Eerie Coincidence

Two rural pastors with AIDs violate their flocks with sex.

From the Pahrump Valley Times:
A local pastor charged with three felonies and a gross misdemeanor was in court on Monday for an arraignment in front of District Court Judge Robert Lane.
George Edward Ferguson was charged with felony counts of attempted intentional transmission of human immunodeficiency virus, kidnapping, sexually motivated luring a person with mental illness.
He is also facing a misdemeanor charge of open or gross lewdness.
From the NY Daily News:
A minister who confessed to having sex with church members and neglecting to tell them he had AIDS was temporarily banned from acting as pastor on Thursday.
Montgomery County Circuit Judge Charles Price issued a preliminary injunction, as sought by deacons and trustees of Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church. Price ruled that the Rev. Juan McFarland, 47, must turn in his church keys and his church Mercedes vehicle and then stay away from the church he led for 24 years....
One of the plaintiffs, Deacon Nathan Williams Jr., said church leaders had no suspicions about McFarland until he delivered sermons in in August and September, during which he confessed to having sex with church members in the church building, but not in the sanctuary; having AIDS but not telling sex partners; and using illegal drugs. Williams and Sanford said McFarland  told the congregation that God directed him to make a public confession.
Well, if God told him to confess, why didn't God tell him not to have sex in God's home?
