    That seat should not have existed and carried so much weight in the first place. The way leaders or not of whatever church live the high life and command the adoration they do-it is not right. Whatever happened to humility? True, churches need leaders. But the leading should be from within the crowd ; not from an exalted position – that position should be left for Him.Then everyone can sit next to everyone.

    Unfortunately the seat exists and worldly criteria ( that prohibit the listro and the Ethiopian singer) are used to fill that space. And even it is filled with seemingly the “right” people, it still would not be right.

    The ideal situation would be the patriarch and the singer sitiing somewhere in the crowd ( next to each other or not) ; and it should be considered as two Christians worshipping and nothing more.

    – a listro
    – an ethiopian singer

    because you told me not turn it into a joke, i will try my hardest to turn it into one.

    people should look up to Beyonce for cashing in on her ASSets.

    there; i tried.

    Is selling millions of albums a bad/ an easy thing? That needs some doing. If people want should want something to look up to, they can look up to that.

    What does that got to do with Christianity ?

    Although it is a tired argument, i must bring it up once again. If Jesus mingled and sat with all kinds of people , then why can’t the patriarch do the same?

    Did it do anything to glorify the pop culture?

    I think it is the other way round. Every single peson entering a church should be regarded as glorifying the church. And a “person of the world” like her going to church = the more the glory to the church.

    Where she sat should not matter and her presence should not be brought into question.

    i don’t know the tradition in detail. but if not affiliated with the church, anyone who sits there should be respectable and someone to look up to (don’t turn it to a joke now). what has she done? sell millions of albums. and what has that got to do with christianity? they could have given her a seat somewhere else. it doesn’t matter if she attracts attention. people who have come to look at her can help themselves.

    try again.

    according to a spokesperson?,the ceremony was an annual mass held to comemmmorate dearly departed fathers of the church and she just happened to be in town to attend it= it was not meant to celebrate her.

    I do not know if the church is specific about who can and can not sit next to the patriarch. And even if she was in the crowd she would have garnered more attention than him. So, it was wise that they should sit next to each other.
