Popular fitness model and Nigerian gay man, Bolu Okupe has stated that he has a problem with gay Christians who believe the Bible is not against homosexuality.
The 28-year-old son of former presidential aide, Doyin Okupe, who came out as gay in January 2021, took to Twitter to share his reservation about such people.
According to him, he has a problem with gay Christians who make attempts to convince him that Christianity is in support of homosexuality, when it is clearly against it.
He wrote on Saturday, March 21, “I don’t have an issue with Gay Christians. I have an issue with Gay Christians who try to convince me that Christianity / The Bible is not opposed to homosexuality, when it clearly is.”
His tweet has elicited different reactions from netizens who tried to explain that the Bible is subject to the interpretation of the reader, hence why some people interpret it to be in support of homosexuality.
