for laughs

Cardinal Njue of the catholic church in Kenya has sent a letter to churches in Nairobi and Kiambu warning them of some cult pushing for FGM. In his words

“The group has had effects on individuals, families, church and the society. These group bears the characteristics of a cult and use of instilling fear in order to inculcate their doctrines and enforce their practices upon individuals. Numerous cases of family disintegration and conflicts and of emotional and psychological imbalances especially on women and children have been reported”(emphasis mine)

And i am here thinking loudly, isn’t the threat of hell use of fear in order to inculcate doctrines?

The bishop is reported to have also written

“It’s time to uphold the old and seize the new. When we combine the cultural beliefs and our Christian calling and have vibrancy in our faith,”

which though is what happens in practice, happens despite the church. The cultural practices have remained not because the church encouraged it but despite all its efforts to eradicate all traditional beliefs.

    Eh… What did Jesus say about people complaining about the faults in others?

    As Frank Zappa opined: “The only difference between a cult and a religion is the amount of real estate they own.”

    I wonder if the church is equally outspoken about the horrors of male circumcision practiced by another cult?

      I have no recollection of the church speaking out against male circumcision. And many people argue it is not the same thing


      • Ron says:

        I’ve heard that argument, too. But I beg to differ. Lopping off someone’s body parts — whether male or female — without their express consent is tantamount to being the same thing.

    Amazing. Some cannot see their own hypocrisy.
