Archbishop of Jos Opposes Discrimination Against Gay People

by Anike Jacobs

The Archbishop of Jos, Ignatius Kaigama has come out to stress that the Catholic Church in Nigeria is opposed to any kind of discrimination against homosexuals.

The Nigerian govt passed a law last year that hands a 14-year sentence to anyone in a same-sex union or in a homosexual relationship.

Archbishop Ignatius Kaigama in a statement to the press said (via The Tablet)

“We are not supporting the criminalization of people with different sexual orientations,” Archbishop Kaigama stressed. “We would defend any person with homosexual orientation who is being harassed, who is being imprisoned, who is being punished.”

 “The Government may want to punish them – we don’t. In fact we will tell the Government to stop punishing those with different orientations.”

  1. I don’t believe the person saying this is a real bishop, A bishop shouldd know better,somebody well educated in the word of GOD Christians, it is time to watch whom you follow and listin to, how can somebody who call himself a bishop demostrate this high level of ignorant and poor knowledge of what the word of GOD says about gay,lisbeans etc. Is it not a shame that a bishop don’t have acurate knowledge of d word of GOD and can’t defend the same. Pls somebody should help me tell the bishop to go and read Leviticus 20:1-27 verse 13 is specific obout gay let him also read Romans 1:21-32..is a pity,what kind of Christians will this kind of bishop produce. Well, what somebody call hiself doesn’t matter but what GOD call U is what matters.
