A minister in Korea who had an affair with a married woman is claiming that the pregnancy of his mistress is a miracle and that he is not the father.
The story became viral after the husband of the woman brought the shocking story to the media after finding out that this wife was sleeping with their minister. He claims that he had no idea that the child his wife had wasn't his biological child.
To make matters worse, the church is defending the minister. On their Facebook page, one of the members wrote, "I trust our minister," and argued that the media coverage of the case is biased. The writer continued, "Because we trust our minister, we are not shaken by what anybody says...We are praying for him night and day."
Another post from a church member argued that the DNA test result was rigged.
Many netizens are criticizing the church, saying, "It is sad that all Christians are getting a bad name because of actions of a few," and "If you tell that to scientists, they would pass out."
During an interview with KBS, the woman in question claimed, "God gave me [the baby]. You can call it a miracle," while adamantly denying the affair allegation.
