Actress and Big Brother Naija reality show star Josephina Otabor, often known as Phyna, has disclosed that she quit going to church because she disagreed with some of the Pope’s changes.
In the most recent episode of her podcast, Spill With Phyna, the reality star said that, while she was raised as a devout Catholic, she no longer attends church because of the Pope’s changes to some Catholic teachings.
The Pope’s recent blessing for Catholic priests to “bless” same-sex marriages particularly incensed her.
“I no longer attend church.” I grew up in the Catholic Church, so that’s where I started, but things changed. Phyna stated, “The pope has passed some laws that I disagree with, but this most recent one is about a man and a man suited to marry for the Catholic Church, not just any church, I just tell myself there’s no need for it.
