There are epic Taser incidents and then there's this: An R&B singer and former candidate for one of Alabama's U.S. Senate seats, Simone De Moore, up until last Sunday was the music director at New Welcome Baptist Church in St. Elmo, Alabama. He was fired by Reverend Riley and, according to Moore's mother, Agolia, "They owed him. He asked them for his money."
In 2007, a 26-year-old Texas youth pastor named Thomas Jason Fortenberry organized a reality show-style activity for four, hand-selected young parishioners. All were minors, and girls. The game, as he'd devised it, was inspired by Fear Factor and involved drizzling large amounts of honey on them, after which they were instructed to "take a shower and wash the honey" off. No red flags there!
Conservative pundits have been known to give President Obama crap for not going to church. It's part of why, if you're, say, Byron York, the president should only blame himself for the millions of morons who believe he's a Muslim. But when Obama does go to church, as he and his family did on Easter Sunday, he still ends up in a multi-pronged scandal. He didn't "do" Easter correctly.
Oh my god cringe city. CRINGE CITY. These girls changed the lyrics from the trashy sin-celebrating "Tik Tok" to something more god-appeasing. But it's not okay. NOBODY IS AMUSED. Awkward, inappropriate teen sinners inside.
Originally, we had a Baby Preacher video. He did not make any sense, and it was perfectly amusing. Even more amusing? Putting subtitles on his gibberish, and actually being fooled into thinking he was saying those words. Watch inside.
It's Sunday, did you go to church today? Chances are, that even if you did it wasn't as weird as any of these videos.
Err... Is this part of the service? Isn't this the devil's music? Be thankful that the kid that appears into the bottom of the frame half-way through isn't you.
You know when you come across something that's hilarious, and even more so because it wasn't intended to be? This video—of a pastor and his crew's auto-tuned talk about "The MoJo, baby!" (for promotion?)—fits the bill perfectly.
