Pastor Jamal Bryant preaches sermon saying, 'These Hoes Ain’t Loyal'

According to NewsOne on Wednesday, Rev. Jamal H. Bryant, 43, pastor of Empowerment Temple AME Church in Baltimore, Maryland is coming under fire by some for parts of a sermon he preached last Sunday. He has taken to Twitter to defend what he said, but not before he has been criticized for some of the things he said about women.

It has been reported by several sources that during a sermon full of homophobia, sexism and misogyny, Pastor Bryant told his congregation how he really feels about some women. He said, “These hoes ain’t loyal!” as he used the words from Chris Brown's song by the same title to express his feelings. He is said to have roared from the pulpit speaking derogatory words of the song while adding his own commentary to it. As he stomped and raised his voice, the congregation went wild in agreement.

If you view the short video above, you will hear Bryant raising his voice to say, “Old saints, y’all forgive me, but I gotta tell you. These hoes ain’t loyal!” Jamal took to his Twitter to defend his words. He says, “Don’t critique a quote when you never heard message. 20 seconds of a 30 minute message is an incomplete assessment.” That might be true, but if what he was about to say was acceptable, why did he preference it by asking the older people to forgive him in advance?

Many people have found fault with the man of God referring to women from the pulpit as “hoes” as part of his message. For any reader who doesn't know what a "hoe" is in reference to a woman, it is a negative term which is a shortened form and slang for the word "whore." Some people are frowning about the pastor's choice of words during his sermon, and they wonder why so many women in the congregation responded in agreement.

It is reported that Bryant went on and on by using other names for women such as “baby mamas” and “sanctified sissies.” This is not exactly something one would expect a pastor to be preaching.
