Default Pastor Tries To Raise Dead Wife

Well-wishers who attended a funeral at a church in Portland last Saturday were shocked when the husband of the deceased woman, a minister of religion, removed her body from the casket and started praying for her resurrection.
Some persons, who claimed to have witnessed the incident, alleged that the minister who has appeared on cable, ordered non-believers out of the church during the funeral, before he attempted to perform the miraculous act.
The witnesses said the minister then removed his wife's body from the coffin and started praying fervently for life to be restored to it. And, although the first few rounds of prayer seemed to have failed, the clergyman's faith was not discouraged as he continued making his supplication with more passion.

Distraught widower
It was at this point, residents claim, that the police had to be called in, but even they were reportedly met with stiff opposition from the distraught widower, who, according to many, was overcome with emotion and caught up in the act of bringing his wife back to life.
When The Star contacted the police regarding the incident, two officers confirmed the episode but were reluctant to go on record.
Since the incident took place last week, there have been mixed reactions from persons in the parish. Some have said that the pastor was not acting rationally when he tried to raise his wife from the dead. On the other hand, many are labelling him as a renegade preacher because of his action. Several attempts to speak to the pastor were unsucessful.
