Zimbabwean Prophets Using Violent Pop Culture To 'Sell' Christianity

Main Topix: Prophets Yasmin And Passion Java - World Wrestling Entertainment
Prophetess Yasmin JavaBut in this instance, it stands for World Wide Evangelism. As the prophets minister in the foreground, one sees The Rock and John Cena, popular wrestling characters looking on menacingly in the background of the poster. The wrestling theme is taken further with the R.A.W acronym – popularised again through WWE – appearing at the bottom of the poster. But of course in this instance, it stands for Revealing Appointed Word’. Even the logo of the WWE franchise appears in the poster, which makes the whole association between pugilism and piety more confusing, at least to me. Why would religious leaders want to use violent popular culture to convey a message of peace? Well, the ordinary observer wouldn’t get all this context just by looking at the poster. Personally, I feel that the logic behind all this is that such messaging is tailored to haul in the ‘faithless’ by appealing to their ‘worldliness’; that is, their ‘ravenous appetite for evil’ as shown through their addiction to wrestling and other pursuits . I find the whole conceptualisation behind this problematic; and...

Prophet Angel Sues Supersport for US $1,5 Million

Main Topix: Liverpool Football Club - Multichoice Zimbabwe
Prophet Angel Sues Supersport For US $1,5 MillionSpirit Embassy Church leader Prophet Uebert Angel has slapped South African media company SuperSport with a US$1,5 million lawsuit over an article published on the firm’s website predicting Liverpool Football Club as this year’s winner of the English Premiership League title. Prophet Angel’s standing in society as a religious leader, according to the court papers, derives its foundations on the visions he receives from God and attributing to him prophecies he did not make has an effect of demeaning him. It is argued that Prophet Angel might lose his followers as a result of the “false” story. Prophet Angel, in the summons, cited SuperSport and the owners –MIH Group — as defendants. The summons were served on SuperSport’s agent in Zimbabwe, Skynet (Pvt) Ltd, which trades as Multichoice Zimbabwe. Although the defendants are foreign entities, Prophet Angel’s lawyers argue that the High Court has jurisdiction to preside over the case....

Prophet Angel suing SuperSport over alleged prediction

Main Topix: Prophet Angel And Prophet Emmanuel Makandiwa - Finance Minister Tendai Biti
A controversial religious leader from Zimbabwe is once again in the headlines, this time for suing a sports company that published a report claiming he had predicted the English team Liverpool would win the Premiership title this season. Prophet Uebert Angel, the popular so-called spirit preacher and founder of Spirit Embassy Church in Zimbabwe, has reportedly sued SuperSport for $1.5 million, insisting he never made the prediction and the report was therefore defamatory. The article at the centre of the row, which was published in late December 2013, is no longer available on the SuperSport website. But according to a report on the AllAfrica.com news site, Prophet Angel claims the article “has put his reputation in jeopardy”, and he “risks losing followers as a result”. Liverpool last won the English title in 1990, just before the Premiership title was established and are currently one of the top four teams battling for the title. They were once a force to be reckoned with, having won the English league title 18 times. Prophet Angel is himself no stranger to headlines. Last month...

Main Topix: English Premier League - South African
A LOCAL prophet has launched a $1.5 million legal claim against a South African sports broadcaster after it claimed he had predicted that Liverpool would win this season's English Premier League, it was reported on Wednesday. Despite the fact that Liverpool are currently second in the league with just 10 games to play, Spirit Embassy Church leader, Uebert Angel, denies ever making the claim. He says his reputation will be damaged if they do not win the title. "The plaintiff claims the sum of $1,500,000 considering his character and stature as a prophet with great following... He says he is entitled to compensation as it would be "difficult to rehabilitate completely a reputation even if it is proved in court that the statement was misguided...". Angel said that Johannesburg-based Supersport published the story on its website last December. SuperSport broadcasts live English Premier League matches in several African countries. The league enjoys a big following, where fans place bets and congregate at bars to follow their teams. Although Liverpool have won 18 league titles, the last of these was in...
