Skip to comments.Are Most ‘Preachers’ Daughters’ Hot-to-Trot Lolitas?
Posted on 03/12/2013 11:53:50 AM PDT by CHRISTIAN DIARIST
So I was looking over the wifes shoulder while she was watching Project Runway on Lifetime TV. During a commercial break, Lifetime aired a promo for a new show that debuts tonight.
The promo begins with the familiar Aretha Franklin tune, I Say a Little Prayer, playing in the background.
A young woman, looking like she works for some sort of escort service, is getting dressed. She oh-so-sexily applies her lipstick and mascara before teasingly stroking her hair.
She surveys a rack of clothes before deciding upon a dress that looks very much like lingerie. She puts on a pair of suede high heeled pumps then walks down a flight of stairs (in slow motion, of course).
I thought the promo was for some spin-off of The Client List, the Lifetime series starring Jennifer Love Hewitt as a lovable housewife-next-door turned high-priced escort.
But, in fact, it was for a new Lifetime reality show Preachers Daughters that most Christians, I suspect, will find offensive. Not the least because it promises viewers that the series will raise some hell.
Preachers Daughters features three families, headed by pastors, with teen-age daughters. Each episode, according to Lifetime, offers a hard-hitting but often humorous look at the lives of these pastors daughters as they balance the temptations every teen-ager faces with their parents strict expectations and code of conduct as influenced by their faith.
Of course, the problem with putative reality shows is that they present a decidedly distorted picture of reality. And so it is with Preachers Daughters.
Olivia, the 18-year-old daughter of Mark Perry, pastor of Everyday Church in Oceano, California, spent her high school years partying hard, abusing drugs and alcohol. She got pregnant and, so promiscuous was she, she didnt even know who her babys father was.
Taylor, the teen-aged daughter of Ken Coleman, pastor of City of Refuge Pentecostal Church in Lockport, Illinois, rebels against the rules set down by her dad, sneaking out of the house, kissing boys and yielding to temptation. Taylor says my alter ego kind of wants to be a porn star.
Then theres Kolby, the 16-year-old daughter of Nikita Koloff, a former professional wrestler who makes the familys home in Spring Hill, Tennessee but is now a traveling evangelist. Kolbys mom Victoria, who is divorced from her dad Nikita, happens to be a preacher herself, hosting a faith-based radio program. Teen-aged Kolby complains that before every guy she dates, my mom has to interrogate him.
God made the world in seven days, says Lifetimes promo for Preachers Daughters. Moses parted the Red Sea. But if these preachers can control their teen-age daughters, it would really be a miracle.
Well, I know that there are some teen-aged pastors daughters that drink, that abuse drugs, that are unwed moms. I imagine there are a few here and there that get caught up in the sex business, perhaps even becoming porn stars. And I accept that there may be a few reared in broken homes, where dad and mom, both pastors, are divorced.
But thats not the reality of most preachers daughters. In fact, most are well-adjusted. Most are respectful of their parents. And most take seriously their Christian walk.
I know this not only from following the activities of Christian youth, including PKs (preachers kids), but also from first-hand experience. Because I grew up with two God-loving, self-respecting sisters who are preachers daughters.
“The promo begins with the familiar Aretha Franklin tune, I Say a Little Prayer, playing in the background.”
Gee, I’ve missed so much since I gave up TV in ‘97.
Then again, what has been seen can not be unseen.
She’s only 16? OMG!
I gave up watching all of the various “Law & Order” series when they did an episode on honor killings and the perpetrator was a Christian Fundamentalist. 99.999% of the honor killings in the world are done by Muslims, but Dick Wolf decided to go in a different direction.
I think this was the plotline of “Footloose” (30 years ago)
The show’s tagline should be “If their father was muslim, these whores would be dead already.” Let’s see how “edgy” Lifetime is willing to be.
Every preachers daughter I ever met was willing and able to stray.
I’m offended. When does the beheading begin?
I seriously question the judgement of the “pastors” that have allowed their families to be exploited as examples of wayward daughters. Just the fact that they are willing to be paid for this explains in part why their daughters like to act out.
“EVANGELIST NIKITA KOLOFF AND 16-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER KOLBY APPEAR IN NEW LIFETIME TV REALITY SHOW.”
(sorry, caps in the caption under the photo)
There is nothing real about reality TV. I am sick of the nonsense about Amish Gone Wild and other Hollywood idiocy.
Most adolescents go through a phase where they rebel against their parents’ values in the polar opposite direction.
And in the case of a preacher’s daughter that means rebelling against chastity. Not all of them certainly, but they’re out there.
Betcha a bunch of butcher’s daughters are vegetarians too.
Bookmarked for viewing after work.

Sort of. It turned out she really had not gone off the deep end. Rather, she just gave that impression.
Their daughter can be a serious Christian who gently promotes concepts like tolerance, charity, love, forgiveness, and morality.
The whole "kids can be the opposite of their parents" concept could be a real hoot.
The 2 that I have known were.
Every preachers daughter I ever met was willing and able to stray.
He must have thought that .001% was unique.

Can't blame this one on hollywood, the family has already provided the script AND the characters........
Then theres Kolby, the 16-year-old daughter of Nikita Koloff, a former professional wrestler who makes the familys home in Spring Hill, Tennessee but is now a traveling evangelist. Kolbys mom Victoria, who is divorced from her dad Nikita, happens to be a preacher herself, hosting a faith-based radio program.
Small sample size and obvious selection bias I admit...
Every child of a Police Officer I ever met was inclined towards criminality.
Every child of a Preacher I ever met was inclined towards a sinful life.
These “Pastors: would NOT qualify as “Elders(http://bible.org/article/qualifications-evaluation-elders-and-deacons “ much less “pastors”.
Yeah—his next project will be “The Catholic Cliterectomy Conspiracy,” followed by “Jewish Jihadists of Jerusalem.”
The hardest partying kids I knew were preacher’s kids. A couple of the easiest girls in town were daughters of a hard assed evangelical minister who spent all his time condemning everyone and everything around him while his daughters...3 out of 4...were busy producing illegitriamste babies. Made me glad that our Priests couldn’t marry!
Actually I have known some people like that too. Parents were unreformed hippie slime from the 1960’s, kids were decent, honorable, straight-arrow Christian types.
So what’s your take on teachers’ kids? (btw, I are one)
To be fair, in the Catholic Church we have our share of these problems too. We had a Catholic high school here that literally had to change its name because the girls there were so wild.
Too many families would send their sons to public school but their daughters who needed to “settle down” all got sent to this particular Catholic school. So all the guys knew that the biggest collection of easy, out-of-control oversexed Amazon women was to be found in that school.
When we played baseball as kids and you got down in your infield stance, “Legs spread wider than a (name of this school) girl!” was the saying. Which damaged the brand a little bit.
Every preachers daughter I ever met was willing and able to stray.”
In our church they always blamed the kids of the Deacons for corrupting the preacher’s children. It really was the other way around.
I are too! An English teacher and an Engineering instructor!
They be excellent in every way!
I remember my brother trying in vain to convince them that his poor scholastic performance was, in some way, the fault of his teachers. Yikes! Talk about a tough sell!
Gee, another fake, scripted “Reality Show”. How cliched.
I’m a cop’s son. To this day,at age 70, I’ve never been in trouble. My brother, on the other hand....
“Betcha a bunch of butchers daughters are vegetarians too.”
Not just rebellion I would think - sometimes also a case of ‘seeing the sausage get made’.
When you know the man behind the pulpit when he isn’t behind the pulpit; or the man behind the badge when he isn’t behind the badge - sometimes that can cause disillusionment.
Especially being the daughter of the sort of Preacher who would agree to do this show.
Well that is also why I admitted a bit of selection bias.
If I had grown up contemporaneously with you and your brother no doubt I would have MET your brother! ;)
Perhaps the fathers (pastors) believe that by doing this, by opening up their lives for all the world to see, they may be helping others to see that Christians are NOT perfect, as the secular world expects of them or perhaps, thinking that their daughters might be ‘shamed’ into returning to the fold. I choose to believe that they are allowing this because they feel that they may somehow, be helping His Kingdom.
One thing I DO know, is that the Adversary spends no time on the non-believer, as that would be a waste of Its time. Instead It spends Its time trying to steal, kill and destroy the Believer and his trust in the Lord. Believe me, I know and have certainly experienced this! I am currently going through a divorce, job loss and possible loss of our home, and the attacks by the Evil One are coming hot and heavy, to doubt His Word! That said, I still wear my ring, believing that the Lord, who condemns divorce in Malachi, will reconcile us, if we are both willing to follow His will.
In the example of this show, the Adversary is attacking the Preacher’s families in an attempt to keep the Preachers’ focus away from God, witnessing and spreading His Word. The Evil One has had 6,000+ years of practice, observing human actions and has the ability to see an individual’s weakness and attack the area(s) of your life that are most vulnerable.
These Preachers need sympathy and prayers, so that they are focused on the Lord, to do His work. Of course, the daughters also need prayers to protect them from the attacks and temptations of the Evil One.
They do these shows because they think it will be a stepping stone to a career in Hollywood.
If this is accurate characterization, then there is little difference with the world--not like some extreme cases, but blantant disregard of God's word:
Three years ago I made the mistake of actually reading the Bible. (The goal is once a year). Believers who have the Holy Spirit need no man teach them (1 John 2:27). It can help/accelerate the process, but reading the Bible is critical. The current faith and practice of many run counter to God's word, due to their ignorance. I blame mealy mouthed, cowardly preachers/men for this, for not adhering to God's word, even at their own hurt and possible loss of wordly stature. The world hated Jesus. It will hate and persecute all those who try to live godly in Christ Jesus. (2 Tim 3:12). Suck it up.
I've found that, as a general rule, to be true. I've also found that most preachers are very far from being the paragons of virtue that they are portrayed as.
Lev 18:17 Do not have sexual relations with both a woman and her daughter. Do not have sexual relations with either her sons daughter or her daughters daughter; they are her close relatives. That is wickedness”
Apparently he thought Leviticus was a shopping list!
Watched "The Good Wife" lately? (actually the Christian daughter was a very small part of a few shows last season)
ABC had a series last year..GCB (stands for “good christian bitches)..lasted all of 10 episodes before getting cancelled..let them keep on wasting their $$$..
In the interest of open honesty, I admit to falling off the path to righteousness when I was on active duty.
Technically not true, since Druze are big on honor killings. Kurds are among the world leaders, and not all Kurds are Druze. It's not uncommon among various Hindu groups in India. Copts in Egypt are into it, too.
Still, I agree the vast majority are Muslim. Just not the percentage you cite.
During that rebellious phase kids run the opposite of their parents. Biggest dopehead I ever knew was the daughter of a vice cop. As for the TV show... it’s always amazing to me how anti-woman the “woman’s” network is. Lifetime, where women get beaten, raped and murdered. And now they have reality programs featuring some of the most obnoxious women on TV; many of whom are probably going to get beaten, raped and murdered. Really if the Playboy channel showed these same shows unaltered in any way the women’s movement would be in massive protest, but put it on the “woman’s” network and it’s all OK.
“God made the world in seven days,”
No, He made it in six days. He rested the seventh.
“Especially being the daughter of the sort of Preacher who would agree to do this show.”
Deserves to be posted twice.
I’ve known several teenage pastor’s daughters well enough to speak on this issue at this point in my life, and not one - not one - was anything but lovely.
Alliteration at its most ironical.
