Evamarcille’s husband Miketsterling explains to world why he referred to God as “Her” in his wedding vows.


Reposted from @evamarcille – I love my husband💍 #rp

@miketsterling I love my wife and I hand-wrote my vows from a place of intentional love. It appears that some folks have questioned the fact that I referred to God as “her” in my vows and they have offered to pray for my ignorance. I do not speak much about these things, but I will have a few things to say over the next week or so. I am not a theologian, but I referred to God as “her,” because I believe, as many saints do, that God is a mother to the motherless and a father to the fatherless. I believe, as St. Augustine did, that God transcends time, space, existence, and life. I believe that God is God. Thus, if God is a mother to the motherless and a father to the fatherless; I think we err not to see God in each and every one of us. I think we err to limit God. And sometimes I use the pronoun “her” to refer to God because I see God as resembling all of us and as greater than all of us. And I see the divine in my mom and my grandmothers and my sisters. As for my vows, I referred to God as “her” intentionally because I see the God in my wife and God put it on my heart to make sure she heard and felt that. #sterlingsays – #obyorijiblog – #regrann

Why I rejected 2018 Range Rover birthday gift –Alex Unusual


When it was revealed on social media that a former Big Brother Naija contestant, Alexandra Amuche, aka Alex Unusual, rejected a gift of a 2018 Range Rover SUV on her birthday last month, it was hard to believe.

However, in a chat with Sunday Scoop, Alex said it was true she rejected the car gift. She stated, “I rejected the first car I received on my birthday. For me, it was not just about the gift but where it was coming from. The second car given to me was from love. Responsible fans put their money together to get me the car, while the former was from someone who liked me. It is okay to like me but I didn’t feel it was right to collect a car from an admirer. He could decide to collect the car from me anytime he felt like. If I collected the car and I told him I didn’t want a relationship later, what would happen?” For more visit>>> – #obyorijiblog – #regrann

President Muhammadu Buhari said this while condemning Saturday’s attack by gunmen which left at least nine persons dead in Nandu Gbok community in Sanga Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

Climatechange: Leonardo Dicaprio speaks on the destruction caused by plastic waste.


Reposted from @leonardodicaprio – #Regram #RG @everydayclimatechange:
This is Elisabetta Zavoli @elizavola taking over the @everydayclimatechange Instagram account this week and sharing my documentary work of the ‘Landfill midwife’ project. .
Some men, from Cikiwul village, catch up fishes in the highly polluted muddy waters that percolate from Bantar Gebang biggest dump zone. Banter Gebang landfill receives the waste of about 15 millions people living in Jakarta. Trash pickers need the litter to make a living and the Indonesian society needs trash pickers to recycle all possible materials that otherwise would be just discarded. .
Indonesia, is ranked the second largest plastic polluter in the world behind only China with reports showing that the country produces 187.2 million tonnes of plastic waste each year of which more than 1 million tons leaks into the ocean.
Recent studies discovered that as plastics decay, they emit traces of methane and ethylene, two powerful greenhouse gases, and the rate of emission increases with time. The emissions occur when plastic materials are exposed to ambient solar radiation, whether in water or in the air, but in air, emission rates are much higher. Results show that plastics represent a heretofore unrecognized source of climate-relevant trace gases that are expected to increase as more plastic is produced and accumulated in the environment. Polyethylene, used in shopping bags, is the most produced and discarded synthetic polymer globally and was found to be the most prolific emitter of methane and ethylene.
It’s estimated that over 8 billion tons of virgin plastic have been produced since 1950, making plastic one of the largest man-made materials on the planet, behind steel and cement. Of that volume, more than half was produced in the last 16 years, amid a global boom in single-use, disposable plastic. Current annual production levels are expected to double in the next 20 years.

No nation can grow on rigged elections —Peter Obi


The vice presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the February 23, 2019 presidential election, Mr. Peter Obi, has said that no nation can grow on rigged elections.
He said that the process through which people come into office is far more important than what they do thereafter.
The process of election, he said, forms the basis of integrity of every politician.
The former governor of Anambra State said in a statement in Abuja on Sunday that election rigging “is the root of corruption, as it goes to impact negatively on the political and economic growth of the country.”
Obi alleged that “the fraud” that characterised this year’s election has greatly undermined the country’s democracy and its future, saying it has also significantly damaged the ongoing fight against corruption and tainted the integrity of those behind the rigging.
He added that Nigeria cannot quantify the enormity of damage the electoral fraud had done to the psyche of the country. – #obyorijiblog

New Zealand Massacre: Nigerian Imam Who Saved Countless Lives, Speaks


Alabi Lateef, a Nigerian Imam who saved several lives during the New Zealand terror attack, has broken his silence about the massacre.

Lateef was at the Linwood mosque in Christchurch on March 15, when gunman, Brenton Tarrant, opened fire on worshippers killing at least 7 people, after already killing 42 people at the Al Noor mosque.

At the Linwood mosque, worshippers were about to drop to the floor for the second part of the prayer service, when Lateef spotted the gunman.

Hearing gunfire outside, the Imam shouted ‘go down’, warning the worshippers to take cover.

In a chat with The New Zealand Herald, he said: “When I saw those Muslims shot dead, I just told our brothers, ‘Go down! Go down! Somebody has just shot our brothers outside the masjid.

Fo one listened to me until unfortunately he came from behind and he shot one of our brothers in the head through the window. He saw him standing and shot him through the window. .
When glass got broken and the brother fell down, everyone realised to go down.”
The Imam rushed outside with fellow worshipper, Abdul Aziz, who picked up a credit card machine on his way.

Aziz told NZ Herald that he threw the machine at the gunman, who was running back to his car to get another weapon. The terrorist responded by firing at Aziz, who ran through a sea of parked cars to escape the bullets, picking up a discarded gun.
Squeezing the trigger, Aziz realised it was empty, so he hurled it at the gunman’s car.
Jumping into his vehicle, the terrorist made a u-turn and sped away.
Lateef, who had locked the main door of the mosque to keep those inside safe, then called the emergency services, also doing his best to help those wounded. He added he had been prepared to die to save his people:
“I can’t believe… I thought I’d be gone. I was ready to die because I felt for the brothers,” he added. 📷: Stuff, NZ Herald – #obyorijiblog – #regrann

Buhari poorer than in 2015 – Osinbajo .


Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has revealed that President Muhammadu Buhari is “perhaps” poorer now than when he was elected in 2015.

He stated this during a dinner in honour of volunteer supporters of APC for the 2019 general election, held at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Thursday night.

He said: “When I looked at his assets declaration form; I was checking it in 2015, I said to him, ‘Mr President, I am so much richer than you, it is an embarrassment.’

He said, ‘I am only a soldier, you are a big lawyer so you should have more money than me.’ I can tell you that he is perhaps, even poorer than he was in 2015 when I saw his declaration of assets form.” – #obyorijiblog – #regrann
