I have always wondered how this channel on DSTV can hold our kids attention so much. In our days, we grew up with Kunkunu.

Kunkunu  was a puppet tortoise that gave out all sorts of advice and guidance. It was a programme fronted by NTA Jos. From there, we graduated to Tales by Moonlight. In all of these, strong positive messages were sent to our young and gullible minds.

Today, everybody is watching Ben10. Ben 10 changes into so many demons that I have lost count. I have seen kids, hit their parents simply by trying to change channels.  I have once witnessed a child throw his plate at his father, simply because he wanted to watch something else. So you can now begin to imagine the power of Disney in our kids’ lives?

For them to now come and expose our kids to the folly of Homosexuality is one thing I will not stand for.  I heard it somewhere that they now have a lesbian couple in one of the programs.  I almost fainted. My kids live on that channel.  I quickly called my madam and immediately instructed her to ban the watching of that channel in that house forever. I have kids of both sexes and I no fit cry abeg.

To my surprise, when I got home some hours later, my daughter Chantal, who by the way is very delectable and svelte accosted me, arms on her nascent waist, head bobbing like those African American girls, fingers swaying and with a firm although still sweet voice, informed me that she had done her research and found out that it was only one programme that had the offending family and as such I had no right to ban the whole channel. She topped it by saying that its like throwing the baby with the bath water away. Jesus!!!!. Her Ghana trip is on hold. I swear.

Before, I could say anything, her brother Joseph who is usually reticent joined the matter and said it was a lesbian couple and as such, I should not be so worried. I collapsed on the sofa  and began to pray to Holy Michael to give me wisdom.  I was years late. These kids already knew what I was talking about and had even taken their decisions while I was still in the cloud of ignorance.  My 12 year old son already knew what lesbian was and my 10 year old daughter also knew. Kai, I haff died. You see  this DSTV people, God will punish them o.

I used to be liberal minded. At least it was not my backside that would be violated. Anybody can choose what he or she decides to do with his or her body that is their business. My grouse is in trying to force us to accept this abnormality. Exposing young and impressionable minds to it as if it is very normal, thereby trying to recruit them at such tender ages. What can we do, we need divine help. God of Abraham please come down, what is the world turning to.

I got some talking from my liberal friends last night and an outright bashing from another. But the question I asked them is which is a greater evil, Polygamy or homosexuality? In the western world, you can go to jail for having two wives, but you can have same sex relationships and get tax exemptions? These people are crazy o.  They push threesomes, swinging and all sort of depravity but yet criminalize polygamy which was even practised in the Old Testament?

Me, I have decided to fight DSTV. My kids have threatened to lock me out of the house should anything happen to their Disney Channel, so I have to look for other means to fight this crusade. I will go on 100 days fasting, praying that something should happen to their license so that they can close down or better still I will pray that someone in Government whose job it is to regulate these programming would wake up to his responsibility and do something about this.

Let me run home o before they change the locks.

Thank you and God bless.

  1. You need to grow up and stop discriminating against gay couples!!! It is not the devil!!! Gay couples are not evil and have always been there! People now just chose to live outside the little boxes that society and certain religions have trapped them in.. Grow up, get with the times and stop being a hater… People are born gay, not made gay by watching TV..

    And im so glad your kids watch that channel and are exposed to the all types of love and relationships!! At least they will grow up not being so closed minded as most people out there still is!

    If you don’t want it in your house, that’s your opinion, but posting an article like this online is looking for trouble!!!!
    I have lots of gay friends and even a gay family member, and you know what, they don’t judge people the way some judge them.. And Tosin!!! If you see love as being the devil, I wonder wear the real devil lies?? God is love!!! Get out of your box!!!!

  2. jhb gal I don’t know ur religion n ur believes but if ur r a Christian read ur bible. I don’t hate d person I hate d sin.

    1. Shadow, if you are Christian, you not supposed to hate anyone.. You are supposed to accept people the way they are.. And you are not supposed to judge… You don’t need a bible to know that, its common sense..
