Louis Farrakhan, The Nation of Islam’s infamous leader, is known for issuing some bizarre commentary on a variety of social and political issues. Earlier this week, while speaking at Alabama A&M University, Farrakhan made the curious claim that Jesus was a black Muslim. On Thursday night, while giving an address at Jefferson Street Missionary Baptist church in Nashville, Tennessee, his questionable ideals continued to flow.
The faith leader, who is known for his fiery sermons, doesn’t need to look far to find a catalyst for his seemingly never-ending personal angst. Even the event’s location was a point of contention for the minister. After his plans to speak at Tennessee State University (TSU) fell through, Farrakhan accused the higher education facility of purposefully keeping him off of the campus.
“What was wrong with me coming up on the campus?,” he asked the audience. “Well, I want you to go back after this lecture and tell them Farrakhan wants to come and we‘ve invited him again and I’m coming back — no lies! No excuse!”
In a phone interview with The Blaze, TSU spokesperson Rick Delahaya denied Farrakhan’s claims about the location of the event.
“It never was supposed to be held out here. There was a big conflict with campus facilities,” Delahaya explained. “We were trying to work with them…the facilities that they were requesting — they just weren’t available.”

On a personal note, since I lived in a very strict Muslim country, Saudia Arabia, for a year, and had more than ample opportunity to visit with those of the Muslim faith while there, I was "schooled" that Jesus was not the son of God but a false prophet, Mohammed being the true prophet. There is no way that any one of the Muslims in that country would have held to Farrakhan's bizarre belief system, thus showing that not only is Farrakhan a joke, he has bastardized Christian history to suit his own nefarious agenda. The man is a fool. How dismaying to see all those faces in the audience grinning and praising him in agreement.
