She gained national prominence in 2013, after alleging that she had a sexual relationship with married COZA Pastor, Biodun Fatoyinbo. Few days ago, she shared a chat she had with her brother-in-law, and in it, she revealed where she now stands.

Me: I haven’t figured what that is yet and it doesn’t matter as I know I won’t figure all of my questions out before I die. What I know is, this idea of “us vs them” is the main problem we have as humans.
I have gotten to a place in my life where I am in touch with the inner me, the essence, the love that is in all humans. And that helps me see other beings as myself. In the past when I was a christian, I thought anyone that didn’t worship like me or believe in the god I claimed to believe was an enemy. That separation made me judge, hate and criticise others who believed different from me.
This is probably why I don’t do well in groups. Anytime there is a group of people bound by beliefs or the lack of, that group can easily slip into that place of separateness where everyone outside the group sparks the “we vs them” narrative.
This is one reason I don’t identify as atheist. I think atheists have this “we vs them” mentality too. Its the same thing I see with the LGBT community, they call themselves family, and people like us who don’t have qualms with them are allies, while the homophobic lot are the “vs them” divide.
I identify as a humanist and my belief is the greatest good for all life forms on the planet.
BIL: I understand. I also think you will find your way back to god.
Me: I just realised that talking about god, religion and the many ills in the world is the reason I think change is impossible. I suspect tomorrow (today) will be the last time I give my energy to religion. I’d rather focus on reminding humans of their humanity.
BIL: That’s a good place to be.
Me: I think so too.
P.S: Dear religious people, I am done talking about your religion and beliefs. Feel free to remind me anytime I forget and get pulled into religious talks or arguments.
Sending you Love +
