The Archbishop of the Church of Uganda has condemned the move by the speaker of parliament to visit a shrine.
This comes as Rebecca Kadaga is put on the spot for visiting her ancestral shrines over the weekend.
In a statement to the media his Grace Stanley Ntagali says the Church of Uganda condemns syncretism, urging the Bishops and clergy to use this opportunity to proclaim the sufficiency of Christ crucified to meet all people’s needs.
Religious syncretism exhibits blending of two or more religious belief systems into a new system, or the incorporation into a religious tradition of beliefs from unrelated traditions.
His Grace Ntagali says that while we value our ancestors, our trust must always be only in God.
He further appeals to all Christians, especially those serving in prominent positions in government and business to live above reproach and not to cause others to ‘stumble.
Kadaga has however defended her action saying she was promoting cultural tourism.
