NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - September 11, 2007) - On September 20th, 2007, TV talk show host and author of "Snakes in the Pulpit" Reuben Armstrong will appear live in Jena, Louisiana, to support what is known as the Jena 6 to March on the Jena, Louisiana Courthouse to demand Justice for Mychal Bell, one of the African-American teenagers awaiting sentence in the Jena 6 case.

Armstrong and his producers will arrive in Jena, Louisiana, on September 19th, 2007, to interview the family and the supporters of the Jena 6. According to a spokesperson for Reuben Armstrong, the show will broadcast live from Jena, Louisiana, and then broadcast in its entirety the same day @ 5:00 p.m. (CDT) on his website at and rebroadcast on September 21st and 22nd, 2007, at 12:00 p.m. CDT.

When speaking to Armstrong during a private news conference in his home, he explained to the news media and journalists that he feels that as a TV talk show host and author of "Snakes in the Pulpit," and the influences that God has blessed him with, that it is his obligation to stand for what he feels is right and wrong. Armstrong did go on record, saying: "We will march and support the Jena 6 until Mychal Bell receives a fair trial and a fair sentence if any, because the charges should be dismissed."

Armstrong's new book that is scheduled to be released on September 18th, 2007, has stirred up a lot of controversy with some of the Megachurches and the Megapastors. The book will discuss Megapastors and Megachurches such as Bishop Eddie Long, Joel Osteen, Bishop T.D. Jakes and Pastor Creflo Dollar.

Excerpt From the book "Snakes in the Pulpit":

"My challenge to churchgoers around the world is to be absolutely sure that God has called you to the church you attend. Good preaching and singing is not enough. Let the true spirit of God draw you there. Do not believe the hype, and later find out that TD Jakes, Creflo Dollar, Joel Osteen, Eddie Long or your church leader has mastered the art of preaching to you while needing someone to preach to them."
