Wrong choice of words from a man of God

The priest at St Luke Anglican Church, Akwakuma, Owerri, Rev. Ogechi Ofurum blames women for wearing tight clothes and tempting men...

Rev Ogechi Opurum said:
“The type of skimpy clothes ladies wear nowadays is appalling. Clothes that children of 10 and 11 years wear have now become the fashion of adults of 18 years and above. Those clothes are so tight on them that every part of their body shows, thereby provoking men to force themselves on them."
Is he justifying rape? There are other ways he could have made his point. Rape is a sadistic act and there's absolutely no excuse for it.

Oh please! There is no justification for rape. A matured man should be able to control his sexual urge not to turn into rape.

i totally agree wt u linda. Evry1 shud strive t get some measure of self control especially when it comes t sex.

★★PRINCE CHARMING™★★ said...

Blame the man who can't control himself and not the girl wearing what she wants.

So in countries where women cover head to toe and get raped still, what's the cause? Devil? That priest should be brought in for questioning. A lawless man is a lawless man. Tight clothes or otherwise!

Linda your getting offended for nothing....plus ur assumptions don't make any sense.
The man was simply trying to pass across the point that you shouldn't wear such revealing stuff..whether it is right or wrong some women get raped for that and its in your own interest to heed nobody is justifying anything.

Anonymous said...

'Anyone who justifies rape is a potential rapist' I couldn't have said it better myself. We live in a society that blames women for an act perpetrated by men. Its disgusting. Fully clothed women have been raped too. That's why men keep raping and getting away with it, they never get blamed for the act.

zizzy said...

Haba!!! am sure he didn't mean it in dat context ooo......he wuz just pointing out what he feels is one of d causes of rape. Aunty Linda e so ara re

be very carefull about "CHALLENGING" the word of GOD!!!

missy said...

I wudnt say he was justifying rape. I agree a man shud learn to control himself.but ladies shud also avoid unwanted incidences Eg,look @ dat Rihanna's c thru dress,a drunken guy can jst make 4 d naked breasts....n whose fault wud dat be?hers of course.

Francis Okoduwa said...

I'd say dress to attract not distract . It totally doesnt justify rape cos obviously nobody can justify rape buh if females of these days can atleast dress decent it can help atleast. Any female who dresses to distract n attracts rape upon herself then she has herself to blame ,My opinion francisruff.blogspot.com

he's not justifying rape...he's only giving a very important reason why people are tempted to rape..God help us all

D1 said...

I sincerely dont think he is justifying rape at at. Rape is evil and any rapist is an animal and should be dealt with. However it takes two to tango. Some ladies dress in a very provocative way that should also be corrected. A lady who walks on d street exposing her body invites trouble, because there r lots of sick and phyco men out there who will mean it for something else. I believe that is what d Rev Father was trying to say.

Some rape cases were not caused by provocative dressing. A rapier will rape regardless. But a little caution in d way some ladies dress will help too. They call it fashion, but its madness. I HOPE THE GOVERNMENT CAN PASS A STIFFER PENALTY AGAINST RAPISTS. Together we should do what we hv to do, to stop this evil.

Precious. said...

Linda the pastor is not justifying rape, but telling ladies to be decent in their dressing. Ladies feel they are hot and beautiful when they dress half naked, which is not so. Beauty of a lady comes from within.

Anonymous said...

I see nothing wrong with what he said...it's just the truth and as a man of God nothing is wrong with speaking the truth...He is just advising the female sex to mind what they wear to avoid temptating the opposite sex'

Our men in naija have very babaric attitudes towards sex. We women have to stand up and fight against this babarism by changing our own attitudes. We can not support this thinking anymore no matter how 'holy' you think you are. It is this same reason that child molesters use. They even rape old women as well. We have to stand against this now for the sake of our daughters

Truly sick pastor. What about those that rape babies and children? Where the babies were skimpy clothes. Yes, some women take the piss by wearing crap but that is no justification for rape. A rapist is a rapist!!!Even if a girl is wearing tshirt and wrapper and idiot can still decide to rape her...We have idiots in this country.Just open their mouth and be spewing crap!

Rape is terible bt everyman doesn't av dsme level of control.so avoid d ones u can,n dose u dnt cause,let d God n d law judge

Its so so sad that the Nigerian culture tends to justify rape. Imagine someone saying its okay for a lady to get raped just cos she dresses in wat make her comfortable.

ken morgan said...

Linda, its better said than done, I strongly advice you not to dress in such provocative way to avoid matters that touch, once its done, can't be reversed. don't tempt these men that can't control themselves, even you and the law can't reverse a rape act after it has been done. DRESS DECENTLY.

Anonymous said...

We all live with the assumption that everyone around us are normal. This is a grievous mistake we shouldn't make. Dressing in an indesent manner can lead to catastrophic consequences. A pervert or an emotionally unstable person might take advantage of the situation and this may lead to sexual harassment and rape. We all need to be careful. Men and women get raped.

no he's not justifying rape. he's just saying it the way it is. but then again, i bliv rapist most times care less about what the lady is wearing. what a rapist will do to a half naked girl in the dark is what he will do to a nun!!! just that some dresses make it easier for them.

This is part of the reason Nigeria/ africa as a whole will continue to stay stagnant!
When you've people of authority that fail to speak intelligently, so because a woman decides to wear a form fitting attire means that I as a guy should force my self on her because of lack of self control?!
Geez, I am so embrassed at the crap that some our so called leaders spew out of their mouths..
So in essence, the cleric is saying that a person with a nice car that gets jacked was the cause of the theft because they own a nice ride?! Attached is a quote that summarizes my thougts...
"Identify the dominant philosophy of a society & you can predict its future"- Ayn Rand

Anonymous said...

Rape does occur in Sharia countries where women are over modestly dressed up. I don't see skimpy clothes to compare with what ladies wore in the 60s and 70s. I believe tho that the way u are dressed determiness how u'll b addressed. So ladies let's try and be modest and look decent in what we wear. But what I wear shud not b an excuse for rape. IAI

Anonymous said...

Linda I don't think his statement justifies rape. Lewd dressing is provocative, let us be realistic. It does not mean the rapist is justified by any means. They are both crimes - dressing slutty and rape, non justifies or exonerates the other. And i am a woman.

As men we are visual beings therefore a rapist is attracted to the easiest prey which is a woman who is skimpy. These are not issues to be preached about anyway, they are left to common sense. Just preach modest because a rapist will rape even a nun. Look at rape cases in India- newyorker

But because he's a man, he's a potential rapist? Can you see the double standards. No one is justifying rape. Far from it! He's just pointing out the fact that skimpy clothing does more harm than good concerning the issue of rape.

Linda this is the first time that i am disappointed by your story. The priest was never in anyway justifying rape, he only made it known that indecent exposure by ladies are one of the causes of rape. Which is a very simple exampke to present to people living in the east especially owerri where you have plenty of youths cos of the number of higher institutions in owerri town. Pls rephrase your story or better still remove it. Dont rubbish a man of God just to make stories. Ensure you publish this or you remove the story.

mccoy said...

well, truly dia is no justification for rape, but den d MOG is right!!! Until we start tellin ourselves d truth about indecent dressing instead of advocating freedom to dress however we please, d issue of rape would remain as rampant as d air we breath

Anonymous said...

Actually there is nowhere in the pastor's statement where he mentioned rape. Even some women share this point. "You are what you wear" isn't an adage coined out of lustful thoughts,it simply describes that any one who presents himself/herself in a particular way would be judged to be that way.

Being judgmental isn't good, and we are all icebergs. But responsible fashion has been thrown out of the window thanks to a media that glorifies are tainted form of beauty.

I don't like talking about rape, because the underground stats about those who have been sexually assaulted is quite alarming. It is extremely wicked to force a woman to have sex with you. But how many women have been forced into having sex by men who use their money, power, position, blackmail etc.. to buy the consent of a woman.

We must protect our women, they are givers and takers of life. Their bodies are capable of giving life, joy, pain and regret. Their heart carries all the virtues that make or mar the lives of everyone connected to them, even their seeds. They are the soil upon which our future is planted. Its fertility and climate will frame the very essence of our tomorrow.

Protection from damaging the female folk just like protection from a terminal disease must be wholesome. We must create a society that actively stands up for the female folk. But heaven helps those who help themselves. The same goes for the woman.

USELESS REASONING. a rapist is a rapist. you dont see EVERY guy raping any woman they see who's wearing skimpy clothes.. and there were still rapists when it was the norm for a woman to be covered completely. Some men are just dogs disguised as priests and pastors. religion will eventually be our downfall because it promotes the loss of rational thought, and expects us to put reasoning in the hands of illiterates and literates with emotional issues from years of praying to a god that nobody has seen

1ST: HE DIDN'T JUSTIFY RAPE.

3RD: YES, WOMEN DRESS PROVOCATIVELY NOWADAYS FOR REASONS BEST KNOWN TO THEM BUT I THINK MAJORITY OF THEM ARE DEMON POSSESSED.

4TH: YES YOU ARE RIGHT, DRESSING PROVOCATIVELY DOES NOT MEAN ONE SHOULD BE HARASSED, ABUSED OR RAPED.

5TH: SOME WHO CLAIM THAT SUCH BEHAVIOR BRINGS RAPISTS TO THEM IS FACTUALLY RIGHT. THERE ARE SO MANY PSYCHOS WALKING AROUND AND IT IS SAFER FOR A WOMAN TO DISCOURAGE THE RAPIST INSTEAD OF ENCOURAGING THEM THROUGH BAITING AND HOPING THAT HE MAY BE CAUGHT. THE TRUTH IS HE MAY NOT BE CAUGHT AND THE WOMAN MAY BE DEAD BY THE END OF THE DAY. IT IS LIKE SOMEONE PREACHING THE GOSPEL IN A BOKO HARAM INFESTED PLACE LIKE ZAMFARA AND WHEN HE IS ATTACKED AND BEHEADED, YOU WILL COME AND SAY THERE IS NO JUSTIFICATION FOR BEHEADING HIM.

There's nothing wrong in what he said,its good to say it the way it is instead of beating around the bush,putting up holier than thou attitude.Besides Linda mind what you post,be sure of what u write because anglicans are not addressed as priests but rev,pastor and e.t.c

So if a man sees his mother or daughter in a towel he should be 'enticed' abi?
Please stop making excuses for these sick people.
A rapist will rape even if the woman is wearing sackcloth. Rape is a horrible act and should not be condoned

Hey u must be mad!go bck 2 the 14th century and remain dere.u potential rapist.

So you're saying in the olden days when women used to be fully covered there was no issue of rape?
Please stop excusing this act.
Its wrong and that's all there is to it. I don't care if the girl was naked. Do you even know what rape is?
The victim is forced and sometimes even dies and you're making excuses for these people?
Please take several seats

Ur obviously a useless person weren't men raping in the 17th century where every 1 was all covered. Men r just dogs. The men that rape just monsters its in their DNA. No is no just because women are weaker and cannot slap your brains out of your skulls doesn't mean they should be raped. Its not a bad thing to be sexy men shouldn't make females feel they should be scared always

Linda since you ve decided not to publish my opinion, I rest my case. But the truth is that you,misinterpreted the priest and you can see all the abuses you have drawn to the man of God. Some of your readers can be gullible and you should not lead them astray

ikunkun said...

Shut the hell up!!stupid people you lot, starting with mr odenson bonario!! on here justifying rape saying its the way women dress....okay lets refer to the main cases of rape in the Bible....when David's son raped his half sister?? did it have anything to do with the way the girl was dressed??...was it not that the guy was consumed/obessed by his sister's beauty?? or is it the case of the man that raped jacob's daughter when she went to get water?? what was she wearing? please tell me...all these half baked pastors that don't study the Word before giving stupid advice they call preaching....Linda abeg keep bringing these issues up until these stupid animals that call themselves African men listen up!!

A lot of women who are raped are fully clothed.
While there is truth to what he said, the problem here is that many times, we get culture mixed in with talk, and it affects the output, so there is a huge disconnect with what was thought and what is actually said.

The best thing for the Rev to have done was to said this, and at the same time, spoken against rape.

Many women are raped by people close to them, close friends, and family members even.

There is no reason behind rape, and any man here saying so, please I pray that no woman close to you is ever raped. Whether by armed robbers, while "safely" at home, or by someone that you know.

Why r some pple so angry wit themselves n tinz around them? The Revd made a good point and for the case of clarity, there are so many reasonz why a man can rape a woman and wat he said is just one of dose reasons *simple*....May God have mercy on anyone that wrote abusive words here. Also, Linda be mindful of wat u post pls. Bless!!

Anonymous said...

U're really stupid 4 saying that!!! How do you know that? And who gave you the right to say such nonsense about a man of God? True, I know there's no justification why a man should rape a woman, well dressed or not but he's not saying its right. He's just trying to make a point & advice women cos the truth is, the way a woman dresses can actually attract rape.

Olu said...

There has been rapists from time immemorial and guess what, rapists aren't going no where. So prevent your self from being a victim of rape by dressing appropriately.
It is as clear as ice water and that was what the pastor was trying to get across.
You can delude your self by reasoning that because rapists still rape people who were full clothed; you will start going around partially nude[ with boobs and booty staring at every man on the street]. If and when you are raped, you will have no one to blame except your sorry dirty minded ass and the creep that raped you. Never the less, i pray that the creep used a condom on you, so that he doesn't catch anything from you.
End of story.

WHEN IT COMES TO SEX, SOME CREEPS CANT CONTROL IT. SO LADIES, PREVENT OR MINIMIZE YOUR CHANCES OF BEING RAPED BY DRESSING APPROPRIATELY.
THAT IS THE MESSAGE THE PASTOR SENT ACROSS. THE PASTOR WAS NOT JUSTIFYING RAPE. NOT AT ALL.

Anonymous said...

@ikunkun you are a frustrated lady. I bet you didnt read the story at all. You opened your mouth to call a priest a half baked pastor? Ask yourself this question (thats if you understand english), what did the priest say? And as for you linda, how come you always dress decently? I bet the priest just gave an example of possible consequences of indecent dressing by ladies. Linda, why didnt you get his whole message (sermon)?

Anonymous said...

People like him give justification for sexual assault and rape. We ladies see a lot of manly skin even penis(an average man pees in public: so ladies have to contend with that image all the time) daily and we don't go about raping or sexually harassing men due to their nakedness. I can understand if a lay man makes this statement but a man of God *i weep*

Abi oh! D way dis linda thinks n makes summation somtyms is rily sad oh.b4 na lie wetin d man of God talk??even my mom says d same,instead of u 2come out and champion d course of women dressing decently u r here picking holes in what he hz said.abegi-shift jor,no wonder u love promoting Rihanna,cossy n all those useless naked wannabes.why not post d story of d catholic church which claimed abortion is right simply because a foetus is not a 'legal life'.talk about double standard

Linda, the Priest is not justifying rape, he is only condemning indecent dressing. Don't forget that some people suffer from certain compulsive behaviors.

Linda! potential rapist lol..seriously I always said it this is not an excuse for rape, I see rapists as animals, a rightful thinking nd self disciplined man can't rape even a naked woman, what about d under age children dat are been raped r they wearing tight or revealing clothes? for me rapist can also kill

No Linda, he is NOT justifying rape.

He has only made mention of what could stir up (provoke) a man's sexual desire and thus possibly lead to a man without self-control raping a woman.

I don't think it is right to imply what a person hasn't said.

Anonymous said...

No wonder Cossy Orjiakor, Rihanna,Beyonce and other agents of darkness are given generous attention on ur blogg. If u deceive urself pleeeeeez dont deceive others. The Priest wz only asking for decent dressing and not rape.

Linda, what if I say:

"Some people just leave cash lying about the house carelessly, therefore allowing their house-help to steal from them"

Does it mean I have justified the house-help stealing or am I trying to caution the folks that leave their money carelessly?

Linda u should be very carefull. How did he justify rape? He didn't do that. Pls u have a blog with a lot of fans, try to send positive msgs. Don't misuse it. R u encouraging indecent dressing? U r beginning to annoy me. If u don't have news just shut up. U should be ashamed of urself Linda.
