The '70s was the height of single parenthood.  Jesse understood full well the power of music, songs, entertainment, especially over young people, particularly those too young to wind up being parents.

It is a VERY beautiful song.  It would have been nice for him to 'qualify' it with some reference to being ADULTS and/or married.

BUT, it's Art.  I guess that would be like asking Picasso to re-arrange the images on his portraits or to go back draw clothes on his nude sketches.

Understood, but Messy Jesse was out doing the same thing.  I think his lifestyle just caught up with him.

Yeah, but like his choice or not, he was an adult financially able to take care of a child. 

He wasn't 16, still immature and still in school, with no financial means to support a child.

Jesse was probably concerned about the song's influence on teenagers, and young people not prepared to be parents.

but Jesse was speaking as a Reverend and community leader....he put his character forward in this incident and is being judged accordingly

  I agree.   And what a model for his son junior.  We will never know how many women Jesse paid off to stay quiet.  No one is perfect!  People are human beings.  So when you see folks throwing stones, know they haven't looked in the mirror one time at their own imperfections and have PLENTY to hide.  And so my question is always...WHO THE FOCK ARE YOU?  Stay.  In.  Your.  Lane.  This is the greatest advice I have ever gotten growing up.  And you know?  It works.  But!
