Jesus is a Gangsta - Queen Latifah

There's an interesting interview over at Beliefnet with the African American rapper/actress Queen Latifah, where she calls Jesus and God her homeboys..
Gang for God
"I just thank God first for everything. And then we just talk about whatever’s on my mind or whatever I’m thinking about. Sometimes I pray when I really feel like I need God to help me with something, and sometimes we just have conversations. We just kick it. God is my homeboy. Jesus is my homeboy. My mom would always crack up at me. I’m glad someone finally put it on a t-shirt, ‘cause I used to say that all the time. I’m like, "Ma, Jesus is a gangsta.” Think about it, when he’s ready to preach, he gathered up a crew. Now, 12 dudes walking around sound like a gang to me. But it was just a gang for God, a gang for Jesus, which is all good. Of course he can relate to the poor." Read the full Queen Latifah interview at Beliefnet
