An Inspiring Interlude from Lagos.

In contrast to all the sin we’ve been confronting these past few days I thought it would be good for us to turn our eyes instead to something more inspiring: Sunday’s leading article from Nigeria’s best-selling newspaper.

A striking witness to the decadent west, this article probably isn’t safe to read in your workplace, and anyone visiting from Virtue Online should consider themselves warned that it might well set off that habitual problem you keep praying for strength to resist. Having said that, it does show just how marvellously Archbishop Akinola has witnessed to his own hometown, and offers an exciting promise of what Virginian nightlife might someday become once little Martyn Minns has finished introducing African Christian values to apostate Episcopalians.

Enough said; the link is here. Just make sure to clean up your keyboard quickly if you get anything sticky on it. The old “I must have been eating vanilla ice cream” routine never fools anybody.

I’m Father Christian and I teach the Bible.

Goodness, it makes one think that being ¨straight¨ has it´s doublestandard David ¨type¨ Virtues in Akinolas Nigeria...for a moment I was afraid everyone was doing the happyclappy at only the more orthodoxy bragging venues and hadn´t taken time out for the Fine Arts...ah well, the police were busy persecuting at The Rainbow Church and needed a little R & R I sense troubling the heterosexual folk when one has ¨lower than pig¨ Gays to pursue/hate-locate in the name of the REAL true, Akinolan HATE God!
