An evangelical pastor went viral on social media during a live broadcast in Brazil. But it was not the viral dances that have become a trend to teach biblical parables that attracted attention, but because of the unfortunate words that came out of his mouth, full of anger, insults and reproaches towards his wife.
Due to the pandemic, all religious celebrations had to adapt to the new normal. Many Masses are now broadcast live through various platforms and the pastor Edson araujo, from the church Dios es Amor in the city of San Pablo, was not alien to this new way of reaching out to his faithful.
However, what must have been a quiet spiritual session, It turned into a reprehensible act of violence that was broadcast live.
The religious did not realize that they had started the transmission and yelled and insulted his wife who was in charge of the technical part of the transmission. His ‘annoyance’ would have been the position of the camera.
“What the fuck. Get it right, idiot & rdquor ;, shouted Araujo. Then he stood up and threw a powerful blow that moved to the camera. After his violent act, he sat down, ‘keeping his composure’, and began his sermon for the day.
“Accept the peace of the Lord & rdquor;he said, as if nothing had happened. What he did not know is that his dozens of faithful had seen and heard his attack and made the video viral on all social networks.
A day later, on Saturday, September 19, the man uploaded a clip, accompanied by his partner, in which he apologized for what happened.
“I had problems with the team we broadcast with and I acted in the wrong way. I cannot have that behavior or speak like that, it does not correspond to my way of being. (With my wife) we’ve lived together for four years and we’ve never had any problems, ”he said.
“I want to apologize to God, my wife and those who have trusted in my work & rdquor;he added.
