Clerics must speak
IT WAS with shock and horror that I read the article, “Voting ANC is like opening gates of heaven” (Weekend Argus, July 24) in which the president of this beautiful country openly states: “Not voting for the ANC is like choosing the devil over God.”
Further down, he goes on to say: “Not voting for the ANC was like committing crime.”
This from the mouth of a man who has consumed millions of rands in taxpayers’ money in his bid to avoid facing 783 charges. Has he no shame? He is using God to bully and undermine his electorate, knowing a large number of the “audience” would be devoutly religious.
It is time our clerics of all religions took a stand against this man who wears the title of president.
Let us hear the clerics come out and put him in his place so the very electorate he blackmails with his utterances can hear the correct story.
Should there not be a reaction from religious leaders to the absolute rubbish spoken by this man, it will seem they condone these ridiculous utterances, never mind his behaviour.
It leaves me disgusted, shocked and saddened.
