HELL NO!: Pastor Fired For Attending Rick Ross Concert

(AllHipHop News) Right above Wu-Tang Clan on the list of things you do not mess with has and will always be God and a North Carolina pastor learned that the hard way. 26 Year old Rodney Willis was fired as as the pastor of Mt. Salem Baptist Church in North Carolina after it was discovered he had attended a Rick Ross concert.

Deacon Miles Langley said the 11 to 3 vote to relieve the pastor of four years of his duties was a result of a perception of Rick Ross’ music as “tearing down the kingdom of God”:

We know that many saints will have mixed opinions from our actions, but this is not how we do things here at Mt. Salem. We cannot have a pastor praising the world one minute then praising the Lord the next. Period,” Langley continued.

Willis was also observed at a Lil Wayne concert nine month ago.

    I will NEVER support Rick Ross or anything he does. He is just a fraud.


    i agree with their decision… Supporting that Fraud Rick ROSS should be considered a sin…

  • Opposite Of Everyone

    however, the church has done INFINITELY more harm unto the world and it’s people than your favourite swarthy police officer ever could hope to…

    • Celz

      what harm has that church done?

      • Opposite Of Everyone

        you serious???

        Widespread and systematic sexual abuse for a start.
        Widespread and systematic Genital Mutilation (AKA Circumcision)
        Encouraging the spread of AIDS and Sexual diseases by not allowing the use of contraception.
        The Crusades – 11 million muslims killed at the behest of the Church
        Spanish Inquisition – Widespread and systematic torture of uncountable numbers
        Burning of uncountable “Witches”
        Instilling constant fear in the illiterate and uneducated
        Peddling superstition and myth.


        “The Bible contains a warrant for trafficking in humans, for ethnic cleansing, for slavery, for bride-price, and for indiscriminate massacre, but we are not bound by any of it because it was put together by crude, uncultured human mammals”.

        “Religion comes from the period of human prehistory where nobody—not even the mighty Democritus who concluded that all matter was made from atoms—had the smallest idea what was going on. It comes from the bawling and fearful infancy of our species, and is a babyish attempt to meet our inescapable demand for knowledge (as well as for comfort, reassurance, and other infantile needs). Today the least educated of my children knows much more about the natural order than any of the founders of religion”.

      • Celz

        I said THAT Church. Your speaking of a religion as a whole. The same can be said of any institution that is made up of people. And the people who did those things are obviously evil and/ or misguided. And furthermore why would you stereotype a whole group of people? Do you like to be stereotyped? What is your race, sexual orientation,religious beliefs, and etc.. So I can judge you based on people you have never meet but have remote similarities.

        You sound foolish, please stop it.

      • Opposite Of Everyone

        THAT Church peddles the same lies that all the churches who committed the above atrocities are responsible for.
        It preaches the bible which contains a warrant for massacre, ethnic cleansing and sacrificing ones children.

        That church teaches that something is watching you 24/7/365 from birth like a celestial big brother. And whats worse it doesn’t even end when you’re dead !

        And finally THAT church takes peoples money as if that was what God needed.

      • Celz

        Facts my nicca not opinions.. I never asked you to get all emotional. If you want to think that be my guest but you don’t have a shred of empirical evidence to prove any of your beliefs just like anyone else. So save the bullshyt..

      • Opposite Of Everyone

        Emotions are what makes us human. A lack of them defines psycopathy my fellow homosapien. However, it is merely facts I am providing and not as you state, opinion.

        This church was a christian church; therefore it teaches the bible; therefore it is guilty as charged.

      • Celz

        Well you are the first person in history who has proved the claims you stated. I’m sure the rest of the world eagerly awaits your findings. I’ll be waiting for your disclosure on major news networks.

      • Opposite Of Everyone

        you’re tripping.

        you can read what the bible promotes IN THE BIBLE for yourself.

        And I’m not sure but it seems like you’re suggesting that the crusades, spanish inquisition, child abuse by christian priests etc are myths with no evidence, is that right?

        That circumcision is a myth??

        That what you sayin homosapien?

        And as for accusing me of stereotyping; the charges I make are of WIDESPREAD AND SYSTEMATIC abuse not one-off occasional instances so yeah I am specifically stereotyping. I’m sure there are exceptions to the rule, but that’s what they are, exceptions.


      • Celz

        Lmao so you’re saying the bible which was written before the crusades promotes the crusades lmao.. I can tell you haven’t read the bible in quite sometime. Just say you don’t agree with church. You can’t make facts up bruh.. Like at least try and google the shyt before you say it.. And those same charges you make apply to ANY group of humans ANY where from ANY time period. Save it man, you sound juvenile. Peace!

      • Opposite Of Everyone

        The bible promotes and justifies the killing.
        The church interprets it in whatever way they see fit to hold control and instill fear.

        And no, there is no other group of humans anywhere in any time period that has done as much damage as followers and leaders of religion.

        Sheet, the church makes devil worshippers look like saints.

      • Celz

        No it doesn’t man.. The Old Testament had killing in it because those times were tribal. The New Testament is against violence. Where do you think MLK got his inspiration from? I’m not on here too promote any beliefs but you are mislead family. Don’t believe what I am saying or what anyone else says. Find out for yourself, even if you don’t agree with it at least know the truth…

      • Opposite Of Everyone

        the NT was forced upon slaves to instill fear and maintain control. It is a book full of innaccuracies, contradictions and illiteracies written by peasants in the desert during the infancy of our species. But here’s a better summary than I could write –

        “We are told explicitly that Jesus Christ IS THE GOD OF THE OLD TESTAMENT! You probably already accept this. But, by logical extension, you must also accept therefore that it was Jesus Christ who ordered the Israelites to slaughter millions of defenseless men, women and children in the conquest of Canaan; it was Jesus Christ who killed every firstborn child in Egypt; it was Jesus Christ who ordered king Saul to butcher thousands of children and babies in the genocide of the Amalakites; it was Jesus Christ who ordered the Israelites to capture and mass-rape 32,000 young girls of the Midianite tribe after killing their families; it was Jesus Christ who struck dead 50,000 innocent people at Beshemish for merely looking into the ark of the covenant; it was Jesus Christ who caused the painful asphyxiation of every man, woman, child and animal on the face of the earth during the flood of Noah (with the exception of 8); and it was Jesus Christ who condemned every person ever born to a state of eternal suffering, all because 6000 years ago a curious and naive woman ate a piece of fruit”.

      • Celz

        Lol you sound like the fearful one

      • Opposite Of Everyone



      • Celz

        Peace is right. You are entitled to your interpretation but I am sure that every point you made has been made and argued against ad nauseum before you were born.
        The facts of the matter are you can’t judge that church as being hypocrites when they have committed no crime. And there is no definitive proof backing what you say. I’m not trying to prove you wrong I’m just saying don’t be so quick to judge, even when you disagree. Take it easy brotha..

      You just have lost posting privaleges. Thank you for posting.

  • ZUBU

    My question is what group of “ADULTS” into the Church are going to allow a 22 year old to lead their Church. I know he is 26 now, but they said he had been the Pastor for four years. I could see being and associate/assistant Pastor.
    He led them alright… right to a Weezy and a Rick Ross concert. Imagine you donating your money every Sunday and this dude spending your money at a Ricky Lawman concert…. SMH

  • Arrie Mental Woodard

    more dumbazz comments… everybody has a stupid joke…. im going to say this and i dont care who has a problem… so this guy gets fired for the type of music he likes. So Pastor, deacons, priests cant listen to whatever they want and if they do they get fired…. but when a priest molest a child the church will try an cover it up. Nah son, im not feeling that. thats why my relationship is with God and not the church patrons that attend. Hypocritica unless he was at the concert popping mollies and burning blunts

    • Celz

      This church isn’t related to the one that covered up priests. If they fired dude for going to a concert I’m pretty sure the priests would be in jail..

      • God Body

        eddie long is a baptist is he not?

      • Celz

        So are you saying this church covered up Eddie Long raping minors? Because if you aren’t saying that you aren’t proving that these people are hypocrites. And last I checked Eddie Long’s pitiful troubles were in the legal system, so the accusers were of legal age; or if they claimed they were minors they either were lying or took money over justice which is stupid because the legal system is set up for victims to get both.

        Point being your comment is as unrelated and irrelevant as the last one.

      • God Body

        I haven’t followed the case closely, but I was under the impression that Eddie Long is still the church minister. Correct me if I’m wrong. That’s only point I’m making here.

      • Celz

        That point is unrelated to our discussion. The first guy said that priests who did criminal acts makes this church hypocrites. I asked how. Now you bring up Eddie Long who has never been charged with a crime. I personally think Eddie Long is a hypocrite, I don’t like or agree with him. But what does that have to do with this article? Can I just pull up random news stories the country over to stereotype you? Alot of people are bad period. So there are bad pastors and bad rappers and bad everything else. I think Ross is a bad rapper, this church thinks their pastor was bad. Maybe their decision was rushed but that doesn’t make them hypocrites.

      • God Body

        Let me clarify. Neither Eddie Long or this Ross fan/Pastor have been charged with any crimes. This we know. I don’t think it’s crimes that got the youngster sacked though. More the glorification of something other than the church ideals would be my guess. This is just conjecture on my point but I really can’t see it being anything else. Eddie Long, just by mere association has also brought his church into disrepute but they still back him, because he has the air of deniability, just like those priests did, until they were eventually caught and convicted. So in just my unqualified opinion, the chances of Long NOT being guilty are remote, anyone with common sense would suspect this, but yes we must wait, and until such a time as a trial conviction or a confession his church will back him. Perception is more damaging than fact at this point.

  • RMfag

    That awkward moment when you remembered you sucked a deacon off.

  • The Legendary Troll

    not surprised. church people are the most hypocritical

    • Celz

      Maybe that’s why he like Ross

  • BillyBobJohn

    I wouldn’t want my Pastor to be a Officer Ricky fan either. You can never trust a Officer Ricky fan, Be careful.

    I think the Pastor should consider himself, lucky to be out of that narrow minded church. The Pastor probably speaks to a lot of young people and can right a lot, then any of the self-reighteous deacons there.

  • LiddyBug86

    A twenty something year old pastor? How old is the congregation? At 22, you don’t have enough life experience to truely spread the word effectively!

    Going to see Rozay is no different from the members going to see that bottle or that pork, or that porno!! You know those old deacons and ushers wanted to get rid of him, it’s funny because those same ones that voted him out are the same ones who want their ‘so-called God’ to forgive them of their sins…smh

        Yh u right man but do u knw that law was meant for Israelites alone not Gentiles? That was the old convenant, alot of things changed in the new convenant. Rom 6:14, rom 7:4, rom 7:6, col 2:16-17 etc under the old convenant us Gentiles were also unclean and unholy. But Jesus came to change all that now we all children of God not Gentiles like before.
