Nigeria columnist: 'Gay sex leads to men wearing diapers'

Author warns of the 'hazards' of homosexual behavior and urges parents to protect their children
Nigeria President Goodluck Jonathan signed the anti-gay bill into law this January.

A Nigerian columnist has said gay sex leads to adults wearing diapers.

Benedict Hart wrote an article in the Nigerian Vanguard daily newspaper in order to support the new draconian anti-gay law.

In the article 'Protecting Children From The Scourge of Homosexuality', he claims gay people are not only exposed to 'grave spiritual dangers' but also 'fatal health hazards'.

Without citing medical or scientific sources, Hart states: 'Medical experts have confirmed that anal intercourse which homosexuals practise tends to stretch and greatly weaken the anal sphincter muscles, leading to serious digestive problems, constipation, irregularity (of bowel movements), and ultimately to cancer of the rectum.”

As a result, he says, 'many homosexual men have to wear diaper-like products…'

He also goes on to describe the common 'habits' of LGBTI people, saying many homosexuals ‘recruit’ young ones into ‘these foolish habits’.

‘They are often gifted in the arts and so attract people to themselves. They are often given to moods,’ Hart adds.

The columinst also quotes the Bible and psychologists, who say parents should be held responsible for their children’s homosexual behavior.

Nigeria’s harsh new law was passed in January and it imposes up to 14 years in jail for gay relationships.

While commended in his own country, President Goodluck Jonathan was widely criticized internationally for signing the bill into law that bans gay marriage, same-sex ‘amorous relationships’ and membership of gay rights groups.

‘Beyond even prohibiting same-sex marriage, this law dangerously restricts freedom of assembly and expression for all Nigerians,’ said US Secretary of State John Kerry said.

Let the Nigerians have their own country and culture. It's not mandatory they adopt the rules of a civilised society after all. Let them lives their lives, and without our aid. They don't need it! Their God will provide, as I'm sure they also strongly believe.
