an expression of that person’s life and reality? I don’t know.

But I know when Arnold Schwarzenegger straps on a 30 caliber cannon and blows planes out of the sky, nobody asks the question, ‘Arnold why are you walking around for those 90 minutes in that suit with that 30 caliber cannon? What kind of person are you?’ I don’t think I’ve heard that question.

But at the end of the day, Arnold Schwarzenegger is an entertainer.

I think a person has the right to earn a living in the way that they are gifted, and I think that she is tremendously gifted and I think she expresses that gift in some amazing ways.

I think the world would be void an extreme talent if we silenced her or censored her.”

The pastor also spoke about Beyonce and Jay Z's relationship that it is stronger than ever. “They’re friends. Their relationship is healthy and life has been good.”.
