Disgraced American football legend and retired actor O.J. Simpson is reportedly planning to become a televangelist after his release from a five year prison term some time this Christmas.
The troubled star’s manager Norman Pardo told The Enquirer that Simpson found God in prison and has been ministering to inmates for a while now. He reportedly even converted his white supremacist cellmate to Christianity.
“O.J. is very religious now, and he’s been counseling other inmates with Bible studies for months,” Pardo explained in the report. “When I talk to him on the phone, all he wants to discuss is religion. He’s obsessed!”
Since December 2008, Simpson, 66, has been incarcerated at the Lovelock Correctional Center in Nevada after he was convicted of armed robbery and kidnapping charges.
He has reportedly used his time behind bars to mend his ways and relationship with God and now wants to share his peace in a worldwide crusade billed “Holy Safari.”
From The Christian Post, which isn’t normally a parody site, but hopefully just this once …
I reminded of one of the few Dennis Miller lines that remains funny. Speaking of convicted Watergate felon Chuck Colson turning his life over to Jesus, Miller said, “I guess Jesus didn’t see him coming first.”
