Over in the African country of Nigeria LGBTI citizens are living in fear again after the the Primate of the Anglican Church of Nigeria, Nicholas Okoh, launched yet another scathing attack on homosexuality and gay marriage.
Primate Okoh said homosexuality and gay marriage are evil and works of the devil that must not be allowed to exist in Nigerian society.
Primate Okoh launched his gay hate attack this week during the ordination of three Anglican Bishops. We quote from his speech:
"You are already aware of the evil wind blowing across the Western world, by way of the homosexual agenda. They want to push it down everybody’s throat. And as far as they are concerned, it is a matter of human right. But God’s right is not discussed. I want to say that you have a responsibility to this church, not to allow any influence from any quarters to corrupt our church. The Biblical understanding of marriage will continue to be the basis of our teaching; we will not change that position. So... please, resist the Devil and all his works, and he will flee from you. I want to encourage our clergy, particularly those of you who have attachment with the United Kingdom and other parts of Europe and America, don’t bring that influence in here."
Homosexuality is already illegal in Nigeria and is punished punished by the country's different states with varying degrees of severity with up to 14 years of imprisonment in most states, while in northern states punishments include flogging and death by stoning.
