(BLP) – Last weekend, a man wearing a “Jesus Saves” T-shirt was ordered to remove the clothing or leave Minnesota’s Mall of America.
The video of the exchange between the man and mall security has since gone viral.
Wearing a Jesus Saves shirt is not allowed in @mallofamerica. The Ghermezian family who owns the mall is from Iran and Minnesota has the largest Somali immigrant community in the nation. Is this legal @JonathanTurley @AlanDersh? pic.twitter.com/EK2eR0ZPRM

“If you want to shop here you need to take off that shirt,” the man, Paul Shoro, was told. After being swamped by security personnel.
In another clip, the same security guard is seen saying “Jesus is associated with religion and it is offending people. People have been offended.”
The truth is, any other message wouldn’t have been deemed offensive—even if it was. Only the Name of Jesus draws such opposition. The back of his shirt said, “Jesus is the only way.” This is the “offensive” truth the world so desperately needs to hear—Jesus saves souls from Hell.

The preacher claims he was at the mall to hand out gospel tracks, and that his presence at the Mall of America on January 7th was a request from God.
Shoro recounted the entire experience in the YouTube video below:
