Part 1: Lamar Tyler of Black and Married with Kids talks about the controversial No Wedding, No Womb movement that is sweeping the internet. Is it a slap in the face to single mothers or just what we need to strengthen our families?
Part 2: Bishop Eddie Long, the well respected church leader being accused my multiple men of sexual coercion and misconduct has become the poster child for what many believe is wrong with the church. It’s been said our spiritual leaders have amassed way too much power, money and influence over their congregations. So much so, that in the case of Bishop Long, they believe they are (allegedly) above the law. God’s and man’s. While I don’t want to go into the specifics of the case, I do think this is an excellent opportunity to bring up another issues that has long been ignored in the church, espcially Black Churches. Homosexuality.
In this episode of Cocoa Mode with Shawna Renee, I asked my listeners a question that was initially posed by blogger Drew Shane of TheFreshXpress.com, “Do Black Churches live by the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell policy?”
