Pictures: Nigerian Gays Protest In New York

Seven Nigerian gays yesterday in New York, United States, protested the passage of a bill by the Senate banning same-sex marriage.

They gathered in front of the Nigeria House to express their displeasure over the bill which will not become law until its passage by the House of Representatives and assented by President Goodluck Jonathan.

If it becomes law as passed by the senate, offenders will get up to 14-year jail sentence. One of the organisers of the event, Ifeanyi Orazulike, presented a petition with 57,000 signatures to the Nigerian Consulate. The petition addressed to the President reads:

“My name is Ifeanyi Orazulike, and I am not illegal.

“As a Nigerian citizen, and a public health advocate, I call upon you to stop the draconian, anti-human rights, anti- HIV/AIDS prevention and un-democratic legislation just passed by the national Senate.

“If this bill is approved, Nigeria will place itself outside the community of democratic nations, in a moment in which the country is facing serious internal and external anti-democratic threats. The implications of the bill with its recent modification would affect tireless and long years of work in the protection and promotion of human rights, HIV/AIDS prevention, and the entrenchment of democracy in our country.

“As the elected guardian of the human and civil rights of ALL Nigerians, I urge you to show respect for the diversity in our great democracy, and refuse to sign this bill.


Ifeanyi Kelly Orazulike

Director, International Center for Advocacy on Right to Health (ICARH).”

    These ones are no christian, they are satanic agents. They don’t have the first clue about christianity. They may claim to be gay but they should never claim to be christians. It is heresy to say you follow Christ and practice sodomy! The very reason why God destroyed the twin city of sodom and gomorra. No doubt they are carrying out satanic agenda to pull more unguided souls to hell. May God have mercy on their deluded souls.

    It is not your job to make them feel bad…it is better to speak the truth in love and share that God loves them as well. Shouting at them and talking to, & about them the way you did will not help things. Try to pray about your approach. “He who does not have sin, let him cast the first stone.”…the words of Jesus Himeself…It is our job as Christians to show love and then present the gospel truth in love, and not to be shout at people and say Satan resides in them. That’s not cool at all. I’m a Christian and I know what the bible says about being gay, but God does not call us to disrespect them just because they chose that lifestyle okay? Please check yourself that you are also not sinning too..
