    Despite the controversy that gay marriage evokes with some of the Black community, “The Soul Man” on TV Land,  which features Cedric The Entertainer as an R&B artist turned pastor, decided to give the very newsworthy issue  a comic touch.

    On tonight’s episode, “Bride and Prejudice,” airing at 11 p.m., Rev. Boyce “The Voice” Ballentine must decide if he should risk his congregation’s ire by allowing a lesbian couple to be married in the church.

    “Of course it was a big issue this year, so we decided to go ahead and pick that up,” Cedric told the Tom Joyner Morning Show. “We just wanted to go ahead and attack it [from the point of view of] someone who’d been in the church, been there all their life and then decided she wanted to bring it back home.

    1. All have to say you have the right to be gay and married by mans law. As for the kingdom of heaven no way no how. The bible say: “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.”1 Corinthians 6:9-10 (NKJV)
      So its up to you but keep your ungodly ways out of God church’s. You don’t have to follow God’s rules and don’t be mad cause we don’t agree with your rules. Just know its not allow in Christianity, so don’t be mad God don’t except you under the rules we believe in. Rules or Rules!!!
      Note your action is not the only action God will not except in the kingdom of heaven. But stop trying to force Christians to change cause we are not. The laws of the Bible is for those who want to be Christians, and if you don’t want follow the Bible do you, but stop trying to change what we believe. Its already written in stone and laws of the Bible is what made this country a great nation! Trust me look at every other country and we are the only country God has protected from invasion but the changes we keep making will destroy us overtime! Read the Bible the proof is their! Rules or Rules!!!

    2. Not a big fan of someone who had an 11 year old fiance (Augustine of Hippo) at one time. . . .

      Thanks Cedric for being open enough to tackle something like this. . . at some point I hope we’ll all realize that 2 humans loving each other really isn’t a bad thing. . . and that gays and lesbians really are everywhere – they could be one of your family members – your favorite cousin or aunt or uncle, your best coworker, your hairstylist or barber, your mechanic, your favorite teacher, your favorite singer. . . but, because of the intolerance in the world, they keep it to themselves. . . . I made a very stupid comment to a really good friend/coworker one day and she came out to me. . . . I felt horrible, considering she’d been a Godsend at work. . . . it opened my eyes, gays & lesbians are everywhere and they deserve all the rights, respect, and love that straight folks get. . .

        So could drug dealers, drug users, rapist, pedophiles, liars, thieves…etc. What point are people trying to make when they use the bandwagon argument?

        • Being gay is not like being a drug dealer, or a criminal or anything which is anti social and violent in nature. Your analogy is incorrect and typical of someone with little education.
