Founder of Daystar Christian Center, Pastor Sam Adeyemi, might just have been dragged into a gayrights mess.
A member of his church Chude Jideonwo was quoted during an interview supporting gayrights and this has led to speculation if such is being encouraged in Daystar Christian Center.
He had been quoted saying that he is in support of gayrights and would repeal the anti-gay law if he is elected president.
Chude said :
”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 gayrights. If I am president, I would overrule the antigay law,” he said
A member of the Daystar Christian Center in Lagos, Chris Nwogu, threatened to leave the church. 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.
Calling out Daystar Christian Center, Chris said:
”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 dissapointed, I hope @thesamadeyemi hears and take note. #Nigeria #nigerians #nigerianchurch#daystarng” he wrote
