‘Preach’ Series Cancelled After Lifetime Received Petition From Christian Groups?
Lifetime’s latest reality series “Preach” is allegedly going to get cancelled after a petition from several religious organizations.
According to Cocoa Fab, “Preach” is Lifetime’s answer to hit series “Preachers of L.A.” and “Preachers of Detroit.” The new reality show will focus on the personal lives of four pastors in Ohio: Taketa Williams, Belinda Scott, Kelly Crews and Linda Roark.
It was mentioned that the series would mostly focus on Taketa Williams’ story aka “Beyonce of the Christian World.” In an interview, the pastor said that she’s actually delighted to be compared to Beyonce. She added that she can definitely see their similarities.
“When Beyonce performs, she just lets loose and thats how I am when I prophesy, preach or go forth with whatever God has called me to do. It comes out in a courageous way.”
Taketa Williams revealed that they were surprised when they found out that Lifetime wanted to do a series around them. She, however, was more than happy to spread the message of God, in whichever way she can.
“The show is geared towards anyone that needs help in any area of their lives,” she added.
However, not everyone is happy with “Preach.” Tachina Carter started a petition on Change.org calling for the network to cancel the series. She claimed that the depiction of women on the series was “misrepresenting the Church.” She also called the upcoming show a “travesty to the Christian community.” The petition has almost 15,000 signatures at the time of reporting.
