Pastor E.A Adeboye, General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God has received heavy backlash after revealing how he counseled his married son to sack the secretary he was beginning to admire.
“One of my sons told me he was always excited to resume in the office every Monday because he would get to see his secretary again. I told him to fire her immediately. Nothing and no one is worth your marriage”. – Pastor Adeboye wrote in the ministry’s daily devotional
However, internet users have slammed the cleric saying he made a woman lose her job over his son’s inability to control his boy crush. They described his action as insensitive and totally uncalled for.
Read some reactions culled from Twitter;
Pastor Adeboye asked his son to fire his secretary because he couldn’t control the ecstasy of working around her. An innocent woman lost her job for nothing and people are replying, “More grace to Daddy.” I don’t understand, grace to fire more innocent people??
I just read Pastor Adeboye thread and I am not satisfied with the man sacking the woman coz he couldn’t control himself, instead he could have helped her secure a job in another place or change her dept and as for the other tweets below, it’s facts but that first tweet…..Nahhh!
If we start to fire everybody based on crush…..most pretty women and good looking men will be jobless. Pastor Adeboye yarned trash right there….so lets move on.
Ethically I dont think it’s right for Daddy GO Pastor Adebayo & son to fire the secretary on the basis that he gets excited seeing her. I mean there are labour laws ffs. He should have reprimanded & admonished his son. The lady didnt deserve to lose her source of income.
Pastor Adeboye demonised and essentially slut-shamed a woman merely because his son had feelings for her. That’s it. That’s all it took. The bar is that low. I hate misogynists.
Pastor Adeboye, an innocent woman (who might have people depending on her) lost her job, at your command, because your son couldn’t control himself & you are proud to tell us? Why?Shouldn’t you have fired your son for spiritual misconduct?
