Biography :

Emmanuel Milingo (b. June 13, 1930) ,is a Zambian Roman Catholic archbishop. He is an excommunited Roman Catholic archbishop. Born and raised in Zambia, he currently resides in America.

Milingo was excommunicated in Sept. 2006 for defying the Vatican by installing four married men as priests.

    The 76-year-old Milingo has long had a troubled relationship with the Vatican. In 2001, he was married to a South Korean acupuncturist chosen for him by the Rev. Sun Myung Moon of the Unification Church, in a group wedding ceremony in New York. Upon appeal from Pope John Paul II a few months later, he renounced that union.

    Last summer, Milingo reappeared in the United States and said he was living with his wife in the Washington, D.C. area.

    He gained a strong following in a church where he had been stationed near Rome because of his reputation as an exorcist. But Catholic officials accused him of promoting African indigenous beliefs by performing mass exorcisms and healing ceremonies.
