Prince reportedly once said he wanted President Obama to outlaw birthdays and Christmas.
“Why doesn’t Obama just outlaw birthdays?” the “Purple Rain” singer once asked Van Jones, the CNN political commentator reveals in a story published Thursday in GQ magazine.
The “Purple Rain” singer, who died in April at age 57 from an accidental drug overdose, was baptized as a Jehovah’s Witness in 2003. Jehovah’s Witnesses don’t celebrate birthdays because they “believe that such celebrations displease God” and because Christmas has pagan roots, according to the Church’s official website.
“Although we choose not to celebrate Christmas ourselves, we respect each person’s right to decide for himself in this matter. We do not interfere in the Christmas celebrations of others,” the website states.
Jones said Prince told him, “I was hoping that Obama as soon as he was elected, would get up and announce there’d be no more Christmas presents and no more birthdays — we’ve got too much to do.
Jones, who indicated he was laughing during the conversation with the music superstar, replied, “I don’t know if that would go over too well.”

You're supposed to be the genius here. You’re the man with the plan because of your insight in the Bethel House. Your questions just come to show how clueless you really are. If you can’t further your research on why Malcolm X and Muhammad Ali disassociated themselves from the Nation of Islam.
Figure it out. Read their “Bios”
Your false perception is your own undoing.
You haven’t figured out that everyone including you, have a problem with words.
the capacity or power of persons or things to be a compelling force on or produce effects on the actions, behavior, opinions, etc., of others:
He used family influence to get the contract.
the action or process of producing effects on the actions, behavior, opinions, etc., of another or others:
Her mother's influence made her stay.
a person or thing that exerts influence:
He is an influence for the good.
of extraordinary quality, as if arising from some external creative impulse
(of air or another substance) that is breathed in
Yes, I’m aware of many things you would like for it to be true to bolster your notoriety here. William Maesen's, just like any apostate driven drivel doesn’t make anything those people written anymore factual just because you're attempting to sell it as such.
As for “Fard” the scam was enlightenment, of what Christianity argument was at that time. One happened to be “hellfire”. Not that the Watchtower was playing a scam on people, rather how the Watchtower was interacting with people. Let’s not start twisting my words, your beginning to write like “O’Maly. Now your arrogance lies with court cases after the great depression.
What common cases were those, and did “any” of those have to do with civil liberties. Rutherford was making a specific argument as was the Nation of Islam. Are you suggesting these 2 were compatible?
