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.

    Hey! I’ve had cancer before he prayed this prayer! It is true! God answers prayers before they even leave your mouth!

  4. Gives pray for your enemies a whole new twist . . .

    What a scumbag.

    Sounds like, before he let this get to trial, he should have read:

    Luke 12:58

    “When thou goest with thine adversary to the magistrate, as thou art in the way, give diligence that thou mayest be delivered from him; lest he hale thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and the officer cast thee into prison.”

    Would have saved him…….and his sweetheart much embarrassment!!! LOL! Oh well.

    This makes me think of the instance when the disciples wanted to call down fire from heaven against people that they had a problem with, and Jesus told them calmly, that they didn’t know what spirit that they were operating from.

    In other words they were letting the Devil use them, so is this pastor. He is far from what I would want in a pastor. He might need blow the dust off of his book, because his Eisegesis aint cutting it!, when it applies to how he is to deal with Civil Authorities.

    I don’t think that this is what Paul meant by practicing freedom in Christ.

    Then again, you know how those prosperity preachers are … maybe this guy thought that false mortgages were just the tools God wanted to use to make him rich. Punish the evil mortgage brokers, give him lots of houses, all that stuff.
