Here’s your first look of the Preachers of Bling… I mean the Preachers of L.A., which will premiere on the Oxygen Network this fall.

According to the official description from the network which they are “thrilled” about, the series “stars a group of handsome men in LA who drive Bentleys, wear expensive clothes and jewelry, live in fancy homes, have tons of women (wives, girlfriends and baby mommas) AND some gang affiliation. It could be the perfect brew for an urban reality show about athletes or rappers, but.....it's about men of the cloth.  

I don’t think I need to say more. I think the description and the trailer below speak for themselves.

But personally, compared to this, I would rather have watched that reality series Oxygen was going to do about that rapper with his 10 kids and ten baby mamas, all living in the same house.

At least there was no hypocrisy there:

    I think this is going to be a great series and a GREAT idea!!!!! I think watching it will finally help people see the truth behind the bullshit and find out where their 10th really goes...lol...we are too religified...maybe this will hackney some of that and decrease the tricknology...People stopped believing in the wizard when they saw "the man behind the curtain" controlling the buttons...click ya heels people...click ya damn heels...

    Makes for great television. Weak-minded people find "value" in "the word" and reward "the pastor" as a result. Going to church here isn't about "God" or "faith," but community and entertainment.

    I agree with the first comment here. Notice the quotations. I think he is referring to what is being pushed as representing these ideals, but obviously, not the genuine thing. I, for one, do not attend church because I have yet to find a the church described in the bible. I don't follow a man, or men that think they're the way, the truth, and the light.

    ... And, slow-minded people talk out their ass before giving much to their words. To that point, if you didn't know "the word(s)", you should have asked someone before making a fool of yourself. Because in "the word" there are magnificent words of wisdom, knowledge and understanding of human behavior, which has absolutely NOTHING to do with the pastor. In fact, based on your narrow-minded thinking, I'd suggest YOU find someone to guide you through all 774,746 words in the Bible. Unless, of course, you desire to remain ignorant and talk about something you obviously know nothing about, just continue reading Sergio's wacked out posts.

    But mind you, everybody ain't feeling your mess.

    EXACTLY! There are nearly 300,000 Baptists churches in the United States, ALONE. The clowns in this "reality show" do not represent The Black Church nor the word.

    Shoulda named this "False Prophets".

    Yeah, what the world needs now...more bullsh!t Zealotropy.

    Wow. This is garbage. Didn't Jesus throw people like this OUT of the temple?

    Pimp pimp! Hooray! Religion is for suckas. and don't me that "i'm spiritual" crap either. You believe in sky daddy. My biggest frustration with these churches is that they don't pay tax. That's freakin ridiculous.

  • ALM | June 28, 2013 2:10 PMReply

    Lord, it's difficult for me to believe that that is the official description.

    This is sad.

    This is the type of thing that supports a lot of the pessimism that the public has with the church.

    There are good pastors out here, but many of the good ones are virtually unknown servants doing good work at small to medium sized churches.

    That's not the official description (sloppy reporting). It's from an article on the YBF (which does further down include excerpts from the actual description).

    See, this is one of those moments when I praise Jeezus that I'm not a Christian or religious in any way. (Which--being non-religious--is a hard thing to be as a black person in this country). What a sickening pile of crap, and unfortunately when I did attend church I came across too many preachers who were "balling" off the congregation's donations. Hopefully, humans soon will evolve past the need to worship some fake sky daddy and realize that these pastors (except for a small few) are just businessmen/women of the most parasitic variety. Smh.

  • Michelle | July 2, 2013 7:39 PM

    I feel you BEEZEDABLOCK...lol...i really feel you...I love it - "sky daddy"...gotta use that...unfortunately humans are too afraid to embrace the possibility that we just might be here alone...too much accountability with that concept...what? you mean that its all because of/dependent on...me...uh...yeah, it is...

    If you don't know the difference between liabilities and assets then you were probably blinded by all that shiny shit.

  • savagedarky@aol.com | June 28, 2013 10:58 AMReply

    Am I looking at true genuine wealth or a pile of debt? I think I'm looking at a pile of debt. I didn't see any assets, only liabilities.
