Bishop Patrick Wooten has given his opinion on Beyonce’s new song “Church Girls,” which features a Clark Sisters sample.
He calls the son a sacrilege.
He added that the song shows Beyonce has sold her soul to the devil and he said he wouldn’t recommend the song.
He told his congregation: “Beyonce just released sacrilege. The only thing I can account to some of that stuff is, somebody done sold their soul to the devil.”
He continued: “When you sell your soul to the devil you get the short end of the stick. Because you’re not gonna live for so long and when you leave here, where you’re going, you’re going to be there forever. So, it’s not a good deal.”
He called the song a “piece of trash” that he “struggled to listen to” but said it was “too bad” and “not for public consumption.”

The President and CEO of the Upper Room COGIC continued: “To sample the song of a real Church lady, Twinkie Clark… I don’t know whether she knew what she was gonna do with the song or not. She knows she’s not saved. And I pray to God that a stiff denunciation of what she did with that song is put out,” said Wooten. He also called out Twinkie Clark, the lead singer of The Clark Sisters who penned the song “Center of Thy Will.”
“I don’t know whether [Twinkie] knew what [Beyonce] was going to do with the song or not, but [Twinkie] knows [Beyonce] isn’t saved,” he said. “I pray to God that a stiff denunciation of what she did with that song is put out.”
His condemnation reportedly comes weeks after Twinkie took to Twitter to thank Bey for sampling “Center of Thy Will” for her new album.

“You can’t win the world enamored by them,” he said before mocking Twinkie’s response to Beyonce. “‘I’m just so proud that somebody wants to use my music.’ What do you mean? You’re one of the best in the world.”
