Religious rocker Prince is knocking on the doors of U.S. politicians, preaching about his faith as a Jehovah's Witness.
The Sexy M.F. singer became a Jehovah's Witness in 2001 and is using the faith to fight what he considers the extreme ideals held by America's duelling political parties.
He tells the New Yorker magazine, "Here's how it is: you've got the Republicans, and basically they want to live according to this (the 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 including gay marriage and abortion, the singer reportedly tapped a copy of the Bible, adding, "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'."

Old Prince Please. I love Prince,I hope he comes to his senses and doesn't squander his career for a cult. Jehovah's Witnesses (Watchtower sect) are the worst of the worst among the hardcore fundys.They don't believe in hellfire just make it hell on earth for members who try to leave their cult.Lots of twisted teachings,no blood transfusions, only 144,000 go to heaven,child abuse and abuse of women and elderly. --Danny Haszard

Danny oh Danny, We all have our opinions about religion, but if you've never been there, how can you talk about it. Obviously the man has found something that has satisfied that "burning desire within his soul". If you know anything about the man and his music, you would know that he has been searching to find the "Truth" and he has found it. To say that it is a cult is not up to you or anyone else to judge, especially if you have never been. And even if you have been, then you would know that not everyone is going to respond to the "Truth". It all comes out in the wash Danny, and hopefully the ones who do respond stick, because Satan is very busy trying to blind the minds of the meek.

We all sin and fall short of the glory of God. There is not a person born on this earth that is perfect and the sins of a few cannot and should not be projected onto the many. Those few, as well as the many, will be judged and have to render an accounting to the almighty, whether they are Baptist, Catholic, Muslim or otherwise, Do not be fooled, there IS a small group of people compared to the billions here on earth that will benefit from Gods loving kindness and just like in the days of Noah, only a small group will be spared from his wrath. We humans have to understand that we are not the judges, but the judged. Live your life in harmony with Gods word and don't worry about what someone else is doing or not doing. Even the best and strongest of us are open to Satans attacks, but it's what you do after the dust settles that makes the difference. Live4Love
