The shocking tale of Pastor Kiweweesi

Apart from the hilarious humour in the following post by the Irish Savant, one can clearly differentiate between religion and the people that practice religion. People and religion are not the same thing and those of us that practice religion need to make the distinction, or risk confusing religion with 'bum sex practices'.

Pastor Kiweweesi became one of Uganda's best known preachers. His Kansanga Miracle Centre which he started in 1992 from humble beginnings, had become a roaring success. But then, out of the blue, David Arinaitwe, a member of the church since 2002, accused Kiweweesi of rocking from the rear. Kiweweesi claimed it was, well, a bum rap and looked like getting away with it. He had even sued the intrepid reporter for libel. But then five other boys have come up and claim the pastor also assaulted them sexually along the lines of the following report............

Ah, no. You cannot differentiate religion (pure, good) from those that practice religion (sinful, flawed). But you can differentiate savages (low IQ) from non-savages (higher IQ).

I'm so glad we in the West have civilised religions, like catholicism and to protect it, those bastion's of morality, catholic priests...

@ VI. The difference between religion and people practicing it is that a religious person has a choice to stop practicing religion at any moment. Yet the concept of religion to that person is eternal. The most fundamental difference is that religion is a thought process, while people are much more complex beings that have thought processes (about emotional intelligence and conventional intelligence) and emotions.

Not all religions are "pure, good." But all people are "sinful, flawed."
