Most pastors can effectively pray. Whether it’s for the lost, the sick or the Church, pastors typically have a heart of intercession.

And then there are D-bags like former pastor Rodney McGill of Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

According to the Sun-Sentinel story, the “self-proclaimed” pastor (nice) was convicted alongside his wife on “nine counts of obtaining mortgages by false representation, first-degree grand theft and racketeering.”

Now, that’s a classy troika of criminal offenses. And they did it together, so that’s redeeming for their marriage, right?

What’s even more impressive… or is it deplorable… was “pastor” McGill kept it real with his calling until the very end, and decided to uh, pray, for everyone in the courtroom who sent to the pokey:

“Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, for every witness called against me, I pray cancer in their lives, lupus, brain tumor, pancreatic cancer,” McGill intoned at his counsel table prior to the start of the hearing Tuesday.

Keeping it real, eh, pastor?

Evidently, he liked to keep his wife in check like a stereotypical misogynistic dinosaur as well:

Arguing for a reduced sentence, Shalonda, who did not testify during her trial, broke her silence and told [the judge] she acted under duress, was a “victim of being Rodney McGill’s wife,” and that she was unaware that what she did was illegal. “Whatever I did was on direct instructions from my husband,” she said.

In other news, all the believers in the jury decided to become frugal by not wasting taxpayer dollars and practiced the “laying on of hands” ministry on these fools.

Well, not really, but that would have been nice as an illustrated sermon to show the wrath of God.
