Nigerian Gay Pastor; Jide Macaulay on The Expiration of Being Gay.






I've never heard anyone say being gay has an expiry date. 
Although I have difficulty reconciling being homosexual with being a pastor, like I told a friend yesterday when we were talking about bleaching expert; Pela, I admire anybody who's willing to embrace their individuality, sexuality and 'uniqueness' regardless of how they're perceived by society or how people might judge them. 

But this is just me, these are just my views. I'm all for doing whatever makes you happy as long as no one gets hurt, and I choose not to buy the baseless conclusions that homosexuality is similar to paedophilia and bestiality and I may tear my ears off if I have to hear that one more time. I would rather a man come out of the closet as gay, than marry while having trysts with other men, thereby possibly exposing his wife to STIs she may not even know exist, and also ushering her into a life of unending frustration and disastisfaction as he would never be able meet her sexual needs. 

Anyways I just wanted to ask you guys; if someone very dear to you is secretly gay, would you encourage them to stay in the closet and remain frustrated and repressed but free from judgement and condemnation
Or would you encourage them to come out of the closet, embrace their sexuality and have a shot at happiness and love but risk getting judged and taunted?

I'm not even sure what my own answer to this question is...

  1. I am bi-sexual, I enjoy pleasure from both sex, do u advice me to come out too? Nope. Behind closed doors thelma.
    I ask myself how did I get here? I was abused as a young teenager and since then, babes get drawn to me. Most times I avoid them, but hey I enjoy the act.
    Still asking God for the grace to stop. before you judge me I plead guilty

    1. Well it's not sincere if she's anonymous, and no one can judge an anonymous commenter. Lol

  2. I would encourage them to seek God and help! I totally categorize them as one wt d pedo n bestial folks. While trying to understand and accommodate people's need and right to b true to themselves, I am not and will never be that liberal. It's a twisted and dark force at work in their heads for all I care... for let God b true and all 'freedom human right activists' men b liars!
    Got me a gay cuz, and while he's one of my favourite people, I still think he's not normal. Nobody should even give me the "judge not" sermon, cos I don't see them as sinners (aren't we all?) but as people under bondage.
    As per 'Pastor' Jide... God help his 'christianly' self b4 it expires on earth. Odikwa Egwu!

    1. We are all twisted. I don't see being gay as one bit abnormal. Really who is the judge of what is normal and abnormal. Animals have gay sex. Few years ago it was abnormal for a woman to be a doctor or a lawyer, even in America. Why it's such a biggie is what I don't get. Oh! I know. The bible says it's a sin, so is a woman talking in church (check corinthians).
      If you will be a good christian, stop choosing only the parts of the bible that is in your favour.
      Homophobia irritates me. That's the crime. That's the sin.

    2. My dear, I clearly remember YOU don't believe in d bible. IMO, that makes you unqualified to understand much less debate what it says or doesn't say about sin. Mayb when thelma does a post connecting to something we both believe in, we'd have something to learn from each other (if it's worth d higgy hagga of course).
      As per my crime of being homophobia... am yet to see one court system that'd try and convict me for dat. Same however can't b said for 'our' homosexual friends(thank God). #abnormalandtwisted
      And while we'r singing d freedom songs, let's write in d right to have sex with our children, crawl on all fours and chew weed like animals just cos we wanna b progressives... am dancing already!
      Selah!

    3. You cannot be homophobic and have homosexual friends.

    4. Sin is not a christian word, dear Muna and it's not applicable to christianity alone. And when you realise you are talking of human beings like you who can feel pain and hurt, who might even be reading this, depressed and ready to commit suicide because homophobic people like you have told them they are abnormal and sick, maybe you might stop joking about it and comparing it to pedophilia and chewing weed.

    5. @anon...dt line was list on U obviously. @ifesinachi... read ur first comment. U mentioned sin in direct reference to the bible and followed up with my 'selective' Christianity. seeing as dats d only religion am interested it, I restrict d use of the word to what I believe in and not it's meaning across religions.
      I have no intention of offering my shoulder to d just about anybody to cry on. Suicidal tendencies are sad but totally beyond my control. They should seek help! Spiritual or psychological. Whichever rocks their boat. We mustn't all play good cop in ds movie.

  3. Alas Ifesinachi has said gay sex isn't sin. ok, fornication isn't sin, cheating on ur boo isn't sin, and yet u rant about such tinz. Nwando asked a question about a family member living in d closet. answer dat Pls.

    1. How about you get imprisoned for 14yrs because you cheated on your boyfriend or slept with a man that isn't your husband. And mind you this question wasn't directed to christians alone. Don't assume that I share the same religious beliefs as you. For all i know, I believe in LOVE and KINDNESS and don't care what hole rocks your boat as far as you are being kind and loving.

  4. Thelma I would advise them to stay in the closet and be happy. I don't think they can be happy if they come out, especially in a country like nigeria. they're better off hiding biko.

  5. Being gay is a sin just as fornication is.The fact people engaging in the later are not condemned as people in the former does not make any of them less a sin. J

  6. This gay thing is a really tough stuff, some days i just say let them be, whatever rocks thr boat, but then again, i would not want being gay to rock the boat of my brother or my son biko.....wtf

  7. Being gay is unnatural, abnormal and is a sin.
    That it's said some animals have gay sex does not make human gay sex any more natural; no. So do some animals prey on weaker members of same kind, should we too humans do so? Because there's a proof of animals doing so, making it seem natural.
    Even gay people know they're doing wrong. They know it.
    I don't think gays should serve jail terms as it's a sin against one's self, as fornication, adultery.
    I wouldn't advise one who's gay to come outta their closet and be happy. What I would is, seek help. It isn't an easy habit to stop/ temptation to resist.

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…

#WriteRight. VIVIAN: MY FIRST SEX EXPERIENCE WITH MY BOYFRIEND

He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
Kai!

Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…

Shhhhhhh....

I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!

Question of The Day.

TTB readers doesn't this tweet below remind you of something?
That mail that someone sent me a few weeks back. 
But why on earth should a man sleep with his son's fiancé? But what am I saying, some men even sleep with their daughters...

Oh well, I'm throwing the question to you. What has happened in your life that you never saw coming, you never hesperred it, you never imagined could happen, you never imagined could happen to you? 
It could be good, it could be bad, it could be ugly. Do tell!
And it can be more than one. Let me tell you a few. 
-owning a blog -week long dry fast at Prayer City (I never hesperred it).  -staying in an (emotionally) abusive relationship.
The others require anonymity. LOL. Now over to you.
