'A Bullet For The Pope" - Written by Charly Boy

An article written by Charles Oputa, aka Charly Boy, aka Areafada...:-). Enjoy...
The first 20yrs of my life, I seriously had this dream of being a priest. I was overfed with an overdose of religion which has always been a very serious business in my family. You dare not be late for morning mass or else you get the whipping of your life, yes my father was that strict, no nonsense when it came to going to church or anything spiritual. That’s where I’m coming from, we were a family that prayed together and were very staunch Catholics for that matter. 
When I turned 16 I became an altar boy, at that time that was the coolest thing to be, considering years of going to bible classes and regular confessions. Eight months into the spiritual things as an altar boy, I made a big goof; I drank the priests wine and ate a bunch of Holy Communion enough to fill me up. I figured I could be more spiritual by that action, but I got expelled as an altar boy, needless to say how scandalized and angry my father was then, OMG. 

By the time I turned 20, I’ve had enough religion to last me two life times. By 1974, I left to further my studies in the USA, I was overjoyed because for the first time, I was going to be on my own. I was really carried away with my new found independence. Being an adventurous young man I started dabbling into not only the occult but with metaphysics, Buddhism, astrology, magic and all that Jazz. However, I still believe I was fundamentally a Catholic by birth, but the catholic fate has suddenly become boring and old fashion for me.

 When I read that controversial book, “In God’s Name”, all the negativity I started to feel about the Catholic Church became magnified in my mind. What about the sex scandals about priests and little boys. Hummmmmmm! I am aware that the Catholic Church is not a perfect body, and doesn't claim to be one. Of course it is plagued with the same corruption, scandals and sin as any other organization. Last night as I was watching CNN, the Pope’s visit to Brasil was being beamed to the world and all of a sudden, there it was, "who am I to judge as long as they walk in the light of Christ" Pope Francis on Gays. As reflexes would have it, I jumped out of my seat and hugged my TV, funny ha ha. Not because homosexuality has been part of my advocacy through the years but because I feel that every adult has a right to make their bed and lie on it as they choose, and who the hell are we to judge. I have always said that it is really not our place to judge those who do not fit our view of normal. So once again the church is attempting to evolve in order to keep up with the rest of civilization. That is how a religion survives. Its belief has to be flexible enough to stay somewhat relevant to current or the public will abandon it.

 Ever since the Popes election, my man has taken actions that seem to be very ‘unpopelike’. He even used public transport as a cardinal, he lives in a smaller quarter, he asked for blessing before blessing the crowd which gathered in St Peters square on the day of his election. But my people, what is stranger than Pope France’s action have been evangelicals’ reactions all over the world. Never before has a Pope become so widely accepted by Protestants and evangelicals. It's a proud day for Catholics and all mankind. Finally a Pope who doesn't see himself as equal to God, unlike our men of god down here. It is really amazing. Every Pope in the Catholic Church’s past has had a mastery over catholic rhetoric, because theoretically they always say the right things. But Pope Francis has decided to lead with his actions. Before delivering his message at the Holy Thursday Mass, Pope Francis spent time on his Knees washing the feet of young women incarcerated at a nearby prison. This is the first time a Pope has ever washed the feet of women, not to mention that one of the women was a Muslim, which is another break in papal tradition. In the holy book, the bible calls us to be the light to the world if Christ is to be present to the world. This is why Pope Francis’ way should be imitated for imitating him we make Christ visible and that is what influences others to walk in the way of Christ. So much to be said for our so called "men of god" in this neck of the woods who strut around as if they are God’s gift to mankind, most of them bunch of con men and fraud stars who are continually ripping off unsuspecting Nigerians, living in fancy houses, building universities their congregation can't even afford for their children and buying private jets because their God is not a poor God, as Nija's hand over their pay checks in return for a miracle because they have bought into the Hocus-pocus that is Pentecostalism. Just look at our churches today, tell me those priest, pastors or our so called men of god, who makes Christ visible. Jesus needs us to make him Visible and present in this troubled world. Blessed mother Teresa is a perfect example of showing us the love and mercy of Christ in the millions she cared for. The gospel calls us to imitate Christ and it is in the way we live that the gospel of Jesus gets proclaimed, that is how we speak Christ to a world that does not know him.

I am very scared for this Pope, he is a little too Christ like for his own good. There are still some die hard winches, vampires in the Vatican. I fear assassination, probably by the very people who call themselves "devout". If any Pope can show us what Jesus was saying, I think this one is the one. At least I hope so. I am impressed with this Pope not for his Catholicism but for his Christianity. As I lay in the comfort of my room watching the Pope’s visit to Brazil, it was clear to me that Pope Francis will go down in history as the greatest Pope ever, I just pray that he lives out his Pope ship for many years to come as to spread his light and make our lord Jesus more visible in the world. More than 3million people where at Copacabana beach for the re-enactment of the Stations of the Cross and farewell mass. This world Youths Day smashed previous attendance records and goes down in the record books as one of the best attended papal events ever.  In short, this Pope is a rock star. Here is a Pope who speaks the language of the people; In fact in Rio he kicked his penchant for simplicity, humility and accessibility into high gear. The security operatives were all overwhelmed by zealous pilgrims, he insisted on leaving the windows of his car down so he could extend his arm to those seeking his blessings. Countless babies kissed, photo ups with adoring faithfuls only added to the pontiff reputation for being a man of the people, and all of this took place in the roughest side of town, a crime ridden zone in Rio.

 Pope Francis is now standing up to the Mafia. First the Vatican honoured Rev Giuseppe Puglisi, killed 20yrs ago by mobsters for preaching against the Mafia, as a martyr. Pope Francis himself demanded that Mafia members abandon their "evil ways" especially those who exploit their fellow humans via human trafficking, drug dealing and prostitution. "They cannot make our brothers slaves; let us pray that these Mafiosi convert to God". Hummmmm na wa, if the Mafia decides to take Pope Francis out in retaliation for his words against them, I pray that there's a Pope Francis army out there ready to throw down.  If the Pope manages to mobilize all of Italian society against the Mafia, his days maybe numbered, but he will be unable to do so, and as a result I pray that the Mafia won’t remember him. They say the only thing needed for Evil to exist is for good men to do nothing. I am glad that he is doing something. He looks and sounds to me like he has a beautiful spiritual light burning  inside of him and is preaching goodwill for all and trying to turn around the corrupt so they too can walk in the sunlight of the spirit. I really admire him for standing up to the Mafias. I recognize the Popes effort in trying to bring a better image and name to Christianity.  Anyway you flip it, the Holy Father is full of surprises, born of true and faithful humility, at another occasion, he declared that all people, not just Catholics, are redeemed through Jesus, even atheists. "Those people must still do good. Infact, it is in doing good that they are led to the one who is the source of all that is good" In essence he simply restated the hope of the church that all come to know God, through his son Jesus Christ. Pope Francis is saying more than ever before, that Christ offered himself as a sacrifice for everyone. That has always been a Christian belief, but rarely do you hear it said by Catholics so forcefully, and with such evident joy. And in this era of religious controversies, it is a timely reminder that God cannot be confined to our narrow categories. Thumbs up for my man Pope Francis, nothing do you.

Flexibility to a crystal clear matter as being gay shouldn't be a ground to tread on for the church at all! And on other issues pointed out by him, I will agree to a degree, we now have a pope that's trying to be very "liberal", I hope that pays off well.

awwwwwwwwww! I feel like giving you a warm embrace Charly.for the first time u appealed to my conscience.
We've many things in common,like wanting to be a Priest and serving at the Sanctus sanctuorum. and above all a great admiration the new supreme Pontiff.
I was moved to tears the other day when I saw many people condeming the papal statement out of ignorance and I felt so bad that even Lindiway a Catholic posted an adulterated version of the Pope's statement.
"If he should repent and seek the face of God,who am I to judge him"
Even our Lord Jesus Christ said it don't be surprised when you see sinners and tax collectors making heaven.
If God who created man in his infinite mercy will allow a sinner to repent without taking his life,who are we mere mortals that can't create even a single hair.

This article, - despite highlighting some of the strong flaws existent in the Catholic faith - was still written to propagate the Catholic faith. #JustSaying

i am Amazed that Charly Boy has followed the Pope it a good gesture and that is to tell you that his heart and mind yell for God, He has written so well nice write up,, Area Father... Out of the whole Crazy stuff he has done with this he has converted a soul... there is always something good in a bad person..
we are all called to retrace our footstep back to God the Alpha and Omega.. No one is Perfect We are striving for Perfection In God...
Another Example Charly Boy forgot to mention was that of Pope John Paul II he also lived in the same life line.. God bless the PAPAL...

Anderson Fox said...

Nice lines, bit its obvious why you love him so much, Gay. It is in my opinion that Gay is not normal and the Gay are never a normal people.
Your other points checked out especially that of the religious entrepreneurs called pastors.
As you join me to judge the pastors,I hope you will be judged too as a fucking gay?

Anonymous said...

Nice writeup. While the pope chose not to judge a sinner, he still preaches repentance. Very Christlike but I pray it would not be read and interpreted as support for sin.

This pope and the church will not legalize gay marriage! Not yet!

U see your problem? Nigerians hate to READ!! All of you complaining its too long blaa blaa...ignorance will kill y'all. Read and educate your self with meaningful and thought provoking articles like this. Quit ur passive shallow minds! It is people like u who do not like to read that come out to misquote and make biased assertions about a writer's intents. So u are waiting for someone who's read it to translate the meanings their own minds deciphered? So that u can reecho somebody else's perspective when the article is staring u in the face? SAD!

PC, I strongly agree with you, and to add to it, there is nothing like gay-Christians, because Christ was never gay. The judge is God, but the pope need not welcome homosexuality in the name of liberalism and acculturation.

Nice comment Princecharming + On the gay matter again,i would like to say that the pope didn't act well,he should with all effort had expressed disapproval on the issue,and not just liberally say who is he to judge,he is a pope for crying out sake and not a politician wanting to cut support from every angle. If sin is sin then why does he then place the act of gay as that way,everyone other sin should be looked at that same way then.

Mehn! I dnt understand why charlie boy wud understand the essence of Christ's coming than all u self-acclaimed righteous. What Pope Francis is saying is all over the bible, frm genesis to revelation. But dnt search the whole bible; simply read 2 Cr 5:19. Counter gayism with the Word. Hate the act, gay, dnt hate the man or woman in bondage of that sin. Taking the Word to them is the will of God, for the Word is able to change the.

See what our poor educational system has produced? People who can't read! What was so long about the article? Interesting thoughts, Charly Boy. Not sure I agree with all you've espoused but I guess that wasn't your reason for writing. I am not sure religion needs to necessarily evolve. The rules were given by God for all men to follow. Is there any legislating those rules, Pope or not?

Quite a controversy,so to say,he never condemned d gay partners but kept mum on issues about gay. He never called the spade a spade. Christ never condemned d sinners but reprimanded them not to sin again. In my conclusion He (Pope Francis) did a part of Christ's work by not condemning them but never completed it by not condemning the act. Finally I know that God made them Adam and Eve and not Adam and Steve. We can never be wiser than He that made us. The pope's statement (silence) on this issue should be looked into as I'm condemning nobody but His mum attitude,hence, sparing the rod, hoping the child won't get spoilt. So I ask is the child going to be spoilt,definitely we all know the answers.....

What a controversy,so to say,Christ never condemned any sinner but he reprimanded them saying "go and never sin again",with this he acknowledged that they committed a sin. The Pope's statement (silence) towards issues of gay have been one to be seriously deliberated upon. He just did a part of Christ's work by not condemning them but never completed the work by not acknowledging that same sex intercourse (homosexualism and lesbianism)is a sin. I cannot possibly call that an omission cause the Pope noted"who am I to judge as long as they walk in the light of Christ".Imagine a gay priest walking in the light of Christ. This in a way has prompted the gay and lesbians(and their advocators) to rise and write in favour of the pope(Pope Francis).We cannot outsmart God. He has reasons for creating them Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve. The pope 'spared the child' but never 'spoilt the rod', Both cannot walk together. Never can we spare the rod expecting the child not to get spoilt....or is it possible.... Think about that.

Nothing about homosexuality is flexible to God and to christians. These are only signs of the endtime. The sooner people get that and repent rather than look for ways to corner the Bible, the better.God's holiness can never be diluted.Humans can never change God's perspectives.

'So once again the church is

Mich said...

The tendency is there that an individual who grew up under strict religious indoctrinations is bound to rebel with the first ounce of freedom he tastes.The point therefore is,rather than enforce religion on your wards,let them discover "Faith" for themselves.The most you can do is suggest and enlighten them on what path is right and which isn't but never force it down their throats.
About the pope,he said it all...the pope has shown how liberal he's compared to previous popes and there are people in some quarters who can't deal with it.I appreciate the Pope's stance on Gays;I'm a firm believer of "Live and let Live".
The only thing I'm opposed to in Mr.Charly's write up is his condemnation of Pentecostals/Protestants.Its this senseless divide in christiandom that is responsible for the Faith's down-plunge over the last two decades...its about time Christians from all denominations come together and wage a 'cold war' against her common enemy.
If only I was a Christian...

As for charly boy, we know what he is long ago so we aren't supprise he is happy d pope sees nothing wrong in being gay.

All he just vomitted are just pure rubbish n UnChristlike!

He was just going back and forth, u cant sit @ d fence ok.......its either u'r in or out ok! The Bible says anyone who's naming him/herself with the Name of the Lord should depart frm evil!

So, homosexual practice is purely evil! Its ungodly cos the Holy Bible condemns Ȋ̝̊†̥! The Bible does not support such inhumane act! Kapish!!!!!!

So watever Charlie 'man' is saying and the rests indulging in such practice are just on dia own!!!!!!!!!

He destroyed Sodom n Gomorrha cos of homosexuality and oda sexual immoralities....Since we are under Grace and no more under d law dats y we can't put dem to death with our hands all we can do is stand FIRM on wot God says abt it "its an ABOMINATION to Him". We need not give dem d tiniest chance to feel justified abt deir actions. We need to keep ringing it in deir hears, backed with God's word dat HOMOSEXUALITY IS AN ABOMINATION!

Very well thought out and written comment. My take is this; God loves the sinner but hates sin which is a point that i dont think the Pope communicated effectively. In the things of God one cannot afford to be politically correct. The bible is clear that homosexuality is sin and not God's plan. None of us including the pope or the area father are products of homosexuality. I am of the view that the church in attempting to stay relevant to modern trends is accepting sin rather than condeming it and pointing showing the way to redemption; Jesus Christ. Let God be true and every man a liar

Well, a long piece but i had to take my time to read as much as i could before making this comment.

Truth is, homosexuality is wrong and there never will be anything to justify the fact that it is. I also grew up with the tendency of being one and this is the first time i am writing this or saying this to anyone but why not now? because i know it is wrong and the Holy Bible and Christianity does not support such barbaric act.

I have spent all my life understanding this, praying against it and personally making effort to be in line with what God and the Holy Bible says and To God Be The Glory.

Charly-Boy, please do not get people confused because you support Gaying and of course you never will be a role model to any human in his/her right senses.

Any Civilization that makes human drift from the light of God is nothing but SIN.

Drop this please and let men get closer to God and not farther from Him. Please Give Your Life To Christ and never again let yourself be used as a devils incarnate.

Pls charly boy I respect u as a dad n grandad we'd also also encourage any of ur kids or gran kids to be gay ? Pls lets watch wht we preach in social media . Abeg!!!!!!!!!

This is all bullshit talk. I understand that GOD said we should not judge others. We are not asking the pope to judge anybody. Rather the pope should say the truth and advice people to follow the ways of Jesus christ and the holy bible. ..Anything Gay is sin according to the Holy Bible...so the pope should stop all this politics and this act of trying to please people. This is my Take on d issue.

nobody asks pope to judge,it is word of God that has judged them.God strongly condemns homosexuality.so if pope sits on fence on letting pple know what the side of God on homosexuality,doesnt move Gods judgement.this is the end time ,beware of false prophets.they r out there to deceive nd destroy .the hot judgement is coming upon the world.

Lovely write up,im not a catholic,but i agree with all he has said apart 4rm the gay part,ive not and dont think i would evolve to understand y pple are gay,regardless as he has said like christ we shud show love to all,the church should set an example,maybe corruption and poverty in nigeria would reduce drastically if churches channelled more of the gains from offerings to those who are less privileged and they shudnt restrain their helping hands to only their congregation.

Pure Rubbish, no wander i woke up sad for no reason today! As if God knew i was gonna see this. Who makes the rules, God or man? God hasnt changed and will not, he destroyed Sodom & Gomorrah for homosexuality and u expect his views to be different now because its the 21st century? Charlie is misled indeed, this article just cements it. Dont be deceived, God never changes and every man will account for his deeds and words. The Devil is doomed already but we still have hope...even you Charlie. Cheers!

For those who have followed Pope Francis since his first day as Pope should know that he is against Homosexuality. He

What he said in Brazil was that if someone who is homosexual repents and God forgives him\her, who is he Pope Francis to judge the person.

All ur comments are shallow n lack depth of undastanding.d pope was right by being liberal even to gays.if u go thru d bible,who did Jesus ever totally condemn or disapprove of?He embraced all n accepted them with d hope dat in ds acceptance dey would find d truth n desist from their evil ways.d bible says'for God so loved d world d world dat He gave His only begotten son that 'whosoever' which encompasses all of humanity irrespective of race,color,sexual preference,religion etc shld not perish bt av everlasting life!90% of d pple used by God in d bible were all defaulters,is it moses who was a murderer?paul who persecuted d pple?david who killed n coveted anoda man's wife n yet God stil described him as a man after His heart.are ds crimes not worse than being gay but yet christ embraced them all and asked us not 2 judge!u ds pc talkin,are there not tnz dat u do dat Jesus n d pope would frown upon?it is bcus of sentiments lyk ds dat makes our hearts soo cold to one another bcus instead of loving ur neighbor as yourself as christ commanded,u are busy judging dem 4 being gay,thieves etc.not knowing dat by embracing n accepting dem as part of us dey jus might turn from their evil ways and if dey don't at least u av done d work of your Father.Tho I am not a catholic,I absolutely agree wit d Pope's stance and luv ds beautiful write up by Charly boy

Linda post my comment oooo.Christianity isn't a religion,its in everyday living like Christ. ROM 1v 25-27 clearly states the issue on homosexuality&charlyboy saying religion should be adjusted is simply saying that altering God's word is okay. For d pope(ephesians5v9-11) no one should judge,but stating wat is right and wat is wrong isn't condemnation,its showing the people that look up to u as an oracle of God,the right path to go. Jesus died for all sinners,true Christianity is in ur everyday living like Christ. Charles oputa's write up is actually sound,but truly one sided in favour of d catholic,but Christianity should b turned into a political affair where cadres are turned into political parties. In Christ neither is Jew nor gentile,ur actions everyday is wat we will be judged on not wat cadre of Christianity u belong too. This is a wake up call to everyone,live right according to the perfect example of Christ. Jesus said to Mary 'wat do ur accussers say u did? Adultery-she replied and he said go your way and sin no more. He didn't condemn her,but let her know that wat she did was wrong,but dnt do it again. May God help us all. Linda post my comment oooooo.

Who is bringing religious propaganda against APC??? Religion plus politics is always evil.. anyone that understands the history of the Christian Church should know this.

Politics cannot protect the true believers, only God can. And if a true believer dies, it is home-coming not sad. Problem is, a lot of us here a so in love with this carnal world, and Jesus has said you cannot love the world and please God.

So let's remove religion from the politics of Nigeria. Thank You

As far as i am concerned no church should bend d rules given by the bible to stay relevant. Granted some pole are gay by nature it's a struggle they have to fight if they want to remain in Gods word.its same thing that applies to people who have natural tendency to steal, sleep around, etc they have to fight with the imperfection .God sees every effort they are making. Only when God kingdom comes to this earth will humans attain perfection.so don't encourage wrong doin for the sake of making pole come to church instead help them see that God does not condone it but will bless your effort in trying to abstain from it.
