”I fully align with Bishop David Oyedepo’s position that a wife is to be subject to her husband”- Reno Omokri

Reno Omoki says he is totally behind the position of clergyman, Bishop David Oyedepo, who says a wife must be subject to her husband. In his post, Reno stated that feminism cannot coexist with Christ's following. His post reads ''I fully align with Bishop David Oyedepo’s position that a wife is to be subject to her husband. Not in most things, but in ALL things. This may not be popular, but it is Scriptural-Ephesians 5:22. This is also why I have counselled (and been insulted for it) that unless a woman has seen a man when he is angry, she should think twice before marrying him.
