    This video begs the question in the title...

    Does homosexual activity conflict with the constructs of "Christianity", the "Christian Church", and "Biblical Lexicon and Canons"?

    Can the "God" of the "Holy Bible" anoint and ordain a people proudly engaged in homosexual activity?

    If one is not aware, the Pastor of this church (Aaron B Jones-Wade) is "joined" to the the so called "First Gentleman of the Church", sexual/sodomy partner Job D Jones-Wade.



    The guest speaker (preacher) was Bishop Kwabena Rainey Cheeks, a Priest in the African Tradition of Akan, and Senior Pastor of Inner Light Ministries in Washington, DC.
    Cheeks also proclaims to be homosexual

    Standing outside the famous "C Street House," Moses' pastors from Inner Light Ministries in Washington, DC, speak about the dire consequences of the "Kill the Gays" bill moving through the Ugandan Parliament right now and how you can help stop it.








    So the next question is, how does Christianity and African Traditions look at homosexuality?

    Have heard this claim that homosexuality originated in Africa.
    Are there pieces of evidence that support this claim, or are these more attempts to confuse and distract?

    why do people who are not homosexual spend so much time worrying about homosexuals?
    if homosexual is against god then god will handle his business. god don't need you to do it for him. he god.

    why don't we spend our time planning how to get he white mans foot out our butte?

    I honestly think if we are to say we believe in God we should not be Judgemental let God do that its not for you or me.

    I also need to mention that reference to gay or homosexual only mentioned 3 times so that says a lot to me.

    Let him with out sin throw the first stone.

    So in the same context the church would allow a pastor that associates with pedophilia and/or bestiality into it's ranks and minister to others?

    No judgement, just pondering if there are no limits to the supposed sin that is mentioned in the writings that are supposedly being followed to be an "ordained minister", how can the minister deliver the administration of the laws and commandments whilst committing them?

    Can a murderer teach "thou shalt not kill", days after shooting and fatally wounding a 17 year old?
    Can a promiscuous preacher teach "thou shalt not covet another man's wife", days after having intercourse with his deacon's wife?

    Are there any parameters when it comes to the ministry of the so called church?

    Yes in the Odu Ifa, the codified sum of all knowledge and wisdom from Olodumare as handed down my Orunmila. In Odu Iwori irete it says:

    Isu ire lo se e je epo
    Epo ire lo se e je isu
    obinrin du un ba sun ju bii
    bi o ba ba okunrin sun
    bii koko bii eewo bii iku bii agbaarin
    bi o ba ba obinrin sun
    bi lanyunkun bii layagba bii ladun momo
    bi ladun mo ete

    dia fun Orunmila
    baba nlo gba AkalA omo Orisama
    e ma ma te'mo Orisa
    e ma ma te'mo Orisa
    e tee jeje
    e ma ma te'mo Orisa


    "We eat yam with right oil
    we use the right oil to eat yam
    It is very sweet and enjoyable to make love
    with a woman than with a man
    if you make love with a man
    bumps boils and mucus and other diseases develop
    if you make love to a woman
    it is pleasing, sweet and enjoyable
    this was the Ifa divination for Orunmila
    when he was going to rescue Akala
    The child of oosa."

    Note this was the declaration for Orunmila. In other words and example to follow with respect to culture.

    One huge piece of evidence is that homo sapiens begin in Africa. Like religion, a persons sexual preference should be left out of any discusion on how to improve the Black race. Who you have sex with is a personal choice no one else has to emulate.
