The fact that the U.S government legalized same sex marriage across its federation will be in the news for a while and a lot of people are going to have a lot to say about it.
People like the Bishop of Minna Diocese, Rt. Revd. Daniel Yisa, has come out openly to condemn the Supreme Court’s ruling describing it as Satan’s agenda devoid of God.
He said that gay was not a Biblical or an African practice, “If God hates it, we all must hate it.”
“We must know the basic truth of the Bible. As far as we are concerned as Nigerians, same- sex marriage is not our portion. Whoever wants to do that in his country can do that in his free volition, but should not necessarily say that the Bible says so.
“The issue is that, as a nation, we keep calling on God without meeting God’s conditions. There are certain things we are not supposed to do and there are also those we are supposed to do if we have to remain his people.
“We, as Christians and members of the Anglican family, God has remained faithful to us. And we, as humans should do our best to maintain that relationship with God. We cannot continue to wallow in sin and immorality and then claim that He is our God.
“He is a righteous God. If we must serve Him, we must try to keep ourselves righteous as He is, so that we can maintain that cordial relationship that He has established from the very beginning. We should not claim privileges without responsibilities”.
