Adrienne Houghton is defending her Christianity against critics who believe her lifestyle choices are inappropriate for a believer.
On Houghton’s daytime television talk show, “The Real” Wednesday, the hosts of the show replied to criticism left in the comment section of the show’s social media and YouTube accounts. In the segment called “Hit Reply,” Houghton replied to one woman who criticized her decision to attend a nightclub while celebrating with her friends in Cuba.
“A Christian woman should not be in a club. Adrienne talks about going to church and her husband is a gospel singer and encourages her to go out and stuff,” the critic wrote in a comment revealed on the show. “I hate this light-Christian lifestyle.”
With the support of her co-hosts Tamera Mowry-Housley, Loni Love and guest co-host NeNe Leakes, Houghton decided to use Jesus Christ as an example in her response.
“Now Jesus’ first miracle, I don’t know if you guys know this, it was at a turn up folks. It was at a wedding,” Houghton, the wife of Grammy Award-winning Christian singer Israel Houghton, replied. “He turned water into wine because they had run out. Now Jesus was also accused of being a friend of sinners.”
