        I’m sure you took away what he was trying to convey. Does he need to have your level of education to have an opinion? and…he is right! truth hurts but the majority of citizens in Nigeria if a survey were to be conducted are in favour of a law banning gay marriage. it’s a democracy, lets move on.

          You are quite silly. If majority of Nigerians said Sharia Law it is what would you say? You cannot persecute a group because you don’t understand them. All these gay bashers are the same people that chase underage girls, sleep with other’s wives etc. I am disgusted that draconian views are being espoused by selfish individuals who only think about themselves. As long as Nigerians are willing to disown their offspring for being gay we will always have idiots who think you can turn a gay man or woman straight by jailing them. 14 freaking years!!!! These leaders should go and hang for hoodwinking the public.

            Yes 14 years! Scary right lol, prayer is what you need so you can accept the wholesome sweetness of pussy instead of what I’m sure you find more appealing.

            yes, praying to an invisible fairytale god rather than dealing with reality makes a lot of sense… instead of reading some silly old book white missionaries forced unto you in the last century how about using your own intellect and educate yourself a little bit for a change??

        You made a sound case against discrimination; let the man spell the way he chooses. You gay right people are always so eloquent and convincing, little wonder how the devil got Eve to eat that apple. Does public nudity affect the economy? Why is it illegal? Does smoking weed in any way affect the economy or wellbeing of this country? Why is it illegal? Is polygamy not a right amongst consenting adults? Why is it illegal in most of the west from whence this liberalization of faggotry sprouts? In my opinion as a jurist and naturalist a good law must have a solid moral base and natural base; as as shepherd how do you cope when all your male cattle or sheep starts cavorting with each other and refuse to touch the females would that look natural to you? Lest we forget the HIV virus was first noticed in the early 80’s amongst gay men, so tread careful when next you want to stick your dick in your partners yanch.

    Uzochukwu wrote: Am surprised that a human being created by God will wake up one day and kick against this law! The international community and who ever that is against this law is devilish! Let me ask the writer one question. Are U aware that drug related cases attracts death penalty in some country? Have U kicked against this law that kills people because they chose to smoke cocain which does not affect the country in anyway? Again if ur parents were gay, would they have given birth to You? And as Christians, We are told that God created Adam and Eve and not Adam and Joseph! We should all rise and support this law that tends to destroy the future of our Children! I know that if I pray that all the Children of the writer should be Gays and Lesbian, he will shout God forbid! The only way to stop this act is to make a law like this! If U want to continue being a guy, go to other countries that allows it!

    My response: I am so sick of this idiotic question: “if your parents were gay, would they have given birth to you?” How obtuse! How ignorant can people get? If my parents were gay, yes, they probably would still have given birth to me, possibly through a surrogate mother in the case of men and with a sperm donor if they were lesbians! Wake up! Read! Educate yourself! And if they chose not to have kids, I wouldn’t exist. And you know what? I wouldn’t care because I wouldn’t know that I didn’t exist.

    And this Adam and Joseph thing. FFS! Get off the cliche train and say something original. How exactly does this law stop your children from being destroyed? Are poor education and poor healthcare services not likely to do that more effectively?

    When the time comes and a member of Uzonchukwu’s family is wrongly accused or arrested based on this new law because he is gay, he will begin to understand the injustice of it. Don’t worry, it’s all coming to a cinema near you, you’ll see.

      So are you satanic folks gay in order to address the other social problems that Nigeria has? Is the gay thing ok just because our leaders are found wanting in other areas of governance? Is your gay rights an automatic assurance of world class infrastructure? Better education? Security et al?

  • ANTI anti-gay law

    I think the dumbest question on the gay issue is, if your parents were gay would they have given birth to you? Well, if my parents were sterile, or if my parents had entered the convent, they would not have given birth to me either. Some people are just irredeemably stupid.

  • Dougpta

    We do not need reams of excuses or Justification for this despicable bill. Just look at past history. Discriminate against Jews = HOLOCAUST (4 Million Jews gassed and Murdered)
    Apartheid in South Africa = We all know the strife that that caused. GROW UP and learn from the past. Pass Hate Laws and one Day some-one will pass a law Hating You!!!! Maybe for Just being BLACK. We are all sinners. No one has the right to play GOD or Judge Gays !!!! .

  • Tosin Otitoju

    May we find our way soon. Uncle Jona mennn, how could you do that? You know and I know that you don’t even believe the shit you signed. Lol.

    • Fab

      It’s not “gay” but homosexual. abomination!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Fab

    Can any of these pro-homosexual tell me that his father married his father or his mother married his mother to give birth to him?

  • D

    I agree with this article completely, but I think it is missing some key points as to why the law is wrong.

    First of all let me say I am a Nigerian!

    Most of the commentary that I have seen from Nigerians online (supporting the bill) does not seem to understand the separation between morality and religious conviction and THE LAW. The real issue at hand is NOT whether homosexuality is a sin,
    abomination, taboo, unAfrican or whatever else people have been calling it. If
    you think it is, that is your business. In fact it is even your right! (Rights
    are important – HINT).

    The question is whether the state – GEJ, senators, police,judiciary etc – has the right to
    intervene in the private, consensual behaviour of adults? The answer in a secular state like Nigeria is NO! And ALL NIGERIANS should support constitutionally limiting the powers of the state, even if they don’t support homosexuality.

    To put it in simpler terms for anyone who refuses to get it: according to Christianity and Islam (the main religions in Nigeria that people are invoking) adultery is a sin and so is fornication. These things are probably also considered wrong according to so-called traditional African morality. BUT who here thinks the police (corrupt useless Naija police o) should be able to arrest people who commit adultery and fornication? Who here thinks you should go to jail or court for these reasons? OR who here
    thinks these are private issues to be dealt with between people personally – and
    their conscience, their God, their families, their spouses, their church???
    Yep, thought so.

    Also, the law is wrong because it limits the free assembly and speech of Nigerians. In fact it is unconstitutonal on these grounds. Nigerians have the right to express their opinions and to gather with others who share their views, as long as they are not inciting violence or hatred. And guess what, the law is also very wrong because IT
    IS INCITING VIOLENCE AND HATRED. How can any responsible government do
    this? Imagine if the law was against Igbo people or Yoruba people, how would
    you feel then? OR imagine if it was against people who are anti-gay? How would
    you feel then? Oh yes I just remembered THE NIGERIAN GOVERNMENT IS NOT RESPONSIBLE!!!!

    Please fellow Nigerians let us understand the real issues and stop the
    state and our USELESS AND MORALLY BANKRUPT POLITICIANS from abusing their power and infringing on our very basic and fundamental rights. If you don’t support homosexuality that is your business, but as a Nigerian citizen you must support the protection of our individual and collective rights.

      To start with NO ONE is a ‘NIGERIA’, unless you are a unrepentant fraudster/terrorist!
      Now your logic of ‘consensual behavior of adult’ doesn’t make any logical sense, if you can only point to few out of the million inversion of so-called governments especially in ‘developed world’ (Those that claim to know it all). Why is it that they ban people (Not only in their countries but everywhere) from freely using the ‘grass/drugs’ of their choice, or allow adults to live polygamous etc.., yet want to claim ‘human rights’ to what 99% of Africans considers abomination?
      The mentality of swallowing everything the ‘whiteman’ tell you is ‘right’ is not only the reason why folk like you will still shamelessly refer to themselves as ‘Nigerians’ a derogatory name given to the entity with nothing in common but forced at gun point to be ‘one fake country’!
      Wake up and smell coffee, this hypocritical support for insanity of ‘same-sex’, but not to condemn the already passed free child abuse act, or daily killings of Biafrans, is aimed at population control from backdoor!
