Gay pastor from Nigeria visits Foundry Methodist in Washington

Michael Lavers reports on the visit of a gay Nigerian minister to Foundry United Methodist Church near Dupont Circle in Washington DC in the Blade, story here. 

The pastor is Rev. Jide Macaulay, who has also led a “straight” married life and produced a son.
He had also two men from South Africa in his home in London, when he was introduced to MCC London (which I attended once, in 1982).

He described the deteriorating climate in many sub-Saharan African countries since the middle 2000’s when Nigeria passed its vitriolic anti-gay law, prohibiting gays from meeting, disguised as an anti-gay marriage law. He described a world of violence and kidnappings.
