Reno Omokri has taken to social media to condemn and also compare the actions of Christians in the Pentecostal faith and those in the Catholic faith. According to him, Pentecostals have formed the habit of condemning their pastors whenever they are caught in sin unlike their counterparts in the Catholic faith who see any priest caught in sin as a wounded soldier who needs to be protected.
He ended his submission by saying that this is the reason why the Islamic faith is the fastest-growing religion in the world as that they ”operate a principle of protecting their wounded soldiers.”
”One thing I admire in Catholics is that when a priest is caught in sin, they see him as a wounded soldier who needs rehabilitation and protect him. But Pentecostals will tear down their pastors caught in sin.
A pastor is like a striker. Strikers are marked by the enemy more than other players. The best football clubs have medics on standby to provide help, just in case a striker is injured.
A football club that refuses to tend to a wounded striker, and instead humiliates him before the opposing side, will always be relegated in the league table. And this is one reason why Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world today, bar none. Because they operate on this principle” he wrote
Some Nigerians however disagree with him. While some argued that the Catholic faith’s disposition of ”protecting a wounded soldier” can be interpreted as covering up a criminal, others argued that the reason why Pentecostals tear down their pastors caught in sin is because that is exactly what the pastors would do to their members who are also caught in sin.
