What, again?...Is the Christian megachurch lifestyle showing us yet another unhappy instance of repression and misery with the arrest of Reverend T. D. Jakes' son last week in a Dallas park, charged with indecent exposure? Whether he's gay or not, won't therapy and the 3 R's (repentance, recanting and rehab) await Jermaine Jakes in Dallas? Finding those gaping chinks in the Christian fundamentalist armour is no longer as dramatic as it has been in recent years. We've seen this all before and should accept it matter-of-factly as sadly trite.
