I just read a Ghanaweb posting quoting Dr. Mensa Otabil as advocating for the church to allow women to bring mini-skirts to church. I just got so alarmed that I decided immediately that I have no hope of ever going to heaven. That is it. You guys can take the lead.
To be honest with you, I love Dr. Mensa Otabil sincerely. Hey, he is just a Pastor when others with little education and intelligence are Right Reverends, Arch Bishops, Prophets, Redeemers Odifo etc. Secondly, my brother-in-law is in charge of his church at Agona Swedru. Thirdly, he sometimes speak “sense” even if it is tainted with a little political biases toward the NPP as most members of the Christian Council are and he spells his Mensa without an ending “h”.
Don’t blame me. I am in a season of Ghanaian patriotism. My senior brother Kofi Annan just finish his two terms as the Secretary General of the United Nations Organization, a position that qualified him to be called the “President” of the world. Another senior brother Cardinal Turkson just missed being the Pope by a whisker. I mean the Pope. Furthermore, Ghana was declared the most democratic country in the democratic Armageddon called Africa and was rewarded with the first visit of President Obama to Africa, the Black Stars reached the quarter final of the World Cup, an African women joined the world’s parade of billionaires, and NPP lost its flimsy court case against the 2012 general elections, and the Black Stars are better than the Green Eagles of Nigeria and hope it remains so forever.
But my happiness and euphoria has been shattered by the pronouncement that the great Pastor Mensa Otabil has advocated for allowing women to wear “miniskirts” to church because he does not want to be “judgmental” of such women. Wow! This is freedom at its highest apogee. You are confused with apogee? I learnt it from Apam Secondary School and I have always craved for an opportunity to use it. But to be not like Ahoofe, I want to explain that it means the highest level.
“Let them come with their short skirts”, Dry Otabil urged the Church, “and let the Holy Spirit begin to work on them”. Jesus! Pastor Doctor Otabil, do you really mean “mini-skirts” as we the ordinary people know it? What is “mini”? Small, short? And how small can you go? I have travelled around Ghana and the world and mini can be really really mini depending on how the woman understands it. There are a whole lot of mini pants, swim suits and summer dresses for sun bathing. Don’t get me wrong, I love them all and I allow my wife and children to express themselves the way they want, to suit their comfort based on the weather conditions. I am not a fundamentalist Muslim, neither are most Ghanaians to warrant the wearing of burqa and niqab, but the open nakedness called miniskirt are worn for a purpose – being naked. There is a place for it but I don’t think that includes the church.
I do not know about you but I am a sinner and a certified hell goer. My biggest problem is women and all the beautiful ones we have on our streets. I have already gotten two divorces and a number of children from wedlock. I know what you are saying but hold on, I am trying and doing my best to be a good Christian. My biggest problem is the “rod” God put between my legs. So many people tell me it is in my mind. That “a cutlass is harmless and does not on its own harm anybody. It only becomes a murder tool when people use it to harmful purposes. So the problem is in my mind”. I understand that, my only problem is that my dick does not behave like a cutlass. Cutlasses don’t get up and start all kind of trouble when people pass by but my dick always wakes up when it sees beautiful women. Unfortunately, I did not make it that way. It was made for me by the Man upstairs in heaven. I have done my best and everything possible to train it, control it and tame. But I have a confession, I have just failed to succeed in calming it down.
Pastor, I am a scientist and a modestly good one. I published about 5 scientific papers last year alone and even these few months of 2014, I already have one paper published and three more in review. I am good at subjecting a problem to scientific analysis. I have come to realize that my biggest problem with my lack of success with my dick is the creature called women. I have come to the conclusion that the reason why I have not succeeded so far is because the creatures created by God called women are the greatest motivation for my dick. They are solely and singularly responsible for why it behaves the way it does and the cause of all my problems in my miserable life. Anytime I venture out, I see a whole lot of them that encourage it. Pastor, I am serious.
Recently, I came to the conclusion that I am NOT going to be one of the people who are going to inherit the Kingdom of God. I don’t want to embarrass the apostles and angels because I seriously don’t know how my dick will behave in the presence of Mary Magdalene, Esther and particularly Mary the mother of Jesus. I will rather stay here at Teshie.
But despite all my problems, I still prefer to go to church instead of Kwame Nkrumah Circle and Abrantie’s spot. I like my church’s Women Fellowship because of the way the women sing and dress. I like the way my elder preaches about modesty and our cultural way of life. I pay my tithe and collections with the hope that I will convince God not to make my “hell” as bad as my pastor says. The church has become the recluse from my “penisal” misery.
