Black women have apparently abandoned Bishop TD Jakes' megachurch after he said they are too independent and trying to be men.

In a Father's Day sermon, Bishop Jakes told his parishioners that we are losing the Black family because women no longer value their own femininity.

"Your self-esteem is compromised when you have to ask your wife for lunch money," he said. "This breaks all sociological orders of the culture we're living in now."

"Because we are raising up women to be men! And you are not applauded for your femininity. You are applauded in the contemporary society by how tough, rough, nasty, mean, aggressive, hateful, possessive you are. And you're climbing the corporate ladder, but we are losing our families!"

Since then there are many empty seats in Jakes's church on Sundays, according to MTO News.

In the images, obtained by MTO News, entire sections of the church were completely empty. Producers of TD Jakes' livestream apparently moved the congregation into a single section to make the church appear to be full.

Clutch your pearls, ladies: Drake is off the market. Hip-Hop's most eligible bachelor was spotted on board a yacht with a mystery woman in Saint-Tropez on Tuesday.

The Canadian rapper and the mystery woman arrived for lunch at Club 55 while vacationing in the French Riviera.

Earlier I told you that actor Jay Ellis turned off the comments under his wedding photos on Instagram, to avoid criticism about his interracial marriage to Nina Senicar.

Already the hate is spilling all over Drake's social media timelines. Black women are outraged that eligible men are dating outside their race.

Bishop TD Jakes explained why in a Father's Day sermon.

He said:

"We are raising up women to be men! And you are not applauded for your femininity. You are applauded in the contemporary society by how tough, rough, nasty, mean, aggressive, hateful, possessive you are. And you're climbing the corporate ladder, but we are losing our families!"

Bishop TD Jakes tackled a controversial subject in today's society where boys and girls are being taught in schools to reject gender roles.

In a Father's Day sermon, Bishop Jakes told his parishioners that we are losing the Black family because women no longer value their own femininity.

Black men are praised and rewarded for rejecting their masculinity and embracing femininity.

"This breaks all sociological orders of the culture we're living in now," Bishop Jakes said.

"Because we are raising up women to be men! And you are not applauded for your femininity. You are applauded in the contemporary society by how tough, rough, nasty, mean, aggressive, hateful, possessive you are. And you're climbing the corporate ladder, but we are losing our families!"

Bisho Jakes continued:

"We were not designed to receive from women. Your self-esteem is compromised when you have to ask your wife for lunch money... I know you can buy your own car; I know you can buy your own house, but until you create a need that I can pour into, I have no place in your life. So stop coming home bragging to me about how much you don't need me, and wonder why I shy away."

One YouTube viewer wrote in the comments:

"What about the men that LEAVE the house and create the broken home? The woman at that point have no choice but to fill both roles the best way she can. But you not gonna talk about that. Cause why hold men accountable?"

Brother Jakes would probably tell her that a man leaves when his home life becomes intolerable.

Pastor Deitrick Haddon, star of Oxygen Network's breakout TV hit, Preachers of LA, says he is shocked at the harsh criticism from fellow man of the cloth, TD Jakes.

Bishop T.D. Jakes slammed the hit reality show during a blistering sermon at his Potter's House mega-church in Dallas last weekend. Jakes denounced the ministers for glorifying their materialistic lifestyle on TV.
