New Oxygen reality television show Preachers of L.A. has been receiving a lot of attention but not necessarily for the right reasons. High ranking Bishop T.D. Jakes spoke about the show stating that he earned his wealth on his own dime, not on the dime of his parishioners.
We knew it was only a matter of time before the rogue of the Preachers of L.A., Deitrick Haddon himself, weighed in on the criticism. He called into radio station Praise 102.5 to shed a little light on the show. He says they received the response that they expected and that they “Calculated the stir”.
Of Bishop T.D. Jakes’ feedback, Haddon says:
“I have the absolute utmost respect for Bishop TD Jakes and what he represents. I considered him one of our generals in this generation. I was a bit taken back and shocked when I seen his view on the show, being that he’s a forefather in unorthodox, unconventional methods of spreading the Gospel, whether it be through MegaFest or partnering with comedians or Oprah or partnering with whoever he needed to partner with to reach beyond the church.”
Deitrick Haddon also called the show “Good clean television”. Uhhh… This remains to be seen.
