"Fried chicken has mysterious powers," Oak Hill Missionary Baptist Church pastor Michael Minor told his local Mississippi news station

The pastor claims you can't eat just one piece and that's why he's decided to ban the dish from church events along with sugary drinks. 

It's all part of Minor's plan to fight obesity within his parish. He's also devoted to helping his church members to sign up for insurance coverage under the controversial new Affordable Care Act.
