You Know What They Say About Preacher’s Kids.


The son of T.D. Jakes — the Dallas megachurch pastor who’s called homosexuality a “brokenness” and declared that he would never hire a sexually active gay person — was arrested in a gay sex sting in Kiest Park in January, according to Dallas police reports.

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.

T.D. Jakes is the founder of the Potters House, a 30,000-member church in South Dallas. A vocal opponent of same-sex marriage, he’s been criticized by HIV/AIDS activists for undermining prevention of the disease by stigmatizing homosexuality and drug use.

How much you wanna bet he emerges “cured” in 12 months?

    I would like to make a senseless argument for the promotion of homosexuality in churches to prevent male exhibitionists walking around parks with their penis out.

    This was actually written down…was it necessary? Was the detective that traumatized?

    I still remember this dude named Angel who did similar things while we were at summer camp when I was 12. So yes, that is traumatic to see.

    SMH…I feel like if I was the son of a pastor who was against homosexuality I would have sense enough to do my thang in private where none of my daddy’s thousand plus church members could see me. I wouldn’t be surprised if the family came out and said that Jermaine isn’t gay and just has a liking for sex acts in public.

    Maybe his behavior is do to him being troubled and not homosexual. Not all homeosexuals engage in public lewdness.

    Why is this grown man’s behavior being tied to his stepfather?

    @G.D. : My money is that Jakes “official” story will be….wait for it….HE WAS FRAMED (by the Man or the Devil, take your pick)!!!
    Details: He was either highly intoxicated/drunk, or he thought the people around him were females.

    Oh, didn’t you know? The devil/Man always works through the form of women and substance abuse.

    Steve- dude, I was wondering the exact same thing. That’s some late 80s, early 90s type stuff. At least it was in NYC. Hmm, maybe the 90s didn’t get to Dallas ’til now?
