Groomsman Walks Out Of Wedding As Baptist Church Tells Him To Remove His Earring by Kingosytex(m): 9:40pm On Oct 04
A Nigerian man identified as Opeyemi, has narrated how a Baptist church asked him to take off his earring while he was on a groomsman duty in the church.

According to Opeyemi, he left and waited for his friend who fully backed his decision at the wedding reception and there is a mixed reactions about his decision as many wondered why he could not just take them off for a few hours.

Opeyemi, narrating the encounter, he said that he was at a Baptist church in Lagos as one of the groomsmen for his friend’s wedding when he was asked to pull off his earrings, adding that he left the service immediately for the reception as he would never follow such dogma.

He, therefore, used the opportunity to lambaste Nigerians version of Christianity. When people told him that he ought to have honoured his friend and acted accordingly, he said his friend was in full support of him.

Reverend Later Apologizes But Groom's Best-Man Felt Wounded Already After Disgrace When Driven Out Of Church For Wearing Earrings To Friends Wedding Ceremony.

It was later revealed that the reverend who drove the groom's bestman out of the church ground for putting on Earrings to his friend's wedding ceremony, later apologized for the public embarrassment he baptized Opeyemi with.

The apology came after the groom's bestman, Opeyemi had stayed outside the church for hours till the end of the wedding ceremony which eventually deprived him of discharging his duty to which he was contacted, prepared and came for.

It would be right to say that the apology did not go well with the victim but could not let his feelings known at that moment due to the respect he had for the clergyman which led him into faking a smile in a captured photo with him and the said reverend. This he did not to ruin the happiest day of his beloved friend.

While expressing how he felt after the event had ended, the embarrassed groom's bestman took to his social media handle to drag the Baptist Church Reverend and Christiandom as a whole.

Inline with this, reactions have started trailing the media space as to the right and wrong aspect of this incident which took place on Saturday, 2nd of October, 2021 at Baptist Church, Isolo area of Lagos State.

The guy said ����
Why apologizing when he knew what he did was right??
Does it mean he knew that he went too far??

My people how una see the mata?

Hmmm.....@King

Truely, Religion is the opium of the people of africa..

Btw, what's with male folks wearing earrings even on both ears and then proceed to dreadlock their hair Hanty Anita??

Some even patronize wools and Lush just to keep the dreadlocks. ...

Well, I hope these guys wont run away when God would want to create Menstruation period as a part of their body system since they all want to act like Woman these days.. shocked shockedshocked

Well you disrespected that friend who invited you to the wedding.
And to the friend that supported him is very stupid.

That's the least I can say.

I respect everyone's opinion about life but

Sometimes we show ego and pride for the wrong reasons.

I guess that Person wasn't really your friend, probably just an associate

People love being stupid for the wrong reasons. The place of work this idiot goes may make it mandatory to dress with a tie and a suit ,but the mumu never considered that dogmatic. But when it comes to respecting the doctrines of a church, he quickly refers to it as dogma. Nonsense

Okay...


All I can say is that the man is tormented by guilt and uncertainty stemming from introspection which must have convicted him of pride, thoughtlessness and sheer iberiberism.

Perhaps, validation from people would help him know what to feel at the moment.

The both parties were unable to reach a compromise and that led to the young man exiting the wedding in acrimony.

On the contrary, as I beg to differ and propose that true and pure religion, which has no flaws or fault and such that God approves us is not opium of anyone talkless people of Africa, its false religion, bigotry, hypocrisy and the Pharisaical spirit thats the opium of people, the sheepole most especially

Conflict of interest. His principle won the day

The reverend had no right to walk him out of the church ya undecided and it was even a wedding ceremony shuuuu undecided okmwèn.

The reverend could have asked the groom to talk to his friend not calling out the friend.

In his mind he is right and much more civilised.

That's the arrogant and selfish youth of today.

If it was at work or an embassy now they gave him the same rule, you will see him trembling to remove it.

Correct guy.

Do Nigeria politicians wear ear rings? Yet they are one of the most corrupt politicians on this crust .

Meanwhile, they are mostly accepted at Church and mosque anytime.

Hypocrisy in Religion
