*Nigeria: Kudos To The National Assembly For Banning Same Sex Marriage
By Amiru Adamu
Whatever the gay rights campaigners may say, the senate of the federal republic of Nigeria has done a commendable job by passing the bill prohibiting same sex marriage in Nigeria. This law banning marriage and public display of affection between homosexual couples, with a provision of up to fourteen years imprisonment for violators is a historic and brave move that will help save our generation and the upcoming generations from descending into one of the most sinful acts known to humanity, and the total collapse of shame and honor in our country We’ Nigerians are cultured people. We are religious people who follow the teachings of Islam and Christianity. And though Nigeria has a constitution that guarantees’ our rights, we are also bound by our religious commandments that forbids us from engaging in acts that are ungodly, unnatural, unprofitable, un-cultural and unhealthy. Homosexuality and lesbianism have no place in Islam and Christianity as clearly stated in the following quotes from the two holy books; Qur’an and Bible. The holy Qur’an in surat Al-Araf (The heights) (7:80-84) states “We also (sent) Lut: he said to his people: "Do ye commit lewdness such as no people in creation (ever) committed before you? "For ye practice your lusts on men in preference to women: ye are indeed a people transgressing beyond bounds." And his people gave no answer but this: they said, "drive them out of your city: these are indeed men who want to be clean and pure!" But We saved him and his family, except his wife: she was of those who lagged behind. And We rained down on them a shower (of brimstone): then see what was the end of those who indulged in sin and crime! ( Continues below…… )

The holy Bible in Romans (1:21-27) also states “21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles. 24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen. 26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error! ( Continues below…… )

These verses from the two holy books alone are enough justification for the passage of the bill. Though the bill has a uniform support from majority of Nigerians, the gay right campaigners have refused to see reason. They insist on instigating some foreign countries to descend so low, as to threaten the withdrawal of the assistance given to Nigeria for its fight against HIV/AIDS. They also went further to instigate some youths to storm the national assembly to protest against the bill. The brainwashed youths shamelessly demanded for their right to carryout same sex marriages as is the case in other countries which have legalized Homosexualism and lesbianism. The most amazing part of the debate is the fact that, some of these countries trying to pressure Nigeria on human rights issues are the same countries that banned the use of veil (Hijab) by Muslim women, who chose to cover their faces in accordance with the teachings of their faith. As they argued that veils are alien to their culture, so also is homosexuality and lesbianism to ours. It is my opinion that banning same sex marriage will bring nothing but the much needed good luck to Nigeria. I want to use this medium to call on members of the House of Representatives to hasten the passage of the bill, so it can be signed into law by President Jonathan. Thank you Nigerian Senators for a job well done!
