Ignore Gadaffi, say Bishops

New Vision Online "Bishops have advised Ugandans to ignore Libyan leader Col. Muammar Gadaffi’s comments that the Bible was doctored and, therefore, fake.

The Bible is genuine and original and instead Gadaffi should do more research, the prelates insisted after a crisis meeting over the remarks yesterday.

The Uganda Joint Christian Council (UJCC), which represents the three mainstream churches: Catholic, Church of Uganda and the Orthodox, said it would issue a statement over the matter.

Speaking at Nakivubo Stadium on Wednesday, where he led thousands of Muslims who celebrated the birth of Prophet Muhammed, Gadaffi asserted that the Bible was not the one revealed to Jesus and the Old Testament was not the one which Moses received from Allah."
