The Anti Gay Law and Nigerians.

The concept of Homosexuality is an abomination according to the Holy Books, a taboo in African tradition and also to every extent it is morally wrong but that is not enough reason to hate or condemn anyone for being homosexual. Religiously and morally it is wrong to hate anyone for their choice or opinion in life but with the hate and condemnation homosexuals receive from everywhere especially from Nigerians one would think homosexuality is the only abomination in the eye of God which is not true.

Many of the things we do and see as normal are abomination in the sight of God but the society makes it seem like homosexuals are the greatest sinners in the sight of God, according to Ezekiel 18 v 10 – 13, homosexuals aren’t the only ones committing abominable offences even bankers and almost everyone involved in politics commit abomination but the society sees it as normal.

Instituting laws and tagging them like criminals shouldn’t be a state issue,, what two consenting adults do in private shouldn’t be a problem to the society and shouldn’t be an issue to be discussed in the parliament. Hating and condemning them won’t solve the problem of homosexuality, how do you convince those you’ve shown hatred to repent from their wrongdoings? Besides, making it illegal doesn’t make it go away.

The anti gay law cheapened our democracy and will probably pose more danger to the freedom of Nigerians than any other law in our history because there’s no way to prove anyone is gay and with the law enforcement agencies we have in this country more innocent people will be arrested, black mailed and tortured as gays and soon the law will be used as a weapon to settle personal and political scores.

More ground studies should have been done to itemize other options before laws are passed, that is why in America, not all states have legalised this act. The Okada ban law in Lagos is a clear example that in Nigeria the law enforcers don’t really understand the laws they’re enforcing neither do they know how to interpret laws, A law like this will give rise to many wrongful convictions and vile mob actions.

Homosexuals are our brothers and sisters and should be shown love, if we all claim to love God how come we hate our brothers for their choice in life? 1 John 4: 20 “Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen”

Religiously, Homosexuals are like lost souls, they’re in sin but don’t know, to make them realise their mistakes they must be shown love and respect, prayed for and taught to be true to the order of nature,, by doing this we can convince them to forsake their wrong choice and change for good.

  1. Lev. 18:22, “You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination.”1
    Lev. 20:13, “If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their bloodguiltness is upon them”
    1 Cor. 6:9-10, “Or do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, 10nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God.”
    Rom. 1:26-28, “For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, 27 and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error. 28 And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper.”

    • This is true my brother my point is that condemning them should not be the solution, yes they’ve committed a big offence but remember the Bible said “There’s joy in heaven for every sinner that forsake his or her sin and turn to God” let’s help them find God not hate or condemn them
