Black Enterprise‘s Carolyn Brown reports that coming off the heels of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision on DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act), TV Land’s The Soul Man (starring Cedric “The Entertainer”) will tackle same-sex marriage and the church in tonight’s episode which airs at 11p.m. The Soul Man takes a lighthearted approach to addressing issues surrounding Christianity.
“The series The Soul Man follows a chart-topping R&B singer turned preacher named Reverend Boyce “The Voice” Ballantine (Cedric ‘The Entertainer’),” Brown writes. “In the episode “Bride and Prejudice,” Boyce’s old friend Gina (Toni Trucks) comes to visit asking that he marry her and her fiancé Drew (Paula Jai Parker). The reverend agrees, however, members of his congregation are not as accepting and he struggles to find balance between his personal feelings and religious attitudes.”
