Pastor cancels wedding after couple eats from same plate

A pastor stunned a couple in Nigeria after he cancelled a wedding that he was supposed to officiate at because the couple’s behaviour had displeased him.

Why? Because they ate food from the same plate. According to the pastor, the couple had committed a miscarriage of justice after they ate from the same plate a week to their nuptials.

This according to a Twitter user identified as Realoladele, who claimed that the pair were supposed to walk down the aisle on June 8th, 2019. Their traditional wedding had already taken place on June 7th.

The news was met with shock and surprise from both families with news hitting the bride, in particular, the hardest. Read Realoladele’s tweets of the unsettling story below;

Many responded to Realoladele’s post with shock and consternation. Some of the comments are below;

Alchemist; Sheer madness! I will dust my feet n be done with the church! No human being would spoil my wedding day. Is he GOD!!!
‘Youngest Old Man 💭; If you can’t keep church doctrine, there’s a court wedding.
Euphrates; Or you change denomination, there are a thousand and one of them in this country.
ᶜᵃˡˡ ᵐᵉ Ricky ͂ ̐ ̈́; I’m a member but I don’t in any way support the actions of the SO, I’m also very certain the GS would not support his actions too. He went overboard with this one really. I know the rules guiding our MC but for God’s sake they only shared a meal together.
Pepple Medlyn Tonye; So you know there’s nothing wrong with sharing a meal right? In that case I bet they wouldn’t have suspended the GO’s kids.

Cases of pastors refusing to conduct wedding ceremonies over issues they have with the couple are rare but do happen. In Nakuru last year, Pastor Jesse Karanja of Mizpah House of Prayer Church in Bahati, Nakuru County cancelled a wedding ceremony that was supposed to take place in his church.

He told the couple, Joyce Waithera and Paul Waithaka to get HIV tests before they could get married. They did the test but he still refused to marry them, scuttling a ceremony that had cost an arm and a leg to prepare!

Pedophiles Have Found A New Way To Express Their Vile Fantasies: Through Twitter

Twitter was in the dock yesterday for allowing self-confessed pedophiles to peddle their vile fantasies online.

Hundreds of men use the social media platform to discuss their sexual preference for children, openly discussing which ages they lust after most.

In some cases, they claimed that their age of attraction was as young as five, the Sun reported.

Many of the pedophiles use Disney characters and other cartoon images in their profiles, potentially boosting their appeal to youngsters.

However, Twitter has refused to do anything about them because the men claim they do not act on their impulses.
The men call themselves non-offending, anti-contact MAPs (minor-attracted person).

Many of them claim having a sexual preference for children is no different to being gay or bisexual, and astonishingly paint themselves as a persecuted minority. Alarmingly they share stories about their contact with youngsters.

One middle-aged man calling himself Robert West said: “I have volunteered to help out with activities for children at an event. I will be helping to keep several children entertained. I helped out last year. It should be fun!”

The social media giant has refused to do anything about the worrying posts.

A spokesman said yesterday the men had neither acted illegally nor broken Twitter’s rules. “As we make clear in our Twitter rules and policies, we have zero tolerance for child sexual exploitation on Twitter,” said the spokesman.

“This specific set of issues is one we were recently made aware of, and have discussed with law enforcement. While it appears none of this activity is illegal, nor in breach of our policies – and absolutely no content is being shared – we are always reviewing our policies to ensure we are one step ahead of bad actors on our platforms.”

Politicians and charities lambasted Twitter and called for urgent action.

The Prime Minister’s spokesman said: “All companies should have a zero tolerance approach to content that promotes or facilitates the sexual abuse of a child, even if the content is not directed at them. There are laws which cover this, and we would expect companies to enforce this and respond to reports of disturbing content.”
