Pastor accuses Beyoncé of being 'a witch' and slams Christians who attend any of her shows
| Last updated
Self-proclaimed 'prophetess' Tiphani Montgomery, who founded the Covered By God ministry, shared her sermon via TikTok.
In the clip, the pastor expresses her disgust for the pop star.
She says: "Any of you who are going to Beyoncé's concert, I rebuke you in the name of Jesus, how dare you call yourself a Christian.
"I don't care what pastor you got who's OK with it, I don't care what pastor you got that think it's cool, I don't care what pastor you got that sing along to the songs because they want some clout.”
Not even Jay could escape the fiery rant.
“Why do you think that man called himself J-Hova? It was short for Jehova,” she claims.
But she wasn’t quite done yet.
She continues: "When a witch has a coven, it's normally a small thing. Witch's covens are normally three to seven people.
"When it becomes thousands, it's called a hive. Y'all a part of that lady Bey Hive? And you call yourself a Christian? May the dealings of the lord come upon you."
On YouTube and TikTok combined, the video has accumulated 50,000 views so far.
But just to throw a spanner in the works, past tweets of the preacher show that she was quite the mega Beyoncé fan back in the day.
I publicly came against and denounced their god baalyonce so they found these tweets from 2010, 2011, 2014.— Tiphani Montgomery (@Tiphani_M) February 13, 2023
But I had just did a YouTube the night before saying I was the BIGGEST jay z and baalyonce fan…until I got saved in my shower in August 2015.🥴😂 pic.twitter.com/4pQOfWs5Zw
Montgomery wrote in one tweet that resurfaced from 2010: “Ummmm, I love Beyoncé.”
While another read: “Whoa…This new Beyoncé song is FIYAH.”
However, the ‘prophetess’ has since addressed these posts, revealing she had penned them before being ‘saved’ in 2015.
She wrote: “I publicly came against and denounced their god baalyonce [Beyoncé] so they found these tweets from 2010, 2011, 2014.
“But I had just did a YouTube the night before saying I was the BIGGEST Jay Z and baalyonce fan…until I got saved in my shower in August 2015.”
Michelle Williams, Beyoncé's former Destiny Child bandmate, has denounced Montgomery’s remarks.
In a video she posted to Instagram, Williams says in part: “I just wish we would pray as publicly for entertainers as we rebuke them and damn their soul to hell.
"I know it ain’t my calling mission to damn entertainers to hell and to say that they would drop dead. The devil is a lie.”
