My son’s homosexual status is a spiritual challenge – Doyin Okupe
A former Presidential aide, Dr. Doyin Okupe, indicates his son’s decision to openly declare himself a gay is a spiritual challenge.
Okupe made this known in a series of tweets while reacting to a viral photo showing his son, Bolu, wearing rainbow boxers with the caption, “Yes, I am gay”.
He, however, said he was hopeful that God would intervene.
Okupe, who served under former Presidents Olusegun Obasanjo and Goodluck Jonathan, said that he had been aware of his son’s sexual orientation for quite some time.
Okupe tweeted, “I have been aware of this his new orientation for a while now. He knows that as a Christian and a witness for Christ (an evangelist), I am vehemently opposed to homosexuality as it runs contrary to the avowed precepts of my Christian faith.
“For me, I look beyond the surface or the physical. Here I see a major spiritual challenge ahead but I know as my God liveth, this whole saga will end up in praise to the Almighty Jehovah who I serve day and night.
“For it is written: Behold, the hand of the Lord is not shortened that it cannot save, neither is His ear dead that he cannot hear. Isaiah 59 vs 1.”
