God delusion?

Nigerian manager uses God and stuff to rid her team of Lesbians

No Lesbians here…

The Women’s World Cup has kicked off and loads has happened – England drew their opening game thanks to a 35-yard shot from Mexico and a bit of average goalkeeping from England, while Japan won their game against New Zealand putting them top of England’s group.

Unfortunately, it’s not all beautiful football and beautiful women, the ugly face of God has gone and popped up thanks to the manager of the Nigeria team.

Eucharia Uche has apparently been praying to the almighty in an attempt to make her team Lesbianless and, according to the mad bint, it seems to be working…

Speaking to the New York Times, Uche cackled:

“The issue of lesbianism is common. I came to realise it is not a physical battle; we need divine intervention in order to control and curb it. I tell you it worked for us. This is a thing of the past. It is never mentioned.”

She also said that homosexuality was a “dirty issue” and “spiritually, morally very wrong.

This comes on the back of former technical assistant for the Nigerian football federation, James Peters, admitting last year that certain players were dropped “not because they were not good players, but because they were lesbians.”

FIFA have done the sum total of eff all to address the issue which has lead The Justin Campaign – a group founded in memory of Justin Fashanu with the aim to rid football of homophobia – to say:

“FIFA’s response has been extremely tepid, with a promise to “talk to her (Uche)” the sum total of their actions.

“This appallingly poor response from the football world’s governing body highlights how far down on their list of priorities homophobia seems to be.

“If the manager of a team competing in the 2011 Finals had spoken of the problem of black players in their team, FIFA would no doubt (and obviously rightly so) have acted with the kind of authority and decisiveness necessary. However, the rights of the LGBT community continue to be viewed as less important.

“Until the likes of FIFA finally start to deal with the issue of homophobia within the game (and arguably within its own corridors of power), football will continue to be riddled with this vile and needless bigotry.”

C’mon Nigeria and FIFA – sort yourselves out. Bloody stupid, innit?

    Well I’m not sure what FIFA can actually do about it, can they interfere and make Nigeria fire her? Just talking to her isn’t going to change her ridiculous beliefs, nor is denouncing her publicly, nor is anything at all likely to change her opinion bar an edit of the bible. Religion once again skewing peoples morals.

    That coach needs a vacation:

    There is nothing wrong with view lesbianism as wrong. But being prejudiced towards a player because she is lesbian is ridiculous. I can think hunting is wrong morally, but firing an employee because he hunts is a completely different story.

    Africans , especially Nigerians, have their culture and tradition which makes them unique. They are Homophobic. It is not about pleasing the rest of the world…they simply see it as taboo regardless of what the whole world thinks, it is a fad that may never ever be allowed to thrive in Nigeria.

  • nick // June 28, 2011 at 8:09 pm

    People need to stop being so fucking ignorant and understand that people should not be victimized/segregated/normalized because of things like sexual preference.

    tonyspeed you are wrong. Would you say there is nothing wrong with viewing being black is wrong? Everyone is a human being. Your race/gender/sexual preference/ethnicity/etc. should never make you a lesser human.

    People are still in the fucking dark ages.

  • maurizio // June 28, 2011 at 10:39 pm

    ok, all you shitheads who think that all africans are primitives, go to your local mosque in London and ask there if anyone thinks that buttfucking another guy is kosher (!).

    C’mon… these are your english neighbours and countrymen after all, find out what they think about this.

    You KNOW the answer just like everyone else does but were gonna make believe that people who still believe in mythic stories and legends (yes, Momo the child molester included) are somehow also all gay positive because they live in England.

    But those people arent living in the dark ages and those in africa are? BS.

    Youre so full of the pro-gay propaganda that you think that everyone feels the same when it reality they dont.

    Go into ethnic communities and its so one sided that even the biggest hypocrite couldnt argue how people really think about this..

    Let us know how your visit of pro-gay mosques in England is going.

  • @ry // June 29, 2011 at 12:52 am

    Whatever you all may think or feel about the coach’s action is a reflection of your belief, philosophy and view about life and you honestly have no right, justified or not, to impose it on any other. obviously, everyone that opposed her action ain’t religious…In Nigeria we will not allow moral decadence and degradation just as you have promoted and celebrated in your pervert world. C’mon mind your business and let Nigerians mind theirs..FIFA is reasonable they ain’t dumb or foolish.

  • Coolface // June 29, 2011 at 4:55 am

    At least they’ll be OK visiting Qatar in 2022.

  • Teeseed // June 29, 2011 at 10:06 am

    I think the writer is not very intelligent. We must learn to allow people uphold their tradition and culture. Homosexuality is not accepted in Nigeria and FIFA has no business with that.
    You can run your big mouth and cast aspertion on God. I only wish you”ll be bold enough to talk like this to Arabs knowing that they have the same bias.
    If you feel that the rights of Lesbians should be respected, then you should be sane enough not to attempt to rubbish the God that billions believe in.
    I feel for you.

  • Lummy // June 29, 2011 at 11:11 am

    we in this part of the world are sometimes taken aback by the actions of some people in the “civilized” world. The other day people in New York were seen celebrating legalizing gay marriages while the same city arrested the head of IMF for trying to have a straight FUCK. same people destroyed Tiger Woods for having beautiful girlfriends instead of fucking some Asses like Elton John who is seen as a saint. I can go on but pls tell the writer to leave us alone and let people follow what God created..an OPPOSITE SEX

  • gboye // June 29, 2011 at 1:05 pm

    I support the Nigerian coach 100%, it is wrong, and its the Europeans and the Americans that brought all this sinful behaviors, i am not condemning them but they are all candidate of hell. Go and read Romans 1: 26-29. You better repent before it is too late. Heaven is REAL and HELL is real.

  • blah // June 29, 2011 at 3:01 pm

    religion is such bullshit. it is wrong.
    you are wrong if you believe in an imaginary man whom you have never talked to. if you say you have you are lying. god can eat shit because he is a fairy tale.
    It’s not only Nigeria in the dark ages. It is anyone who can’t understand that people on earth have a choice with what they want to do. Sexuality is a CHOICE. No one should be judged on their choices. Mind your own business. Once people stop labeling each other there will be no oppression.

    Nations such as Nigeria who oppress their people through religion should be prosecuted and stripped of ANY power.

    The delusion of God is the root of most problems in the world today.

  • NH // June 29, 2011 at 4:00 pm

    Ah, you can always rely on an article like this to bring all the nutty god botherers out of the woodwork. LOL also @ Lummy for ignoring the fact that the head of the IMF was arrested for trying to rape a hotel maid. I wouldn’t mind religion so much if followers didn’t spend so much time trying to impart their beliefs on others. Religion is personal, keep it that way.

  • Lammy // June 29, 2011 at 4:53 pm

    The English claim they are the defender of the faith and the Americans say in GOD WE TRUST and this same God is clearly against homosexuality (Romans 1:26-32). Homosexuality is not celebrated in Nigeria. You may say we are backward, thank you, if loving homosexuality is what being civilized means, we don’t want to be. So shut up and mind you business. Go on coach!

  • Lammy // June 29, 2011 at 5:25 pm

    RICHARD ANDERSON, a fool says in his heart there is no God. How intelligent are you if you don’t believe in a supreme being, the creator of all things. ask doctors and they will tell you how complex the human systems are. it could ONLY have been formed by a supreme being -GOD. Only fools will believe in the big band theory or evolution- those theories are stupid. why have we not evolve to something else all these years? it is so thoughtless of you to be so blasphemous of GOD. you should have shown more discretion about a topic as sensitive as GOD. My conclusion is this- GOD IS REAL YOU ARE JUST TOO BLIND TO SEE

  • blah // June 29, 2011 at 5:31 pm

    God is gay

  • R2Dad // June 29, 2011 at 5:49 pm

    God is a big gay black woman and she is gettin’ ready to open up a can of whup ass…

  • blah // June 29, 2011 at 6:11 pm

    Hey Lammy,

    this is perfect for you:

  • TO // June 29, 2011 at 11:04 pm

    It is not possible to reason with religious nuts. Simply not possible. When adults like this coach believe something is wrong based on something written in a book about some imaginary invisible super powerful guy that she has never seen, heard from or even been shown one iota of evidence that he exists, scientific thinking goes out the window. This is a case of trying to use logic to convince someone who’s been brainwashed with religious nonsense from the day they were born

  • Lummy // June 30, 2011 at 11:17 am

    What this article is all about from the traditional African perspective, is that homosexuality is bad and not natural. I have seen animals banging same sex. they even fight or kill for over a juicy Pussy. So i wonder what Man is turning into…worse than an animal? We all pray when we ask for something. The Coach wants her team to do well without unnecessary distractions hence her prayers and it is being turned around by bigots like you “cos it bothers on homosexuality. All Gays need to visit the shrink or kept in Mental homes away from our children and the society

  • yeag // June 30, 2011 at 2:00 pm

    LOL.
    Lummy, what is God backwards?

    I hope God fucks you in the ass if you ever see him.
    I wiped my ass the other day and the shit looked like the virgin mary. Because she looked a virgin i fucked the shit. I bet thats what god did because he is a fudge packer.

  • Phil // June 30, 2011 at 3:10 pm

    Lummy says: “All Gays need to visit the shrink or kept in Mental homes away from our children and the society”… Wow, that’s one helluva a viewpoint, and clearly not akin to religious acceptance/forgiveness or otherwise….Lummy, you need to calm down!!

    Tell you what, Mr Anderson, you opened a right old can of worms here eh mate!!!!!

  • John // June 30, 2011 at 7:53 pm

    Personally I dont care what you believe as long as you dont push your beliefs on me. I have my opinions but I dont feel the need to yell them at the top of my lungs. These are all your personal opinions keep them that way…personal.

  • Pearson // July 1, 2011 at 8:17 am

    And Nigeria lost their first game, homos or not

  • Lammy // July 1, 2011 at 7:11 pm

    YES! Nigeria lost both her matches and proudly at that, with our customs and believes intact- not polluted by you perverts. THE CONCLUSION IS THIS YOU ARE FREE TO BELIEVE WHAT YOU BELIEVE AND I AM FREE TO BELIEVE WHAT I BELIEVE- ITS A FREE WORLD. LEAVE NIGERIANS WITH THEIR CUSTOMS AND TRADITIONS, WE THE RIGHT TO OUR WAYS AS A PEOPLE. Try promoting homosexuality in the middle east. Let me in form you the penalty is death by stoning. you think Nigerians are primitive try middle east

  • Lammy // July 1, 2011 at 7:31 pm

    Blah, I hope you know many of the renowned physicists were Christians in their life-time e.g Isaac Newton. being intelligent is not synonymous with being an atheist. pls check this up- List of christain thinkers in science

  • R2Dad // July 1, 2011 at 9:23 pm

    Lammy, to see the error in your argument, replace homophobic beliefs with racist beliefs and see how that reads. Imagine if the racists in Russia, Spain, USA, Italy et al said:
    THE CONCLUSION IS THIS YOU ARE FREE TO BELIEVE WHAT YOU BELIEVE AND I AM FREE TO BELIEVE WHAT I BELIEVE- ITS A FREE WORLD. LEAVE OUR COUNTRY WITH THEIR RACIST CUSTOMS AND TRADITIONS, WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO OUR WAYS AS A PEOPLE.
    This is actually quite ironic, since UEFA and FIFA have ongoing campaigns against racial discrimination in football, primarily against Africans in Europe.
    So no, you’re incorrect. Even if you are isolated from the rest of the world (e.g. South Africa 25 years ago), you should respect the rights of individuals even if their behaviors and habits differ from your own. Politically, China seems to be the exception but I saw lesbians walking hand in hand, unmolested, in Hong Kong so let’s call China a work in progress. The fact that homosexuality is also persecuted in the middle east does not make it right, just more common-place. You are entitled to your opinions, but readers on this site are also entitled to tell you how wrong you are.

  • Sonlove // July 4, 2011 at 3:11 pm

    There are many fish heads in this site, how can idiots like Bla and other fucking nutjobs diss God? if you dont believe in God fine thats for you pls dont bring yourself out of here…

  • Blah // July 4, 2011 at 7:41 pm

    We dis God because God doesn’t exist.

    I have a problem with people using their influence to uphold dispersed power that doesn’t fit the bill of what God says is right. God is a fucking asshole if he exists. But he doesn’t and it is mind boggling that so many people believe in someone they can’t see. It is terrifying to think that millions of people devote their lives to a fairy tale and an imaginary person. It is frightening to know that these nutjobs are able to have so much influence in the world and cause so much death, rape, oppression, hate, fear, and anxiety.
    Religion constitutes unfair “norms” and is a major problem in the world.
    So much hypocrisy exists within religions too.
    Popes that rape children., et al.

    Fuck God and fuck anyone who subscribes to any religion. Your faith to bullshit is ruining humanity.

  • Berbatov seeeeeeee // July 5, 2011 at 1:27 am

    God was invented by a bunch of unemployed writers on opiates.

  • LR // November 1, 2011 at 1:09 am

    Apparently, those Nigerian female footballers are very beautiful on-and-off the field. None of them even look masculine a slight bit and they would make great male footballer WAGs like any female athlete, team owner, or coach.
