One almost sees desperation with this guy, to remain "entertaining", to keep seats filled and the money coming in and that means bringing in "excitement" and well now even a LIVE LION in a cage to illustrate your sermon series. Included is also a baby lamb.
Texas pastor criticized for live lion during service
Dallas-area megachurch pastor Ed Young is facing criticism from animal advocates for presenting a live lion and baby lamb on stage during his Easter Sunday sermon.
Young, at Fellowship Church in Grapevine, is the son of Ed Young, Sr., the longtime senior pastor of Second Baptist Church in Houston. He began an animal-themed sermon series called Wild, which uses biblical references to wildlife to teach about the Christian life.
“We are going to talk about animals, live animals, in church, that will absolutely blow you away. This weekend was an epic one, we talked about the lion and the lamb,” Young said in a promotional clip on the Fellowship website.
