Speaking to Angop,  the source spoke of the need to adopt a Law banning this phenomenon, which, according to him, undermines social morality.

He said that family division makes each member to choose his/her religious denomination, with different doctrinal and theological principles.

As result, he added, this option can lead to disagreement among family members, including   some couples or children split up.

Eduardo de Almeida Chitungo said that in spite of religious freedom, enshrined in Constitution, it is necessary to always question the social goal and teachings of each Church to be created, in order to avoid disorder in society, due to fundamentalism.

Therefore, he defended the need for an urgent and timely creation of a legal diploma that regulate the phenomenon of religious proliferation in Angola.
