Deitrick Haddon, the minister and gospel singer who will be back for a second season of "Preachers of L.A.," is speaking out about being demonized for his interpretation of The Holy Bible.
Haddon, 41, most recently came under fire during the "Preachers of L.A." reunion show where he explained why living with a significant other before marriage was not going against God's word. While his co-star Bishop Ron Gibson, senior pastor from the Riverside Calif., Life Church Of God In Christ, vehemently disagreed with Haddon on the reunion show, the latter defended his beliefs.
"You have to go according to your faith and what you believe," Haddon told Sister 2 Sister magazine recently. "If you don't like what I'm saying, you can go to the church up the street if you don't like what I'm saying, but don't demonize me because I'm not saying what you're saying. Don't call what I'm saying heresy. We're actually saying the same thing. It's crazy." more >>
