BISHOP JOE SIMON SAYS: Billions of dollars are being made through destroying our youth
We must address "music" in order to help society
The music from the song entitled "300 Shots" is performed by Rap Artists 50 Cent, DJ Whoo Kid, Lloyd Banks, Tony Yayo, Young Buck, M.O.P., Mobb Deep and Mase. The song "300 Shots" sounds very close and appears to be the same music as the music from Joe Simon's hit song "Theme From Cleopatra Jones," written, composed and performed by Joe Simon.
Bishop Joe Simon says, "Music is good and music is bad, but music is extremely bad and destructive when music is not used in a positive way. As a Minister, I say to you, all of us should think about and imagine how our Children feel when the family and the community lets them down. To play and promote provocative degrading music that rapes the minds and the hearts of our children is morally corrupt. Using lyrics that call our Children and Grandchildren prostitutes, the N word and the B word is totally disrespectful, it is ugly, negative and it is out of order, I tell you, it is also very destructive to our youth, destructive to the family and destructive to the community. We as a family and a community are suffering from this constant contagious global enemy concerning this music conduct."
But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.
"A city's economy is only as good as its infrastructure, and its infrastructure is only as good as the character of the people"
...Bishop Joe Simon
When our children listen to offensive, belligerent, poisonous music it is harmful and devastating to the character, the well-being and the future of our children. When you play and promote belittling, poisonous, derogatory music it negatively affects the thought process of our children in the community, on a local, national and international basis, and just because you can market and sell rude, ill-mannered destructive music, it does not mean that it is right.
To combat the evils plaguing communities, Bishop Joe Simon formed Joe Simon Ministries, which is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization moving across the country through Bishop Joe Simon Community Crusade (BJSCC) and the Joe Simon Community Outreach. BJSCC includes local youth, high school and college choirs assembled by Bishop Joe Simon from each city visited.
BJSCC visits youth facilities, hospitals, nursing and retirement centers and battered women's shelters. BJSCC raises and leaves money in each community visited.
