Some concerned students of St. Monica’s College of Education in the Ashanti region have thrown their unflinching support to Reverend Father Larbi, the college chaplain, over his viral video on social media.
The Anglican Priest has come under attack by social media users for kissing three female students one after the other on the pulpit during a church service gathering. Narrating the incident which necessitated the kiss, the concerned students think that the video has been misconstrued to tarnish the image of the honorable man of God and the school at large.
In a circular released by the students and directed to blogger, it explained that Father Larbi honoured deserving students with certificates, sums of money and a kiss as well during a church service on August 15,202. Sadly, some students took videos of the incident and shared them on social media with funny captions. Unfortunately, some bloggers circulated the video with fallacious headlines to deceive the public without cross-checking the truth of the matter.
The students are therefore calling on bloggers to keep silent about the matter or better make proper inquiries being publishing it on their blog. Meanwhile the Anglican Church has initiated investigation into the matter.
Social media reaction of the video
Reverend Father is currently trending on social media especially on Twitter. Most netizens have expressed shock and dislike over the act exhibited by the Anglican Priest, describing it as wrongful.
Conversely, others think the Father was only offering a holy kiss as prescribed in Romans 16:16 which reads, “Greet one another with a holy kiss. The churches of Christ greet you.” What do you also think?
