Obnoxious Breaking News meets Everything Is Going Down, But The Word Of God……Well, another Christian Marriage has fallen a part. Grammy Award Winning Gospel Artist Israel Houghton and his wife Meleasa are calling it quits. According to a statement released by Houghton he admits to having cut out on his five five years ago. To what degree he had an indiscretion is not known. He did not address if this was just a a one time fling or if he maintained an affair with another woman for some period of time. Obnoxious Media is investigating to what degree did Israel cheat on Meleasa. Also if a child was born as a result of this sexual act.
Obviously while out on the road Houghton was knocking it down in between ministry appearances. Obnoxious Media is shocked and disappointed to learn that one of the last of the good guys is not so good after all. Seems that Christians especially those in ministry cannot handle success and marriage simultaneously. It is heartbreaking to face the harsh reality that you may not be able to have it all. Hopefully Tina and Teddy Campbell can be that example of how to overcome issues in marriage and still have a successful career in the Gospel Industry.
Why do you all think marriage and ministry does not work? Are men that claim to be devoted to God not able to be faithful? How can you lead others to Christ while holding hands with the Devil? These are a few questions we want you all to answer. God ordained family when he said it was not good for man to be alone, but these guys cannot keep “Peter in the gate!” Israel now joins a long list of men in ministry that in most accounts can be considered dogs like Jamal Harrasion Bryant (affair resulting in a bastard child), Marvin Winans, Jr. (affair resulting in bastard child), J Moss (affair resulting in bastard child), Wess Morgan (affair resulting in bastard child), Deitrick Haddon (affair resulting in bastard child), and the list goes on and on! I guess you all will say at least they are not gay. We will save that list for next time!
Below you can read Israel Houghton statement he posted on his Facebook page an hour ago below:
It is with a collective heavy heart that we announce that after over 20 years of marriage and a long separation, Meleasa and I are officially divorced. Several years ago I failed and sinned in my marriage. Though this is new to many, it is not new to us as we have been working through this for over 5 years. Although we tried, the challenges in our relationship have proven too much to overcome. We have always handled our family and ministry with grace and generosity toward others, discretion, and privacy. So, for the sake of our amazing kids, we are also handling this privately with pastoral oversight and assistance. We choose to remain friendly and kind to each other going forward. I am in the process of restoration and I have repented for my actions. Although I am sincerely sorry, and forgiven, I soberly realize that I will live with the consequences of my failings for the rest of my life. As this has become a public matter I want to apologize to the many who have supported my ministry through the years. I’m sorry for the many who will be hurt to learn of my personal failure. I regret any pain or disappointment that this news may cause you. We thank you for your prayers and for allowing us to handle this privately with those who are set over us in this process.
