It seems like everyone has something to say about Kim Burrell's recent homophobic comments. Shirley Caesar is no exception. 

The 78-year-old pastor, now famously known for the #UNameItChallenge song, went off during one of her services at the First Baptist Church of Glenarden, defending Burrell and later attacking President Barack Obama for supporting gay marriage.

“You (Burrell) should’ve said something 4 years ago when our President made that stuff alright!," said Caesar. Yiiiikes! 

In a series of several videos captured during the service, you can hear Caesar suggesting that if pastors want to talk about controversial subjects, like gay marriage or abortion, they should collect all cellular devices at the door so all comments are kept “in house.” Or...maybe pastors could focus on spreading love and the word of God instead of attacking marginalized groups? 👀

She later went on to say “we’ve all made mistakes” and that anyone in the public eye should learn to censor themselves because “once it’s out there, it’s out there.”

Welp...she should've thought about that before she criticized our boy Obama.
