Jed Smock, of Campus Ministries USA, returned to Texas Tech for the sixth consecutive year this week. On my way to another story, I decided to divert and cover this local “celebrity” — one who faces an unusual mix of scorn and praise.
Crowds of dozens have gathered around Jed and supporters at times, and his cries of “Whore!” and allegations of homosexuality and promiscuity are rather signature. Just saying “Brother Jed” usually gets a rather broad spectrum of reactions.
