Pastors and Demons

They have ‘carteled’ clout over the prissy population with their doping displays for decades. But, in recent rough times, they have faced faecal flak. From who? Desperate demons? Hallucinating humans? Guerrilla pastors? The media casually pukes their reverent names in association with sold sex, shanghaied sex, fatuous fraud, talented theft and obeah-occult.

    Fake, half (no?)-baked and hypocritical people being found out at last. The continued development of the media will see to that and they'll have no where to hide. Pray the people are liberated from their false and tyrannical holds.

  3. Nicely written NYA. I am so glad these pastors have been exposed. I am afraid, however, that the people they appeal to will continue to flock to them. In fact, I have seen ads being run by one of these pastors on t.v. in the last week. Clearly, there ain't no shame in his game!

  4. I'm more afraid of the Ghanaian media than these alleged men of God. The media in Ghana is so totally lost on a cardinal rule of reporting: "hear the other side". And with their one-sided outrage, they proceed to try, convict and hang you before you can get a word in. I'm much more afraid of them. At least, I have a choice as to attendance of a church. But I have no choice if the media unfairly buries me out there.

  5. NY, we just live in one big hypocritical world. The whole concept of man as saint is just a figment of our imaginations. So what if the Pope wanks? So what if Tiger Woods is interested in more than 18 holes? Are you sure Obama shags only Michelle? And more directly, are you sure you have no skeletons in your wardrobe?

    I've worked in the Ghana media for a while and I must say it is specially designed for the incompetent, corrupt and corruptible. Don't listen to anything they say.

    And if you meet any Priest with an Ashanti name, get suspicious. They are in for the money and the fame.

  6. Well, Kwame, I have opinions too, although I did not set out, in this post, to give any. ;-)

  7. Lol, Abena Serwaa, they're loving that feud in good old Kumasi.

  8. NYB! Have they been exposed? Or have they been written about by the media? Have they been exposed, or are they on trial? Until last weekend when I heard that a pastor had been jailed for 9 years for making a minor pregnant, I had not heard about actual conviction and imprisonment, I must admit.

  9. Lol, twice, Anon. Of course, I am the King of Skeleton! No denying that at all! :-). I really thought you were on a pontificating course, when I read that amusingly ethnocentric line of yours at the end of your comment. Amusing, really.
