The “Preachers of L.A.” cast continue to floss their lavish lifestyles in front of a national audience with unabashed aplomb, unfazed by the legion of critics — both anonymous and famous — who have called them out for their ratchet pulpit behavior.
Even the likes of Bishop T.D. Jakes felt compelled to light up the cast of “Preachers of L.A.” during a scathing Sunday morning sermon in which he proclaimed that he was “not bling-blinging” and that he’s far from being a “shake and bake” preacher.
During this past week’s episode of “Arsenio Hall Show,” the ministers remained unrepentant, saying they are not going to “play ping pong” with the opinions of others.
“Anytime you’re moving into space that is uncharted you’re gonna have haters. Jesus had haters,” said Bishop Clarence McClendon. “I teach our people that the kingdom of God is a kingdom of relational influence. And anybody you refuse to relate to, you’ve also refused to influence.”
“When you start influencing people you’re going to get their opinions. And so, opinions come, opinions go, but I believe that we’re moving into an area where others are going to follow”
What do you think about the stance taken by the cast of the “Preachers of L.A.”? Does McClendon and the others have a point?
