Nigerian Gay Church Resume Operations In Lagos

Less than five years after Nigeria-only gay church, House of Rainbow, was attacked by some Lagos residents and consequently closed down in Nigeria, the church has returned to the country with three secret groups in the African most populous nation.

With this development, Nigeria appears to lead other countries where the church currently operates.

Founded by Nigerian-born gay, Rev. Rowland Jide Macaulay, House of Rainbow, which came to Nigeria in 2006, is “an inclusive and affirming religious community open and welcome to all people including sexual minorities and marginalised people, a monthly gathering of ‘people of faith’ for ‘prayer and praise’, which focuses on the person’s journey towards reconciliation of sexuality and spirituality.”

Macaulay, a trained lawyer and son of a reverend who owns a massive church in Lagos, is leading the comeback even though he remains in self-imposed exile in London, where sources said he currently enjoys lots of financial sponsorship for the movement.

Unlike in the pre-2008 when the church openly operated at Jakande Estate, Isolo, and Berger in Lagos, Macaulay, who is the backbone of the movement, is not secretive of the meeting places and time of the church in Nigeria, but has instituted a very stringent process to screen prospective members of coming to join the church.

It was learnt that aside Nigeria, the church has two groups each in Ghana and United Kingdom (UK).

“We now have new groups in Malawi and Ghana. There are currently three groups in Nigeria, two each in Ghana and the UK and one each in Malawi, Lesotho and Burundi. All these groups are managed by volunteers,who are appointed through a rigorous ‘Local Leader Application’ process.

“We currently have 12 appointed Local Leaders in 6 countries. Currently we have over 25 outstanding applications for local leaders including, but not limited to the following locations: France, Netherlands, Cote d’Ivoire, Sierra-Leone. This has continued to strengthen the interest and work of House Of Rainbow particularly in Africa,” Macaulay

    Gay is evil . But if dey chooe d devil way so be it

  • That is the lifestyle of a Whiteman and his religion of Christianity that one can do whatever he likes without being checked. They introduced the hatred of Islam and Sharia which their followers in Nigeria promote through abuses and allegation because Sharia says whoever has fornication with his fellow sex will be punished through stoning. Now homosexuality is advocated by churches a part from other vices being committed such as fucking married women, leading gang of armed robbers by many pastors, lending arms to criminals hidden in the churches, etc.

    • Mama says:

      U are really stupid and foolish for that idiotic statement…..is book haram God……do u not know that wether u are gay or not sin is sin and God will judge u the same way…….boko haram has no justification cos they are not holier than them……u ple think other sins are less grievous than this……I don’t support homosexuality but ple shld stop talking as if they r better……before God sin is sin so nobody has the right to kill anybody cos they feel they are less holy…..so shut that Ur stinking mouth cos boko haram has no right to kill…..

    @sanusi or whatever your name is,i having been following your illerate,misinformed,barbaric coments on this media. You should be careful with you insane utterances here.is it everything you should exhibit your religious fanatism. If you do not know what to say please shut up .is illerates like you that BH uses for their senseless bombing.be warned

    • Austina-Ami says:

      Touche Musa. That was a tough one. And @Sanusi, the lord Jesus Christ never taught homosexuality. If you can take time to open the Bible, you will realise that the act of homosexuality is frowned upon. Those groups are not of Christ.

  • Charles says:

    Gay is evil and can never be a church, their are not christian but secret cult group. May God save his people from the evil of end time. Amen

  • Adeyemi olaoluwa. says:

    The world is at her End. Jesus is coming soon. Gay church, is equally Demonic church centre. ‘DCC.’ so, God destroyed Sodom and gomarrah due to this homosexualism and other sex perversions. E.g..Oral sex, Anal sex, lesbianism are all Demonic. ¤Jesus Comes ¤. D chosen.

  • Mayor says:

    First the illuminates is taking in over our music and move starts little by little it seems like people are not talking about that, now Hmmm Gay church in Nigeria our country is turning out to be the America of Africa. what do we call this one revelation we are now in the last vase of the bible REVELATION (END TIME) so many things is been revealed may God help his people.

  • Ok, now some of you are calling me illiterate for saying that churches are promoting vices such as having sex with married women,pastors leading armed robbers gang,hiring arms to criminals, etc. Also some say Christianity does not permit homosexual and another person there threatening and warning me. Therefore,what some of you have been calling Moslems and Islam whenever a Moslem commits any crime? You often say Islam promotes violence and Boko Haram is Islamic. So how do you refer evil to someone faith and sanctify yours cleverly?

  • PETER says:

    We the book TIMOTHY tell us in the END time stranges like these will happen,pls condem nobody you are to focuse on the way that you have chosen,and prayer that sain will not fall into their trap.THEYare anti-christ there one condition U S now they are not meet up they can transert business nor banking,here is NIGERIAS own.

  • Omotola koletowo says:

    @Musa, Sanusi is very right. U r saying they r nt church product wen Its obvious dat its christians dat r improving this devilish act as u can see in the picture. May Allah open d eyes of everyone of you before its too late. Come to Islam coz it’s d only righteous religion for all of us

    • Mama says:

      Omotola u are an idiot u and Ur stupid mouth……who told you there are no Muslim homosexuals? The Hausa ple have had gays as long as u can remember……what do u think a lot of these alhajis do? Hypocrites u think Islam is better than Christianity , u are a bloody joker…..u will be the first victim of that satanic boko haram

      • Mama…i tink u shuld listen to omotola nd sinusi. They ar both say’n d truth, u guys know that xtianity can neva be compared with islam. Allahu akbar

        • @Lady, it is either u ar a gay or lesbian. For i see no reason y u shuld write such comment. May God punish u….idiot

        • U xtians dnt kno anytin abt ur own religion. U only listen to wat ur pastors tells u. Anyway @Lulu, 4 ur in4mation….every prophet of God, is d truth, d way nd d light. U wil neva go 2 God(d father) except u go tru dem….because dey speak or av direct link to God. Durin d days of prophet moses, moses waz d way, d truth nd d light for his people. Becuz dey cuz only go to God(d Father) tru him. Mind u, jesus is no exception bcuz he made dis statment. Jesus is nt God, Lord or son of God. Bt jesus is jst a prophet like every oda prophet that has cum b4 him.

  • me says:

    @ Sanusi and supporter sister
    (Omotola), I assume U̶̲̥̅̊ saw the part where BH said they won’t stop killing innocent people until they turn the state to an Islamic one. If that’s what U̶̲̥̅̊ support then I’ll rather die a Loving Christian than a violent Muslim. I’m not an hater of Islam, everyone have the right to choose whom to follow. But it’s people like U̶̲̥̅̊ that makes people insult Islam. U̶̲̥̅̊ better go and change before God visit U̶̲̥̅̊ with his wrath for spoiling and soiling people that are identified with him. Because if U̶̲̥̅̊ say Christians are the one supporting this shameful act then U̶̲̥̅̊’re involving God also. I pray God will forgive U̶̲̥̅̊. We Nigerians are people of morals, we should not be known for this satanic act. People this is a time for repentance. The Kingdom of God is at hand. I’m not even surprised that they call themselves Christian! What would Satan have done if not blind the people more to the truth and discouraged them from seeing the light. Would they have said they are demonic? If U̶̲̥̅̊’re wise U̶̲̥̅̊’ll see what the devil is trying to do thru this people.

Goa and read the bible if u are a Christian, you are all hell bound if u d not repent like them…. So stop r sanctimonious bullshit and go and sleep….it is their life and don’t c y anyone shld go to jail cos of their sexual preference….homosexuality is bad but nobody shld be jailed cos of that period…..

      Bullshit with Ur religion……..u are all pretenders…go to the north and see how gays is practiced by Hausa Muslim men and u sit here and talk rubbish…….a religion that encourages men to be dogs and sleep around with women evn small girls…..or is it those stupid Saudi men in Jeddah that will be begging women for sex, or is it the Arab mentor go to Europe and look for prostitutes? Go to the island of Zanzibar in dar es salaam and see how gay men are all over the place…..pls don’t open Ur ignorant mouth when u have never left the four walls of your father,s house……Muslims are not more holier than Christian cos they pray five times a day………no religion can lay claims to be holier cos u have bad that claim each faith, however the truth remains that Jesus is the only way…..

  • RAYMOND says:

    Does this means that Africa will remain followers of the dirty white men’s life forever? Cant we do our things our own way? Cant we put up our laws as we want? why must we listen to the final verdict of the evil white region before we could take up our own final decision? Well the country Nigeria will soon be no more and before then, should the government allow this Gay shit to be in place, shame and destruction will never depart from the generation of the leaders in whose time this will be into practice. What a shame? which bible will this ass holes be preaching on? the same that says “GO YE INTO THE WORLD BE FRUITFUL AND MULTIPLY”? Someone tell me please, how they evil mongers are going to be fruitful or multiply? Shame unto them and the evil so called Jide. My he and his generation be wiped off for bringing such demonic ideas to Africa.

    • Mama says:

  • Kayode says:

    It still surprises me that some folks claim they live donkey years in the North yet they still talk as if there are no other religions and deity worshiped in the North except Islam. We all have passion for our dear respective religion be it Islam or Christianity but it will be so FOOLISH for anyone to judge the activities of a single individual or group as the entirety of the religion they claim to represent. Several vested interests are submerged in peoples’ actions thus the only way to gain popularity and support is to use a widely supported domain such as religion as a backup as in the case of Boko-Haram and the Rev. Rowland Jide Macaulay’s Church.
    Therefore, the actions and inactions of a group of people can never be a yard stick to measure the real substance of an entire religion which is unarguably a way of life.

  • Anna Ben says:

    Watch and pray so that you will not enter into temptation. They may not tell you their names before they lure the even the elects into opposition to God Almighty. It is time to trust only in the righteousness and obedient of our savior Jesus Christ to save us from judgment of this end time. Every body can not be as blessed as Simon Peter whom Christ save for the sake of others. Be careful. Whether you are judging or not, to be wise is to fear God and to depart from evil is have understand

    A true christain does not go online insulting people. Every man has d rite to worship. A true muslim fear God and believes in peace- have u watch peace TV? Then those of you busy cursing one another with the umbrella of religion are neither true christains or muslims. Gay is not and will not be right.

  • noxy says:

    accept it lesians and gays r here to stay why worry r u the one going to hell ,all of u should not bother ur selves becoz we r happy people if we r going there why worry and insulting each other.GOD IS FOR ALL .CHURCH IS NOT THE BUILD BUT UR BODY.

  • Yusuf sule says:

    For u both christain and Muslim, one thing we should accept is that what ever wrong we do today is never part of our religion and it should be blame on the person not there religion, niether boko haram, gay nor lesbian etc, all this evil did is not part of our religion rather part of the persons way of life, they use religion to carry out there evil characters. That’s what I feel and it’s the truth. That’s why I feel we should always check our holy book rather than waiting for our fellow religion worshipers to make mistake and use it to judge relegion. @sanusi, @omotola, pls, Allah, is there to judge pple and kindly lev pple with there way of doing things. May Allah help us all

  • thurzy sule says:
