Bernardine Evaristo debunks #Homophobia in #Africa ..’ – #In14Ways #BernardineEvaristo #MercyfulGracePosted: January 15, 2020
Africa is well lit with controversy vehemently on sexuality. Some primitive ideology permits that narrow minded view where ignorance is partly king. Bernardine’s article is refreshing.
Nigeria for instance criminalises the lgbtq+ community for 14yrs if convicted in the act between consenting adults, but will gladly force marry a 13yr old girl into marriage with a 40 year old grown man without remorse.
It’s hypocritical to the best of my reasoning of understanding. (It’s illogical – after researching Religious Trauma Syndtome: Dr Marlene Winell). Where is the hypocrisy and where is the freewill? After all, love does not manipulate other’s freewill.
That hate in your heart does not belong to me. You can keep it for no one else for your sakes’ ..’ – Aremuorin
I have always maintained Africa’s irrational, traditional homophobia, is misplaced. This article is lit with facts away from religious abuse & cultural ignorance. About time, we start re – educating ourselves on Religious Abuse.
#Listen: God is love. I am pro #love. An avid friend, confident & supporter of the Lgbtq+ community and it’s environs worldwide. Get used to it & worry about your own sinful #hypocrises.
Toxic Masculinity, Self Hate & Homophobic triads does not make you a man. Love is not #adversarial. The personification: of love, is love.
Culture is not set in stone. Otherwise, we’d still be ridding donkeys to Jerusalem and burning witches at the stake.
Here is the irony. The self-hating, in denial, closeted lgbtq+ communities, are self-demonising, and also being demonised with rhetorics of fear, mis-education & shaming antics.
Yet, it does not stop their self-righteous hypocritical, closeted sexual conquest’s with aggressive male-volent, projections, littered with promiscuity.
It only drives them further underground with prevalent risks to more undisclosed STD’S or HIV cross infections, between their (multiple) sexual partners and spouses.
Straight folks, by far; are not homophobes. It might gross them out mildly, in thoughts. End off. They don’t go on a homophobe, witch-hunt, anarchy triads of persecution of the lgbtq+ community. They are too involved thinking of getting laid by the opposite sex. Those who do are simply self-hating & self-projecting.
There was a time that the killing of twins was acceptable in Africa, just like the burning of witches at the stake in the west. I bet they all look on with indignation, now, rolling in their graves; with their ignorance.
Why is Africa always the last to know? Just like some Africans still believe Jesus is white and still waiting for him to come and save them from their sins when the Eve gene preceeds white Jesus.
So, tell me. What has Africa resolved and achieved with this illogical, antiquated-thinking, hypocrisy, denial and avoidable ignorance?
Africa, let people be. Let God be God. Stop trying to change folks forcefully. Even by biblical standards; Abraham the father of faith had whores, all the way to Solomon, the wisest King of his time.
God is love. God loves a good misfit from Moses to Saul. He used them exceedingly well to move mountains. He revels in the foolish to confound the wise, so that He can take glory, time after time. Worry about your own sins. Humans are just humans and have always been.

Homophobia in Africa is a real concern for me as a humanitarian. Love is not toxic masculinity.
Many of these homophobes consume lgbtq+ goods and services most of their lives; yet remain perputually ignorant of the fact, that they do. From your Tom Ford to your Louis Vuiiton. They are all lgbtq+ products. So think again before look foolish. When you look at life in black and white you stop seeing rainbows.
South Africa’s pro lgbtq+ rights have come a long way and I hope the rest of Africa wakes up to follow suite.
The same anti lgbtq+ bible the average homophobe justifies their cognitive dissonace, from; buttressed with tyranic homophobic antics also says, girls should be stoned to death on their wedding nights if they are not virgins, by their husbands. Only to further lament in Ecclesiastes 7:20:
Indeed, there is no one on earth who is righteous, no one who does what is right and never sins.
So, again – “Worry about your own sins”.

So this #pastor called me an #abomination and #unworthy in God’s sight ..’ He said He is trying these #spirits no matter what I call him in return.
He made a lengthy YouTube video response trashing out a pastor and calling him out on all sorts with gay slurs.
All becsuse the pastor dressed down in skinny jeans to preach at a youth convention. I read the comments and had enough and replied.
Then he attacked me too.
So I replied ::
“Pastor Jerone Tv – No you dont preach #love but #condescending #airs.
You talk out of your rear.
You are a self #hating #classic closeted #gay #man. Let me help you since you are confused, need help and curious of whom I sleep with.
I sleep, with cars, trees, elephants, rhinos, girraffes, and my cat. My chickens too with a long beak unlike your #ugly self #righteous #heart.
You are not a #preacher. You are #fake as a pancake in my own opinion.
Very #ignorant to be precise. You should be no where near a pulpit. You need #bible #schooling.
How about you worry about your own #sins first. Are you a #saint? You are not God. The white Jesus #complex effed you up good.
You probably hate mirrors in your house cuz they reflect what you attract that’s in you #coming #out (#manifesting) all around you.
You are the #apex of #cowardice.
1 James 1:8
If we claim to be without #sin, we #deceive ourselves and the #truth is not in us.
My name is written in the book of life because of what #Jesus has done. Fyi.
How about that. #Revelation for you ..’
What about the fornication agenda? Are they in the body of Christ? #MercyfulGrace

‘It never siezes to surprise me how some organized religions, subsitute love, for hate, in the name of God. Every thing contradictory to Jesus’s doctrine; on the greatest commandment, of all time. Love*. This is why #I #Love #Jesus ..’
#MercyfulGrace #Hate #Prejudice
You should take your own advice if you are a xtain, then be Jesus like. Jesus never judged even thou he could.
His chosen disciples made it clear in Matthew 7:1. Dont judge or you will be judged. Thats the first book of the gospels according to Jesus found in the first verse if its seventh chapter. Thats epic and a revelation in its self.
Xtains are not parents. It’s a stupid analogy to infer on anyone, in any arguable sensibility. Self righteous religious fanatics are like the Saudi Arabian govt trying to lecture the west on feminism. Flamming hypocrits.
Sweep around your own front door before you sweep around mine. And for the record; I am a Xtain, and my sins are non of Joe blogs – business.
God probably speaks to me more often than any of these religious charlatans, one on one with great signs and wonders and revelations.
Stop using God to harrass people. Its not xtianity. Its bad religion and God is not religion. Worry about your own ignored closeted sins that you keep pretending dont exist.
It never siezes to surprise me how some organized religions, subsitute love, for hate, in the name of God. Every thing contradictory to Jesus’s doctrine; on the greatest commandment, of all time. Love*. Theres no love in your religion and you think God is in it. Dream on darling ..’
This is why #I #Love #Jesus ..’ The things I love the most are the things that scare #me the most. Maybe thats the #truth ..’

Every saint has a past. Every sinner has a future. Let the church say amen ..’ – Phaedra Parks
As far as I am concerned, as a christian believer – every time I delve into this issue, I am torn within, because at the bottom of it all, its all about love, hypocrisy and self righteous people trying to work it out.
The danger with religion here is that – Religion has victimized, oppressed, vilified so many lives, out of social conditioning, cultures and various socio-economic political agendas. Aside the long fancy words ..’ What would loved do? That’s what, I would, myself, over and over again ..’
If Jesus befriended a whore, his best friend, knowing his Nan was a whore – who are you to judge or condemn? I mean, who is perfect? And before you run off with your – come back ‘Gay Agenda’. There is no gay agenda on this thread. The only agenda here-is Love. The Love Agenda!
I love misfits
Every saint has a past. Every sinner has a future. Let the church say amen ..’ So when I found this research, the debates, the threads sparked off – became more fascinating, than ever. Before, I tell them, Lord, please tell me. A religion, without love, is like hate, without Love*.
Another contentious – argument that Christians like-to challenge misfits, with is Jesus said – ‘Go Sin No More’ – to the adulterous woman. True that, but he also said – ”You without sin, cast the first stone”.
By the time you comb the bible out from top to bottom – you would find out that – every single one of those prophets or people you are preaching on, were not perfect. From Abraham, the father of faith who had concubines, to Moses who parted the red sea, the murderer, who was stubborn as a mewl.
So I say again – ‘You without sin, cast the first stone ..’

Now, where did this come from and how did it end up on Facebook? Oh what the hell. It’s only a Kiss. At least, someone is not a hypocrite for once. Practising what they preach. Hope it’s real :: becuz, that looks like a shock on Michelle and Oprah’s faces on either side. This takes public display of affection to a hightend ground. Could not be more proud for these two. How Bromantic; for what it’s worth. I do like a good practical joke. Maybe you don’t.
