Nigerian Anglican Church Subjects Members to Oath Denouncing Homosexuality

 Anglican Primate of Nigeria Nicholas Okoh

The Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) has introduced a clause in its constitution subjecting members, who intend to hold positions in church, to take an oath of allegiance to God denouncing homosexuality. The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the public denunciation took place in Abuja on Sunday at St. Matthews, Maitama, during the swearing-in of new members of the Parish Church Council (PCC).

The Vicar of the church, Ven. Ben Idume, who administered the oath to members of the PCC, said the church recognised that those with such sexual orientation needed help and counselling.

Chimamanda Adichie Warns Journalist: Don't Call me Mrs! Nobody can Force me to Change my Surname'

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is a multi awarding winning author and in a new interview with TheSunNews, she blasted the journalist for addressing her as Mrs. Chimamanda. *lol*
Chima insists her name is Miss Chimamanda Adichie, not Mrs Chimamanda Esega (her husband's surname). It's quite a long interview but it's a must read. It sure will make you understand what makes the big writer, who wrote a piece on feminism that Beyonce so fell in love with she featured it in her hit song 'Flawless', tick.
  • Mrs Chimamanda Adichie, welcome back to Nigeria…
Before we start, please, I just want to say that my name is Chimamanda Adichie. That’s how I want it; that’s how I’m addressed, and it is not Mrs but Miss.  Ms: that’s how I want it. I am saying this, because I just got a mail from my manager this morning. It seems that there are people who attended the church service, and they wrote about it, addressing me as Mrs. Chimamanda (Esega). I didn’t like that at all. So my name is Chimamanda Adichie, full stop!
  • You mean?
This is because it is also responsible that people be called what they want to be called.

'Bible never Said Do not Abort a Baby Conceived via Rape' - Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, yesterday, during Christ embassy's Communion Service answered the question: 'Can a baby that is a product of rape be aborted?'
Using David and Bethsheba's case to answer the question, Pastor Chris said despite David's prayer and fasting, the child who was a result of David's sin still died.
His words:
No child should be brought into this world by force, if a lady has been raped, it is left for her to make a decision of whether to keep the baby or not. If you have never been raped or someone

Oscars 2014: Lupita Nyong’o's Emotional Acceptance Speech is soo Inspiring! (Video)

86th Annual Academy Awards - Show

Lupita will always be remembered for making Africa so proud last night after she won an Oscar, Best Supporting Actress in the movie “12 Years A Slave” where she played a role as Patsey, a favored but abused slave. This made her the 7th Black woman ever to receive an Oscar.

In her very emotional acceptance speech, which is a must see if you are yet to see it, Lupita reminded viewers that there’s a long history behind how she got to that stage. And in a tear-jerking conclusion, she expressed her wish that her unknown-to-Oscars trajectory would inspire someone watching at home to go for it — because, as she explained: “No matter where you’re from, your dreams are valid.”

Lupita is a beauty!!! Congratulations, gurl. Watch her speech below.
