Beyonce’s Pastor Defends Her

It’s no secret that many Christian critics question Beyonce’s bold, boundary-pushing image, and recently, her pastor Rudy Rasmus spoke in her defense. In an interview with the Grio, Ramsus said that Beyonce, a long time member of his church, is just doing her job as a performer.

“Beyonce is a consummate entertainer, and an entertainer entertains,” said Rasmus. “Is the entertainer’s entertainment an expression of that person’s life and reality? I don’t know. But I know when Arnold Schwarzenegger straps on a 30 caliber cannon and blows planes out of the sky, nobody asks the question, ‘Arnold why are you walking around for those 90 minutes in that suit with that 30 caliber cannon? What kind of person are you?’ I don’t think I’ve heard that question. But at the end of the day, Arnold Schwarzenegger is an entertainer.”

Rasmus, who married Jay-Z and Beyonce, also spoke on the couple’s relationship, praising the health and strength of their bond.
