Gov. Greg Abbott Praises Kanye West for Sunday Service at Houston Jail

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) praised rap and fashion mogul Kanye West after the Grammy-winner brought his Sunday Service choir and held an emotional worship service this weekend at the Harris County Jail in Houston, Texas.

“Some question @kanyewest motives as he speaks of Jesus & performs in jails,” Gov. Abbott said on Sunday. “If he moves just one person closer to God the world will be a more peaceful place. The Lord works in mysterious ways. As Jesus said: You don’t understand what I’m doing now but someday you will.”
