Of course, I expected the Christian illiterate vultures to come for Wiyaala; for speaking the truth about the increasing noise in our churches—and for saying, she stopped going to church for that reason.
It’s only a thick individual who would think noise in churches should not be regulated in Ghana—and would fail to see the sense in Wiyaala’s statement in relation to modern day churches.
Even if I put my religious revulsion aside, I would still have deep problems with the way churches operate in Ghana, somewhat unregulated. They do what they want and at where they want it.
If you live near any church in Ghana, you are a dead man/woman walking—and woe unto you if you complain about their excessive noise. Certainly, you would find people like Morris Baby Face coming for your head.
The former secular musician now turned a church mouse has asked God to forgive Wiyaala for saying she stopped going to church because of the noise—and his argument even tells you how dense he is…
Morris is reported to have said; “Did Wiyaala say churches make unnecessary noise praising God and praying to him? How I wish there is sense in what she’s said. You play your secular music in very loud speakers for people to dance, sing and praise the devil by doing the unnecessary and you have a problem with those who will make a joyful noise unto the Lord? Well, I think you must put some clothes on to be taken serious. GOD FORGIVE YOU.”
What Morris is not smart enough to spot is that, people actually go to clubs or concerts for this loud music; that is their choice and also concerts are regulated. But when it comes to churches, people do not necessary go there for the increasing loud noise and they sort of have this ‘sacred status’ in Ghana, allowing them to do whatever. Also, I do not see the noise as worthy of anything to God. If God is indeed everywhere and nowhere, must you shout for Him to hear you? Must you amplify the shout?
Must praises be this loud?
