Liberia Council of Churches has denied allegations from the Liberia National Police and the Minister of Information that the President of the Council is having hatred against the CDC regime, using his religious connections to conceal his mendacious posture as a faceless politician and using his campaign to get even with anyone who has been through his hypocrisies and viciousness.
Speaking to a group of journalists on Wednesday, October 20, 2021, is the first Vice President of the Liberia Council of Churches, Bishop D. Jensen Seyenkulo. ” This statement coming from high profile officials of government is worrisome and counted as an affront to morality and disrespect to Episcopal leadership.”
Therefore, the council has with dismay continued to follow up with additional statements made by other government officials.
The Liberian Clergyman stressed that the statement from the Minister of Information and the Solicitor General of Liberia against the President of the Council portray an unfriendly atmosphere between the Church and the State, which is far from the truth.
He further mentioned that the Council has been and is a champion of good relationship and upholds to its mission that foster the partnership at national and international levels.
Bishop Seyenkulo added that the church remains the prophetic voice of the Voiceless and will not be intimidated by anyone to demand the hard earned respect required for religious leaders. “Our culture and religious values teach us to be obedient and respectful to every authority.”
He added, “The church is not opposed to any political leadership of the country and therefore call on the government to see the church as a true partner and a great collaborator in progress. “You are our members and we have to support you in all lawful actions to uplift good governance and progress of our country”.
Meanwhile the Council recognizes the Critical moment as the country approaches 2023 and called for collaboration as priority, negating scapegoating and mischaracterization.
The Bishop concluded by saying that they are calling on all stakeholders to uphold to the rule of law with specific reference to forced conscription of persons into traditional societies, the respect of the right of all persons no matter their age, creed, faith, or cultural values.
“The council condemns all acts of ritualistic killings and call on those involved to refrain because life belongs to God, not man.”
