Church Pastor Confesses He Has AIDS, Slept with Flock

NBC News, October 9, 2014

An Alabama pastor shocked his flock by reportedly confessing from the pulpit that he has AIDS, had slept with church members, used drugs and misused funds. Rev. Juan Demetrius McFarland of Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church in Montgomery confirmed to NBC affiliate WSFA that he made the admissions in a series of sermons that began in September. Deacon Nathan Williams said the church membership voted 80-1 to remove McFarland as pastor on Oct. 5, but he refused to step down.

“He fraudulently concealed from the congregation . . . that he had knowingly engaged in adultery in the church building with female members of Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church while knowingly having AIDS,” said the resolution to remove McFarland.

He also “fraudulently withheld information that he had been engaging in the use of illegal drugs while preaching and performing pastoral duties” and “withheld information from church membership that he had misused church funds,” the resolution said.


Church leaders tried to change the locks on the door, but were confronted by McFarland and a supporter who declared they were banned from the premises and would face “castle law” if they tried to attend services, said the deacons’ lawyer, Kenneth Shinbaum. “They’re worried if they show up to church, they could get shot,” he said. “Unless the pastor steps down voluntarily, this may very well end up in court.”

McFarland, who has been pastor for 21 years, could not be reached for comment on Thursday. {snip}

    The very revrum Muhdik.

      “The debbil made me do it!”

    • Lionel Hutz

      All due respect- this level of commentary belongs at chimpout, or wherever that type of talk takes place today.

  • I can’t wait for the David Carroll video about this.

    I happen to think that a big majority of black churches are nothing more than money and sex hustles for charismatic black men.

    • Oil Can Harry

      In a typical black church the reverend is an adulterous horndog and the organist/ musical director is a down low brutha.

      • Adolf Verloc

        But he can wield that organ to good effect!

        • Samuel Hathaway

          He should be charged with assault with a deadly weapon.

      • When I said “sex hustles for charismatic black men,” I didn’t mean just heterosexual sex.

        Look up “Bishop Eddie Long.”

        • Samuel Hathaway

          Yeah, Bishop Eddie Long, that’s him. What a fake.

      • Whitetrashgang

        I hate to ask how you know the second part.

      • Samuel Hathaway

        Even the original broadcast of the Waltons in 1970 hinted at black preachers degeneracy. In the story, the black preacher went to work helping to make moonshine.

    • propagandaoftruth

      Except ATLAH, lol…

    • Samuel Hathaway

      Think back to the New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, in Lithonia, GA. when the pastor was sending “muscle” pictures of himself to black teenage boys in the congregation

    • Sick of it

      Quite a few are simply fronts for the NAACP’s political activity actually.

    • HE2

      QD, I confess to a fondness for Brother LeRoy, pastor of the Church of What’s Happenin’ T’day.
      He preached it right. And, the brutha never fondled no wimens or down lows that I know ’bout.

    • proud white

      He will still make heaven. They have affirmative action for blacks there as well

      • ShermanTMcCoy

        Getting ready to be moderated again, but here goes:

        I believe one requires “a soul” to get into heaven, not just “soul.”

        • HE2

          Sherman, what is with all the moderating?
          We are no more obnoxious than usual, are we?

          • ShermanTMcCoy

            Sigh. Any time I have questioned the existence of the Negro soul, I’ve been moderated.

          • HE2

            I cannot figure why that would bring down the mods, Sherman. I agree with you.
            Most negroes lack a self-observing ego.
            This is a device that reveals to one’s thoughtful process the insight to stand outside ourselves, to stop, look, and listen, realizing who we are, what we are doing, the impact, whether harming, or not, on others.
            In essence, an intact or absent soul.
            Most negroes lack this element in their psycho-spiritual make up.

          • DiversityIsDeath

            That’s why ghosts sightings are only of White people. It’s been said that there are no negro or animal ghosts because these creatures do not possess that divine spark of creation, that special something that lives on after death.

          • Alexandra1973

            Except that when you die, your soul goes either to heaven or hell…your spirit does not wander around on this plane.

            I believe that so-called “ghosts” are devils.

          • Earl P. Holt III

            Attributable to the attenuated development of their frontal lobes…

          • HE2

            attenuated development of their frontal lobes…

            And the mysterious prefrontal cerebral cortex, which appears to stop developing earlier in negroes than Whites.

            Lest we forget, the vanguard state of California whose legislature created and implemented the “Task Force to Promote Self-Esteem and Personal and Social Responsibility.”

            Its purpose allegedly was to discover how self-esteem is “nurtured, harmed, rehabilitated” and to understand its relationship to social problems. [quote]

            It segued into a movement that took off at warp speed across the socio-political and educational landscape.
            Even preschools taught that self esteem trumped knowledge.

            Negroes already possess a high level of libido combined with an inflated, but unearned and false sense of aggrandizement and esteem.

            Combine that with defective self observing ego, no awareness of thought, urge to act, action, and consequences and you are looking at today’s negro culture.

          • Earl P. Holt III

            Now we have the spectacle of nigro public school students who think they have very strong skills, but are below Outer Mongolia and Bora-Bora in both math AND English proficiency.

            This is what happens when a nation allows its schools to be run by functionally illiterate Third World peoples who never absorbed a high school education, but all have “Doctorates” in Edumacation…

          • HE2

            Mr. Holt, in pre-med, I had a negress professor [an oxymoron, if there ever were one], who, instead of lecturing, read word for word out of the text.

            When a student asked an interesting question that dug a little deeper into the topic, her answer, after displaying a look of bewilderment, was always the same, “I would like you to research that and get back to us.”

            We all knew she was ignorant and had no place lecturing to a class of determined, intelligent college students.

            What a joke. Except it is not funny.

          • Earl P. Holt III

            God bless you for your perseverance…

          • HE2

            Thank you, Earl.
            I enjoy your comments, btw.

            Keep up the good work.

          • HE2

            Thank you, Mr. Holt. :]

          • Earl P. Holt III

            Just be grateful she didn’t decide to do a Residency in Brain Surgery, or become an airline pilot…

          • Guest

            @Earl: gratefully, she was not an M.D.
            This was a pre-med science class, a hard science, at that.

            It amazed us all that someone of her low caliber would be placed in a teaching position for that particular course. But, hey, this was Berkeley.

            Certainly explained why she read from the text rather than lectured.

          • Earl P. Holt III

            Your generation (I’m 62) has been exposed to more “Affirmative-Action” than mine, both in the classroom and in the workplace: Do you think that a majority of your generation “get it” when it comes to the arbitrary and capricious and un-American nature of this particular outrage?

          • HE2

            Mr. Holt, you asked: “Do you think that a majority of your generation “get it” when it comes
            to the arbitrary and capricious and un-American nature of this
            particular outrage?

            Sorry so long getting back to you.

            NO, they do not “get it.”
            As reported, the class acknowledged that this AA woman prof. was not qualified. It stopped there, with no questioning why she would be placed in that position. That is too big a step for them to take.

            The larger picture, the National or global implications of the West’s obsequious accommodation of low IQ darks? It is lost on them.

            I sense it is alarming on some deeper level, but they are terrified of discussing such things.

            Berkeley is oppressively Marxist.

        • Lagerstrom

          I’m wondering if even Jesus himself would put up with an a**ho*e such as this specimen.

      A mixed race friend had a black preacher father who beat his white mother, took off when they were 2, had worked in the past as a pimp, and was marrying a 26 year old at age 50 or so. He was also a serious cocaine addict. He drove a fancy car but lived in a studio. My “friend” had full blown Narcissistic Personality Disorder and emotionally abused his girlfriends, would get into violent fights with his sister, etc. He was extremely popular among whites (seemed to only hang out with whites) and very charismatic.

    • Ask and I shall receive.

      I’m going to tokenize the video links (it’s a two-parter) because if I post the direct YouTube URL, they’ll show up as embedded videos here. And David Carroll’s videos aren’t everyone’s cup of tea. He even uses language we probably can’t use here on AR.

      • propagandaoftruth

        At first this guy creeped me out, but…

        In post Social War New America the right to associate/dissociate will be sacred. The Department of Negro Affairs will be almost exclusively manned by Negroes. I think this guy has some potential if approved by Manning, of course.

        Looks like ATLAH is perfectly OK with Amren running their videos.

        Funny. Southerner here. That booming Negro preacher-man style oratory I generally detest. 99.9% of the time the message is either stupid or insulting or downright infuriating.

        But when Manning’s version of Truth (close enough for me, close enough for his people surely) comes booming forth…it’s like a choir of angels in my ears, lol!

        In fairness, nobody comes closer to what I imagine ancient classical oratory these days than some black preacher men. Sure, specifics and all but…

        Those ancient orators had to be trained to speak in public and that training included vigorous aerobics in an age when microphones didn’t exist – only clever acoustics.

        In a way the microphone killed great oratory. I think that fellow from Austria hurt it too.

  • MekongDelta69

    It gives a whole new meaning to “Missionary [black] Baptist Church.”

    Nahm sayin’?

  • SentryattheGate

    I believe it’s pretty common that once a black gets some power, he soon gets a huge ego, thinking he deserves everything and can do no wrong! It’s part of their childlike thinking. Examples are: Obama, Jesse Jackson Jr., Senator(?) Jeffers, several mayors (of DC, Detroit,SF…) lots of black athletes, dictators in Africa, etc, etc.

    • Usually Much Calmer

      The head of the Detroit Public Schools was fired for masturbating in his office during a meeting with the female head of the school board.

      • Whitetrashgang

        I don’t get why he was fired, truly something must have happen that we don’t know about.

        • jambi19

          I give you the go to libtard/negroid deflection tactic in these cases,

          “What EXACTLY was the HEAD of the school board DOING in his office?”

        • Usually Much Calmer

          He was fired for ‘ejaculating on public property while black’?
          That’s the only thing I can think of. Since he was also functionally illiterate, he may not have been able to read the ‘Property of DPS’ tag affixed to his desk. The system failed him.

          • Whitetrashgang

            Yes truly, society failed him. The school at the very least should of had a couple hookers on staff. What is wrong with people.

    • mikekingjr

      Did you forget MLK Jr??

  • Truthseeker

    What a degenerate. And he thinks he should be allowed to keep his position even after admitting to all this. This guy is nothing but a hustler.

    • DiversityIsDeath

      And he will probably get to keep his job, too. Once the blacks find out whitey wants this guy out, they will reflexively defend him and demand to keep him in his position. Remember Mayor Marion Barry? Just for spite the blacks will keep him in place. (Boy they sure showed us, didn’t they?)

  • GeneticsareDestiny

    If he knowingly had sex with women while infected with AIDS and didn’t inform them of this prior to the act, he should be charged with attempted murder. And if any of those women eventually die of AIDS-related complications, it should be upgraded to murder.

    That kind of behavior is absolutely unacceptable and should be punished severely.

    • me

      I thought it WAS punishable by law….or is that law just for Whites, too?

      • Just for whites. The progressives are working hard to end “discrimination” against people with HIV/AIDS, so just wait until it is considered a gift to give to people. It is discriminatory to not have relations with someone with HIV/AIDS.

    • Whitetrashgang

      If you have noticed Black people don’t follow the law that closely.I know I am sticking my neck out a bit by saying that.

      • I have never noticed this. They seem like contributing, law abiding citizens. It is evil whitey that is provoking them and oppressing them into not following the law.

      • TruthBeTold

    OK, we’ve heard about the sex and drugs. Where’s the rock ‘n’ roll?

    • me

      Them bruthas be in to the hip hop now. They can’t play any instruments except the ‘organ’, so they have to grunt into a mic.

      • Samuel Hathaway


      • You noticed that too. Blacks used to be great at rock & roll, but that was a long time ago.

        Jimmi Hendrix was amazing with a guitar, but none of them seem to play any acoustic instruments at all these days.

        • Alexandra1973

          A cousin of mine took me to the Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. I wasn’t really impressed.

          But I got to see a neat movie that detailed the beginnings of rock. And I noticed there were plenty of blacks in that movie.

          I could not help but think that back then they were setting the stage for miscegenation to be acceptable.

    • Lagerstrom

      Well, to quote one of the drummers from Spinal Tap, “as long as there’s sex and drugs, I can do without the rock ‘n’ roll!” Anyway, they gave rock ‘n’ roll away along time ago.

  • In other words, McFarland is a typical Negro. He’s just the one that admits to his degeneracy.

    • His confession is really a boast.
      He’s proud to have fleeced & seduced his flock.

      He refuses to leave because he genuinely believes he has done nothing wrong.

    In the black community there is rarely a greater honor for a woman than sleeping with Pastor, second only to professional athlete baby momma.

  • TonyWestfield

    No no no, y’all just don’t understand. This fellow is a HOLY man. And so he will surely succeed at purging “the Aids” from his body by having intercourse with a virgin female. Have you heard? It’s all the rage on the home continent. Of course, the pastor’s challenge is to find a virgin. He is working his way down the age spectrum, “trying” every female in the flock. No virgins yet. SHOCKING. But he has made progress…20 years old…19 years old…18…When he gets to the single digits, he will have found The Cure…this is exactly how it shakes out, over there, in the Motherland. Let’s not be judgmental. We must be respectful towards other cultures. Our culture isn’t better, after all. It’s just “different.”

  • ShermanTMcCoy

    But blacks like Manning make a basic error in their assumptions if they believe that blacks are by-and-large capable of controlling themselves.

    • propagandaoftruth

      I get the feeling he may be a realist. Dunno. Sometimes if you delve into Manningland a little deeper – substitute “nature” for “God” in his sentences. Especially if you are not too religious.

      I respect the use of symbolic language.

      Whatever his deal is I have to respect the guy on any number of levels. I don’t think he’s just a showman.

    • tlk244182

      I got the impression that he was conceding exactly that when he said the only person that can help the Black man is God. That was the point of the sermon, as I understood it.

  • Alpin Thueson

    Wondering what percentage of the congregation supports McFarland? If its a substantial block I recommend they attempt to form a ‘relationship’ with the local Unitarian Universalist Church/ Fellowship as they understand all too well what these ‘misunderstood souls’ are going through.

    Then again, if one of the ‘rebel’ congregants shot McFarland in the head during a sunday service I would say that ‘justice was done’. Probably should have happened long ago.

    Typical black church behavior. Most of these churches are not affiliated with any established denomination and are merely scam operations run by phony self-appointed sex and drug addicted “ministers.”. What per type so-called Christian would dare to have adulterous sex with a “pastor” in the very church they attend? This goes to show the depravity of black “culture.”

    By the way, Jesse Jackson is on of these scam preachers and deserves to be in jail along with this one. Hey Jesse, don’t bend over in the shower with this guy.

    If your kids are enrolled in the public schools in most large, “urban” areas, they are being “taught” by functionally-illiterate black women who are borderline retarded, and who never absorbed even a high school education.

    50 years ago, the latter would have been hired as “domestic help,” and they weren’t so great at that, either, although it was far more commensurate with their innate mental abilities…
