Don’t Ever Think Of “Licensing” Of Religious Preachers – Cleric Warns FG

A Christian cleric, the Prelate of Methodist Church Nigeria, Dr Sunday Ola Makinde, has warned the Federal Government against the call for licensing of religious preachers in the country, explaining that religious preaching is not a secular thing that government can regulate.
In a release signed by the Public Relations Officer of Methodist Diocese of Ogbomoso, Mr Olubukola Adio, the Prelate gave the warning at the 17th annual synod of the diocese, held at Methodist Church Cathedral, Arowomole, Ogbom, last week. Prelate Makinde said that licensing of pastors by the government would only defeat the sacredness of religion.
His words: “Christians will never support government’s involvement in licensing or regulating the preaching of pastors. Ministers speak ‘thus says the Lord’ and thus the conscience of the nation. Whenever government regulates preaching, religion is finished and becomes secular.”

Religious Group Who Slept With Each Other Investigated In The Murder Of One Member

A religious community whose members studied at the International House of Prayer University in Kansas City, Mo., is under investigation in connection to the sexual assault and death of its leader's wife.

Bethany Ann Deaton, 27, was found dead Oct. 30 in the back of a van in Jackson County, Mo., with a bag over her head, pills next to her body and a note that said Deaton "chose this evil thing." Police initially considered her death a suicide. But Micah Moore, 23, last week confessed to killing Deaton, the wife of the community's religious leader, Tyler Deaton, 26. Moore told police that he and others in the group's shared home had sexually assaulted Bethany Deaton, and that he had been instructed by Tyler to kill her, according to police records.
