A pastor in Butte, Montana was getting a lot of love from football fans who saw his viral video over the last few days. Pastor Tim Christensen is a HUGE 49ers fan and decided to hold a 1 minute church service so that he could see his favorite team battle it out in the playoffs this past Sunday. He forgave everyone’s sins, showed them where the wine and bread were, kissed his muscles (Colin Kaepernick style), and then walked out.
It turns out that Pastor Tim’s abbreviated talk was just a prank. A parish secretary let the cat out of the bag yesterday and said, “The entire congregation knows he’s a big 49ers fan, so they were in on it and he held a full service right after that.”
