The Primate, Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), the Most Revd. Nicholas Okoh, yesterday, called on the Federal Government to pull out of the United Nations Organization, UNO, if it continued in its recognition of gay marriage in the guise of promoting fundamental human rights. The Primate, who made the call in Abuja at the human rights consultative forum to define the stance of the church on the issue of human rights and homosexuality, described as a wolf in sheep clothing those championing homosexuality under the guise of human rights advocacy.
His words: “In reaction to the role of the UN human rights groups who were using that platform to fight for the two Malawi boys who got married as homosexuals, I said that if the UNO is now an organ for the advancement of homosexual lifestyle, it was time Nigeria pulled out of that organisation in order to protect the moral health of our nation.
The guest speaker, Dr, Vinay Samuel, from UK in his keynote address, urged Nigerians to be carried away by the quest for human rights that will make them flourish rather than one that was contested, saying every human right must be shaped by the cultural understanding of each area.
He said: “Nigeria as a much larger nation has to take leadership in seeking to relate human rights to Christian faith and to African culture.
COMMENT: Dr. Vinay Samuel is an Indian by nationality who lives and works in England. He is linked to Anglican Mainstream and the Global South groups who are now actively trying to undermine the enlightened morality of the English people. Therefore, I assume, having said the above he will now be campaigning for the full acceptance of and equality for all gay people in the Church of England because inclusiveness is most definitely the cultural zeitgeist in England at this moment in time. If he doesn't then he is a hypocrite and, as an academic, a complete phoney.
