Last Sunday, the Reverend Piet Mnisi, a Christian minister in Mvangatini in the Mpumalanga province of South Africa told his elderly parishioners that the 50 Rand (about $7.00) increase in their pensions was a blessing from God. Consequently, it should be donated in full to the church. Further, he threatened that if they did not donate the funds, their relatives would start dying.
The congregation turned on Reverend Mnisi and attacked him, hitting him with their canes, rods, and even a Bible. Mnisi managed to escape through a church window and locked himself in his house, refusing to come out.
Perhaps Mnisi should make future outrageous demands from the safety of a television studio.
