Former Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, and the Church of Satan went on a war of words on Twitter on Monday over a former New York City prosecutor, Linda Fairstein.
Fani-Kayode had lashed out at Fairstein who led the prosecution of the Central Park Five case, wherein five teenagers, four African-American and one Hispanic, were wrongfully convicted for the 1989 rape and assault in Central Park of a white female jogger.
He wrote, “Former NYPD cop, Linda Fairstein, is a racist, witch and a member of the Church of Satan. She should be prosecuted and burnt at the stake with her books. She deserves the death penalty for what she did to those five boys #Central Park 5 #Cancel Linda Farstein.”
However, the Church of Satan swiftly replied that Farstein was not its member.
Responding via its Twitter handle, the church tweeted, “She has nothing to do with us. Please leave us out of it.”
Fani-Kayode responded, “Get thee behind me Satan!,” while the church mocked him that such such threats do not work.
It responded, “That doesn’t actually work. We are right here in front of you telling you that you are making false, unfounded accusations and asking you nicely to please leave us out of it as it has nothing to do with us.”
Fani-Kayode tweeted, “In Jesus name, I bind you and send you to the desert places. The devil is a liar; he was a liar and a murderer from the start and the father of lies. You claim she is not your member and you expect me to believe you. Make your list of members public and prove me wrong. Stop disowning your own.”
