Kiwi politician under fire for comparing himself to Jesus

By Super Admin

Wellington, April 18 (ANI): North Shore Mayor Andrew Williams has come under fire for comparing himself to the Jesus on the cross.

A group of his colleagues will present him with a letter asking for his immediate resignation.

It is alleged that Williams urinated on a tree outside council offices after drinking at a Takapuna restaurant and wrote an email to councillors.

"Yes two blokes got cru-ci-fied this week ...and both will most cer-tainly rise from the dead to come back to haunt a few people!!" he wrote in the mail.

The email was sent on April 4, Easter Sunday, reports The New Zealand Herald News.

Catholic Diocese of Auckland spokeswoman Lyndsay Freer said Williams' comment was inappropriate.

"Jesus died for our sins, but he [Williams] appears to be crucified for his own." (ANI)
