Curiosity pushed me to do a search of the word “pastor” on Twitter. Some of the tweets were not out of the ordinary. But some of them were just fun to read. Here are fifteen fun tweets about pastors I discovered:
1. Pastor mobbed by congregation after a visiting Japanese member identified his “’speaking in tongues’” as the Japanese National Anthem.
2. Megachurch pastor says Obama reelection begins the reign of the antichrist.
3. Criticize your pastor on Facebook and bring a curse on yourself
4. Tonight my pastor said something about not having idols or worshiping them or something like that and literally my whole family looked at me.
5. I love how you can look at a pastor and almost guess what translation of the Bible he is going to read from!
6. Why does my pastor tell me that my treasure is in heaven, while his own private jet, mansion and investments are on earth?”
7. Pastor Tip: Preach while holding a kitten. People will do anything you tell them if you’re holding a kitten.
