    Presbyterian, Baptist & Catholic churches call for government to shut down some Pentecostal churches!

    There are calls for the Cameroon government to shut down some of the country's Pentecostal churches. This is based on reports of a pastor who stole from his congregation and another who allegedly impregnated seven women.

    Protestant, Baptist and Catholic churches are calling on the government to shut down some of the country's Pentecostal churches after reports of unethical and criminal behavior by several pastors.

    It is alleged that one Pentecostal pastor impregnated seven women in his congregation. Another pastor, now wanted by Interpol, is believed to have fled Cameroon after embezzling more than $500,000 (€407,300) from his followers.

    Concerns over the Pentecostal church and its methods are not new in Cameroon. Back in August 2013, President Paul Biya ordered over 100 churches to be closed on the grounds of criminal practices organized by Pentecostal pastors. It was alleged that pastors were taking advantage of poor and desperate people. Despite a government crackdown, and the fact that no new churches have been approved by Cameroonian authorities since then, unauthorized churches have continued to spring up.
