Ethics and Integrity Minister Fr Simon Lokodo has threatened to summon Pastor Aloysious Bujjingo to the Inter-Religious Council of Uganda, over comments he made about marriage.
“I am going to call the inter-religious council and ask why they allow someone to pause in the attire of a missionary or a pastor when actually that pastor is destroying the sheep. You must be able to regulate yourselves as religious leaders,” Fr Lokodo said.
The controversial Pastor of House of Prayer Ministries International recently kicked up a storm when he said the marriage vows of ‘until death do us part’ made in the church are not anywhere in the Holy Bible.
However, Lokodo said that by making such remarks, Pastor Bujjingo showed that he was ignorant about the teachings of the Bible.
“For my brother, Pastor Bujjingo who said marriage is something that can be entered in and broken at will is totally uninformed and I am here to train him. In the gospel of Matthew and Luk, it is very clear that the institution of marriage is an establishment that is supposed to be perpetual,” Fr Lokodo said.
He added that he would personally summon him for misleading his flock.
“As someone in charge of ensuring that the citizens of this country are not taken into ridicule, I will summon him and if he doesn’t correspond, we have every reason to say he is not allowed to run a church because he is only misleading the citizens.”
