Today, i think this selective process has trickled down and explains the type of Christian leaders we have in Africa. These are sissy little weaklings who have suddenly acquired status through conformity, playing half dead and being patted on the bum.
No wonder they abuse their power, their nature doesnt know how to deal with it. Look how Pius Ncube went shagging his flock, and rumour has it he even shagged boys (possibly donkeys too).
And now listen to this homosexual pervert Desmond Tutu, waffling for a Brishit solution to a problem that was directly manufactured by the Brishit. How can the Brishit government provide a solution to Zimbabwe's current woes when it that very governement that has created those problems. The ONLY solution the Brishit can provide is to leave Zimbabwe alone!!
I think Christianity should be banned in Africa. It gives a voice to insane people.
Zimbabwe needs your help, Tutu tells Brown
By Peta Thornycroft and Sebastien Berger
Gordon Brown should put more pressure on President Robert Mugabe to improve Zimbabwe's human rights record, Desmond Tutu said last night.
The Archbishop Emeritus of Cape Town and Nobel peace prize winner said the "quiet diplomacy" pursued by the Southern Africa Development Community (SADC) had "not worked at all".
He called on Britain and the West to pressure SADC, including South Africa, which is chairing talks between President Mugabe's Zanu-PF party and the opposition Movement for Democratic Change, to set firm deadlines for action, with consequences if they are not met.
"All of us Africans must hang their heads in shame for having allowed such a desperate situation to continue almost without anybody doing anything to try and stop it," he said.
"It's been deeply, deeply distressing, the kinds of things that have happened to ordinary people in Zimbabwe. People are being detained and human rights are being violated without any conscience at all.
"The people are doing as much as you possibly could in such a ghastly situation. They have suffered enough. It is we who are on the outside who ought to intervene," he told ITN. He looked, in particular, to Gordon Brown "for more effective intervention".
Dr Tutu's comments were echoed in a report by the International Crisis Group, a respected think-tank.
It said that the country's economic crisis had brought it "closer than ever to complete collapse" with inflation running at nearly 7,000 per cent, and called on the SADC to persuade Mr Mugabe to step down.
"Some SADC leaders remain Mugabe supporters, and there is a risk the organisation will accept cosmetic changes that further entrench the status quo," the report said. Possible incentives for retirement could include "immunity from prosecution for Mugabe and other senior Zanu-PF officials", it said, as well as "guarantees, at least to a specified level, that the accumulated wealth, including land, of Mugabe, his family, and other members of the establishment will be secure".
"Zimbabweans want above all an end to their nightmare," it added, but said EU and US measures were ineffective. "Western sanctions – mainly targeting just over 200 members of the leadership with travel bans and asset freezes – have proven largely symbolic," it said.
"And general condemnations from the UK and US if anything (are) counterproductive because they help Mugabe claim he is the victim of neo-colonial ambitions."
In Harare, the Movement for Democratic Change struck a surprise deal with Zanu-PF to change the country's electoral laws.
The constitutional amendment abolishes President Mugabe's right to appoint 30 MPs, removing a major hurdle to the opposition winning an election.
But it also increases the number of constituencies from 120 to 210, which the current election commission, appointed by Zanu-PF, could gerrymander to return loyalist MPs.
