Today, I was doing what I do when I'm bored and can't sleep. No, not watching pr0n. Perv! I was going through our sitemeter stats and I found this blog. I was talking about how hard it is to find openly gay Nigerians on twitter the other day. The girl* that runs the blog is gay or queer, I don't know the appropriate term so excuse my ignorance.
I admire her.
I wish I was that brave. Knowing how homophobic most Nigerians are, coming out publicly is a very ballsy move. I have my own history of homophobia so I'm not going to claim I was always down with the cause. I used to think gay people were less than human until I actually met a gay person in the flesh. He was human like me, he went through the same shit I went I did. He hated homework too. Who wudda thunk it?
A friend showed me this video of a gay pastor in Nigeria. I would embed it but "Embedding disabled by request". The same friend also told me the church was burnt down by Nigerians. I am not going to sit here and claim I know what is wrong or right but I think people should be judged based on their character and not who or what they are attracted to.
The video comments are in typical outraged Nigerian style: poorly punctuated and vicious.
How come u call urself a pastor wen u r leading many souls to hell.repent, preach d truth,win souls for Christ n stop these ur nti-christ preaching.i hope u remember vividly well in d Bible about what happened 2 Sodom n Ghomorah.so jst dont let d anger of God be upon u n those dat follow u in misleading children of God n for turning The Bible upside down.Read this book"4 HOURS INTERVIEW IN HELL". Please repent n be saved!!!!!!!!!!
Leviticus chapter 18 vs 22, 1 corinthians chapter 6 vs 9, Romans chapter 1 vs 26, all diz verses 4rm d bible strongly criticized same sex union. Pastor Rowland Jide Macaulay, or what eva u are been called, u must be a liar & full of deciet 2 claim u love GOD & still lie abt his scriptures, just 2 mak a way 4 ur lustful emotions. If u continue in dis heinous act & fail 2 accept GOD wholeheartedly, u are gonna burn in hell!!
God Punish You, you are a false prophet.
The Bible says: LEV 18:22 "THOU SHALT NOT LIE WITH MANKIND AS WITH WOMANKIND IT IS AN ABOMINATION!
Seen as you are a theologist, explain the scripture above. PLEASE.
I wish I could explain homosexuality but I can't. However, I know this much: being gay is not a choice.
Now I'm done with the serious, we can get back to the funnay
*UPDATE: The blog is run by a girl not a dude. The picture with the beard threw me off. My apologies. Thanks Ife & Miss Fizzy
