Zimbabwe’s top cleric urges Britain to invade - Times Online

Zimbabwe’s top cleric urges Britain to invade - Times Online
ZIMBABWE’S leading cleric has called on Britain to invade the country and topple President Robert Mugabe. Pius Ncube, the Archbishop of Bulawayo, warned that millions were facing death from famine, unable to survive amid inflation believed to have soared to 15,000%.

Mugabe, 83, had proved intransigent despite the “massive risk to life”, said Ncube, the head of Zimbabwe’s 1m Catholics. “I think it is justified for Britain to raid Zimbabwe and remove Mugabe,” he said. “We should do it ourselves but there’s too much fear. I’m ready to lead the people, guns blazing, but the people are not ready.”
Wow! This Bishop is made of stern stuff.

What is, however, really eye-popping is the rejoinder in The Herald (Harare) to Bishop Ncube's criticism of the Mugabe regime.
t qualifies the epithets heaped on him over the years among them "mad, inveterate liar", "mad bishop", "Western agent", among others.

Names that are being vindicated by Pius' lack of piousness that sees him commit heresy with impunity.

When Pius Ncube should be praying and visiting the sick, he is busy praying for the death of his critics particularly President Mugabe.

If Pius read the same Bible as everyone else, he would have discovered that leaders of nations are there because God has put them there and the Bible even urges everyone to respect their leadership.
That old "Christianity isn't political" canard. It seems that the mouthpieces of Mugabe's madness should read that Bible again ... maybe some good old pieces of prophetic indignation. Amos, anyone?
