Brother Jed, Sister Cindy, and Their Shenanigans in Speaker’s Circle

Mackenzie Mattix – MUTV 23 News Staff Writer

Speaker’s Circle was busy with MU students on Thursday and Friday as a crowd drew around the nationally renowned Methodist preachers, Brother Jed and his wife Sister Cindy.

The couple is known to make annual visits to college campuses around the country to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ in a rather radical way. Their tactics include very loudly proclaimed accusations, offensive signs and off the wall claims on sexuality and pre-marital relations.

Although Brother Jed and Sister Cindy appear crazy, Sister Cindy did admit in an interview that they aim to be dramatic and entertaining in order to capture the attention of students so they might plant the seed of truth. Ultimately, their goal is to help college students realize their sin and repent from it so they won’t “burn in the lake of fire”.

Most MU students were not thrilled with the approach that Brother Jed and Sister Cindy took with their message. Students objected with challenging questions, crude remarks, and a few protest signs of their own. The MU organization S.A.S.H.A., or the Skeptics, Atheists, Secular Humanists, and Agnostics, are present every year to provide answers to the students’ questions from an opposite point of view. The organization also played a game of BINGO with Brother Jed quotes in each of the spaces, with “You deserve Hell” being the center square in order to bring a sense of fun to the intense environment.

Many students said that they enjoyed watching Brother Jed yell and have people yell back all while Sister Cindy told stories of how she once was a “whore” in college. Although Brother Jed and Sister Cindy are on their way to the next college campus, MU students will look forward to next year’s show.
