It was Fantasy Suite night on Monday’s episode of “The Bachelorette,” but Luke Parker’s date didn’t go quiet as he had planned.
The 24-year-old, who was one of four contestants left, made it to the week of the show where each contestant gets an opportunity to spend the night alone with the Bachelorette. Hannah Brown, this year’s Bachelorette, has spoken openly about her faith and appreciated that of Parker’s. However during the date the two had a conversation about sexual purity as a Christian that left Brown kicking Parker off the show.
Parker admitted to not being a virgin, however said he took an oath of purity due to his faith and was hoping to find the same in a partner. He expressed he didn’t want Brown to be intimate with the other men. Brown felt attacked by his remarks.
“It’s just that you’re questioning me and you’re judging me and feel like you have the right to when you don’t at this point,” she said. “And I get when you care for somebody that you don’t want to think about somebody being intimate with another person. But guess what, sex might be a sin out of marriage, pride is a sin, too, and I feel like this is a pride thing.”
Parker wouldn’t leave at first, which irritated the Bachelorette further. He finally left after Brown told cameras she did have sex, and that “Jesus still loves me.”
The drama between the two then continued online, where Parker tweeted at Brown saying: “The difference in how we view sin is seen in the response, I’m weeping at mine and you’re laughing at yours. All sin stings. My heart hurts for both of us.”
This continued, with Brown shooting back “time and time again jesus loved and ate with ‘sinners’ who laughed. and time and time again he rebuked ‘saints’ that judged. where do you fall Luke?”
