No Vote, No Communion, Says Catholic Bishop

No doubt many will condemn this Nigerian Bishop for his "coercive" and "intimidating" approach, but would to God that Christian leaders everywhere took a serious approach in the face of "a noticeable lack of interest in politics" among members of their parishioners.

"The bishop is not only a firm believer in good Christian values, but he's also a firm believer in good citizenship and a good citizen must honor his or her civic obligations," Fr Obiora told the BBC.

"It is not enough to go to church and ignore your civic duties. Both go together and the church will be failing in her duties if she failed to emphasize that," he said. "We believe that a good Christian must also be a good citizen.”
