Pastor Knowingly Gives AIDS to His Congregation


An Alabama court has permanently barred an ex-pastor who admitted sleeping with his flock while he had AIDS from his church. Deacons at Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church sued to get Rev. Juan Demetrius McFarland tossed when he refused to step down despite an 80-1 membership vote to fire him. McFarland claimed he had been given the job for life, then changed the locks on the doors and tried to take over the church bank accounts.

Montogomery County Circuit County Judge Charles Pierce ruled Friday that the deacons had the right to give McFarland the ax after a series of shocking Sunday sermons in which he confessed he used drugs, misappropriated church funds, had AIDS and carried on sexual affairs with church members on the grounds. “It is uncontradicted that Rev. Juan D. McFarland was not performing his service as a pastor satisfactorily,” the judge wrote. “When Rev. Juan McFarland was asked questions concerning his woeful misdeeds as a pastor, he pled the Fifth Amendment.”

McFarland was ordered not to return to the church, to turn over all church property and to give up any claim to the church-owned Mercedes-Benz.

“Transmitting a Sexually Transmitted Disease” is a Class C Misdemeanor, according to the Montgomery Police Department. At this time, no charges have been filed against McFarland.

Deacon Williams and other members who spoke both on and off camera say they want to start the healing process and move forward with new leadership. Members are asking for prayers to lift their church.

McFarland also holds the position of Moderator with the Alabama Middle District Baptist Association, which includes 34 churches across the state. Calls to association leaders indicate that at this time there are no discussions to remove McFarland from his position.
