Pardon me, I can’t find any right phrase for actor-Majid Michel’s grand delusion—but for a 21st century actor who claims to be one of the best in Africa to say homosexuals are abomination and his sole source of reference is the Bible, a bronze age badly written life manuscript, then surely we have a lot on our hands to deal with as people.
Do not underestimate the power of a group of credulous people but if you have those who ought to know better joining the camp—then once again, it surely is going to be a long battle, made so by the fact that these people genuinely believe in the Bible and sure do think everything in there is sent from a celestial father.
In one of the videos below, Majid Michel clearly states that he sees homosexuals as abomination and cannot fathom how any Christian who believes in the Bible could tolerate homosexuals or be one. And this is positioned on the fact that he believes in everything in the Bible, perhaps not just believe everything but thinks they all ought to be acted upon.
The Bible says a lot about homosexuals, such as; homosexuals are abomination and they deserve to be killed (Leviticus 20:13). As someone who believes everything in the Bible, I sincerely hope Majid Michel also believes homosexuals ought to be put to death—else he is a chicken.
It does not end there, the Bible also demands that these people should be put to death; Witches (Exodus 22:17), Fornicators (Leviticus 21:9 ), Fortunetellers (Leviticus 20:27), Adulterous men and women (Leviticus 20:10), any person who hits his mother or father (Exodus 21:15), Followers of Other Religions (Exodus 22:19), Nonbelievers (2 Chronicles 15:12-13), False Prophets (Zechariah 13:3), Kill the Entire Town if One Person Worships Another God (Deuteronomy 13:13-19), Kill Women Who Are Not Virgins On Their Wedding Night (Deuteronomy 22:20-21)—and there is certainly more.
Of course this is pure nonsense and yet, we seem stuck with millions of ignorant individuals who believe in this—and to have a 21st century ‘sophisticated’ actor equally believing in this is just not absurd, it’s deeply shameful.
We have educated theologians, pastors and Bible scholars like-Dr. William Craig, the Archbishop of Canterbury-Justin Welby, Australian cardinal of the Roman Catholic Church-George Pell and several others taking a distant position—sort of saying, not everything in the Bible ought to be believed (not everything is true) and they embrace homosexuality. In fact, last year the Archbishop of Canterbury-Justin Welby said gay marriage is ‘great’.
Recently, the Presbyterian Church of United States welcomed Gay marriage when they are all using the same Bible—yet you have an African whom the Bible was brought to by missionaries (who have changed their positions to reflect the century we live in) championing religious dogmatism…
It’s not just Majid Michel’s ignorance and lack of touch with the century he lives in that become vivid in the interview. In another video from the same interview, he talks about how the Holy Spirit visits him regularly to speak to him. And this is the sort of delusion this man is surrounded by—capable of making any sane person believe homosexuals ought to be killed or are abomination. Maybe his wife need to check him into a psychiatric hospital for mental evaluation—because the last time I heard, the mad man near by house was also being visited by angels and aliens.
All I’ll say is; it’s pathetic! The sad ending is; you can see Majid Michel’s wife in the audience smiling—forgetting that, the Bible positions women as inferior human beings and perpetuates gender discrimination. And her husband believes this is all RIGHT while she smiles to it.
The hovering ignorance lies in Stacy and Majid’s mention of ‘Sodom and Gomorrah’ as though it actually happened—when almost every smart person or Bible scholar knows this is one of many Biblical myths, just like the Adam and Eve story told for religious purpose.
Can you imagine Ben Affleck ever making such comments? The era of enlightenment must have jumped past Africa.
