A religious tale with an unusual hook
Hookers for Jesus, have you heard of ’em? I hadn’t either, until they were featured in Sunday’s Los Angeles Times.
These “fishers of men” used to troll for tricks, but they became street evangelists after turning their own lives over to God. They also spread their message from an online pulpit — two former prostitutes, now pimping for the Lord.
Billy Graham once teased Woody Allen about becoming a minister, suggesting that the worst sinners often make the best preachers. Thumb through the books of the Bible, and you’ll find more than a few characters who prove his point. My childhood observations bore witness to that, as well.
I’m not comfortable commenting on other people’s lifestyle choices, nor would I ever feel qualified to judge someone’s spirituality. But I’d sure like to listen in on these women’s sermons, and I’d love to interview them about their personal stories.
