Award-winning writer, Chimamanda Adichie has replied to a Catholic Parish Priest who verbally attacked her over comments on the Catholic church in Nigeria.
Chimamanda had during her mother’s funeral mass in Abba community of Enugu state, revealed that she left the church angrily over the Parish Priest’s verbal attack. She added that she came back to explain what she said during the interview about the Catholic Church in Nigeria because Abba community and the Catholic Church in the community mean a lot to her.
While noting that the Parish priest has had several opportunities to call her privately to explain her stance but never did, Chimamanda added that Priests are meant to guide parishioners and not attack them.
She claimed the priest alleged that she said she doesn’t attend Catholic Church in Nigeria because it is all about money. But she countered it by saying what was said during the interview is there are good things about the Catholic Church but she doesn’t like when people are forced to give money.
