The Church of Satan has reacted to a statement made by Nigerian OAP Daddy Freeze, where he stated that marriage vows are satanic.
Daddy Freeze on Wednesday took to his Instagram handle to state that all vows are satanic, including the ones made on wedding day; adding that Christ said so himself.
He wrote: “For Christians, the scriptures say two became one. How can you become one with someone who can’t access your phone, email or bank details? HOW?
“Those pulpit gaslights have lied to you all your life, a great pity it is that you are living a lie and the consequence is your expulsion from God’s city read Rev22:15.
“Many of you are living separate lives while carrying a legal document to pronounce you a couple. That’s a huge joke on no one else but you.
“The fact that you got married in a religious shrine in front of a priest does not make you a married couple, as a matter of fact, you don’t need a priest or a church to get married.
“1 Peter2:5 says we are all priests, stop outsourcing your priestly role to a yahoo boy by hiring someone else to do your job, pronounce YOURSELF married, IT’S YOUR GOD GIVEN DUTY and it has NOTHING to do with the church.
“All vows are satanic, including marriage vows, Christ said so himself, when you see him, argue with him.
“Become one with your spouse today, or get a divorce, it’s as simple as that, stop leading another person into lust because of Godless religious traditions. ~FRZ”
But in a swift reaction, the Church of Satan took the to its verified Twitter handle to express disagreement with Daddy Freeze, saying they find his views contrary to their belief in Satan,
The church wrote: “Marriage is not for everyone, but Satanists can admit and take responsibility for their own positions.
“Sounds like Daddy Freeze is just trying to make excuses to get out of it (making marriage vows).”
