The pastor of an Alabama Baptist church has confessed that he knowingly exposed women congregants to HIV by having sex with them while ill with AIDS.
Montgomery’s WSFA Channel 12 reported that now ex-Pastor Juan Demetrius McFarland of the Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church made a series of revelations to the congregation in sermons that have left parishioners shaken, angry and confused.
McFarland has admitted to misuse of church funds, taking illicit drugs and seducing multiple women congregants, all the while knowing that he was suffering from full-blown AIDS.
The church has obtained legal counsel, said Williams, and are focused on moving the congregation forward and out of this sad passage in its history.
“Our moves are going to come directly from counsel. We want peace and we want to do things right, legally,” Williams told Channel 12. “We are not looking to hurt him. We are looking to get the church back. That’s our theme: Get the church back. We want the church back. That’s it.”

The dark side was strong in him
But that's ok....
Even though he new that his actions could be a death sentence for his sex partners....
He can repent and still be welcomed into the promised land. Nice

He must still be high. Or, he didn't understand that book he preached every Sunday.
it's revelations like this that makes me question the tax exempt status of churches.
