An Episcopal Church in San Francisco is having a “Beyoncé Mass”.
No, I’m not joking😒
We have returned to paganism and the false goddess is Beyoncé. https://t.co/12XN5Ubdwn

This #BeyoncéMass is blasphemy and it makes Beyoncé look bad because she stated that’s she’s NOT God. The church is a place for God and only him.

A San Francisco church usually gets 50 people for Wednesday night mass. They did a Beyoncé inspired service last night and had 750! More, on 6abc pic.twitter.com/seMAUbxhMo

can someone explain to me what the #BeyonceMass is/was? the idea of people gathering to observe another human being inside of the church is a bit unsettling to me.
i need an explanation.

Oh okay so the Beyonce mass is still stories from the bible but they are just incorporating her songs to tell them
