A Catholic priest has cleared the air on whether clergy is allowed to bless night clubs.
Speaking to TV47 Digital, the priest who is attached to the Diocese of Embu has said that clubs are normal business and thus they have no problem.
“It is very okay because a club entertainment joint is just like any other business. There is no problem for a priest to bless any business belonging to a Christian,” Father Abraham (Not his real name) said.
The man of the cloth was responding to a video clip that went viral on Friday, November 11 where a man believed to be a catholic priest was seen sprinkling ‘holy’ water on the premises of an entertainment joint.
However, cleric Pastor T Mwangi, says Catholic Bishops should come out to condemn the ‘priests’. “Shame! I hope the Catholic Bishop clergy will come out to condemn such actions and activity because it’s not in line with our biblical ethics and doctrine”
“In a country where 70% are youth, where we are opening mega clubs and closing mega churches, it should act as an alarm of crisis. Christianity is becoming irrelevant to the youths and incoming generations because the tenet and values of our faith are being diluted by the very custodian.”
“This club(Quiver) will be a base of immorality, marriages will end here, pregnancies will be conceived here and aborted at the same time, destinies will be aborted here hence the trade is not in line with our ethics. Jesus interacted with sinners but Jesus never blessed sin. Soon we will dedicate drugs warehouses and brothels in the name of a business. Hii nayo ni apana,” he adds
TV47 has since established that the joint is the newly constructed Quiver Lounge in Kenol which was opened officially on the same day.
The video sparked mixed reactions amongst netizens.
