Church v Patient: Can a Pastor be sued for wrong medical advice?

Church v Patient: Can a Pastor be sued for wrong medical advice?

Health & Wellbeing
The quest for urgent medical solutions is driving some patients from seeking standard medical solutions. Thus, instead of going to the hospital upon falling sick, they prefer to go to pastors, marabout,  traditional healers, prophets, seers, mallams, and prayer camps among others, with the expectation of getting total healing at any cost. Most of them, assert that orthodox medicines alone are not enough; they must be supplemented with anointing oils, counseling from pastors, herbal medicines, and other possible solutions. So when a patient seeks the services of a pastor for medical solutions, do these pastors lace the shoes of becoming ‘medical doctors’   or drugless healers or does the court still consider them as pastors performing their clerical duties?  Is th...

Four people were on Thursday found dead and nearly a dozen others hospitalised in Kenya’s coastal Kilifi county, after being rescued while waiting the imminent end of the world.

Don’t antagonise leadership of church — Catholic priest

Don’t antagonise leadership of church — Catholic priest

Ghana News
The Parish Priest of the St Kizito Catholic Church at Nima in the Accra Archdiocese, Very Rev. Fr Nicholas Larsey, has appealed to the societies within the church not to antagonise the leadership of the church in their bid to have their say in the management of the church. As Christians, he said, it was inappropriate for the parishioners to be fighting their priests over issues concerning the church. He said while Christians were encouraged to speak out when they saw any wrong in society, including the management of the church, that should be done without malice and in a decorous manner and not out of disrespect. Very Rev. Fr Larsey made the call at the plenary of the Accra East Regional Conference of the Noble Order of the Knights and Ladies of Marshall. The conference was du...

Man sets fire to church because his wife kept donating to it

Man sets fire to church because his wife kept donating to it

International, World News
Tired of seeing his family’s money being donated to the local church, an exasperated Russian man set the place of worship a blaze in a feat of rage. On the morning of June 26, a fire broke out at the Church of St. Basil the Great in the village of Pargolovo, Russia’s Saint Petersburg district. The fire quickly engulfed the wooden roof and walls of the building, and the entire place would have probably burned to a crisp until the firefighters arrived, if the parishioners didn’t put the fire out themselves. Still, the damage was considerable, and local news outlets reported that many of the locals had tears in their eyes as they looked at their local place of worship. But that sadness quickly turned to anger directed at the man responsible for the devastation. In the beginning, ...
