AN Anglican Priest, Rev. Barr Ogbuchukwu Makuo Lotanna of the Nnewi Diocese, has resigned to float a movement that will promote polygamy.
Stonix News reports that the priest has been holding forte in the church as minister for years.
Rev. Lotanna hails from Mbanagu Otolo Nnewi in Nnewi North Local Council Area, Anambra State.
He recently took the bold decision, claiming that he has received a divine mandate from God to embark on a special mission of spreading the message of polygamy among the people.
He said his mission was to reduce the rate of s3xual sins and perversion in the world.
The legal practitioner was ordained an Anglican Priest in 2019, at Cathedral Church of St. Mary’s Uruagu, Nnewi.
The concept of polygamy, a practice which encourages a man to marry more than one wife, is a practised frowned at by most churches.
It is regarded as a sin for a man to engage more than one woman in marital intercourse.
Stonix News avers that polygamy is practised in different societies across the world where men marry as many wives as they can for procreation and s3xual satisfaction.
The practice is however, outlawed in some countries.
Rev. Lotanna stated that although the Anglican church is against polygamy, God has revealed to him that it is not a sin.
He said God’s desires for men is to even marry more than one wife, rather than committing fornication.
Rev. Lotanna, who is also married, said that God hated extra-marital affairs, and divorce.
He urged men to formally marry their girlfriends to avoid the fury of hell fire in the end.
Speaking on his new movement, Lotanna said it will be called Gideonites while the place of worship will be called Gideonites’ Temple.
There’s no official reaction from the Nnewi Anglican Diocese on the development yet.
