After son reveals gay status, Doyin Okupe prays God intervene

NEWS DIGEST – Bolu Okupe, son of former presidential aide, Dr Doyin Okupe, disclosed Thursday to his Instagram followers that he was gay. His father, in response to the revelation, has blamed it on a major spiritual challenge.

Bolu took to Instagram in a rainbow short, flying a rainbow flag [symbol of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer pride movement] and captioned it “Yes I’m gay AF.”

Dr Okupe, who served as the spokesman to President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, in a twitter thread explained he was opposed to his son new-found sexual orientation.

He said: “My attention has been drawn to a publication of my 27yr old son, Bolu Okupe, in which he declared publicly that he is Gay. I gave him that name MOBA OLUWARIN, (I WALKED WITH GOD) because he was born at the time I gave my life to Christ.

“I have been aware of this his new orientation for a while now. He knows that as a Christian and a witness for Christ (an evangelist) I am vehemently opposed to homosexuality as it runs contrary to the avowed precepts of my Christian faith.

“For me I look beyond the surface or the physical. Here I see a major spiritual challenge ahead but I know as my God liveth, this whole saga will end up in praise to the Almighty Jehova who I serve day and night.”

Okupe ended with a prayer to God referencing Isaiah 59 vs 1 “Behold, the hand of the Lord is not shortened that it cannot save . . . .”

Criticism
Since disclosing his sexual orientation on Thursday, more than 1000 persons have taken to Bolu’s Okupe Instagram to reveal their displeasure or roll in support.

@blue web_foundation commented “Somewhere I Kenya u could be a corpse We Blackcolored Never go against our God! Stay with ur stupidity in france.”

Bolu replied: “Your whole mentality is tragic & I feel sorry for you. Your religion has turned you into a psychotic imbecile that you actually think it’s okay to kill people?

“First, you said « stay in France with your stupidity » sir, who do you think have Africans Christianity? It was the French and English who pushed the religion on you that you are calling « Black colored » you should educate yourself a little bit.

“Second, the Europeans who gave you your religion have since moved past that because the world has developed while people like you are still stuck in the 18th century, and you should know that the same religion that you so deeply cherish, gave people a justification to enslave your ancestors in the past.

“And if you really think making someone a « corpse » because of sexual orientation is justifiable then you and your « God » are the worst type of demonic scum. You are extremely delusional and I hope one day you will educate yourself, if not I really don’t care, you will die ignorant and on the wrong side of history.”
