We Need CVs from Politicians!
Marilyn Cheketri, Krugersdorp – Our bishops, as shepherds of the Church, have advised us to vote in the May 8 elections, but the country is not ready to vote.
None of the political parties have done anything to better South Africa in the past five years, and whatever party comes in will just do the same — nothing.
The economy is in a mess. And, of course, there is abortion: murder on demand. This is a sin of anger, hatred, and indifference. It will apply to all who vote, as no major party has opposed abortion.
The second temptation of Jesus in the wilderness was the devil’s offer of power and material wealth. By voting now, we would be giving politicians the power to do whatever they wanted — let politicians give us have CVs on what they will do before we vote, so we can see that they do it, or kick them out.
We need to do this the Catholic way: pray and put God in command. Then we shall have a country governed by love for the people.
Lord bishops, tell the government to postpone the elections until all CVs have been handed in.
We don’t want to know what the parties believe in; we want to know what the man who signs the documents believes in.
