Here’s the church that removes six lower teeth from its members to help God identify them easily in heaven


The Legio Maria Church, an African-initiated church among the Luo people of western Kenya, believes its members are the only ones destined for heaven. To help God easily identify them in heaven and avoid going to hell, they remove six lower teeth from their members.

Baba Simeo Lodvikus Melkio, regarded as the eternal spiritual leader and mediator of Legio Maria, is worshiped as a black messiah, with claims that he is Jesus Christ reincarnated in African skin.

The practices of the Legio Maria movement bear similarities to Catholicism, particularly in their veneration of Mary as ‘queen’ and ‘mother’.

The practice of removing six lower teeth to help God identify members in heaven has sparked widespread condemnation and skepticism among netizens. Some reactions include:

  • @Jompe Ola-Vincent Godwin: “If God has blessed you with common sense, always endeavour to thank and praise Him all the time… Because common sense is expected for every man to have, but millions don’t have it.”
  • @Anthony Etok: “Some people’s sicknesses are beyond medication, and not everyone you see is normal.”
  • @Faramade Omowumi: “Only God knows who did this to Africa. I hope the man of the yeye god also removed his own teeth; if not, they should force him and use a hammer to remove it.”
