Nigerian pastor says gay marriage will wipe out humanity
As Nigeria considers a 'Jail the Gays' bill, which would imprison any homosexual or anyone failing to report any gay people they know, Pastor Enoch Adeboye stirs up anti-gay feelings
A Nigerian pastor has said allowing gay people to get married will end up wiping out humanity.
Speaking at Obafemi Awolowo University, Pastor Enoch Adeboye warned Nigerians of allowing gay rights in the African country.
According to the Nigerian Tribune, he said: ‘Same-sex marriage is an anathema to the will of God for human beings to be fruitful, replenish and multiply on earth. Anything contrary to that is evil.
‘How can a man who marries a fellow man produce a child and how can a woman who marries a fellow woman produce a child?
‘If this evil is allowed to stay, there will not be newborns again in the world. As the older generation dies, will there be a new generation to succeed it? Even plants and animals have new generations to succeed them.’
The pastor called on people practicing homosexuality to repent and ‘flee from the wrath of God, adding ‘like poles repel, while unlike poles attract.’
