Anglican Church members now take anti-homosexuality oath

Members of the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) are now to carry out an oath exercise denouncing any trace or affiliation for homosexuality before they can take up any leadership position in the church. The church which has over the years held strong opposition against homosexuality included this oath taking into its constitution recently.

Yesterday, the first oath-taking against homosexuality was conducted at the St. Matthews, Maitama, Abuja branch when new members of the Parish Church Council were sworn in by the Vicar of the Parish, Ven. Ben Idume. Continue...
The oath taken text reads
"I declare before God and his Church that I have never been a homosexual/bisexual or (have repented from being homosexual/bisexual) and I vow that I will not indulge in the practice of homosexuality/bisexuality. “If after this oath I am involved, found to be, or profess to be a homosexual/bisexual against the teachings of the Holy Scriptures as contained in the Bible, I bring upon myself the full wrath of God and subject myself willingly to canonical discipline as enshrined in the constitution of the Church of Nigeria, so help me God".
While administering the oath, Vicar Idume stressed that henceforth no one who has any trace of homosexuality or bisexuality will be allowed to take up any leadership role in the church.

They are stupid...ow bout the other sins like adultery, fornication, murder etc. I guess those don't incur the wrath of God....Retarded hypocrites.

Stupid men. Have you taken oath against abortion? Fornication? Corruption? Because the people that brought the Anglican church to you don't know what they are on about anymore. Even the Pope said who is he to judge, but Nigeria, being the "moral centre of the world" must go against that and judge, castigate, and excommunicate. Soon Nigeria will have its own Pope and it's own bible. Mark my words.

Good old Nigerian ignorance. Why don't they get people to swear not to embezzle Church funds? Why don't they resolve not to give honours to dishonest, rich people.? Why don't they insist that their married members should practise fidelity, and excommunicate those who have affairs and children by other women than their wives? Even the Archbishop of Canterbury and the Pope do not have this attitude. Have they studied Church history to know the role the sexual minority has played in the development of Christianity? All those famously single missionaries were straight and celibate? Maybe! With respect, this oath is so silly, so ignorant, so provincial.

This is lovely and best news for me today, if this continues i may come back fully to my beloved Anglican Church which is almost being taken over by the White man's sickness and evil practices. Homosexuality is same as bestiality and should be condemned in all manners, no preaching or shadowing can make it look otherwise.

God bless the Maitama Church for this and God bless the Nigerian Anglican Communion, let the canterbury Lords learn the real gospel and stop deceptions.

Linda I'm 100% Anglican, the homosexuality denounciation has being existing for over 4 yrs or so. Since we removed ourselves from church of England n became Church of Nigeria, after England started ordaining gay priest n marrying gays in church.

Hmmmmmm... Okay na!!

Anonymous said...

Talk about misplaced priorities. The churches in Nigeria need to worry less about homosexuals and worry more about the fact that 63% of the population of Nigeria which they serve (wait... prey on) are living on less than $1 daily. Funny thing is if Jesus were alive today, many of this so called Christians will probably look at his lifestyle (over 30, unmarried and kept a regular close company of 12 men) and assume he is gay. If your bible says do not judge, then are why are you passing judgement? Bloody hypocrites!

Very good oath. I only hope their tendencies to love on young children is also made a threatening oath. Death to all homos. If you are straight, that should not concern you. It's people who support homos that are boko haram supporters too, anything antisocial and you see them raining abuses and looking for means to propagate their sorry selves.

In fact, I have to draw a parallel between homos and muhammedans.
1)Both love to announce their orientation. They want to force it down your throat, they MUST make you one of them. If you don't fancy them, they abuse or blast you.
2) both are attention seekers. They can't keep what they do to themselves. They are always blowing their trumpet with silly statements such as:" islamist and proud of it", "homo and proud of it", "infidel and proud of it".
3) they are self obsessed. So full of their pathetic little selves. The world revolves around their cause. Like, honestly, it DOESN'T. Who cares about homos and muslims? NO ONE EXCEPT THEMSELVES!!!

Why did I bring up the rant? Because of the terror preacher arriving to a red carpet, and because the idiocy of homosexuality is wrecking news and blogs. What stake does nigeria have in butty boys and fucked by finger girls and head-hitting fanatics? None.

Mwaha.

Let them have oaths against adultery and fornication, then I'll know they are serious. Are our people daft? The Pope doesn't condemn, the Archbishop of Canterbury has not condemned. Have Nigerian Anglicans not used the Church to serve their vanity, creating titles, Knights and ladies and all sorts, which is not done in the home Anglican church in England? Just creating status elements in the Church. How is the Anglican Church urging the Government to fight Boko Haram? If this new anti-gay bill had been passed in the time of Jesus, he would have been convicted. He was over thirty, kept close company with men, and was said to have a favourite, John, 'the disciple that Jesus loved', who stayed close to Christ. Our people just load their half-baked christianity with ignorance. I would pray to be delivered from gayness if I could pray to be delivered from being born black, or being born male. The creator made straight and LGBT as part of the variety and richness of creation and our people refuse to recognise that.

If u can change urself to be straight wit all this bashing and hating wldnt u? Unfortunately, sexuality isn't wat u change, d more u try, d more difficult it becomes. Getting married and having kids won't even solve it, u wld only add more pple to ur issue. People will not understand but trust me God will understand, his ways are not our ways and his tots far from our tots. U grow up seeing urself having sexual affection to ur fellow gender, its weird, d only way out for gays is either being celibate or meeting deir kind. Pls allow this pple meet deir kind. U re not in their shoes, u do not know, stop thinking it. Anti-gay rubbish law yet all this politicians are chasing guys up and down. Grow ur family and bizness, leave gay pple alone, it didn't start today and won't end with all these laws here and der. Mind ur bizness is d word cos wat u don't understand is above u, leave it!!!

Did I just hear u say we don't have a gay priest? U actually have bisexual priests all over d place, I could just mention 5 names jst in the neighbourhood. Dat tells u how deep homosexuality has gone. People are so myopic, the fact someone gets married doesn't rule them off from being gay or bi. The truth is dat many marriages have crashed, many would still crash cos pple who have a different sexuality are being forced to d norm in the society. If being gay or bi was a thing of choice, do u think anyone would choose it? This pple are different, when they look at deir fellow kind they get erection, they can't help it, many have killed demselves, many have gone exile, many are living a sorrowful life and this stupid Anti-gay law isn't helping at all. You can't force a girl down d throat of a gay man. If you are straight, thank ur God, many are not as fortunate as u. Love thy neighbour as thyselves, all these kill dem, burn dem, drive dem away will not benefit anyone. Let d sleeping dog lie!

Please Linda, stop posting rubbish. Anywhere u hear homo, u just copy and post. The oath is not a new thing. And it has all other things like adultery corruption.

Uninformed and wrong posts like this and others are capable of instigating unneccesary hatred in a community.

Why didn't u post it yrs ago when it started? Suddenly leadership oath swearing has become news. Why not post presidents oath swearing and allow ur followers to tell them what they added or leftout. God is watching u Linda.
