A day after Pastor Carl Lentz was fired from the Hillsong megachurch for “moral failures,” he revealed what he did to warrant these accusations; he cheated on his wife.

In a statement on Wednesday, the church’s founder Brian Houston surprised many by confirming that Carl Lentz had been fired from the East Coast chapter of the church in Manhattan.

Houston said that the decision had not been taken likely but was the best for Lentz and the church.

He said the pastor, who has been associated with many celebrities, including Justin Bieber and Bono, was fired due to “leadership issues and breaches of trust, plus a recent revelation of moral failures.”

This startling revelation led to many folks speculating as to what those moral failures might have been.

Some crazy theories were touted online, ranging from Lentz coming out as gay to having dodgy political leanings. However, those who wondered if he had cheated on his wife were bang on the money.
