Even if you’re not a soccer fan, when the World Cup is being played in your home country and the games are on TV, it’s pretty damn fun to watch.
Definitely better than watching a religious program on TV.
61-year-old David Makoeya felt that way during the recent Germany/Australia match. He wanted to watch the game instead of hearing the gospel.
His family said no. And they meant it.
“He said, ‘No, I want to watch soccer,”’ police spokesman Mothemane Malefo said Thursday. “That is when the argument came about.
“In that argument, they started assaulting him.”
Malefo said Makoeya got up to change the channel by hand after being refused the remote control and was attacked by his 68-year-old wife Francina and two children, 36-year-old son Collin and 23-year-old daughter Lebogang.
They beat him to death.
So they could watch a religious program.
Does anyone else see the irony in the tragedy…?
(Maybe his family just didn’t want to hear the vuvuzelas…?)
Ok, no jokes. This is awful. It’s just more evidence that religion doesn’t make you a better, kinder, more decent human being. I’m not suggesting that religion was the direct cause of this death, but the people who killed the father were religious and they attacked him over a show that talked about Jesus…
That’s just messed up.
