Church of England to ordain Nigeria gay preacher as priest

The Church of England is set to ordain a Nigerian gay preacher, Jide Macaulay, as an Anglican priest in June this year.

Macaulay, 53, shared the news of his planned ordination on social media where he wrote: “It is a delight to share this news, I am to be ordained Anglican Priest in the Church of England in June 2019. ‘Wait on the Lord, be of Good courage and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait I say, on the Lord’ Psalm 27:14.”

It would be recalled that Macaulay was reported to have left Nigeria some years back after his efforts to set up a gay church failed
