The news is out: [Carl Lentz — a mega-church pastor known for his high profile celebrity followers and friends — has reportedly been fired from his position at Hillsong in part due to past “moral failures.”
The megachurch’s founder Brian Houston announced Carl’s termination on Wednesday.
“Today Hillsong Church East Coast advised our congregation that we have terminated the employment of Pastor Carl Lentz,” Houston said in a statement obtained by PEOPLE on Wednesday. “This action was not taken lightly and was done in the best interests of everyone, including Pastor Carl.”
Houston added that Carl’s firing comes after “ongoing discussions in relation to leadership issues and breaches of trust, plus a recent revelation of moral failures.”]
God sure knows how to pick his goons to display and showcase the morality of religion.
