Nigerian Catholic Priest Supports Polygamy, Says It Is Better To Have Many Wives At Home Than Have Many Girlfriends Outside

  • Rev. Father Gabriel Ngbe of Akwangwa Catholic Church, in Nasarawa State, on Sunday canvassed the need for the Catholic Church to incorporate polygamy and some good aspects of African culture in its doctrine.

  • The Catholic Priest made this known while celebrating Acculturation Mass at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church Akwanga.

  • Ngbe insisted that the Catholic doctrine must be amended, especially in the African Catholic churches in order to accommodate every member of the Church.

“The Whiteman that brought Christianity to us mixed the religion with his culture and Africans just accepted it like that at the expense of our culture.

“If we did not incorporate parts of our culture into the way we worship God, our culture would in no distant time go into extinction,” he said.

Ngbe explained that local foods should henceforth be used for communion in the Catholic Church instead of using products imported from Europe.

The priest also said meaningful local names should be given to people during Baptism and Confirmation in Catholic Churches as against using “English names.”

Ngbe urged members to imbibe the habit of wearing local dresses during weddings as well as using local languages for Mass.

He said that anybody who practiced polygamy before accepting Christ should be given equal treatment in the Church with those that have only one wife.

“It is better to have many wives at home than to have only one and yet have many girl friends and lovers outside,” the priest said.

Ngbe therefore commended the Yoruba people for incorporating their culture in the way they practiced both Christianity and Islam and urged others to emulate them.

  1. IF THE BIBLE MAINTAINS that “common” deacons should be men of one wife, how much more are pastors and reverends expected to have one wife? Oga reverend father, your argument doesn’t follow. A man who cheats on his one wife would still cheat on his ten wives, since what causes the man to cheat is his untamed desire to taste new things. As a pastor or reverend, you are the shephered of God’s sheep, and you should know what you feed the flock entrusted to you.

  3. First, second and third commentators, cant you read and understand the priest, The priest is not encouraging Polygamy, He said anyone that have practice Polygamy before accepting Christ should be treated equally in the church with those who have one wife, that is better than to have many wives than having secret girl or woman friend, AS FOR ME I AM TOTALLY AGREED WITH THE PRIEST,there are so many Hypocrisy in the church today. I also saw the priest as a man that Value and respect his Culture so we should imbibe the words of the priest and don’t castigate him for his humble advice

    • Many priest in the modern era do not understand why they are ordained and there is this blanket of confusion due to the overbearing influence of materialism in their lifestyles. God have mercy

  4. I‘ve never for once consider Catholic as a Church let alone taking any advice emanating from there.

    I‘m not trying to castigate here but a so called Church that will abandon the Creator and gives Worship and reverence to the creature (Mary), has little or nothing to tell me about how to run my Christian race.

    I take a stroll…

    • Mr D Hunter, how I wish you ********** Jesus was only a creature like his mum Mary. Any Protestants churches who claims to worship God was untrue. All Christians worships Jesus as their God like Catholics who chooses Jesus mother. So you all are birds of a feather flocking together.

  5. There is no difference between Chatolic and muslims. The slight difference I can say is that muslims are terrorists while catholics are idol worshippers.

    I take a stroll…

  6. Funny Africans! I don’t even know what to call it without abusing anyone, but many are already accepting equal rights of gays in the church, yet the right of an African who is already married with many wives are unacceptable.
    Sad!
    Is there anything the priest said that is wrong? Yet we see it as end of time.
    Open your eyes: “You hypocrites” – Jesus Christ

  7. @talker are you sure you carefully read the priest’s words that was directly quoted from him?

    The priest disqualified those men who have one wife and at the same time having multiple girlfriends out there. And for that reason,he endorsed and support a man having more than one wife rather than having girlfriends outside in addition to his wife. So be very clear of that.

    He also mentioned the equal treatment between those that married one wife and anyone who practised polygamy before accepting christ. So the two are deferent message entirely. Now the question is,as a priest why should he promote or prefer the marrying of many wives rather than one man one wife that even jesus christ reaffirmed in the new testament? Where does the bible say instead of having many girlfriends outside of marriage,a man should rather marry many wives?

    So this so called priests and church leaders should stop influencing people negatively and teach exactly the truth found in God’s word the bible.

  8. CATHOLIC CHURCH ARE NOT CHRISTIAN, KING HENRY THE VIII , LEFT CATHOLIC CHURCH TO FORM CHURCH OF ENGLAND WHICH IS THE ANGLICAN CHURCH , HE NAME ANGLICAN CHURCH AFTER HIS MOTHERS VILLAGE WHICH IS EAST ANGLIA.

    THEN , CATHOLIC WAGE WAR AGAINST THE CHRISTIANS FOR MORE THAN TWO HUNDRED YEARS IN WHICH THEY KILLED OVER ONE FIFTY MILLION CHRISTIAN .

    THE JESUIT ORDER WAS AN AGREEMENT BETWEEN THEM, PEOPLE WOULD NOTICE THAT CATHOLIC CHURCH DO NOT REFER TO JESUS, THEY PREFER CALLING ON HOLY MARY, INSTEAD OF CALLING JESUS.

    THIS JANUARY 2016 , POPE FRANCIS APOLOGISE TO CHRISTIANS FOR HOW THEY HAVE KILLED OVER FIFTY MILLION CHRISTIANS.

    I WOULD LIKE TO SAY, THAT THE PRIEST WAS WELL SPOKEN ABOUT HAVING TWO WIVE AT HOME INSTEAD OF HAVING OVER TWENTY BASTARD CHILDREN OUTSIDE OUR MARRIAGE

    HE WAS ALSO RIGHT ABOUT CHANGING OUR NAMES AS SOON AS WE BECOME CHRISTIAN, IT IS NOT RIGHT AT ALL.

    BECAUSE IT HAS GOT NOTHING TO DO WITH GOD OR WITH YOUR PRAYER, OR WITH HOW YOU WANT TO TALK TO GOD.

    GOD DID NOT ASK YOU TO IGNORE YOUR MOTHERS FOOD OR ABANDON YOUR CULTURE OR THROWING OUR IMAGE AWAY

    WE ABANDON EVERYTHING THAT ATTACHED TO US AND FOLLOWED FAKE PASTORS HERE AND THERE. ALL IN THE NAME OF RELIGION.

    I THINK IS TIME TO GO BACK TO BASIS AND BEAR OUR FATHERS NAME AND EAT OUR MOTHERS FOOD. CHIRIOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  9. The truth about one man, one wife

    To validate your arguments, please show in the bible where it says, “One man, one wife.”, otherwise you may be teaching for doctrine the commandments of men (Matt 15:9, Mark 7:7). Polygamy seems the norm hence St. Paul recommended that bishops only, should have one wife. Remember, he only advised but did not command that (1Tim 3:2).

    Marriage is honorable, and sex between husbands and wives blesses, and does not defile the marriage bed. However, that is different from non-marriage sexual activities and the attendant hopping from bed–to-bed because God will judge whoremongers (prostitutes) and adulterers! (Hebrews 13:4). Yet, our Jesus Christ NEVER taught, “One man, one wife! Except for St. Paul, no other apostle talked about, “One man, one wife”. Instead, through the lives of our Apostles, St. Paul revealed, ”Have we not power to lead about a sister, a wife, as well as other apostles, and as the brethren of the Lord, and Cephas? (KJV, 1Cor. 9: 3-5). Cephas is St. Peter. Apparently, a “sister” in this case is not a wife but female companions of the types that we may not like to admit!

    The truth seems that adultery is a female issue, not a male one. King David committed adultery and murder but God’s anger against him was the murder of Uriah, the husband of Bathsheba. Eventually, King David married Bathsheba (2Sam 11:26), and King David and Bathsheba gave birth to King Solomon, the wisest man that ever lived (1Kings 2:13)!

    King Solomon, as we know, had many, many, wives and concubines. Painfully, in his old age, he started following the false gods of some his wives and God was angry with him (1Kings 11: 3). Just remember however, that one woman is more than enough to cause the same problem! Turning to false gods and religions was the problem, not his multiple marriages and sexual deviances!

    When a woman caught in adultery (John 8: 3-4), nobody mentioned the men! Even though that sounds sexist in modern times, the implication is that when the woman consents to sexual acts that the men involved have little or no blame! On the other hand, it is RAPE if she does not consent, and that carries heavy penalties! (Deut. 22: 28-29). Often, when we talk about holy women, virginity—sexual purity—is an all-important factor. Our Blessed mother, Mary, the mother of our Lord Jesus Christ is a perfect example. To the disappointment of those who insult Mary, however, her biblical title, along with her Son Jesus, is “Blessed” (Luke 1:42).

    Heaven is the prize! Apparently, marrying one wife will never guarantee heaven to any man! Contrarily, neither God the Father, Jesus Christ, nor ANY of the Apostles has ever condemned any man for marrying more than one wife! Thou shall not steal”, is biblical (Exodus 20:15). Thou shalt not commit adultery is biblical (Deut. 22:22). However, neither of those means ‘one man one wife” rather, God’s word is fair in that a man should not be soiling the marriage environment after he has picked his own wives! Painfully, the “one man, one wife doctrine” forces husbands into divorces whereby they end up not enjoying the wife of their youth (Malachi 2:14, Proverbs 5:18).

    In fact, “one man, one wife” doctrine only seems to promote prostitution. All the external pretenses notwithstanding, marriage is one all-important point that validates most women. Consequently, that could be one reason we see seven women taking a stand in the bible, “We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel: only let us be called by thy name (marriage), to take away our reproach (of singleness). “ (Isiah. 4:1).

    Jacob had many wives (Gen. 32: 22-23) yet, he saw God after which his name became Israel (Genesis 32:28). Many, many holy men of the bible had multiple wives as well! One would be deceiving oneself to think that most the pastors on TV have only one woman in their lives. That is particularly true in African countries where there are no checks and balances. In fact, some inner-circle members have suggested that most of the small girls in those organizations lose their virginity to their televangelist pastors! Of course, the TV preachers have powerful links that suppress such truths promptly.

    Thanks,
    The Truth that sets you free indeed!

  10. The Catholic Priest is right. The comments of Dad Mae is very correct. I have research the Holy Bible. I see more support and express command from God for polygamy. Not even one verse against polygamy in the Holy Bible. Monogamy is only the tradition of men accepted by many churches against expressed commandments of God. Please read Exodus 21:10, and the laws of the God in the old testament. I salute the courage of the Catholic Priest and others. I wish more clergies can come out in support of the truth of the Holy Bible. We should rather obey God than men. I know there are conspiracies against this truth. But at last we will come to know that both monogamy and polygamy are approved of God and a man has freedom to choose any type of marriage depending on his ability and natural endowments.
