Luanda, 17 November, 2023 / 9:00 pm (ACI Africa).
Catholic Bishops in Angola have called on the state to take action against churches that undermine the “life and social harmony of families.”
Speaking to journalists after a meeting of religious leaders with Angola’s Interior Minister, the Secretary General of the Bishops' Conference of Angola and São Tomé and Príncipe (CEAST) said, “These churches should be banned from continuing on this path.”
“Government must take action against churches that attack life, attack children, attack sacredness, attack the family,” Bishop Maurício Agostinho Camuto told journalists in Luanda, the capital of Angola Tuesday, November 14.
He added, “The family is sacred. These churches attack social harmony and peace. These churches should be banned from continuing on this path.”
The Angolan Catholic Bishop said churches whose actions have no impact on social life should also be banned.
