Nigerian bishop: Population controllers are terrorists who are ‘even more dangerous’ than Boko Haram and ISIL

Posted by Joseph on 5 December, 2014

Nigerian Bishop Emmanuel Ade Badejo of Oyo delivered the following reflections to a gathering of priests. It was originally posted by Voice of the Family, who said they are “extremely grateful for the strong leadership continuing to be shown by Catholic bishops in Africa.”

I am certain that no one sitting here today is oblivious of the Church’s new energy in respect of Pro Life and Family issues especially in Africa. The Nigerian Bishops’ Conference in June 2014 hosted an International Pro-life and Family Life Conference (first of its kind in Africa) which caught the attention of the Catholic World. The Eternal Word Television Network, EWTN, recently aired an hour program on the event and that conference is already inspiring other African Countries to do a similar thing. In local focus, the Ibadan Provincial Bishops Conference has asked Bishop Jude Arogundade and me to organize a trickle down conference on the same theme for our Province in order to raise the awareness and commitment of all Clergy and Laity to Family and Pro-Life issues.

    Another cause for concern is their use of the phrase Harmonious Inequalities their idea is that inequality in money and status is not just inevitable but that it is good for society that the rich can stand over the poor and control all aspects of society without even the slightest word from the peasant.
