el rufai insults christians

Feb 4, 2013 – Christian Association Of Nigeria, CAN On Offensive Jesus Tweets: “El-Rufai Must Be Brought To Justice For Insulting Christians”

The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, yesterday issued a fresh warning to a former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, over his unrepentant comments on the Christian faith.

The organisation said the ex-FCT minister should be brought “to justice on account of his incitement and insult against the Christian faith.”

CAN, which said that the former minister had declared war against millions of Christians in Nigeria, warned that it may not be able to guarantee further restraint the next time El-Rufai makes any derogatory comment against Jesus Christ.

A statement by the General- Secretary of CAN, Dr. Musa Asake, said barely 24 hours after its reaction to “his damningly insulting comment” about Jesus Christ, he never showed remorse, but retweeted as follows: “To those who see clearly, whose minds are not clouded by sheer religiosity, there is nothing insulting about the tweet.”

The statement reads in part, “CAN noted with serious concern the unrepentant and unremorseful conduct of the former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, in respect of the inflammatory and utterly disgraceful comment he made about the Christian faith and the person of Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

“Inspite of our warning that he should stop such comments that carry chains of implications, El-Rufai has gone ahead to post another response which is insulting to the Christian faith.

“Last Thursday, a day after our reaction to his damningly insulting comment, he retweeted as follows: “To those who see clearly, whose minds are not clouded by sheer religiosity, there is nothing insulting about the tweet.

“With this retweet, CAN believes that El- Rufai is set on a war path with the millions of Christians in Nigeria. We must state that unlike others, Christians do not shed blood, take life, kill or maim others at the slightest provocation.”

  5. CAN. Leave this man alone. Very soon,he will see the hand of God. Saul was like him,he condemn Jesus but he is name was later change to Paul. And if he refuse to change leave him to God himslf. Bible says we shouldnt Judge. Matthew7vs1. So leave let him continue. You dont need to take him to the judge of the earth rather take him to Jesus. And let him Jesus be the judge here. Jesus is Lord

  6. God will Judge elrufai he will soon die to face the Judgement so we as christian should calm down God is in control Jesus is for ever our savior.

  7. Whatever he meant, this man has no legal right to mention Jesus in his allegory. He is a confused & a frustrated man. He never knew he will leave the pleasures of public office. See all the nonsense he is writing in recent times. When he was eating in Obasanjo’s govt, where were all the nonsense’ he is writing then? He is a forgotten fool who’s desperately seeking for relevance & recognition, but alas! his own time is gone. Gone, never to be anything in Nigeria again. The more he writes all this nonsense,the more he fades away. What a pity! bcos he can not be resuscitated. Not long, his remains will be gathered & forgotten in the soil, never to be remembered that he ever lived in this part of the universe, bcos there is no legacy he could be remembered with.

  8. Our God do not nd us to fight 4 him He is a consume fire,He knw hw 2 deal with a defaulter.let be calm.

  9. Hahaha, u guys are 4ny, who among u saw d tweet? If really u saw it, den i think u lack adequate analytical ability bcos i see no any insultive word dia. Afterall el rufai blivs in jesus more dan any of 4 since d muslims are d true blivers of jesus as d do all wat he ask dan d christians.

    • Abdullahi u r mad wat r u sayin n wat do u mean? If u really bliv in d name Jesus Christ den y r u pple bhavin lyk donkeys? n dnt 1 peace instead u prefer pieces. Better bliv in Jesus oo b4 is 2 late 4 u pple, remember wen mohammed was diein he said he dnt knw where he is going 2 dat everybody should fyn his way datz y weneva u r prayin u will b askin God 2 show d 2rut way n Christ is d way cos our precious Lord promised 2 cm back n take us wit him so receive Christ 2 b ur Lord n personal Saviour is free so dat u can b serve. As 4 el-rufai we will nt ask God 2 punish him instead God should open his eyes 2 him n God should nt count dis in his sins cos he dnt knw wat his doin. el-rufai may God 4give n have mercy on u.
