Thank you Pastor Bryan Loritts of Fellowship Memphis for calling a spade a spade. In this video clip he comments on the ridiculous blogosphere response of some African American ministers who protested the appearance of TD Jakes in The Elephant Room. Granted that Rev. Jakes has some controversial theological views (one of which he reaffirmed his reversal while making his appearance), but the amount of vitriol thrown Jakes way by some was ridiculous and quite frankly bordered on sin. Newsflash to the haters – we all have some theological heresy in our belief system because theology (the study of God) is a human endeavor. I applaud both James MacDonald to not bowing to the pressure and Bryan for calling people out who needed to be called out.
