Priests should guide their parishioners and not attack them - Chimamanda Adichie replies Catholic Parish Priest who verbally attacked her during her mother's funeral mass (video)

Chimamanda Adichie has replied a Catholic Parish Priest who verbally attacked her over comments she made about the Catholic church in Nigeria, during her mother's funeral mass in Abba community of Enugu state.

The celebrated author who revealed that she left the church angrily over the Parish Priest’s verbal attack, said she came back to explain what she said during the interview about the Catholic Church in Nigeria because Abba community and the Catholic Church in the community mean a lot to her.

Adichie noted that the Parish priest has had several opportunities to call her privately to explain her stance but never did. She also added that Priests are meant to guide parishioners and not attack them.

Recounting how the priest alleged that she said she doesn’t attend Catholic Church in Nigeria because it is all about money, she explained that what she said in the interview is there are good things about the Catholic Church but she doesn’t like when people are forced to give money.

The author also gave an instance of witnessing parishioners being locked out because the church was holding a fundraiser. Adichie concluded by saying that people should not be forced to give money, but to support the church willingly.

very bad journalism, first of all is ABBA not Aba, and ABBA is in Anambra state and not Enugu state, with these mistakes we do know, how much more of many other mistakes we don't know about

Jus imagine how over 20something ppl rushed to book space without any reasonable comment or contributions... Seriously some parishes take undue advantage of some families when they com to make burial arrangements

I support her on this particular occasion, even though I do not agree with many of her feminist views.
The way offering is done in church these days leaves much to be desired. And it's not just the Catholic Church o. It's everywhere.
