Pastor Craig Lamar Davis and Rev. Juan McFarland Scolded by National Black Church Initiative
They Knowingly Infected Women with HIV Virus
The National Black Church Initiative (NBCI) a coalition of 34,000 African American churches constituting 15.7 million members decries the behavior of Rev. Juan McFarland and Rev. Craig Lamar Davis for knowingly infecting women with the HIV virus. This type of behavior is completely unacceptable and criminal. It is inconsistent with the ethics and teaching of Jesus, which they preach and teach. The Black church will have none of this. They have violated the oath of their office and they should be denied any moral gratitude that comes with ministers who preach the gospel. Their actions are wrong and have cause great harm to the body of Christ. We condemn their behavior in the strongest sense of the word and unequivocally see their behavior as having a long-term negative effect on those of us who share the Gospel of good news in an increasingly dying and dark world.
