Jide Macaulay, gay founder of house of rainbow fellowship, ordained deacon in Anglican church.

So, we have already had a very long and detailed discussion about homosexuality on this site.  You can find the posts here, here, here and here.

I also believe that Jide Macaulay should be well known to readers. If not, he is the “pastor” of the first Nigerian gay church.  But his “gospel” was not well received and he had to leave the country. Brief intro to him and his ministry:

Now he is carrying out his evangelism in the UK, where his views are protected by law.  Anyways, he has apparently become a deacon in an Anglican church in the UK.

Story below:

Five years after he was forced to leave Nigeria for the United Kingdom following threats to his life, Nigeria’s first openly gay preacher and the founder of House of Rainbow Fellowship, a Christian community for s*xual minorities and marginalised people, Reverend Jide Macaulay, has been ordained a Deacon of the Anglican Church on Sunday in Chelmsford, United Kingdom.

The Bishop of Chelmsford, the Right Reverend Stephen Cotterel, will hold the ordination service at the Chelmsford Cathedral.

Reverend Macaulay will serve as the Curate in the East Ham Parish, London. He is believed to have inspired many ethnic minority people in the Newham area of London when in 2000 he played Jesus in 2000 Newham Millennium Passion Play.

Anyways, the state of the Anglican church worldwide is another story for another day. The Nigerian church has been very instrumental in fighting that battle. I may do an article on it over the weekend if possible. So any thoughts on Jide and his “ministry”? Na wah o!
