Skip to comments.Anglican Church house turned into a brothel
Posted on 08/29/2011 3:48:02 AM PDT by Cronos
A house at the Anglican Church in Rugare is said to have been turned into a love nest. This comes amid speculation that the caretakers at the church site are offering lodging services to local prostitutes so that they can have 'quickies' in the Holy house.
Impeccable sources who stay near the church informed this paper that ladies of the night would use the church house as a love nest of having sexual contracts with their clients. "The house at Anglican Church is being used as a love nest and the caretakers (sic) are charging a fee for the service," said an H-Metro source.
"We are certain that this is happening because well known prostitutes in our area are coming to the church with different men from the bar and has been happening for some time now. Several prominent people are also coming with these prostitutes to the church house" said the sources.

I wouldn’t use the word “love” to describe what goes on in a brothel.
I’m sure the Lord’s name gets uttered there just as much as before.
Nothing new here,,even in Chaucers time,men knew if they wanted “companionship” all they needed to do ws,”get thee to a nunnery”.
thanks, that’s why I had put zimbabwe in the keywords.
In Chaucer's 'the nun's tale', and the second nun's tale
Saint Urban, with his deacons, privately,
The body took and buried it by night
Among his other saints, right honourably.
Her house is Church of Saint Cecilia hight;
Saint Urban hallowed it, as well he might;
Wherein in noble wise unto this day
To Christ and to His saint men service pay.
don't indicate this double meaning that it gained 400 years later. the nun's priest's tale seems to be a fable and nothing ribald about that.
“Of course it serves a religious purpose,” one caretaker said. “It is amazing how many times He is called by name and one or two patrons a day yell about an actual sighting.”
Evidently you can try to take the man out of the tribe, but find you cannot take the tribe out of the man. Every story I read about Africans makes me think that the people largely are unable to function in a Western world without Westerners guiding them. To plunk them down as Anglican priests without a Western Anglican priest really calling the shots is to encourage a sham Christianity.Whoever is the presiding Arch Bishop of this diocese of the Anglican Church, whether Rowan or the more orthodox African one, has got to realize that the African churches need more hands on oversight. What a blasphemous use of church property; it should not go unnoticed or unpunished.
If the entire article is read it seems quite possible that these were slanderous accusations by a rival faction. While such things certainly have happened, it may not be the case here. We all know how the papers try to smear anything that has any relationship with Christianity.
oooops my bad yr right
Any so-called church whose founding is based on a king’s sexual appetite and/or a requirement that the queen produce a male heir is, by definition, unholy.
Never could take Anglicanism seriously. Never understood those who mindlessly came to accept it as a credible religous tradition.
“love” never enters the picture, bugs and VD maybe
Wicked, bad, naughty Zoot left the Grail beacon on again, and she must pay the penalty!
As in, “Oh, God. Oh, God. Oh, God.”
So you don't know if this "story" is about these thugs, or if it is character assasination of the enemies of Mugabe..
you don’t know much about Africans.
See my previous post.
And since when is Christianity a “western” religion? Only white northern Europeans can apply?
Well, there go all those Borgia popes I guess.
“you dont know much about Africans”
And you don’t know much about the history of Western Civilization which gets its start with the Greeks and its impetus from Christianity. Christianity is the backbone of western civilization. Western civilization is not synonymous with Northern Europe, it encompasses all of Europe, America and westernized countries like Turkey. I may not know all that much about Africans but I do know that most of them retain a tribal nature even when they boast about being Anglican priests. I feel that many countries that became independent after World War II ought to have remained colonies of European nations.
