A North Carolina pastor, Rodney Wills, faced the wrath of his congregation after attending a Rick Ross concert. Ross was described by a deacon in the church as "tearing down the kingdom of God," according to BlackAmericaWeb. Wills was also spotted nine months ago at a Lil Wayne concert.

[Twenty-six-year-old] Rodney Wills was fired from his position at a North Carolina church after he was spotted at a Rick Ross concert. 

Wills was a pastor at Mt. Salem Baptist Church in North Carolina for almost four years when he was unexpectedly fired.

The deacon board voted 11 to 3 when they met to vote whether Wills should keep his job or not.

Wills was unaware of his firing until he showed up to the church and he noticed his parking sign had been removed from his usual spot ...

One of the Deacons, Deacon Miles Langley, released a statement about the firing that reads, "We cannot have our leader supporting people of this world who are tearing down the kingdom of God," reports the Guardian Express.
