    Oh poor queen!!!
    First, a Preachers is hard enough alone!
    2nd, her daddies homophobia has set him running into the woods,trolling for dick.
    Shame-shame-shame.

    T.D. Jakes is reprehensible, yes, but I do feel bad for his son. Obviously he doesn’t feel as though he can lead an openly gay lifestyle (understandably enough with his father and all) and is reduced to exposing himself to people in parks. Not that it’s an excuse, really, but… I just feel bad for him. Let’s not judge the son too harshly for the sins of his father.

  3. dctopman says

    While I’m pleased that T.D. Jakes can now understand that anyone can have a gay son, my heart goes out to his son. The son must have felt great shame that was surely instilled in him by a father who was truly lacking of the christian concept of understanding, acceptance and love for all mankind.

  4. TonyG says

    Call me crazy, but I DO have sympathy for the son. Imagine what his life’s been like, growing up with that father? I’m also not a fan of sex stings, unless they were toi catch someone like his father. For him, his life just got a lot harder. So, I sympathize.

    Good Work Jermaine !! from now on.. everything your fat daddy says about gays.. and God’s word and judgement against gays.. will carry the mental image of you.. standing in a public park wanking your cock. When Voltaire wrote, ‘ O Lord, make my enemies look ridiculous,’ he knew what he was talking about !

    I grew up in the South, in a family of preachers and churchgoers. It took me a long time to overcome the internal conflict I had going on, and an even longer time to tell my parents. In the meantime, I did a lot of risky, anonymous sex with other closeted guys.

    Hopefully, Jermaine will deal with himself and grow into a confident out man (if he is gay). And then he can help his father see gay people as people and a disease.

    Why are we laughing and thinking this is funny? Yes, the Bishop is anti-gay. But imagine the pain his son has gone through for years hearing the abuse and hate his father has thrown all over the place. And we applaud that this poor, conflicted guy gets arrested. If this were an “out and proud” gay man, most of you would be yelling that this was entrapment by the cops. Again, this is why our community as a whole struggles to get evangelicals to listen to us. Instead of people saying they hope that maybe, just maybe, this might calm Jakes down a little bit, we laugh at the son’s misfortune and embarrassment. Now some will say “there’s no hope for him” but come on, you’re the same people who were chanting for “Hope and Change” several months ago. There is always hope.

    Remember this, there will ALWAYS be haters. We will not change that. But us laughing at this is NO DIFFERENT than them laughing at us when we get arrested at an adult bookstore or a bathhouse gets raided. I don’t know about all of you but I’m going to be the bigger person and simply hope that this guy gets the help he needs to live his life the way he wants, regardless of his father’s beliefs.

    All the biggest homophobes seem to have gay children. Guess all the praying the gay away doesn’t work so well.

    The so-called “citizen complaints” of sexual activity that lead to these sting operations are always suspicious, however. This was happening at 10p.m. in a wooded area? Is the risk of harm to the public (an exposed penis late at night–gasp!) so great that two detectives had to arrest these guys, including Jakes. Aren’t there more serious crimes going on in TX?

  9. peterparker says

    My urge to laugh at the scenario of a homophobic preacher’s son being arrested for exposing himself to male officers is overridden by the suspicion that T.D. Jakes will claim that his son is innocent and was framed by cops or that he will claim to have cured his son of ‘the curse of homosexuality’ through the love of jeebus.

  10. Jodie says

    “Nowhere in the news report or the arrest report does it say that the detective with whom Jakes “interacted” was a man.”

    Look again. 2nd paragraph “According to the Dallas Voice”: “Senior Cpl. Janice Crowther, a DPD spokeswoman, confirmed Thursday, Feb. 12 that the detectives were both male.”

  11. says

    Thomasina, what report are you reading? The one I read says “Janice Crowther, a DPD spokeswoman, confirmed Thursday, Feb. 12 that the detectives were both male” and the headline is “Jermaine Jakes, arrested after approaching male officers in park, lists T.D. Jakes Ministries as his place of employment”

    What part of “male” does not refer to a man?

  12. Tyrone says

    What’s newsworthy about this? I didn’t read where the son’s spoken against homosexuals, only the dad.

    It’s be newsworthy if the pastor himself had been arrested in the sting. Am I the only one who realizes that the pastor and his son are two different people?

  13. says

    “Nowhere in the news report or the arrest report does it say that the detective with whom Jakes “interacted” was a man.”

    Um, yes it does: “Senior Cpl. Janice Crowther, a DPD spokeswoman, confirmed Thursday, Feb. 12 that the detectives were both male.” I think male implies that the detectives were men.

  14. Mike says

    I actually feel bad for the man, I can just imagine what it was like growing up in a house filled with hate, and, then to troll in a park and with the lurid details, no shame in his game? Its as if he wanted to get caught, most of those with this pent up self hate do, and, plus, its no secret that he has been cruising parks for years, he used to come to Oklahoma City and flounce around like Queen Ann.

    Now for the worst part, they are going to circle around him and pray the gay out, that is of course he does not find someone behind bars to satisfy him!

  15. mcQLA says

    Poor guy. Perhaps there is something to that theory that homosexuality is caused by a defective father figure…I wonder if anyone is going to demand that the Dallas PD provide copies of the “complaints” which led to this sting. Funnily enough, LAPD, which was notorious for such stings, was never able to provide evidence of even a single one of the many “complaints” they always insisted they were responding to.

    And, as we know, 10 p.m. is primetime for toddlers and young children in every park.

  16. olen says

    I have a BIG PROBLEM with the homophobic witch-hunt/sting operation. Poor guy. This police tactic is part of the systemic, institutionalized homophobia and shame that makes faggots go have sex in the bushes in the first place. I’m fucking sick of this goddamn country. People think it’s okay to have “gay sex stings?!??!?” It certainly is NOT. TEXAS IS ONE FUCKED UP STATE AND THE THINKING (and presidential material) THAT COMES OUT OF THAT PLACE IS HORRIBLE. Like the HIV-positive guy who got charged with murder for spitting on a cop. WTF? IF YOU’RE FROM TEXAS, DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT OR GET THE FUCK OUT. You’re really keeping the rest of us down.

  17. Brandon says

    Why are we so concerned with hitting all the “black Evangelicals where they live” and not all people who promote intolerance? When your cause is equality for all, you shouldn’t be weighted down in petty things like revenge. We have much more work to do, even within our own “community.” Sure, this is amusing, but it should call on our better instincts, rather than suck our teeth and be happy for what is another family’s shame and mortification.

  18. LADY2CNTX says

    The Bible states that homosexuality is an abomination. Why do all of you think that everyone ‘hates’ you because they read and believe the scripture. There will always be homosexuals and lesbians but if you believe in the WORD it’s clear and concise. I don’t care what they do because everyone has to die for their own sins.

  19. nic says

    yes, dereck washington, i’ve noticed that, too.

    @LADY@CNTX,

    you are why i find religion so enraging. your argument starts by begging the question: if we are to accept the premise that the “WORD” is indeed fact, then, you may have a leg to stand on. otherwise, my darlin’ you are sol. faith in an absent god is simply ‘faith’. do not confuse faith with fact.

  20. anon, anon says

    Why have you posted the son’s picture with his name? Do you have any record that HE has made hate speech against homosexuals? Are you going to start posting the names and pictures of the men in New York who are being arrested in the recent bookstore stings if someone in their family is a bigot?

    This seems like an incredible error in judgement on the part of towleroad.

    Hate the sinner, love the son.

  21. says

    “What’s going on with the posting system? I’ve noticed and had posts appear twice and disappear and the two different colors of the names…etc..

    Any body else notice this?”

    Unrelated to this thread, but the changes confused me, too. Seems like now there’s a “Next” button so comments can stretch to a next page? The orange names are people with homepages, I believe. You can’t click on people’s e-mails anymore, perhaps because of “stalking” issues? But maybe Andy has addressed this elsewhere?

  22. St. Theresa of Avila says

    Thomasina, apparently you can write but not read:
    Senior Cpl. Janice Crowther, a DPD spokeswoman, confirmed Thursday, Feb. 12 that the detectives were both male.

    Trust me, dad like a bit of it too. Delicious to see homophobia exposing itself for what it is: self-hatred.

  23. Jay B . says

    I have to say calling TD Jakes “homophobic” is unfair. I don’t agree with his stance on homosexuality, but he is definately not in the same scale of the sexually intolerant preachers. I mean seriously he’s gone on television several times stating he doesn’t agree with homosexuality but he recognizes the differences in opinion and holds no ill will. TD Jakes is probably one of the more tolerant and discouraging of discriminatory behavior towards LGBT people in the Christian community and to label him “homophobic” just isn’t fair. Though I don’t agree with some of his beliefs, he deserves a little more credit than this post affords him.

    This is a true story.
    There are a few people in Chicago Illinois that you should know about. These people are a BIG influence on America and their opinions are getting a lot of attention. Are their opinions right? No In fact they could be destroying America.
    These people are: Sherry Joe Alta Sims about 53 years black female about 5 feet 2 150 lbs. She is medium complexion and lives in Chicago Illinois. She went to Mercy High School later called Unity High School. The ladies at Unity were suppose to be better that everybody else, though they really were not. They call her Sherry Joe and she is held up higher than anyone in the world practically. She attracts many large corporations and rich black and white men in unbecomming ways.
    She seems to have an unbelieveable POWER over people and she believes that people won’t survive and will not be mentally healthy or stable. She studied psychology in a University and uses it to hurt people and get money from them and she illegally uses mental health centers. I just so happens that a lot of Sherry Joe’s relatives who are nice to her and talk to her often get/got brain anuerisms, brain tumors or developed severe mental problems. She feels everybody is and should be a mental patient and they should all get psychological help-when it is Sherry who needs the help herself. She is in Chicago or Illinois. She lives with a Thomas White her older boyfriend(63 years old) who buys her all the brand new cars and property and clothes that she wants, more than probably any female got from a man in the world(especially not being married to him). She has a son named Joshua Josef David White (17 years old)who following his mothers footstepts is suppose the be the best person and most highly looked up to in the world. And he never even helped anyone or gave them a compliment. People have said this from being around Sherry Joe Sims. They said they feel such stress from being around Sherry that they get severe headaches (even headaches when they think about her) and feel like they have such a mental block that the world is blocking them out. Sherry believes that people from Cabrini Green Housing Project, Harlem and other rough dangerous projects are upper class, cute with their crime, and leaders in the world for abusing people and criminally using people. Sherry Joe wants to be like Cabrini Green and all the projects and she fells their criminal image should run the world. They said they can’t think around Sherry Joe Sims and they feel like they are always being rushed to do things by her or her mother and father.They said they can’t relax in their seat around Sherry Joe Sims because she is always thinking of a crime to do on someone or them and her brain rushes in a race 24 hours a day with this crime and all Sherry Joe talks about or wants to hear about is crime. And they said this never ending rush for crime never stops. They have said that they get headaches so bad that they just keep bowing over and saying in their mind or to Sherry that Sherry Joe is better than them and so much more special special then their headache get only a little better. People who have been around her find theirself tell Sherry Joe that She is perfect and rarely has problems in her life like they do and they end up with a headache so bad until they tell Sherry Joe all their problems. They said she never helps them with their problems or has a kind word to make them feel better, but she goes and has drugs with her other friends and talks about them behind their back, laughing with her other friends at them and their problems they cried about. They said Sherry Joe had a heavy cigarette habbit that made them sick to watch her smoke and started to give them bad effects at the brain and lungs. They said Sherry started saying that a whole lot of people were mental patients and that they have a mental problem. They said this is her whole conversation-that everybody is a mental patient.They said she dosen’t talk about movies or fashion, or the news or anything else except supposedly mental patients and crime and doing drugs. Obviously Sherry Joe is making the world bad for herself and others and she is making people sick and mentally sick. Many people who have talked to her a lot and been around her have been known to have aneurisms at the brain and serious problems thinking and memorizing. Sherry obviously get kicks out of seeing people end up this way and it probably makes her feel more that she is better than every body else. Sherry’s mother Constance Connie Sims and her father Joe W. Sims never bothered to get help for theirself or Sherry’s problem. He father Joe W. Sims, especially, has been a BIG influence on the world in giving Sherry Joe a big name and reputation for her absurb psychology and criminal pratices.They say her boyfriend Thomas White is criminal minded hisself and buy her more gifts for doing crime and tells her she is so much. Sherry also has a son named Joshua Josef David White. He is following her path and needs to be helped and stopped also.

    Another is Carrol O’Neal about 50 years old dark skinned black female. O’Neal is her maiden name but she might go under the named she married under.She is in Chicago or Illinois. She also has a big influence on America and big corporations and governments. She believes people DON’T know and that they all need to LEARN. She is recently divorced and might use her married name. Supposedly she was married to a policeman in Chicago who is still protecting Carrol O’Neal’s wrongdoings and covering up her crimes. He is wrong for doing that too. She got their huge brick house at the divorce and probably child support and alimony too. She believes that only she and all computer programmers KNOW it all. She believes she is the most ORGANIZED and that others have no idea. She believes people are full of excuses for each other. She calls every one else in the world SLOW and she says they cannot think but only she can and that she KNOWS. She feels people NEED to KNOW, because they don’t know. She is a Computer Programmer (though not very astute at it). She is said to have a bad ATTITUDE and it rubs off on others. She believes nobody KNOWS more than computer programmers. Of course she is wrong. Some people recall that being around Carrol O’Neal is a real headache. They begin to get very slow at the mind, brain dead, tired, out of breath, and incompetent. They said they begin to feel down about their self and the world and they fell like they can’t accomplish anything especially after she starts calling you ignorant and telling you that you DON’T KNOW and NEED TO LEARN. She tells people they don’t pay attention. Then Carrol starts to say she is better and that she dresses better and has more and knows more and wants the world to continue to look up to her. She feels she is better than others just because she did he laundry at the laundry matt when she was a teenager and because she had a leather coat to wear to school. Carrol is known to create problems with other people and destroy their relationships (marriages and dating). She has gotten many people fired from their job they say.

    American lets correct these people at the end of 2008 and in 2009. Let’s aim to go up above them to strive for higher goals that their level of life. Their views should not control the quality of our lives. Lets get them down and correct these wrong attitudes. Let’s not let their obscure psychology ruin America. Lets stop the corrupt mental terriorism of these and other people working with them. If people were using psychology to benefit the people advantageously they would have many websites to give free advice family counseling, relationship counseling and help to answer many peoples questions. They would be positive and not give people headaches. Even ask Ann Landers did better with her advice column in Chicago. She did not try to destroy peoples thinking and brains and and try to make them hurt each other and cause abuse. This is destructive psychology at it’s worst. What if the tax man tried to destroy peoples tax return and try to make everybody owe the IRS money? No tax men don’t do this. But why are these people who studied psychology and randomly use it try to destroy and insult others with it? Let’s put a halt to Sherry Joe Sims, Carrol O’Neal and other people like them who are looked up to so highy with bizzare destructive ATTITUDES-using psychology as their basis. The basis in America is complimentary improvement and empowerment not mental destruction of America.
    America needs to be at its best and mind healthy and a good attitude.
    Please keep my name confidential. I love America and don’t want to see it destroyed by these people and their high paced, upscale, overly persuasive wrong views and mental destruction and teriorism. That’s BAD PROGRAMMING. We should only sound like simple everyday cool people and not terriorizing people with abusive psychological and social terminology that insults nice Christian people and gives them bad labels in their life.Is it the Universities that are teaching abusive psychology? If so lets stop the Universities from doing this. If they can not teach people to use it positively they do not need to teach it at all. Then they form gangs doing mental abuse and terriorism. Psychology dosen’t run the U.S. government and it dosen’t run the Federal Reserve Bank. Let’s cut their POWER off America! These people need correction theirselves.

She also has a big influence on America and big corporations and governments. She believes people DON’T know and that they all need to LEARN. She is recently divorced and might use her married name. Supposedly she was married to a policeman in Chicago who is still protecting Carrol O’Neal’s wrongdoings and covering up her crimes. He is wrong for doing that too. She got their huge brick house at the divorce and probably child support and alimony too. She believes that only she and all computer programmers KNOW it all. She believes she is the most ORGANIZED and that others have no idea. She believes people are full of excuses for each other. She calls every one else in the world SLOW and she says they cannot think but only she can and that she KNOWS. She feels people NEED to KNOW, because they don’t know. She is a Computer Programmer (though not very astute at it). She is said to have a bad ATTITUDE and it rubs off on others. She believes nobody KNOWS more than computer programmers. Of course she is wrong. Some people recall that being around Carrol O’Neal is a real headache. They begin to get very slow at the mind, brain dead, tired, out of breath, and incompetent. They said they begin to feel down about their self and the world and they fell like they can’t accomplish anything especially after she starts calling you ignorant and telling you that you DON’T KNOW and NEED TO LEARN. She tells people they don’t pay attention. Then Carrol starts to say she is better and that she dresses better and has more and knows more and wants the world to continue to look up to her. She feels she is better than others just because she did he laundry at the laundry matt when she was a teenager and because she had a leather coat to wear to school. Carrol is known to create problems with other people and destroy their relationships (marriages and dating). She has gotten many people fired from their job they say.

    American lets correct these people at the end of 2008 and in 2009. Let’s aim to go up above them to strive for higher goals that their level of life. Their views should not control the quality of our lives. Lets get them down and correct these wrong attitudes. Let’s not let their obscure psychology ruin America. Lets stop the corrupt mental terriorism of these and other people working with them. If people were using psychology to benefit the people advantageously they would have many websites to give free advice family counseling, relationship counseling and help to answer many peoples questions. They would be positive and not give people headaches. Even ask Ann Landers did better with her advice column in Chicago. She did not try to destroy peoples thinking and brains and and try to make them hurt each other and cause abuse. This is destructive psychology at it’s worst. What if the tax man tried to destroy peoples tax return and try to make everybody owe the IRS money? No tax men don’t do this. But why are these people who studied psychology and randomly use it try to destroy and insult others with it? Let’s put a halt to Sherry Joe Sims, Carrol O’Neal and other people like them who are looked up to so highy with bizzare destructive ATTITUDES-using psychology as their basis. The basis in America is complimentary improvement and empowerment not mental destruction of America.
    America needs to be at its best and mind healthy and a good attitude.
    Please keep my name confidential. I love America and don’t want to see it destroyed by these people and their high paced, upscale, overly persuasive wrong views and mental destruction and teriorism. That’s BAD PROGRAMMING. We should only sound like simple everyday cool people and not terriorizing people with abusive psychological and social terminology that insults nice Christian people and gives them bad labels in their life.Is it the Universities that are teaching abusive psychology? If so lets stop the Universities from doing this. If they can not teach people to use it positively they do not need to teach it at all. Then they form gangs doing mental abuse and terriorism. Psychology dosen’t run the U.S. government and it dosen’t run the Federal Reserve Bank. Let’s cut their POWER off America! These people need correction theirselves.

    Wow, this is one the saddest stories ever told.

    The pain this man has most likely been living in is now amplified by having his pain all over the media.

    He probably had get up in front of dad’s mega-flock and have some sort tearful repentance in exchange for their “tolerance”.

    Not saying public exposure is appropriate, but seriously – the joggers could really see? And how is somebody who’s in the closet feels comfortable enough with undercovers that he whips it out and starts to stroke?

    I’ve cruised a few parks and met some hot guys, can’t say I’ve stroked it then and there, but I guess that’s because I my own place that isn’t patroled by christianistas – maybe I’d look for relief in bushes too.

    Let’s show this guy some understanding,its not like he was selling ice cream pops to kids and exposing himself… he’s jerking it in some bushes – hopefully juniper that still has leaves, but come on – how many cruise spots are really THAT out in the open? Anybody ever been to the Keist cruise before that could give us idea?

    The man was trying to score with some hot dudes who probably looked as hot as most undercovers do… my question – did any of the undercovers sport wood through their denim? If so, I’d probably follow them into the woods and take out what they were looking at too?

    Perhaps George Michael can sing a gospel hym version of Outside at the mega church and patch things up?

  28. mm says

    I have never known Bishop Jakes to put anyone down. He always preached to the needs of the people of God.
    Remember that his son is an adult and have to deal with the consequences on his own – and only he will do the time for the crime. I am a preachers daughter too and have made many mistakes, but people have to realize that pastor children are not perfect, therefore, the pastor cannot stop there – they have to continue with the gospel. Yes, it hurt to see your children go down the wrong road after all of the teaching and training you have give them, but life goes on and Bishop continue to be encouraged.
    I am praying for you, you family, and son. May God continue to bless you.

  29. Lavett says

    this is crazy the ministers son’s actions have nothing 2 do with his father..we all have people in our families struggling with somthing..just b cause minister Jakes believe what the Bible says only shows that he stands firm on what God says 2 him…has nothing 2 do with the love he has 4 his son or fam…reality our children ll do things other than what we taught them…I dont understand the attack on him or his son we are all human and fall short of the Glory of God.keep hope alive we learn and hopefully grow from our actions…I’m sure that God has a plan to show minister Jakes how 2 handle the situation

  30. Cher says

    This just goes to show that we all have sinned and come short of the glory of GOD!! How dare some of you call a Great Man of GOD those names!!!

    I will continue to pray for your family Bishop TD Jakes. Your son has been reared in the christian faith so we know that GOD will get the glory out of his life and all of the demons of hell will see it.

    So satan laugh all you want to right now but the last laugh is on YOU!!!!

  31. says

    I wonder if the good bishop hasn’t known all along and his virulent preaching isn’t, wasn’t, his way of telling his own son that he’d better not ever let the world, or him, know for certain.
    I knew a man who’s father wrote numerous letters speaking out against gay rights and “deviant lifestyles” to the editor of the local paper. He was silenced when his son was savagely beaten to death by a hustler who’s services the son had been procuring for years.

  32. Ahn says

    he trotted out his daughters fancy wedding….it may not even be based on any authentic relationship…and he forced his son into the closet with his hate.

    Honestly, td is swine..and his movies should be boycotted. he has gotten FAT and happy and is a bigot with our assistance.

  33. Larry says

    You might just want to think twice about judging one of God’s people. Touch not my anointed.T.D. Jake’s Son is making his own choices. Evidently not very good ones.

  34. shirl says

    homosexuality is a brokeness. All sins are. What you some of you all are doing is unfair to the Bishop because he feels the way he does and he has thr right to feel anyway he wishes. Come on people get it together.

  35. JVKL says

    Latricia,

    Your god is not real. ‘He’ does not do everything for a reason.

    MM,

    No one falls short to the glory of your
    imaginary friend. Your children might go down the ‘wrong’road and you teach them to learn from their mistakes but you do not train them. Jakes puts everyone down who does not agree with his bigotry. He preaches to deluded fools who call themselves ‘children of God’ , more like the children of mental illness.

  36. JVKL says

    Larry,

    I have the right to judge this bigoted fool.
    J.D.’s son has the right to make his choices. Evidently some poor ones like you do which includes being a delusional idiot!
    Jakes isn’t anoited or a person of God.

  37. JVKL says

    Why are these Christianite weirdos commenting on a gay blog? No one wants to listen to fairy-tale pushers preach. You can find plenty of others websites to do this. Jake’s stepson has the right to be gay and can be in a romantically and sexually active relationship with another man and hold any religious beliefs he wants.
    Hopefully he’ll never speak to his family again.

  38. JVKL says

    I really don’t see why it is any of Jake’s business or any other religious person’s business what two consenting adults do with each other sexually in private. Jakes and other Christianite dummies that troll this website are a bunch of sexually repressed perverts.

  39. JVKL says

    I wonder how Jakes’ feels about stoning
    disobedient children and non-virgin brides as well as those who collect sticks on the Sabbath to death? How about the owning of slaves? Punishing heterosexual women who speak up in church or have sex while on their periods, men who shave their beards, people who eat shellfish, wear tattoos and mixed-fabrics, touch the skin of a dead pig or plant two different crops in the same hole , call their mothers ‘women’ and refer to non-Jews as ‘dogs’ like Jesus or hate their loved ones in order to be one of Jesus’ followers like he commanded? They don’t which makes them hypocritical cherry-pickers.

  40. Mary Dominigue says

    Two men or two women in a romantically and sexually active relationship with each other or a transgendered male or transgendered female pursuing and carrying out a gender reassignment change are normal, natural, healthy , safe and harmless reactions to thei inborn, innate and unchangeable, noraml , natural, healthy, moral and safe sexual orientations or gender identities.

  41. Icebloo says

    Of course the preacher idiot will say his son is not gay. He will say he was tempted by evil and claim he can be cured through prayer.

    These fu#ked up religions need to go. They are embarrassing and dangerous to our country !

  42. Jerry6 says

    I grew up with a homophobic Father and feared what would happen to me if he ever found out what I really was. That is, until I accidentally met his “Lover”, of over 15 years, when I was 22. I pitied him for the rest of his life.

  43. Henry says

    Oh, I love the first few posts!….and I love that this is being exposed! Why the F***K this isn’t on CNN, Fixed Noise, or the news outlets that SAY they expose the truth, I can’t figure it out.

  44. Jose says

    The anti-gay Christians are the ones who protest LGBT people the most and they are the ones who are secretly LGBT.

    Remember boys and girls, when some nut job starts ranting and raving about how bad LGBT people are all you have to do is look at them and say, so what have you done?

  45. Barb Ann says

    We should be praying for this family and all who can not come out because of the minds of so many. God calls gay abomination, more than sin. Thank about what God thinks of guys. What we think is not important

  46. John Conolley says

    A word of advice for people who like to swing in public parks: You won’t meet anyone after dark but cops. If the sun goes down, go on home. Just before sundown is a good time, though.

  47. Hagatha says

    I have no sympathy or patience with gay people who troll public parks and outdoor areas. You are stupid people. You have the technology to make all the seedy connections you can handle. You do this stranger in the park thing out of some kind of stupid excitement game. In the process you embarrass the gay community. Do you think that straight people don’t know about rest areas and cruisy parks? My mother told me that men used to cruise the city park back in the 1940’s and everyone knew who they were.

    Just grow the fug up. Otay, Buckwheat?

  48. thankthesnake says

    I could not help but laugh out loud as I read this post. But there is a deep and unfortunate issue highlighted here. TD Jakes son is a gay man trapped in a living hell of sexual repression, shame and self denial. Forced to live a secret and potentially destructive existance. Torn by the zealous hate of a sick religion that masquerades as love.

    The poor man is a sexual zombie. An emotional wreck. A walking suicide. And TD Jakes is going to use this incident to push his agenda of homosexual hate and psychological destruction even harder. I can only hope that Jermaine Jakes can break away from his father’s influence and come out of his dark and hurtful closet.

  49. Zeta says

    T. D. Jakes happily took money from George Bush Jr. He’s as much a prosperity gospel fraud as ‘Prophetess’ Juanita Bynum. I really wish people would look more closely into how the mega-pastors actually shepherd in their private life, instead of being happy with the endorphin hit that comes with listening to great singing.

  50. Zeta says

    @Mike, I’d agree with you about the witch hunts — except that parking in public parks, pulling your pants down, and masturbating with your wang out is not acceptable. the police aren’t cracking down on lovers or folks minding their own business, they’re cracking down on exhibitionists and other people who engage in in appropriate sexual displays in public places.

    I have to agree with the police on this one: that IS something which needs to be cracked down on. If some gay men truly believe self-control is optional — or worse, yet, an affront to request — then those gay men need to buy a private place in the city or out in the country where they can put up some trees, park, lounge, and masturbate in front of each other while looking for unsafe sex, until their heart is content.

    But don’t do it in a public place.

  51. Nelson says

    I agree with those who feel badly that the son has to hide from his hateful father’s wrath. This is why gay people with religious crazies for parents should simply disown the bastards and get on with their lives, creating their own families.
