AIDS Pastor Turns Over Church Property

The Rev. Juan McFarland, ousted as pastor of Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church after confessing to having sex with congregants without telling them he has AIDS, has complied with a judge's order to turn over keys, bank accounts and a Mercedes-Benz to the Alabama church. McFarland made the deliveries prior to a 5 p.m. Thursday deadline that a judge had decreed. The former pastor arrived in the Mercedes around 4 p.m., surrendered it to the church, and drove away in a different Mercedes with an unidentified woman. McFarland was removed after he refused to step down despite admitting his sexual misbehavior from the pulpit.
