“I am a Gay man…let me deal with my God and my Soul” – South African Choreographer says after Storming out of Church over his Pastor’s Sermon on Homosexuality



South African choreographer, Somizi Mhlongo, took to his Instagram page to rant about opposition towards the LGBT community. The choreographer stormed out of a church service after a Ghanaian Bishop, Dag Heward-Mills at Grace Bible Church said being homosexual is unnatural.

He had quite a lot to say on Instagram in a video posted today.

He captioned the video “No opinion or advice needed. I’m just venting.”

      Abeg help me ask him oh, IS THIS NATURAL? If it was NATURAL they should be reproducing themselves and NOT ADOPTING innocent children. If a MALE PARTNER can produce a child, then we will start accepting your Perverted hazzzz!!!!!

      Dictionary definition of PERVERTED —
      (of a person or their actions) characterized by sexually abnormal and unacceptable practices or tendencies.

      BN didn’t post my comment last year in response to this issue so here’s me hoping they will this time:

      Scientists have been working on making it so that barren couples and gay guys and girls can have children through stem cell procedures. In three different countries (and counting) female and male rats have successfully had children without the opposite sex.

      It’s done by turning a skin or whatever other body part cell into a sperm cell or egg cell, depending on whatever we the couple doesn’t have in order for fertilization to occur.

      The science is far from ready for humans, but I give it 30 years or less. What then?

      How is quoting the bible and preaching judging? So for instance, the pastor should not preach against stealing because it makes thieves uncomfortable? Oh please.

      Bimbo the bible says in Romans 1 from verse 25 or 26 that God hates homosexuality and it is unnatural to him and that he gives up doers of it to their reprobate minds. Re-iterating the bible is not fighting for God, that’s what church is for. You cannot be actively gay i.e sinning and be a child of God. He made them male and female. Even the animals are male and female.

      The bible is judging you, not the Christians. Both homosexuality & fornication are 2 sins no one wants to be confronted with. If you are practicing these sins of course you don’t want to hear it.

      @keke driver. Please I am just trying to learn. Is it ACTUALLY natural? At what age did you discover it? Is it that you never feel aroused when you see a VERY beautiful and sexy woman? Just puzzled.

      My question is why do some gay people insist on sticking to Christianity? ‘Gay christian’ seems like an oxymoron to me; the bible does you no favours. Surely, there are other ways to God?! – Christianity does not have monopoly on this. Why not take a different route to finding God?

    I’m tired of all this “Homosexuality is not natural” statements. The facts and evidence are there for everyone with a functioning brain to see. Remember, this is the Information age. Homosexuality is as old as Mankind. It’s as natural as you are alive to read my words.

    Bn “Straight” is not the standard. It’s just popular.

    This pastor is a doctor how can he not know that over 1500 animal species exhibit homosexuality and that homosexuality has been around longer than the Bible? You can read out your Bible verses but saying extra things like this make you appear ignorant. It is also interesting to me how rare homosexuality is but that is what pastors love to focus on. If Pastors in Africa spent more time lambasting corruption, cruelty to employees and men cheating on their wives, our societies would be more enjoyable

    • Grace

      Lol.. but it says it’s unnatural in the Bible. And that’s what he said or nah?

    Have you listened to his sermon Grace? He said he’s not seen 2 male dogs or elephants mating so homosexuality is unnatural. This has been scientifically debunked as many animals in fact do it and a simple google ot youtube search provides this info. He didn’t read from the Bible he used his personal experience. Reminds me of how church leaders in the past killed scientists who said the earth was round because of a verse in Psalms about “the four corners of the earth”

    You understand the teachings of Christianity yet you attended a church service… I don’t understand why many homosexuals want the church to validate their act…you DON’T need the church’s approval…do your shit and be happy…Christianity will NEVER approve of it…preaching is not judging! Nobody condemned you to hell…nobody is begging you to be christian, if you must be in church then you must accept its doctrines…

    All these gay people complaining about preachers and their preaching, if you don’t want to hear it don’t f***king go to church jeeeez a pastor is not going to change his beliefs just because you feel uncomfortable. I am sick and tired of these people trying to make everyone look bad just because they don’t agree with your lifestyle, you carried your two legs and entered the church thank God you walked out next time don’t go back ?

Believe me, we are not much different from straight people. we fight, break up, get jealous and whatever. We even have babies, yes babies here in naija. my besty living with her partner with their cute son.They are training together and he answers her surname. I can go on and on. I’m just tired of people thinking being gay is an abstract and strange Idea to Nigerians. I know married women who married men just because of the society. they still run back to girls because that’s who they really are. It’s just crazy to live like this. we be loving in secret. ya’all need to see my baby, she’s a very cute stud. lol. I’m tired of ranting. no one should call the police for me lol

    More and more each day i feel like the WORLD is trying to silence the children of God. We have every right to speak from the Bible and stand by our belief. You have every right to decide that a Bible that condemns your lifestyle is not for YOU. We are not forcing you to love our God or obey His commandments..we pray and fast and hope you do…but IT IS NOT BY FORCE. To try and force us to not preach what is in our Bible in our Church is Wrong of you.
    You don’t get to pick and choose what aspects of Christianity you like because there is no telling what the Holy Spirit will lead any man of God to preach. IT IS NOT PERSONAL. The anger you are experiencing is the CONVICTION of your soul..which is a GREAT thing. It shows that indeed God can still reach are not below redemption…HE LOVES YOU no less. HE IS PATIENT (but don’t take advantage of it)
    Choose a side….LIGHT or DARKNESS. THE WORD or THE WORLD. These two can NOT mix.
    Don’t forget that the turmoil you are experiencing is the same that those who struggle with other various types of sin feel. Let the FORNICATOR, THE LIAR, THE THIEF tell you what they battle each day. IT IS NOT EASY….BUT IT IS NOT IMPOSSIBLE FOR GOD. Your heart just needs to SURRENDER TO HIM.
    I sympathize with you…on some nights i cry with you… on others i pray for you. And i pray now that the great and forgiving love of OUR God will embrace you in its fold and minister gently to you and His Sufficient GRACE will hold your head up in the face of adversity. AMEN.

    P.S: Please continue to go to Church. And if you cant bare it for sometime still continue to listen to sermons. xx

      You’re simply an idiot!

      Using “religion” to defend your bigotry. Are you able to think for yourself? Can you try and apply common sense without decorating it with bible verses. People like you really need to be erased from the face of the earth. There is no need or use for your disgusting and hateful ways. Cover it with the blood of Jesus or whatever other imaginary friend’s blood you like. Bottom line: you’re a bigot. Uneducated. Daft and not progressive.

      The world will be much better place without people like you! Disgusting idiot!

    No one is saying don’t preach against homosexuality Cocoa. People are calling him out because he told a lie that there is no same sex activity in nature and basic science will tell you this isn’t true. Some of us are also tired of pastors focusing on gays who are a small segment of oir society and not corruption or pastors like him enriching themselves while some of their congregants can’t afford a meal. Part of the reason why the world mocks Christians today is we have deviated from how Jesus preached the gospel.

    The main thing Jesus preached was love. He encouraged people to have a relationship with God because he knew if you have a relationship with God, he will direct you as to what to do. Even when he met the Samaritan woman and woman caught in adultery, he didn’t make a big sermon out of their sin but told one privately “to go and sin no more” & the other was so touched by Jesus that she became an evangelist.

    Mocking homosexuals & lying about scientific facts will never change anybody. Making laws to make their lives miserable won’t do that either. Throwing them out of church won’t change anyone. Instead, why don’t we encourage everyone to have about relationship with God & leave God to do the judging and to correct anything if needed?

    I agree my dear. CHRISTIANS hope you’re hearing. Lets lay emphasis on INTIMATE RELATIONSHIP with GOD. You’re right…that is the only way to get the transformation of heart.

    Lets also not forget that the Church itself is under attack. Some “churches” some people go to,…don’t qualify as the body of Christ. AIM FOR THAT PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP so we can rightly DISCERN for ourselves.

If we were enforcing this today I doubt you, DublinKing and many commentators would still be alive Instead of preaching judgment why not preach love as Ellen says above & leave God to do whatever correction there needs to be?

    Gay people want everyone to pander to their needs and anyone not professing how wonderful and normal being gay is not ‘open minded’ (gosh I deteste this word!).
    Being gay is NOT natural no matter how much the media tries to sugar-coat it.

    I have thiefs and liars in my family – but i cant throw them away, i love them all and i cant judge them – their sin is not bigger than mine sin. I leave them to God to judge. So same way i cant judge Somizi. Actually he has a good heart and i like him a lot. He is a fun person and like a friend in my head, just like Denrele. I love them both.

    This is the say way i never i dont judge where my tithe money is going to, i go to creflo dollar and i know what i gain from his teachings so no matter what the media tells me about Pastor Dollar i willneve rleave that church cos i learn a lot from him and i leave God to judge him if he is squandering my money on stuff. I dont care. If we have to listen to this constant bullshit no one will never set foot in any church house.

    Learn not to judge

    I dont condone Gays or Lesbians but i love them as human beings and i pray for them. Simple

    The world will pass away..but my word(truth) would never change. The truth is bitter but better said.even if we r in the 50th century. Gods claim on homosexuality still remains the same. It is wrong and immoral. Enough of Christians compromising their positions for worldly validations. I salute very few pastors as such who are bold to make known the truth. Many a church today be preaching to the needs of people rather than to the freedom of people .u leave church and the whole cycle starts again. Let’s us forever uphold our Christian values which demands that though we be of the world…we should be nothing of it. That’s y I would forever love the late Myles Munroe,john hagee, Joyce Meyer,adeboye et all. If the devil can perpetuate the media with lies and deciet. Y can’t Christians do the same. We should however treat one another with love and by doing draw them to Christ and if they truly believe in him they would be set free..the words I speak to u are spirit and life to those that hear them. Gods word never changes
