Anti-Gay Televangelist T.D. Jakes' Son Busted For Public Gay Sex

T.D. Jakes' megachurch draws 30,000+ worshippers weekly and in 2001, TIME called him "the next Billy Graham" despite his famous "prosperity" style of preaching which advises that God wants you to enjoy a luxurious lifestyle. The flashy Dallas-based televangelist regularly rails against the evils of homosexuality and same-sex marriage on his television shows, calling us a "broken" people. And yesterday his son was arrested for public sex in a Dallas park.
Jermaine Donnell Jakes, 29, faces a charge of indecent exposure after allegedly exposing himself in front of two undercover vice detectives shortly after 10 p.m. on Jan. 3. Senior Cpl. Janice Crowther, a DPD spokeswoman, confirmed Thursday, Feb. 12 that the detectives were both male. According to an arrest affidavit, the detectives were conducting an investigation into citizen complaints of sexual activity when they observed Jakes and several other unknown males park their vehicles in the lot east of the park at 2106 W. Kiest Blvd. The detectives followed Jakes into a wooded area, where he approached them with his penis exposed through his unzipped pants, the affidavit states. Jakes masturbated for several seconds while making eye contact with one of the detectives. Jakes made no attempt to conceal his penis despite people walking and jogging on a trail nearby, the affidavit states. According to court records, Jermaine Jakes listed his place of employment as T.D. Jakes Ministries. Jakes was released at the scene after being detained.
If Jermaine Jakes is "broken", we all know who broke him. Always, always, always - behind these public haters is the sad personal story of one of our own, either the hater himself or somebody close to him. No schadenfreude for T.D. Jakes here, just pity for his son.
