Nelly vs. Arkansas Ministers

Back in 2005, ministers from 20 churches teamed up to protest a Nelly show at Arkansas State University. "When we started seeing some of the vile and filthy lyrics ... we thought we should get involved," said Rev. Adrian Rodgers of the Fullness of Joy Church. "Tear the tickets up. Do not go and do not allow your children to go."
