Sinners in the Hands of a [ ] God

From Today's Opinion Journal:

GOT GOD? says that hip-hop is getting religion--that "Kanye West has the song of the summer with 'Jesus Walks.'" The first verse, MTV news reports, is about a drug dealer who prays that the Lord will protect him while he hustles. The next verse begins as follows: "I ain't here to argue about his facial features / Or here to convert atheists into believers / I'm just trying to say the way schools needs teachers / The way Kathie Lee needed Regis / That's the way y'all need Jesus." To tell you the truth, we're not sure whether this is tony or tacky.

There is a Reb Shlomo story about that featuring The Baal Shem Tov, Reb Baruch of Mezibodz (sp.), and, I think, Reb Yaakov Yoseph of Polonoye.

(Slow week in blogging.)
