Father Kelvin Ugwu, a radical Roman Catholic priest, has slammed the excessive display of money at Obi Cubana’s mother’s funeral, calling it an insult to throw money at people.
He claimed that there was no difference between throwing money and feeding animals based on the films he had seen, adding that even some animals have more decorum in eating than the stampede for money that was demonstrated during the funeral ritual in Oba, Anambra State, over the weekend.
Father Ugwu drawing an analogy with Jesus, The Christ, said that when he had the opportunity to help people, that the Lord did not throw bread and fish at them, but sat them down quietly and blessed them.
GreenWhiteGreen GWG reports that the Nigeria-born but Malawi-based radical priest and activist made the assertions on his Facebook page where he has a huge following. He, however, did so without mentioning Obi Cubana by name.
I know there are certain abnormalities that have become normal such that you dare not question them.
You may not agree with me and that is fine. But I will still say this. . .
It is very INSULTING to be THROWING monies on people while they SCRAMBLE to pick them.
It is what I keep saying. . . a mental problem, a void, someone seeking to show the other that he is above and superior.
There is a reason why that money cannot be given to the people in a way that will respect their dignity, . . .the reason is, it will not create that “show off” which the person spraying the money earnestly seeks to achieve.
I can only imagine how Christ fed 5,000 men. . . If you count children and women, I am sure they will be close to 15,000 to 20,000.
If it were the people of my generation, we would have been throwing fish and bread on the people and watch in excitement as they scramble for them.
Continuing without calling out Obi Cubana by name, he said:
Some of the videos I have been seeing coming from the funeral, there is no difference between what is there and how we feed animals. In fact, even some animals have dignified ways they collect their food.
Note: Have I said people should not spend their money? No! Have I called them money ritualistic? No! This is for those who are already planning to misunderstand the post.
