Lesotho Reforms should, without fail, christianize this nation

Current state religions[edit]

Currently, the following religions have been established as state religions in some countries. All are versions of Christianity, Islam or Buddhism.

Christian countries[edit]

The following states recognize some form of Christianity as their state or official religion (by denomination):

Roman Catholicism[edit]

Jurisdictions where Roman Catholicism has been established as a state or official religion:

  •  Costa Rica: article 75 of the constitution of Costa Rica confirms that “The Roman Catholic and Apostolic Religion is the religion of the State, which contributes to its maintenance, without preventing the free exercise in the Republic of other forms of worship that are not opposed to universal morality or good customs.”[5]
  •  Liechtenstein: the constitution of Liechtenstein describes the Catholic Church as the state religion and enjoying “the full protection of the State”. The constitution does however ensure that people of other faiths “shall be entitled to practise their creeds and to hold religious services to the extent consistent with morality and public order.”[6]
  •  Malta: Article 2 of the Constitution of Malta declares that “the religion of Malta is the Roman Catholic Apostolic Religion”[7]
  •  Monaco: article 9 of the constitution of Monaco describes “La religion catholique, apostolique et romaine” [the catholic, apostolic and Roman religion]” as the religion of the state.[8]
  •   Vatican City: the Vatican is an Elective, Theocratic, or sacerdotal Absolute Monarchy[9] ruled by the Pope, who is also the Vicar of the Catholic Church. The highest state functionaries are all Catholic clergy of various national origins. It is the sovereign territory of the Holy See (Latin: Sancta Sedes) and the location of the Pope’s official residence, referred to as the Apostolic Palace.

Jurisdictions that give various degrees of recognition in their constitutions to Roman Catholicism without establishing it as the state religion:

Eastern Orthodoxy[edit]

The jurisdictions below give various degrees of recognition in their constitutions to Eastern Orthodoxy, but without establishing it as the state religion:

  •  Greece: The Church of Greece is recognized by the Greek Constitution as the prevailing religion in Greece.[16] However, this provision does not give official status to the Church of Greece, while all other religions are recognized as equal and may be practiced freely.[17] Therefore, this provision is considered a dead letter and can only be interpreted as a nationalistic historical remnant.
  •  Georgia: Georgian Orthodox Church is not the state church of Georgia but has a special constitutional agreement with the state, with the constitution recognising “the special role of the Apostolic Autocephalous Orthodox Church of Georgia in the history of Georgia and its independence from the state.”[18] (See also Concordat of 2002)
  •  Bulgaria: in the Bulgarian Constitution, the Bulgarian Orthodox Church is recognized as “the traditional religion” of the Bulgarian people, but the state itself remains secular.

Protestantism[edit]

Anglicanism[edit]

The Anglican Church of England is the established church in the England as well as all three of the Crown Dependencies.

Calvinism[edit]
  •  Tuvalu: The Church of Tuvalu is the state religion, although in practice this merely entitles it to “the privilege of performing special services on major national events”.[22] The Constitution of Tuvalu guarantees freedom of religion, including the freedom to practice, the freedom to change religion, the right not to receive religious instruction at school or to attend religious ceremonies at school, and the right not to “take an oath or make an affirmation that is contrary to his religion or belief”.[23]
  •  Scotland: The Church of Scotland is recognized as the national church of Scotland, but is not a state church and thus differs from the Church of England. Its constitution, which is recognised by acts of the British Parliament, gives it complete independence from the state.
Lutheranism[edit]

Jurisdictions where a Lutheran church has been established as a state religion include the Nordic countries.

  •  Denmark: section 4 of the Constitution of Denmark confirms the Church of Denmark as the state church.[24]
  •  Iceland: the Constitution of Iceland confirms the Church of Iceland as the state church of Iceland.[25]
  •  Norway: the Constitution of Norway stipulates that “The Church of Norway, an Evangelical-Lutheran church, will remain the Established Church of Norway and will as such be supported by the State.”[26] This was amended in 2012, from “Evangelical-Lutheran religion remains the public religion of the State”. The church is granted autonomy in doctrine and appointment of bishops.[27][28][29] A bill passed in 2016 creates the Church of Norway as an independent legal entity from 1 January 2017.[30][31] The Church of Norway will still obtain financial support from the state of Norway, but is no longer the official state religion and is no longer a state civil service agency.[32]
  •  Finland: the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Finland has a special relationship with the Finnish state, its internal structure being described in a special law, the Church Act.[33] The Church Act can be amended only by a decision of the synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church and subsequent ratification by the Parliament of Finland. The Church Act is protected by the Constitution of Finland and the state can not change the Church Act without changing the constitution. The church has a power to tax its members and all corporations unless a majority of shareholders are members of the Finnish Orthodox Church. The state collects these taxes for the church, for a fee. On the other hand, the church is required to give a burial place for everyone in its graveyards.[34] The President of Finland also decides the themes for intercession days. The church does not consider itself a state church, as the Finnish state does not have the power to influence its internal workings or its theology, although it has a veto in those changes of the internal structure which require changing the Church Act. Neither does the Finnish state accord any precedence to Lutherans or the Lutheran faith in its own acts. The Union of Freethinkers of Finland has criticized the official endorsement of the two churches by the Finnish state, and has campaigned for the separation of church and state.[35]
  •  Sweden: the Church of Sweden was until 2000 the official state church of Sweden, and Lutheranism was therefore the state religion of Sweden. In spite of the separation between the state and the church in 2000, the Church of Sweden still has a special status in Sweden. Sweden is therefore often seen as a midway between having a state religion and not. The church has its own legal regulation in the 1998 Church of Sweden Act, which regulates the church’s basic structure, creeds and right to tax members of the church. According to the Act, the Church of Sweden must be a democratic, Lutheran people’s church. Only the Swedish Riksdag can change this fact. The connections to the Swedish royal family are complicated. For example, the Swedish constitution stipulates that the Monarch of Sweden must be a true Lutheran, accepting the doctrine of the Church of Sweden. All members of the royal house must accept the same doctrine to be able to inherit the Throne of Sweden. The parishes of the Church of Sweden were the smallest administrative entities in Sweden and were used as civil registration and taxation units until 1 January 2016.[36]

This is exactly what MOAFRIKA has and is advocating on behalf of the victims of 1970

If government of Lesotho continues to shut their ears on the plight of the victims of the 1970-74 State of Emergency  (Qomatsi) atrocities, we shall have no option but to take them to the international court.

Following is the model of what we have always proposed and continue to propose, not only for the victims of Qomatsi, but of 98 years of British rule, that has destroyed the very fabric of Basotho as a people, as well.

UNPRECEDENTED PROPOSED LAW PROVIDES AFRICAN AMERICANS REPARATIONS AND OPPORTUNITIES TO BETTER THEIR LIVES

John Cheeks submits proposed legislation to DC Board of Elections


John Cheeks submits proposed legislation to DC Board of Elections

Washington, DC (BlackNews.com) — On February 10, 2017, proposed legislation was submitted to the DC Board of Elections. It is a model for legislators to provide opportunities for previous slave owners, and those that participated in enslavement of African Americans families to make amends.

The proposed legislation submitted by John Cheeks, head of the United States Citizens Recovery Initiative Alliance Inc. (USCRIA), is the first legislation to provide benefits, at no cost to the taxpayers. It is also an opportunity for individual families, industries, businesses, faith based institutions, governments and others to be held accountable.

The Legislation will help descendants of American Slaves, many of whom live in poor, underserved, and high crime areas in the United States. The benefits are not handouts, and differ from other historical reparations, such as those given to Japanese citizens entered during WW II and Native Americans.

The benefits include:

1. Aid to businesses
2. Providing educational opportunities
3. Improving Health
4. Providing Mental Health, Alcohol and Substance Abuse care
5. Housing Ownership
6. Financial Protection
7. Veterans Rights
8. Credit Acceptance
9. Career Rights

Cheeks comments, “All benefits are designed to improve life for individuals, families and communities. In doing so, the nation benefits.”

His proposal is that these benefits will be paid by major U.S. and international corporations and foreign governments which fostered and participated in slave trade. Budgets are being prepared for distribution of funds collected from those entities that participated in some way with slavery. Eligibility criteria have been proposed which include proof by DNA testing. Those claiming benefits must be 40% descendants of slaves, and born in the United States.

Distribution of the benefits has been proposed, in part, to be based on DC Ward populations. Further details are being studied and are schedule to be submitted to the Board of Elections the end of this month. This is necessary for the initiative to be on the November, 2017 ballot for the public to vote if such an initiative should be enacted into law.

The proposed law, the DC Recovery Act, objective is to restore identities, cure injuries and provide opportunities and justice to families that were subjected to inhumane treatment.

The proposed legislation was drafted over a year, by a team of experts and citizens working with USCRIA, and was submitted to the DC Board or Elections, on the same date as the United States Congress initiated the Fugitive Slave Law on February 12, 1793.

For the complete text of the proposed legislation, go to www.uscria.com/legislation.html

Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa: Welcome of former exiled Lesotho opposition political party leaders

13 Feb 2017

Transcript: SADC facilitator and Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa’s remarks at the press conference to welcome the three former exiled Lesotho opposition political party leaders, Maseru

“We don’t have a lot of time as leaders here have to go to a rally. It suffices just to say that we are here as Southern African Development Community (SADC) to welcome the leaders back. Ntate [Tom] Thabane, Ntate [Thesele] Masiribane and Mme Keke [Keketso Rantso], we welcome them back”, said Facilitator and Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa.

“This is in fulfilment of a decision that was taken by the SADC Troika in June last year when it said that it would be desirable that the three leaders of the opposition parties should come back to Lesotho.They had left under circumstances which had compelled them to leave, but the SADC Troika leaders felt that notwithstanding all that, it would be a desirable thing if they came back and they therefore asked the Facilitator to assist in the process of getting them back to Lesotho” continued Deputy President Ramaphosa.

He further said “Today we are overjoyed that the leaders are now here. They are here to continue playing their role as leaders of the people of Lesotho, leaders of the various political parties that they leader and also leaders in the opposition in parliament.

Lesotho has a proud history of democracy, and in our view it is important that all political players’, particularly political parties and the leaders here should play their key role that they were elected for in parliament”.

“What they were concerned about was their security situation and we have been involved in discussions with the government. And the government has given assurance that yes the leaders will be secured. The Lesotho Mounted Police Service will provide them with security.

That has given us a great deal of assurance and satisfaction that peace and stability will continue to be enhanced with the leaders present here. We therefore expect that as the political process unfolds in Lesotho, they will play their key role”, continued Deputy President Ramaphosa.

“One of the key issues that SADC looks forward to is the implementation of the Phumaphi Commission report and we look forward to all the various proposals that were put forward by Judge Phumaphi to be implemented.

One of those is that the investigation into the passing away of Brigadier Mahao should be done. We now know that General [Tlali] Kamoli has been removed he has gone into retirement. That is the fulfillment of the Phumaphi report recommendations. But the investigation needs to be done”, further said Deputy President Ramaphosa.

“The other important one is the whole process of constitutional and security reforms. We had thorough going discussions with the Prime Minister and the Deputy Prime Minister that these discussions, these processes need to be inclusive.

They need to be processes that will involve the various formations in Lesotho. Not only political parties but organs of civil society, faith based organisations and all manner of other organisations but more importantly the people of Lesotho themselves.

They reiterated they request that they would like SADC to assist them in this whole process. So SADC is now going to be much more firmly involved in assisting them”, said Deputy President Ramaphosa.

“The various countries in the region will get involved in giving assistance, guidance, advice and sharing our own experiences in fostering all these.

Lesotho now needs to get to grips with its own future in terms of dealing with the constitutional reforms, dealing with the security reforms, so that peace and stability can be further assured but more importantly that the political process can be further stabilized so that the situation in Lesotho does not need and require outsiders to come to play any role that the Basotho people should be able to drive the whole political process in their own country.

With those words I welcome the three leaders and we are very pleased that they are back home.

SADC is very satisfied that they are here”, concluded Deputy President Ramaphosa.

Thank you very much.

Thabane spotted at Queen ‘Mamohato Memorial Hospital

Monday, February 13, 2017: Dr Motsoahae Thabane, leader of the All Basotho Covention party was today, spotted at the QMMH. It is not yet clear why the  78 year old politician was at the country’s only referral hospital.

After a rapturous WELCOME RALLY of the veteran politician together with two others, Thesele ‘Maseribane and Ms Keketso Rantso upon their return from self-imposed exile in South Africa, Thabane and ‘Maseribane are alleged to have made a sudden return, back to South Africa. They didn’t spend the night in Lesotho. Their followers were not advised on the surprise return.

Mr Serialong Qoo, Minister of Communications and government spokesman and Mr Samonyane Ntsekele, secretary general of the All Basotho Convention party shall Tuesday morning, be on Lephola la MOAFRIKA talk-show to discuss the matter. RK.
