This is uncanny to say the least, but real. Exactly one year ago today , I wrote a post called “The Gospel Of Domestic Violence” (copy and paste this link if you want to read it) https://studiotj.wordpress.com/?s=The+++++gospel+of+domestic+violence+
At any rate, the post dealt with gospel singer/radio personality James Fortune and his legal issues as it relates to domestic violence. When I wrote the initial post I was really, really angry with the things that were in the news concerning this artist. I had enjoyed his music and after some of the things that I read, I didn’t even want to hear anything from him (that was difficult because he has some great music). Fast forward to one day last week. I was in my car listening to Darlene McCoy on the “Nightly Spirit” (a gospel radio show) and she interviewed James Fortune. He came in and wanted to talk about his issues. I didn’t hear all of the interview but I heard enough to at least change my position. Fortune, who is responsible for such gospel hits as “Hold On”, “I Believe”, and “Live Through It”, spoke candidly to McCoy about his issues with anger management.
