Video: Mohale is a girlfriend of Somizi as she advocates for gays
Mohale has weighed in on the talk around homos.e.xuality and Christianity, slamming hypocrisy and calling for serious conversations on the subject to be had within the church.
The star recently chatted with gospel star NJ Kunene about s.e.xuality and faith on his Instagram Live series Let’s Talk with Mohale.
NJ said he didn’t want to cover his s.e.xuality as a church leader because he believed it might affect his faith.
“You are often gay and Christian,” he said.
Mohale said he visited a Christian school and was a church leader, but initially, found it “very difficult” to return to terms together with his s.e.xuality.
“We were being told, not by God or the Bible, but by people that we’re teaching, that being gay isn’t acceptable and wrong. I started accepting all those words and living them in my life, saying I can’t be gay, being gay may be a sin. Until I realized these people are taking what the Bible is saying out of context,” he said.
He said realizing people had used the Bible “out of context” allowed him to urge obviate the emotions that he was unclean or unworthy to travel to church.
“For me, God teaches us to like. God teaches us to not judge people. Their interpretation of what is said within the Bible, they need to take it upon themselves to make a decision God hates people that are homosexuals.
“There is nowhere God says that within the Bible. due to what they need read within the Bible, they need to take it out of context to mention they’re not getting to associate themselves with someone who is gay, and you that can’t be gay and Christian.”
Mohale called out those that used scripture to say homos.e.xuality may be a sin, saying they needed to use equivalent energy speaking about other “sins” within the Bible.
“If we are getting to be vocal and mention homosexuality being a sin, then we must be vocal about everything else considered a sin”.
He said attraction to an equivalent gender needed to be normalized and recounted his own experience beginning to his parents.
“My dad was the welcoming one, the one who said it had been OK. My mom had a couple of challenges accepting (it). I gave her time to actually come to terms (with it). I had tons of conversations together with her. I made her understand who I’m and zip has changed about me. I’m still her son. I’m still the exact same person she knows, it’s just that I had differences,” he explained, adding that she now accepted his sexual orientation.
