When Luke Parker told producers of “The Bachelorette” that he was a born-again Christian who was saving sex for marriage, ABC knew they had the season’s villain.
Luke’s family tells me they are outraged over ABC’s campaign to portray the 24-year-old as an evil, pathological liar, misogynist and psychopath – simply because he follows the Bible’s teachings regarding sex and marriage.
Hannah Brown, the star of the show, gave Parker the heave-ho after an ugly argument with Luke over sex before marriage.
“I have had sex, and, like, Jesus still loves me,” she said on national television. “Guess what? Sex might be a sin out of marriage, pride is a sin, too, and I feel like this is a pride thing. I feel like I’ve finally gotten clarity on you and I do not want you to be my husband.”
Hannah seems to believe that she is the more authentic Christian because she’s tussled in the sheets a time or two or perhaps more. In today’s vernacular, she’s called a “woke Christian.”
The Parker family said Luke was led to believe that Hannah was a good church-going girl when in fact she was fornicating inside a windmill.
Mike Parker, Luke’s brother told me that ABC intentionally edited important segments of the show that indicated early on Ms. Brown shared the same beliefs about sex that his brother had.
“Leaving out those conversations makes Luke look judgmental and controlling when they talk about sex,” he said.
On Monday ABC will broadcast a “Men Tell All” special and the family tells me Luke is going to be skewered.
“They all bashed Luke for his faith and challenged his biblical view of Christianity,” Mike tells me. “Luke was asked about his view of a man’s position in a marriage and he said the man should be the spiritual leader of the home. He was booed and bashed by all the other contestants.”
He also said that Ms. Brown “tells Luke that he is the embodiment of toxic masculinity and that is who he is to the core.”
