After a firestorm of criticism based on a headline he says was manipulated by Christian and secular media, TD Jakes is outlining exactly what he believes about same-sex marriage and the issues surrounding it.
The controversy started after a HuffPo TV interview with Marc Hill that lead to news headlines suggesting the megachurch pastor’s position in LGBT views is “evolving.”
I spoke with Regina Lewis, Chief Communications Officer of The Potter’s House in Dallas, who offered me an in-depth statement from Jakes that should put an end to the questioning. Jakes statement follows in full:
Although the vast majority of people seemed to understand my previous post on this subject, a few seemed to question what was in their view a veil of ambiguity on the same-sex marriage statement.
I realize that there are those that will never be satisfied. But in good faith that these residual critics might have missed my true intent I provide additional clarity here.
A lot has been made of a brief interview that I conducted with HuffPo TV Live’s Marc Lamont Hill on Monday, August 3 to promote my latest book, Destiny.
After dialoging on the book, the interviewer asked a question, one of several pulled from the blogosphere about whether the “black church” and LGBT community could co-exist.
