(Scroll down for video) What started out as a regular Sunday sermon turned into chaos and anger after a pastor confessed to his sins.
The pastor of the church in Alabama, has admitted to sleeping with members of the congregation without revealing that he has AIDS.
Standing on his pulpit, Juan Demetrius McFarland, confessed to many sins. He told his followers at the Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church, that he also used drugs and mismanaged church funds.
At first, people wanted to support the pastor, who served them for the past 21 years. However, when they learned that he participated in adultery inside the church building with the female members of Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church while knowing that he has AIDS, they were unable to do so, a church member said.
McFarland was fired from the church after saying that he slept with his followers despite knowing that had been HIV positive since 2003 and has had AIDS since 2008.
Some members are calling for police to arrest the pastor. The fact that he didn’t tell women that he has AIDS before sleeping with them, is a crime.
