A ROW in a South Carolina church last week resulted in the arrest of pastor Ra’Shan Lamar Wilson, 35, who stands accused of attempting to strangle a pregnant woman.

Wilson, above, pastor at Charleston’s Southside Baptist Church, has been charged with domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature. He was given a $20,000 surety bond, issued a no contact order for the victim and cannot leave the state.

Court documents state the victim, who is carrying Wilson’s child, is eight weeks pregnant.

The incident occurred when the victim went to the church to drop off their children. After the couple met an argument ensued, police said.

Court records state:

The suspect then lunged toward the victim, put both of his hands around her neck, squeezed tightly until she was unconscious for an indeterminate period of time.

Investigators say the victim fell to the concrete and hit her head on the ground, suffering an abrasion to the right side of her forehead.

The victim then called 911 and was transported to hospital where she was treated and released.

A report states the victim told the witness that Wilson strangled her and she blacked out, and did not remember anything after that.

At the new year Wilson posted the picture below on Facebook with Dashonna Wilson.

    I love to find out more about these people, but, sadly, the page about Impact Church on the Charleston Baptist Churches’ website is unavailable atm. There is a facebook page still up and running, for anyone who might be interested, but here is the great Man of God in-ah-action (“hup”). I really couldn’t stand much of this myself!

    Just think what horrible things he might have done with the moral guidance of religion!

    It fascinates and repels me that the dregs of society, the least qualified, the most ignorant and bigoted, the liars without restraint or shame, the most promiscuous are those who become wealthy by giving moral guidance to their followers.

    That was annoying. I don’t understand it. I just don’t.
