A pastor's viral church rant — and his subsequent apology — have gone viral.

As The Christian Post’s Leonardo Blair reported of the incident: "A Missouri pastor has apologized after a video clip in which he threw a spiritualized tantrum from the pulpit and called his congregation 'broke, busted and disgusted' and 'cheap sons and daughters' for not 'honoring' him with a watch from the luxury brand Movado went viral."

The incident has sparked questions about pastoral behavior and maturity, grace, and much more, both within the church and in the secular world.
