Jesus Take The Wheel: Montgomery Pastor Admits To Having AIDS, & Sleeping With Church Members!??!?!
It's an announcement that continues to rock a Montgomery church and the surrounding community. WSFA 12 News confirmed with church leaders, including the now former pastor of Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church, Juan Demetrius McFarland himself, that McFarland confessed from the pulpit a few Sundays ago that he had full blown AIDS and had slept with church members without revealing he had AIDS. Shocked and stunned, church members contacted the 12 NEWS DEFENDERS and reaction is coming in from the congregation that is still in disbelief.
McFarland didn't hold back when he revealed to worshipers at Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church on Sept. 14, that he contracted HIV in 2003 and discovered in 2008 he had AIDS. "The church was very accepting of Reverend McFarland and was willing to help him in any way possible," a church member, who wanted to remain unnamed, explained. Once the pastor, with 23 years of leadership, started revealing more and more on the following Sundays, members and leaders say they realized he had crossed the line. Full Story
This speaks to the insanity of pastor worship. It is not his sleeping with people in his church KNOWING he had full blown AIDS, or stealing from his own church, or having sex in the church.... It is the fact that after he told his congregation he did all those things.... MANY SUPPORTED HIM AND WANTED HIM TO CONTINUE TO BE PASTOR. That is the insanity. How do you explain that? What is that about? Help me, because I just don't get it.
