Former presidential spokesman, Dr. Doyin Okupe, has described his son’s decision to openly declare himself a homosexual as a spiritual challenge.
Okupe stated this 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”.
The former aide to ex-Presidents Olusegun Obasanjo and Goodluck Jonathan explained that as an evangelist, he would never support homosexuality because it completely negates Christian values.
Okupe, however, expressed hope about God’s divine intervention, disclosing that adding that he got to know about his son’s homosexual orientation some time ago.
He 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.”
