(NFBSK and NSFW due to foul language)

Does anyone have any clue as to this video's origins? I want to think it is a joke, but the guy seems serious.

It is a video of a preacher cursing and swearing, mostly saying G-D, MF, biotch, (he actually says biotch [Smile] ) and the N word.

It has a public access channel feel to it.

What kind of preacher could he possibly be? What Christian leader would use words like that? He's no doubt a fake!

I think it's a fake too. My phone shows area codes if you just input a # and it came up as CA

I tend to think it is fake too. I have seen some horrible sermons like this on public access though. One I remember particularly was a few years ago here in Delaware, it was an older preacher and he was actually in front of a congregation that was really into what he was saying. He was preaching about lesbians, and he kept calling them 'bull-daggers.' He was saying things like, "There are bull-daggers in the church! Yes, right in the church! Look around you, some of the sisters you see here tonight are bull-daggers in disguise! They don't want to cook or clean or take care of their families because they are too busy out running around with their bull-dagger girlfriends! If you pray, the bull-daggers will be revealed to you! Your wife, your mama, your sister might be a bull-dagger and you don't even know it!"

He was really worked up about it.

Bull-dagger? What does that have to do with being a lesbian (or, as a friend of mine called herself "a practitioner in the lesbian arts" for some reason that makes me hysterical)?

I think this is a fake as well, but not just because of the words he's using. His whole attitude and the background and camera work make it seem like a parody. It's probably a public access comedy show.

Why would that make it a fake? That is the area code for Downtown L.A. which includes South Central, a HUGE black neighborhood.
I'm getting an authentic 'public access' vibe from this.

The greatest public access show I ever saw was one I saw in Syracuse when I was in school.

It was basically these Irish guys sitting around a kitchen table talking about how great pot ("the herb") was. The part that made it hilarious was when the youngest of the group tried to say something, and the "leader" (host?) started yelling "shut up! You're ****ing it up!" at him. It was beautiful.

ETA: The f-word is filtered now? When did that happen?

I think it's real for three reasons: First, the man seems to be more than just a cussing preacher; he seems to be a little bit crazy. Second, parodies usually play up stereotypes to a ridiculous degree, whereas this guy doesn't seem to fit that bill. He just sounds like a real urban African American from a rough scene who decided to preach. Third, these are real televangelists:

So I tried calling the phone number from the beginning. My call "could not be completed as dialed" without the "1" before the area code, and with the "1" could "not be connected."

The area code (213)is for Los Angeles, but several different reverse number lookups online reveal no one with that phone number and area code.

I don't know much about area codes and exchanges, but it appears that the exchange (730) is from Maryland, as the number (730-9589) belongs to this person:

EDIT:*name and address removed*
Columbia, MD 21044
(410) 730-9589

So maybe it's real - but the phone number is fake (???)

Exchanges are reused througout area codes. Just because Maryland uses 730, doesn't mean other places don't. I think you want to remove that nice gentleman's name address and phone number from your post.

I second what Gibbie said.

We have a city just across the river that uses the same exchange with a different area code.

I was unable to get the audio but I can read lips. Seems he had a lot to say.

Considering the show seems to be dated "5/20/97," and the man's television "ministry" does not seem to have flourished (after all, none of us have seen this guy before), I'd say it's no surprise that the number is not in service; probably, this guy has long since left the "ministry". The show is almost nine years old, if authentic.

This guy reminds me of Blowfly, only Blowfly never made a ministry.

I don't think it matters, as I found that information online in the first place, which means he has a listed number and anyone could find him. Thus is the perils of the phone company.

But I know what you're saying, so I shall do that now. I wasn't really thinking.

I don't see the problem. In our historically white, middle class, "quiet in church" background, we don't expect to hear a man of God talk in such a way.

But why not?

He's probably trying to reach the urban youth of today. Chances are he's a born again Christian, and the way of speaking is second nature to him.

What about believing in Jesus and the Bible makes you suddenly stop swearing?
