It states: “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”

Pastor who admits to having AIDS and sleeping with parishioners won't step down
10/9/14

A pastor in Alabama is refusing to step down after confessing to having AIDS, sleeping with church members without telling them about his HIV infection, taking drugs, and misusing funds.

Rev. Juan Demetrius McFarland has been at Montgomery's Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church for 21 years. In Sunday sermons starting Sept. 14, McFarland admitted his health status, then his misdeeds, the pastor and members of his flock told WSFA 12 News. The church membership voted 80-1 to remove McFarland on Oct. 5, but he will not leave.

A lawyer representing deacons in the church said McFarland and a supporter would not let them on the premises, telling deacons trying to change the locks they would face "castle law" if they tried to come to services. "They're worried if they show up to church, they could get shot," Kenneth Shinbaum said. "Unless the pastor steps down voluntarily, this may very well end up in court." McFarland may turn up in court for another reason: In Alabama, spreading a sexually transmitted disease is a Class C misdemeanor; since nobody has filed a complaint, McFarland isn't under investigation at the moment.

The announcement stunned parishioners, who at first were worried about McFarland's health, and then were upset by the rest of his revelations. "Who does this to people, and you are the leader?" one congregation member told WSFA 12 News. "Who does this?"

Welcome to Satans world. Really you people should have been questioning WHY you are in a Babylon Building in the first place. And then you come out with a leader who is corrupt and spreading diereses amongst your members? Im quite sure signs were prevalent from the beginning, you just choose to ignore it.

1Co 5:1 It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father's wife.
1Co 5:2 And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you.
1Co 5:3 For I verily, as absent in body, but present in spirit, have judged already, as though I were present, concerning him that hath so done this deed,
1Co 5:4 In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ,
1Co 5:5 To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.
1Co 5:6 Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump?
1Co 5:7 Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:
1Co 5:8 Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.


Just saying...

Minister Who Admitted to Having AIDS, Engaging in Sex With Members Ousted By Judge

A circuit court judge in Alabama has ousted a Baptist minister who refused to leave his post as pastor after being voted out by the congregation for engaging in immoral behavior.

As previously reported, Juan Demetrius McFarland of Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church in Montgomery announced during a sermon series last month that he had full-blown AIDS, and that he not only had been having sex with members in the building, but that he did not tell them that he had the virus. He has had HIV since 2003, and AIDS since 2008.

According to WSFA-TV, McFarland revealed further information little by little each week, including that he had been engaging in illicit drug use and that he had been misusing funds.

At first, the congregation expressed concern for McFarland’s health as all they knew during the early admissions was that their leader had AIDS. But as McFarland began to admit other deeds openly each week, they were horrified.

“He confessed to the entire membership and then to the City of Montgomery, because as soon as he got done confessing, it went all over Montgomery anyway,” Deacon Nathan Williams Jr. told the outlet. “So it’s nothing we [are] making up. It’s coming out of his mouth.”

An anonymous member advised that a female attendee, who he described as “a wonderful church member,” is now seeking testing after acknowledging that she was among those that had engaged in sexual relations with McFarland.

Earlier this month, considering all of the information that had been revealed, it was decided 80-1 to remove McFarland from his leadership position. There have not been any reports that members who had sex with the minister will be disciplined.

“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,” a resolution written by the congregation read. “[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.”

However, McFarland, who has led the congregation for 21 years, refused to step down and is instead took issue with those who seek to force him out, banning them from the premises. In response, members hired an attorney, who then filed a lawsuit against McFarland asking that a judge issue a restraining order against the minister.

On Thursday, Montgomery Circuit Court Judge Charles Price granted the preliminary injunction while the case moves forward in court. According to local television station WNCN, more than two-thirds of the congregation attended the hearing.

Both McFarland and member Marc Peacock, Sr. were included the lawsuit, with Peacock being sued for allegedly helping McFarland when he changed the locks to the church, took over the bank accounts and threatened to shoot deacons who returned to the premises. Peacock resigned during the hearing on Thursday, and was consequently removed from the suit.

After Price ruled against McFarland and banned him from the church property, he left the courthouse without comment, and surrendered his Mercedes back to the congregation.
