The Missionary currently known as Prince

Or, tonight we're going to party like it's 1929!

Knocking on a door near you soon! Best news ever! I'd happily talk about the Bible with him, 'specially those good friends David and Jonathan, why God hates Shrimp, and if you really dislike your mother-in-law, how would you go about turning her into a pillar of salt? (What can I say, I spent years, years of my life in church with no reading material but the KJV, which has some rather fun bits.)
We, if I was really lucky, could also trade fashion and gossip tips: High heels and fishnets, wearable year-round or more of a summer fashion? And that Darlin' Nikki, what time should I show up at church to hear you play it?

From his hometown paper, the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

He told the magazine that he attends meetings at a local Kingdom Hall, and
he leaves his gated community in Los Angeles at times to knock on doors and
proselytize. "Sometimes people act surprised, but mostly they're really cool
about it," he said.

Oh, and Prince, I promise I'd be cool about it.

Ironically enough----considering his sexually confusing, feminine persona---- , he has now been accused of being anti-gay for statements like this:

(From the New Yorker)

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.’ ”
