Viral Video: A pastor at a megachurch in Oklahoma is being slammed after a video of him rubbing spit into a man’s face went viral. Michael Todd, leader of the Transformation Church in Tulsa, Okla., was delivering a sermon titled “Receiving vision from God might get nasty.” The video shows him spitting saliva in his hand and then rubbing it all over in the eyes and face of a churchgoer.
“And this is where most people would not face Jesus anymore. What most people would do would [be to] turn away,” Todd says in the clip, as he coughed up mucus and phlegm into his hand.

“Do you hear and see the responses of the people?” he said, as members of the audience gasped audibly. “What I’m telling you, is how you just reacted is how the people in your life will react when God is doing what it takes for the Miracle.”

The video went viral, leaving people disgusted and outraged. Many questioned Todd’s bizarre, unhygienic practice. “There’s no way you can defend what Pastor Mike Todd did,” wrote sports reporter Chris Williamson. “One of the most repulsive acts I’ve seen in the name of Christianity and he did it during a whole panini (still would be gross pre-pandemic).”

He also apologized during a Facebook Live and said, “I just want to acknowledge what happened yesterday when the spit hit the fan. I watched it back and it was disgusting. Like, that was gross. I want to validate everyone’s feelings. That was a distraction from what I was really trying to do. I was really trying to make the world come alive and people to see the story, but yesterday got to live. I own that.”
