Pope Francis was here last week. You would have had to be under a rock to not know that. He delighted tens of thousands of people crowded onto a thoroughfares in three major cities. He joyfully went off script delivering a folksy, funny commentary. All these things are similar to what TD Jakes, Joel Osteen andRick Warren do in their mega-churches.
The mega-pastors chimed their support of the 78-year-old pontiff. Unfortunately, their followers were none too happy.
The crowing began with people saw the posted picture of Rick Warren and Bishop TD Jakes attending the welcoming dinner.
Bishop TD Jakes posted:
A special thanks to President Obama for his VIP invitation to attend such a historical event. As the world watches this international figure move through our country, let’s pray that the Pope’s journey is safe! At a time when so little is said positive about faith in our country, let’s pray for his safe passage regardless of our differences of views about faith. It is our LOVE that’s on trial here and our understanding of the question; Who is my neighbor? By the way, my wife First Lady Serita Jakes and I, tried to represent our faith, church and country with dignity and respect!
