April 17 2018 By dvirtue Nigerian Journalist Tears Welby Apart for his meeting with President Buhari

In a blast at Welby, reminiscent of Archbishop Nicholas Okoh's rip at Dr. Rowan Williams as he left Lambeth Palace eight years ahead of retirement, the journalist took Welby to task saying "There is no question in my mind that Welby is Buhari's new-found bride."

But don't expect God to answer a prayer for which we already know the answer, too. Scripture is abundantly clear that sex is only between a man and woman in marriage. No exceptions.
