Muthee Is A Liar: Witchcraft claims debunked.

Bishop Thomas Muthee is a complete fuck-wad. He made claims that he harassed and banished an old woman, who he accused of witchcraft from a Kenyan village, (as if it was a virtue), but as it turns out Muthee lied about the whole thing.


Journalist Zoe Alsop, writing for Womensenews, tracks down Mama Jane Njengu, the supposed "witch" Muthee boasts of having run out of town, and finds some interesting discrepancies. It seems Muthee's account is disputed by his victim...Oops.


Alsop explains:


Muthee claimed that police rescued Mama Jane from a lynch mob at the time,
and then whisked her away for good after gunning down a pet python they mistook
for a demon.

But some residents of Kiambu were somewhat skeptical of Muthee's
claims.

Not least among them is the herbalist Jane W. Njenga, a pastor with
the African Mission of Holy Ghost Church, who is best known as Mama Jane.
She says she didn't own a pet python and she's never left her compound, located
about a half-mile from Muthee's immense new church...Robust and topping six feet
in the trademark shiny white robes of her church, Njenga is undeniably still in
town.


The Story has also been printed in the UK Daily Telegraph:


Bishop Thomas Muthee staked his early reputation in the town of Kiambu on boasts that he banished a witch named Mama Jane, whom he blamed for crime, traffic accidents and public drunkenness in town. Once she fled, Muthee claimed, her spell was broken and peace returned.

In fact, Mama Jane never left. She is a pastor just down the road from Muthee's Word of Faith Church.

‘Muthee was saying that this was a place of witch doctors - where do you see the witch?’ said Mama Jane, whose real name is Jane Njenga.

Muthee's claims tap into a powerful belief system across Africa. Evangelical Christian churches have become incredibly popular - there are 500 churches in Kiambu alone - but some religious leaders still exploit their followers' traditional belief in witchcraft and sorcery.

Muthee has been endorsed by C. Peter Wagner, leader of the Charismatic "New Apostolic Reformation", or “Third Wave” movement.

Wagner, a Col. Sanders looking fuck-wad from a bucket of KFC, a couple of months ago prophesized a glorious future for one evangelical leader, the only problem, he withdrew from public ministry following an affair.
Wagner is not your average theocrat. He’s one of the more militant pricks that makes Falwell and Robertson look warm and fuzzy. His books include such wonderful topics as “Dominion” which I assume includes domination over me. He’s also the author of the bed-side book “How to cast out Demons” for those looking for sugar-plums dreams, or useful tips in foreplay.

So I guess the moral of the story, Sarah Palin is not really protected against witchcraft and all she has to show for it is a youtube video that proves she’s a complete tool.

Couldn’t have happened to a nicer person.

To borrow a phrase from my friend FranIAm. Jesus, I am sick of these people.

Some days I think I'd like to create a little place for all the religious nuts to live in their happy fantasyland. Alaska might be the perfect spot for them.
