Philadelphia Flash Mobs and Mayor Nutter's Sunday Sermon

Sunday's sermon at Mount Carmel Baptist Church, in West Philadelphia was a 30 minute emotionally packed message from Mayor Nutter regarding the flash mobs popping up in Center City. Nutter emphasized that it's a very small percentage of the city's youth who bring a bad name to the rest.

"This nonsense must stop. If you're going to act like a butthead, your butt is going to get locked up," he said.

He homed in on absentee fathers and said that those who send money and don't parent are just a "human ATM," and he said that those who don't even give the money are just "a sperm donor."

Mayor Nutter quotes:
"You've damaged yourself, you've damaged another person, you've damaged your peers and, quite honestly, you've damaged your own race."

"If you want . . . anybody else to respect you and not be afraid when they see you walking down the street, then leave the innocent people who are walking down the street minding their own damn business. Leave them alone."

Nutter said later that "even the choir likes a good sermon," and he hoped that those who heard him would share his message with friends, neighbors and children.

"This nonsense must stop. If you're going to act like a butthead, your butt is going to get locked up," he said.

"That's part of the problem in our community," he said. "Let me speak plainer: That's part of the problem in the black community . . . we have too many men making too many babies they don't want to take care of and then we end up dealing with your children."

Nutter urged all teens to take themselves more seriously if they ever want to find a job.

"Take those doggone hoodies down, especially in the summer," he said. "Pull your pants up and buy a belt because no one wants to see your underwear or the crack of your butt."
