Pastor Carlton Funderburke Foolishly Asks His Congregation: “I’m not worth your McDonald’s money? I’m not worth your Red Lobster money? . . . I’m not worth your Louie Vuitton? Am I not worth your Prada? Am I not worth your Gucci? . . .You can buy a Movado watch at Sam’s.” This Was After he Called the Congregation “broke, cheap, busted, and disgusted.” — Daniel Whyte III Says he Only Has a Few Words For This Young Man: You Have Never Been Called by God to Preach; You Are a Charlatan, a Hireling, and a Con-man. You Need to Get Out of the Ministry Immediately and Become a Comedian, a Cashier, or a Clown. You Are an Unfortunate Hold-over From the Prosperity Gospel Age, Which God Shut Down Through the Chastisement and Rebuke of the Coronavirus Plague, and Evidently Nobody Told You. On Top of That, You Are the Worst Prosperity Gospel Preacher I Have Ever Heard in my Life. And You People in the Congregation Cheering Him on While he is Preaching on the Fact That You Are Dishonoring Him Because You Won’t Buy Him an Expensive Watch While People Are Dying and Going to Hell All Around Your Church, and People Can Barely Buy Food to Eat, You Ought to be Ashamed of Yourselves. Somebody Said, if They Were Sitting in the Back, They Would Have Said, ‘No, Ni–er! You are not worth my McDonald’s money.’ In the Words of the Jamaican Reggae Singer Shaggy, “IT WASN’T ME.”
Time for a new preacher!

“See that’s how I know you still poor, broke, busted, and disgusted because of how you’ve been honoring me,” Funderburke said during the speech on Aug. 7.
“I’m not worth your McDonald’s money? I’m not worth your Red Lobster money? I ain’t worth your St. John’s knit? Y’all can’t afford it no-how,” he continues in the clip, as some church-goers amazingly respond with encouragement.
