Double Edge Music Podcast Host: Troy Isaacs
Pastor Jamal Bryant’s mother was upset when she heard the Baltimore megachurch leader joke about believing in open marriages on his new daytime talk show “The Preachers.” “My mother called me ‘Sleepless in Seattle’ trying to figure out, ‘what did I mean laughing about open marriages. God is not pleased,'” Bryant of Empowerment Temple AME Church, recalled on his show this week.
“So I’m not talking to the millions of y’all watching. Dear mama, please know that I still believe marriage is between two people and what God has brought together let nobody put asunder.” Bryant joked about believing in open marriage when actress Mo’Nique and her husband, Sidney Hicks, revealed duirng a segment last week that they both have had sex with other people during their 10-year marriage and will continue to do so. As a divorced pastor who has publicly opened up about his struggles with infidelities and temptation, Bryant made light of the topic. “I think that’s amazing and a lot of people think that is novel and y’all ‘church people’ are going to have a heart attack,” Bryant said with a laugh on the show last week. “I believed in open marriage, I just forgot to tell my ex-wife about it.” Bryant co-hosts “The Preachers” alongside E. Dewey Smith Jr., the senior pastor of The House of Hope churches in Atlanta and Macon, Georgia; John Gray, an associate pastor of Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas; and Orrick Quick, pastor and founder of God Seekers Church in High Point, North Carolina.
