July 5, 2014 – Charly Boy: I Was Born Catholic Now A Buddhist,  I Left Christianity Bcos They Pray Too Much In Churches

Area fada turned attention seeker, Charles Oputa aka Charly Boy has revealed his religion and why he left Christianity.

In a recent interview with Vanguard, the Maverick entertainer said he was forced to go to church by his disciplinarian father. Charly Boy said he is now a Buddhist.

In his own words;

“First of all, I am not a church goer. I am a Buddhist, though I was born into the Catholic doctrine. And part of my reason for not going to church is the fact that I have been to a lot of churches. For the first 20 years of my life, I was a mass servant. I was an ‘altar boy’ because my father was a disciplinarian. If you don’t go to morning mass, you are bound to be in trouble. I did all that for 20 years, and that’s the kind of background I was coming from. But things have changed regarding the mode of worship in most churches. They spend more time than necessary. Why should we be praying for two to three hours non-stop? I have other things to do.”

According to Wikipedia, Buddhism is a non-theistic religion that encompasses a variety of traditions, beliefs and practices largely based on teachings attributed to Siddhartha Gautama, who is commonly known as the Buddha, meaning “the awakened one”. According to Buddhist tradition, the Buddha lived and taught in the eastern part of the Indian subcontinent sometime between the 6th and 4th centuries BCE. He is recognized by Buddhists as an awakened or enlightened teacher who shared his insights to help sentient beings end their suffering through the elimination of ignorance and craving by way of understanding and the seeing of dependent origination, with the ultimate goal of attainment of the sublime state of nirvana.

So he left Christianity because Christians pray too much…Hmmmm What an excuse??

    How do you people figured he made an Idol his God?? why don’t you educate yourselves before you started making an ignorant claims? mainly because a person does not share your believe. your silliness sometime saddens me….The continent of Africa especially Nigeria will never progress with this outdated ideas. FYI there are more that a thousand religion in the world…and yours is just one of them.

    Religion they say is the opium of the people, Ola is somewhat correct but not in its totality, in Nigeria and around the world there are countless religions, however, even in all these religion, they do recognize One True God, which is the living God… Islam says There is only one true God, Christianity says the same, and other religion even satanism refers to Jehovah as the creator and the highest being…. having said this however, I think we are all adults here and trying to make a meaningful contribution to issues arising in our country and around the world, we should call a spade a spade in a less derogatory manner…Charlie boy made his decision on religion who are we to judge, but we can however point out the right direction to whoever is reading… therefore Ola, if every religion attest to the fact of a higher God and the christian religion says serving other/lesser gods is tantamount to serving idol what do you make of it?

    @ Denis Ray Ogosi, Its not true that every religions recognize one true God, actually some of them doesn’t recognize any God at all; Buddhism, Taoism, Shintoism and Confucianism. to name a few..
    Now the old higher God and lesser God ideal can be refuted, I’m yet to find a religion that think its own God is less…
    ****************************. Good Luck to everyone.

    I think that people understand nothing in this world.Some went to school but don’t know what main religion. Charly boy is free to choose his religion. is he disturbing you people? Why people want him to be like them or to do what they want. It isn’t possible. In Africa, that is our problem. Always copy others but never improve our own. We know what christianity did in Africa, and still doing(Read white poison, or try to get how they colonize Africa?)We also know what people are doing in name of Islam in Africa. And those who are owning this religion never consider blacks as human beings(arabo). By this moment, in Africa, our problem turns around religion. Why? Because we understood nothing and we don’t know from where we are coming.How we will know where we are going. This man choses his faith way. let him in peace. who curses him curses himself. Amen.

    Charly boy looks better in this suit than that ye-ye traditional chair he was sitting with those ladies. As for his religion, it is his life and at the last day every man including me and you writing this comment will give account of ourselves.

    Charlie is a grown man if you don’t believe in what he believes in that’s fine but for any of you to condemn what he stands for that’s where the problem lies as for like Charlie I churched out or mosqued out about thirty years ago because I was not getting anything out of it is that a crime I don’t think so
