The officiating priest expelled a groomsman from the wedding for wearing earrings.
The earrings, according to the explanation, were against Christianity, thus the pastor refused to let the groomsman wear them.
As a result, the groomsman had to decide whether to remove his earrings and participate in the ceremony or to leave the wedding with his earrings on.
Chief Opeyemi, a Nigerian who finds himself at a wedding in Oslo, Norway, cannot believe he was denied entry because he was wearing earrings. What role did his earrings play in the wedding?
When he posted about his ordeal on social media, he was asked that question. According to him, he was dissatisfied that the presiding pastor’s version of Christianity did not allow for secularism or “normal” things such as a man wearing earrings.
He shared his experience by writing:
At a Baptist church in Isolo, groomsman duties and the reverend just told me I’m not allowed to wear earrings in church. I calmly left the church, guess it’ll be the reception for me. Shout out to Nigerian christianity, and hope they have fine dining restaurants in hell
