Pastor Craig Davis has been accused of giving 2 of his mistresses the HIV virus. He was arrested last month for reckless endangerment charges and released from the Fulton County Jail on $1,500 bond. The Pastor hasn’t responded to the allegations but one of the victims has spoken out. Ronita McAfee reached out to blackmediascoop.com to explain her side of the story. The pastor has allegedly scammed numerous women for gifts, food stamps and money.
This has got to be one of the saddest cases of a man of the cloth being a leech and a user. Yes in the past we have had stories like Eddie Long and Catholic Priests but this may be far worse. Not only did he prey on the fact that these women were vulnerable he also made their lives far worse than they could have ever foreseen. Not only has he made these women give up their finances he’s made it virtually impossible for them to have a healthy relationship with the next person and even more so has made their chance of rebounding and living life at a normal pace impossible. Any time a man of faith uses his power and stature (Eddie Long) to help them benefit from those who look up to them as a leader for their own personal gain it gives not only a stain to the religion but also curves those who want a chance to feel redeemed and be apart of a church or faith.
At what point do situations like these become problematic for those looking to get saved? Because these people view these pastors/clergymen as someone who can help them over the hump in life so how can you trust them to help you get over a hump when they are planning and plotting to use you for their personal gain. Has religion taken a backseat for pastors personal gain? And are these pastors using their position as the higher to play on those who need guidance?
Where are the clergymen and pastors who denounce this behavior that can pick up the pieces of those broken by these people?
