We broke a story where Hillsong New York decided to have a Naked Cowboy take to the stage at their women’s Colour Conference Conference this year.
We then found out that it was a Hillsong Youth Pastor that played the controversial character.
When the story refused to die and the media started to report on it, Brian Houston then decided to respond. We called him out for lying as he was implying that Hillsong leadership had no idea how the Naked Cowboy ended up in the production.
Lucky for all the Hillsong apologists, you don’t have to accuse us of claiming that Brian Houston lied. Lentz reveals to us this time that Brian Houston was simply being deceitful.
“What do you want to know about the Naked Cowboy? … We had a vague look-alike. It was a bad idea… But we like to make issues out of stuff so. Uh- it was our youth pastor. Um- it wasn’t his fault.” [See video below]
Good on you Brian for slagging off at people for perpetuating the story and accusing them of peddling “hearsay and rumour.”
You will notice that Carl Lentz took the opportunity to take a swipe at Christians (disciples/followers of Jesus who who have standards). Lentz clearly did not like being held accountable to Jesus’ standards. But who did he blame for his sins?
