Religion is truly the opium of the masses, and some people lose all sense when it comes to religious issues.
A Mozambican pastor died after fasting for 40 days in an attempt to break Jesus’ record on the biblical Mount of Olives.
On Wednesday, the death of Francisco Barajah, pastor and founder of the Santa Trindade Evangelical Church in Manica’s central province, was confirmed.
He died while receiving treatment at a hospital in Beira, from which he had been evacuated in critical condition.
He had lost so much weight after 25 days of fasting that he couldn’t stand up, bathe, or walk.
Days later, at the insistence of relatives and believers, he was taken to a hospital, but efforts to resuscitate him were futile.
Due to his extreme weight loss and disfigured body frame in recent days, believers at his church and his neighbors were unsurprised by the turn of events.
Social media users who came across this heartbreaking yet hilarious story chastised the pastor for causing his own stupid death.
