A Nigerian man and a member of the Daystar Christian Center in Lagos, Chris Nwogu, has threatened to leave the church following Chude Jideonwo’s position on gay rights. Recently, Chude had an interview with LITV host, Hero Daniels where he stated that he is in support of gay rights and would repeal the anti-gay law if he is elected president.
Chude is a respected member of the Daystar Christian Center, Lagos whose senior pastor is Sam Adeyemi.
”I am very disappointed in the fact that Donald Duke went on the couch with Falz and spoke courageously about gay rights and then went on to change his mouth after. I am fully in support of gay rights. If I am president, I would overrule the antigay law” he said
Reacting to Chude’s comment, Chris said Chude who is supposed to be a Christian should not be supporting gays. He said any day Chude is allowed to come on the pulpit in the church again to teach, he would leave with his family.
”And @chudeity you supposed to be a Christian and comes to @daystarng and you are gay or supporting gay right, any other day @daystarng allows you come up to the pulpit to teach on anything that day I and family are done with daystar church, chude I’m highly disappointed, I hope @thesamadeyemi hears and take note. #Nigeria #nigerians #nigerianchurch#daystarng” he wrote
