HISTORY AND ACHIEVEMENT
Digging deep into his past life, Macaulay’s upbringing affects his perception and attitude towards same-sax orientation. Though he was once married at age 24, his same-sex activities became stronger after his divorce in 1994.
From 1987 to 1999, Macaulay had worked for Crown Prosection Service. Around September 2006, he launched House of Rainbow Fellowship, a religious fellowship to give succor to gay, lesbians, transgender and minors that were marginalized because of their sexual orientation.
CHURCH OF NIGERIA.
In two different occasions, Rowland Jide Macaulay had been honored Man of the year by Black LGBT, UK for his tremendous efforts in uplifting the LGBT family in Nigeria and Africa.
Earlier before now, the Anglican Communion in Nigeria had warned and distanced ‘herself’ from different moves by the Church of England to ordain same-sex activists priests or Bishops in the church.
It is high time the body of Christ (the church) started leading by example as to practicing what they preach in bringing salvation to the world.
Let us know what your take is on this issue; is the Church of England right on anointing people that have decided to preach the gospel not minding their sexual orientation.
