Justin Bieber’s Former Pastor, Carl Lentz, Was Fired From Hillsong Church Over “Moral Failures” (UPDATE)

November 5, 2020 / Posted by:

People Magazine says that there’s some more drama going on around Hillsong Church, the church popular with famous types like Justin Bieber and Everyone’s Least Favorite Chris Pratt has come under fire before for potential anti-gay sentiment which celeb-followers have denied. Well, now the controversy is related to Justin’s ex-bestie, “Hot” Pastor Carl Lentz. Carl got fired, honey, and it had something to do with “moral failures.” I’d instantly assume something bad but if these people are on that Leviticus-tip then they’d probably include wearing a mixed fabric as a moral grievance, so…

Carl had been a pastor with Hillsong for 10 years, working at the New York location since 2010. Carl even launched the first U.S. location. Carl then rose to prominence as Justin’s “hot” religious guide and baptismal shepherd, but the two allegedly broke off the friendship about two years ago. And now founder of Hillsong, Brian Houston, is breaking it off too. He announced Carl’s firing Wednesday in a statement:

“Today Hillsong Church East Coast advised our congregation that we have terminated the employment of Pastor Carl Lentz. This action was not taken lightly and was done in the best interests of everyone, including Pastor Carl. [This comes after] ongoing discussions in relation to leadership issues and breaches of trust, plus a recent revelation of moral failures.”

Brian said it would “not be appropriate” to detail what led to Carl getting the boot but did blather on about how nice Carl and his wife, Laura Lentz are and thanked them for their work:

“While I have no doubt that this is the right course of action, I must mention Bobbie’s and my personal sadness, as we have known Laura her entire life and Carl for well over 20 years.”

“We thank Pastors Carl and Laura for the way they have served faithfully and sacrificially since the start of Hillsong NYC and for contributing so significantly to the countless lives that have been transformed for Jesus Christ through this ministry,” he added. “They have a heart for people and we are confident that after a time of rest and restoration, God will use Carl in another way outside of Hillsong church. In terminating his tenure, we in no way want to diminish the good work he did here.”

The gossip Instagram account Deuxmoi got tips about why Carl was shit-canned. One tip suggested that Carl was fired for being pro-BLM and “soft” on abortion and LGBTQIA issues. But many more shot that down and suggested it was alcohol and drug-related issues or, and get ready to clutch those pearls, Carl has a porn addiction and cheated on his wife. I know, a holy-type committing SINFUL acts?! That thud you heard was Jesus passing out with shock.

Well, whatever the case may be, I’ve always said that you can’t trust someone who looks like a Terry Richardson cosplayer.

UPDATE: Pastor Carl confirmed that Hillsong dumped his ass today and admitted that he broke the commandment, Thou Shalt Not Pass Your Dick To Another.
