Reno Omokri has said it’s impossible for a person to be a feminist and a Christian, IgbereTV reports.
Taking to his Twitter handle, he wrote:
“You can be a feminist, or you can be a Christian. But you can’t be a feminist and a Christian. A Christian wife must submit to her husband. A feminist does not submit to a man. Thus, feminism (as is currently defined) cant coexist with Christianity.”
A follower responded:
“Thats your opinion and it’s alright. It been your opinion however doesn’t not make it true for everyone else.
I’m a Christian and a proud feminist!”
And Reno replied via his Instagram handle:
My marriage to my beauty queen wife and my preference for organic food, are my opinions. But the contradiction between feminism and Christianity is not my opinion. Ephesians 5:22 makes it a fact:
“Wives, SUBMIT yourselves to your husbands”
The above verse is a direct contradiction to the definition of feminism according to the Oxford English Dictionary, which defines feminism thus: ‘The belief and aim that women should have the same rights as men’
