Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria has said that the church should be let alone, insisting that it only reports to God.
In a statement after a Church Association blasted the head of state over his remarks in Sagana on Wednesday, the MP said nothing qualifies political leaders to pass judgement on the church.
Kuria said that God doesn't need the help of man to punish church leaders, in case they are wrong.
"Assume the Church is wrong, what qualifies earthly mortals like political leaders to stand judgement ? Let the Church be. If they are wrong they report to God Almighty and he doesn't need our help to punish them. Ilianza na roho ikiaishia na mwili," he said.
The legislator's remarks came after the Clergy Association of Kenya asked President Uhuru Kenyatta to respect the churches and stop disparaging them.
President Uhuru Kenyatta had attacked religious leaders for receiving money from corrupt leaders and helping in spreading political lies.
Uhuru further told off the clergy who have been receiving donations from corrupt leaders saying they are destined to go to hell.
The Association demanded answers from the President about who the thieves he was talking about are and why the loot has not been recovered.
"We demand to know the thieves the president talked about. Who are they? Why is the loot not being recovered from the churches where it has been donated to?" National Executive Board CCAK posed.
