Thaddeus Matthews, a controversial Memphis pastor better known as the “Cussing Pastor” for his profanity-laced messages which have attracted millions of viewers online, is defending his decision to host a sexually provocative twerking contest at his church, telling his critics “f*** you.”
“This message is for all you hypoChristians who live hypocritical and f***ed up lives when you have the nerve to judge someone else. I look at many of you who have criticized the young ladies who were dancing in my gymnasium in my church. I look on your pages, you got your a**, your titties out. You got all type of trash in your life but you want to be the one to judge – f*** you,” said Matthews, who leads the Naked Truth Liberation and Empowerment Ministries, in a video message posted on Instagram. “You motherf***ers who are out here judging, there is nothing in the Bible about dancing but it is judging. Again, f*** you.”
Matthews, who launched his ministry about three years ago, building on a longtime career as a controversial broadcaster in Memphis, doesn’t consider his unorthodox ministry offensive to God and told The Christian Post in a recent interview that he doesn’t consider his use of expletives in his messages swearing.
“There is a difference in ‘cussing’ and ‘cursing’ as people say. The words that we use today like motherf***er, sh*t, damn, were not words that were used in biblical times.
“So I don’t have an issue with the cussing. And the people that listen to me don’t have an issue with the cussing, and I’m not trying to justify it to the traditional churchgoer,” the preacher explained.
His latest controversy involving the twerking women, stems from a new initiative he started in his church called Soulful Sunday, an event he describes as clean adult fun which is held in the gymnasium of his church every Sunday from 3-6 p.m.
“I bet your church to stick up to have fun, Soulful Sunday in the gym of Naked Truth Liberation And Empowerment Ministries, every Sunday from 3-6 pm,” Matthews wrote in a post on Instagram late last month in which he shared video of buxom women twerking to popular hip-hop music.
