Tennessee pastor Thaddeus A. Matthews doesn’t care what you think.
The self-proclaimed man of God has gone viral after a Facebook Live chat turned into an expletive-filled rant that could put Samuel L. Jackson to shame.
During the live stream, Matthews was challenged by a woman who felt his cursing as a pastor is a sign of “the last days.” After calling the follower “b*tch” several times, he went on to explain himself, believing his good deeds and faith should far outweigh his choice to swear.
“I’m the cussing pastor while your mother*cking pastor ain’t doing a god*amn thing.”
“I’m the cussing pastor that used my platform to raise $6000 for this mother that was going through a plight, where these other ignorant-a**, non-functioning-a** pastors wasn’t doing a mother*cking thing in the city.”
He continued, “If that bothers you that I’m a cussing pastor, then get your motherf*cking a** off my damn page, plain and damn simple.”
“See, I don’t play. It’s about being real, the truth, and I don’t give a damn what none of you b*tches say, or none of you hoe-a** ni**as either! It’s about telling the truth just like it is.”
The pastor also believes Jesus may have sworn himself.
“Ya’ll worried about the wrong thing. Do I cuss? Yes, I curse! Hell, Jesus probably cussed.”
