Florida Pastor Faked Kidnapping To Cheat On Wife

A Hillsborough County pastor is in legal hot water after faking his own kidnapping so that he could spend more time with his girlfriend.

According to Hillsborough Sheriff’s deputies, Seventh Day Adventist Church of Reform pastor Wikler Moran-Mora sent his wife a text message saying that he had been kidnapped, but that she should not panic. He later sent several more texts where he claimed that he was negotiating his release, which was when she called the police.

More than a dozen Hillsborough deputies were involved in the search for the pastor, who was eventually located by tracing his cell phone. When deputies found him, Moran-Mora allegedly admitted that he had concocted the kidnapping story to spend time with the woman who was in his presence when he was found.

    Dude, you’re a pastor, can’t you just say someone came to you for advice.

    Lying and adultery. Way to go, Pastor-guy!! Was she married? Were you also coveting another man’s wife? Maybe he could hit a total home run and go on a shoplifting spree.

    For some reason I just love seeing all these “holy men” telling lies and committing adultery.

    Their own bible says the penalty for violating any of the 10 commandments is death. Maybe they should start enforcing that on the people that preach that nonsense on Sundays (or Saturdays in this fraudsters case).
