“I forgive you and I’m praying for you, I hope that God delivers you.”
A video in a Brooklyn church has gone viral because it shows the pastor and his wife stealing $1 million worth of jewelry. The flashy Bishop, Lamor Miller-Whitehead, is well known for wearing designer outfits and extravagant jewelry.
At one point in the video, it appears that the pastor is giving his speech and a person with a gun interrupts him.
“All right, all right, all right,” Whitehead said in the video as he raised his hands and lowered himself to the floor. He said: “That ‘all right, all right, all right is pretty much stating that I don’t want, I’m not going to do anything, right, ’cause I know y’all coming for me, y’all coming straight to me. I don’t want my parishioners hurt.”
He added: “I got women and children there. As I got down, one went to my wife and took all her jewelry and had the gun in front of my 8-month-old baby’s face.”
“Took my bishop’s ring, my wedding band and took off my bishop chain and then I had chains underneath my robe, and started tapping my neck to see (there was) anything else. So that means they knew, they watched, and they knew that I have other jewelry.”
He says that his church is traumatized. According to the police, there were up to 50 people detained and none arrested. Meanwhile, the pastor made a statement that said “I forgive you and I’m praying for you, you know and I hope that God delivers you from the mindset of who you are at this time.”
