10 controversial statements by counsellor Lutterodt
Popular radio and television relationship counsellor, Reverend George Lutterodt, is in the news again, after asking people who disagree with him not to insult him
Mr Lutterodt has come under intense criticism in recent days for calling on women not to marry men who cannot take care of them.
In an interview with Graphic Showbiz, he suggested that a lot of those criticisms have been informed by poor media reportage.
“I am just warning those who are speaking loosely to be careful of what they say. If you quote me verbatim, I am ok, but if you misquote me, then you are bringing the wrath of God over your life,” he said.
The marriage counsellor said he had to call one blogger to apologise and retract some "lies" written about him
"I think that people must learn that we do not insult. Many say I am harsh but I believe I am straightforward and passionate about what I do,” he added.
