‘Pope Didn’t Fully Support Gay Civil Unions, Comments Taken Out Of Context’ – Vatican

The Vatican says comments by Pope Francis on civil union laws in a documentary last month were taken out of context and did not signal a change in Church doctrine on homosexuals or support for same-sex marriage. The documentary Francesco, which premiered at the Rome film festival on October 21, made headlines for a comment in which the pope says that homosexuals have a right to be in a family and that civil union laws covering homosexuals are needed. The pope's comments prompted praise from liberals and calls for urgent clarification from conservatives. Last week, the Vatican's Secretariat of State quietly sent an 'explanatory note' to its ambassadors, who sent it to bishops. The note was first reported by papal biographer Austen Ivereigh.

It Is A Sin To Be A Tenant In A Rented Apartment – Pastor Charles Osazuwa

Charles Osasuwa, founder of Rock of Ages Christian Assembly Inc, has said it is a sin to live in a rented apartment. He said this in a message on his Facebook wall on Thursday. He went on to explain that it is actually a sin for Christians to live in a rented apartment because they will end up having two lords – Jesus and the landlord.

Pictures As COZA Had First Physical Church Service In Abuja After Ease Of Lockdown

As Federal Government announced the ease of lockdown for opening of churches. See how COZA Abuja abided by all the guidelines for the first physical church. The Reverend Biodun Fatoyinbo who is the general overseer of the church wrote on his facebook page. It was a homecoming service for COZA Abuja members and we couldn’t help but prepare for the safety of all our members. Disinfecting tunnels, sanitising pods, temperature checks and social distancing were some of the measures deployed to comply with the FG’s guidelines.

As much as I hate the death sentence, no punishment is too severe for a rapist- Pastor Adeboye

Pastor Enoch Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God RCCG, has said that as much as he hates the death penalty, no punishment meted on a rapist is too severe. In a video broadcasted on Dove TV on Sunday, June 14, the clergyman condemned the act, saying it leaves an eternal scar on women. Speaking specifically about UNIBEN student, Uwaila Omozuwa, who was raped and murdered in one of the RCCG parishes in Edo state, the clergyman said he and his prayer warriors will not stop until the perpetrators of the dastard act are fished out and brought to justice. In his words I just want to put on record my humble opinion about the crime of rape. In my own opinion, there is hardly any crime more grievious than that of rape. Maybe with the possible exceptio...
