A Nigerian missionary priest serving in Gambia, Rev Fr Kelvin Ugwu has claimed that the devil would only need to destroy the Catholic church in order to wipe Christianity off the earth.

The Catholic priest stated this in a post on his verified Facebook page while reacting to the controversial document endorsed by Pope Francis regarding same-sex marriage.

Report had emerged earlier in the week, indicating that the Vatican approved blessings for same-sex couples.

This development has stirred controversies across the world, as many Christians, including some Catholic bishops distanced themselves from the document.

Some unbelievers have also taken to social media to ridicule Christians over the development.

But Fr Kelvin in his reaction, urged his followers to steer clear of posts and discussions mocking the Christian faith.

He said, “This is not the time for mockery. Don’t join those who have been looking for this opportunity to ridicule our faith in Christ.

“For Christians all over the world, I say this, if the devil wants to scatter this Christian faith kpatakpata, all he needs to do is to destroy the Catholic church. You may not see it, but I don’t pray you see it ever.”

The priest lamented the ambiguity in the document issued by the Vatican, stressing that the undetailed content birthed the controversies.

“A document that almost every Bishop had to explain and clarify to their diocesan people, the Catholic Bishops conferences had to explain, and priests had to explain to their parishioners both online and offline, is not a good document.

“Yes, the document did not say much or make any clear stipulations, and that is basically the problem with the document. What it did not say is more devastating than what it was trying to say”, he added.
