Man, I didn't realize brother Jed was still around. I used to see him 15 years ago. He'd stop by the campus every year to preach his unique message. I never was quite sure how to take Brother Jed. It often seemed he was purposefully presenting an extreme message so that people would react against him. It was always interesting to see Christians in the crowd speaking out against what he was pushing. It seemed to please him to no end to see the crowd siding with that other individual and, in the end, meeting him halfway. He had a very odd approach!

Oh my god he's still around???? He came to my college in Detroit 27 years ago. I ended up in a round about way, becoming student senate president because I stood up to him.

Jesus, he doesn't look a day older than when he came to our school. And is probably wearing the same vest.

I bet he sold his soul to the devil to not age or something.

Did he also make a big deal out of the fact the "The doobie brothers weren't really brothers and 'doobie' is slang for marjuana?" That is the one statement of his that has stuck with me for over a quarter of a century.

When are the religious people going to stop persecuting everyone not like them?

That is EXACTLY the kind of stuff I remember from him. I thought his presentation was hillarious. He'd make a statement like, "When I was in college I was in this fraternity and in that fraternity there was FORNICATION," and he'd have this smile on his face, almost like he was going to start laughing, like he knew that he was laying it on pretty thick. Look at this, here I am starting to get a little nostalgic for ol' Brother Jed!
