After two weeks, we finally know who the peeing pastor is… and it’s an incredible letdown.
The story went like this: Some “well-known pastor” from North Carolina supposedly peed on a woman during a red-eye flight from Las Vegas to Detroit. He walked to the back of the plane, wrongly assumed he was in the bathroom, and got down to business.
“It felt warm, like on the side of me I felt something warm,” she said.
In her sleepy haze, right at eye level, she saw something very unexpected.
“I jump up and I seen his private area out and I screamed and that woke everybody up,” [she] said. “By that time I actually looked at him and I see him shake himself off and I’m like this man just peed on me! I looked and there was a puddle of pee in the seats!“
The man was taken into custody upon landing and people close to him said he may have been on some sort of sleeping aid. Sleepwalking and not being entirely conscious aren’t unusual in that situation.
BUT STILL! A pastor peed on someone! WHO?!
Considering all the megachurch leaders in North Carolina, the ramifications could’ve been huge. (A Graham! A Furtick!) For a while, the police wouldn’t say anything, no pastors were fessing up to it, and even the victim wasn’t revealing his name.
One North Carolina megachurch leader, Will Graham, issued an outright denial after his name was included in a mix of possibilities:

Religion News Service also pointed out that Southern Baptist Convention president J.D. Greear was a possibility. A spokesperson for his church said bluntly, “It wasn’t JD.”
But last night, an outlet called The North Carolina Beat obtained an unredacted police report after issuing a Freedom of Information Act request and revealed that the culprit was… Daniel Chalmers, the 46-year-old head of Love Wins Ministries and an ordained pastor running the “Catch The Fire” church in Raleigh-Durham.
In the police report, the officer said he advised Chalmers that he observed him standing over [the victim], in which Chalmers told the officer that he could feel him to prove that he didn’t do anything wrong. The officer said he advised Chalmers that it was unnecessary for him to touch him but could see a wet spot in Chalmers’s groin area.
Chalmers was asked if he had been drinking because the officer could smell it and his eyes were bloodshot red, in which Chalmers responded, “No, not a drop of alcohol.”
Later on, during police investigation, Chalmers told officials that he had a couple of drinks and was not feeling good. Chalmers also told officials that he had taken some medication. The name of the drug was not listed in the report, but according to FOX 2 News in Detroit, Chalmers was on Ambien.
The NC Beat says Chalmers was “cited for simple assault.”
It’s almost anti-climactic. The most amusing thing about Chalmers is that he’s a graduate of Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry, the “Christian Hogwarts” school affiliated with Bethel Church, which is linked to Sean Feucht, the idiot holding COVID super-spreader concerts around the country.
Ironically, the Christian Broadcasting Network published an article about Chalmers over the summer because his ministry was involved in symbolically washing people’s feet.
