South Africa is Moving to Curb Commercialisation of Religion



South Africa may soon regulate all places of worship to stop what one of its commissions describes as “the commercialisation of religion and other dangerous practices.”

According to Al Jazeera, The Commission for the Promotion and Protection of the Rights of Cultural, Religious and Linguistic Communities – known as CRL for short – says vulnerable people are being taken advantage of by being promised blessings, for a price.

The commission is seeking to register religious leaders and also make using religion against people, a criminal offence.

    Great move. It would Never take in nigeria though because of corruption policy 101 of Money Talks Bullshit walks. Every sector in nigeria makes money from exploiting the vunerable. Its the Most lucritive business in nigeria. promised cuts from Tithes and offering to governing bodies will help them turn a blind eye to whatever is going on in the name of Religion. The people who will suffer are the vunerable tithes givers who willl be Taxed even more to cover for the shortfall created by bribery payment. The funny thing is that the victims will be HAPPY TO PAY. TBH they worship the expensive life style of these religious buisness men. They put into the pot to be like them. I say LET THEM BE.
