Bobby from EX Times reports:
Last evening gospel recording artist Kirk Franklin was a guest on the Monique Show to discuss his relief efforts in Haiti. Kirk spoke about the devastation in Haiti and how we all should take Haitian victims into our homes because they have no place to live. One should question how many Haitian victims he has taken in (side eye). Kirk seems to be just another opportunist that is exploiting this tragedy as a way of resurfacing back in the public eye seeing that his popularity and public presence is dwindling. A true preacher of the Gospel of Jesus should be more concerned about standing up for God to those positioned directly in front of them (Monique) rather than the relief of a foreign land. Haitians need help and so does Monique. Why are these church folks ignoring her soul for the sake of their own promotion?
The saddest part of this interview was a point where Monique referred to God as “that thang up there”(gasp), of which Kirk never corrected or questioned this, but laughed it off. This should not come as a surprise to anyone.Monique’s show is an opportunity to promote oneself, not God, so in the end, God gets demoted and the artists get promoted! This is opportunistic mindset (1 Kings Chap 1) that is being accepted in the body of Christ, and fast becoming the in thing to do when you desire to resurface into the public eye. Kirk Franklin used his detainment in Uganda to get youtube hits, and now is using the tragedy of Haiti to get TV time. I’m sure this is all a ploy to stay relevant, at least until the 3rd season of “Sundays Mess” premiers.
