      God was helping America when it was God’s own Country. Today, the U.S. is officially Satan’s own country. Watch judgement from God Almighty come swiftly. Your country is like a fan that has been switched off but is still rotating. We here are interested in your affairs because the U.S. is trying to export perversion everywhere and Almighty God will not permit it!

      Thanks for pointing this out in a polite way. I am a Nigerian and the ignorance shown by some (not all) Nigerians is absurd. All Nigerians are not as dumb as the person that said “God help America”. Just saying.

      @ann. LOOOOOOL. the shade in ur comment tho.

      you are the best. u have said everything.

      god help america indeed. let me ask ,u why are nigerian celebs going to america to give birth to their kids (example mercy johnson, adaeze yobo etc) if america is so cursed and doomed why are they still going to america to birth their kids. nonsense
      instead they should go to iraq or iran or even better stay in nigeria and give birth to their kids,these countries have “values” and “culture” and are “god fearing” countries.

      all of that are insulting america, if I offer u american citizenship right now wouldn’t you take it instantly. u are the same fools that will be doing night vigil just because u want american embassy to give u visa. mumus

      nonsense.

      some of u are very stupid and even if we present u with facts and studies u will never still agree.
      the opposite of heterosexuality is homosexuality.

      some boys like boys and some girls like girls. its not about sex. its about love and feelings and attraction. I like u, u like me and we decide to be together, so how is it affecting u and ur pathetic life.

      don’t quote ur bible for me cause I don’t believe in it. how would u feel if I start quoting budaism scriptures for u and forcing u to obey budah.

Go to American embassies and see how Nigerians are scrambling to get out of Nigeria. America has a lot of faults but this is a big win for humanity. Congratulations.

      Oh please! Some of you behave like you did not go to school. Basic history is all you need my friend. America got her independence in what? 1776. Check the history of the country 55 years after independence like Nigeria is and tell me which country is better. When I read comments like these, I read inferiority complex and deep rooted insecurity issues. God has not blessed and did not bless America. Time brought them experience, experience brought the development. Nigerians and even other Africans behave like the Americans are the most intelligent of all. They wave their magic wand and boom! Lol, you people should read books on the history of civizalition. From the Egyptians, to the Romans to the British. All of them were once empires even France. All of them abhorred homosexuality at a time and they held world power. Americans accepting homosexuality is not a sign of their advanced brain and cognitive evolution but rather a sign of deep rooted perversion that has come to light.

      According to the Biology the “whites” brought to us, homosexuality is a deviation from nature. According to the basic evolutionary principle of survival of the fittest, homosexuals are the least fit for the environment and should have been long gone. I have had Caucasian biology and physics professors teach this to their class. Mind you this was not in a bid to discriminate but rather to inform. There’s no legitimate scientific data, findings and conclusion that proves homosexuals are born a certain way or a product of the environment. Technically homosexuals should be glad that they are just being allowed to marry and live freely, if they were allowed back in the days and not forced on straight people, according to the science they love to quote and misquote, they would be no more.

      Homosexuality still fascinates the science world because it defies almost everything believed and thought to be true.If they are truly born that way, then anything genetic is inheritable, would their offspring turn out gay too? So far that has been false, making us ask the question of genetic determinism again. Is it the environment? Still false or higher or lower cognitive processing? Or did some divine and supreme being happen to order things like this? Scientists don’t believe in this Or is this evolution’s way of controlling population? Which would come to null as homosexuals are using reproductive technology to get offspring. Homosexuality has been right there from the beginning like heterosexuality and every and any other illness both mental and physical. The length of its practice is not a justication of its legitimacy both scientifically and otherwise.

      Personally I’m happy for them but the win wasn’t a land slide 5-4, it shows that no matter how far in perversion, development or whatever anybody calls it people have gone, some people still maintain their stand.

      @rainer,
      Singapore got indepence in 1965. It is better than Nigeria
      Malaysia got independence in 1957. It is older than Nigeria by 3 years and better than us. Will Nigeria’s problems go away in 3 years?
      India got independence 1947, it is older than Nigeria by 13 years, Will Nigeria be fixed in 13 years?
      All these countries have lesser resources than Nigeria, yet they are ahead of us.
      I think you are the one that need to check history.
      Wether people are born gay or they choose to be gay. Live and let Live.
      BTW some Caucasian scientist in the era of slavery disagree on wether black people are intellectually inferior or not. Scientist are also contradicting eachother on climate change just like they did with the shape of the earth.
      You can belief what you want. It is a free world.

Well, hope u do realise, that they are the owners of that GOD too! And so can do whatever they want with their GOD!! your OLD TESTAMENT BIBLE clearly says there, that he is the GOD of ISAAC JACOB & ABRAHAM!! not the God of FUNKE, OMALICHA & BABATUNDE0!!!

      June 27, 2015 at 11:28 pm

      Exactly! We have brains and can think for ourselves and can thus cherry pick what we like from the West and speak up about what we do not like. We have not silenced our conscience. We still recognise depravity and this right here is wrong. If homosexuality was ‘so normal’, why do we have it being shoved down our throats? It’s simply because you see something everywhere, you start to rationalise and think, maybe it’s okay. They aren’t hurting anyone, true. BUT, it is still wrong. You have a choice to do whatever you want with your body, that’s your right but please remain in your closet and stop shoving it down our throats. Are we even thinking of generations yet unborn? What sort of world will we leave behind? If our parents were all gay, would we even be here? Let’s stop trying to seem cool and call a spade by its name. Before y’all start with the comments, I’m not homophobic and yes, I will tell my kids it’s a sin before God like lying, stealing etc.

      dehumanize a large group of people, to deny
      their humanity, their dignity and personhood.the world will be abetter place if you guys stop paraphrasing a book written over 2000 years ago.Love is patient ,love is kind,love is love and love wins everything.I

      I am thoroughly disappointed! I saw them rejoicing and almost 70 % where beautiful men who should have been married to reduce our teeming young unmarried ladies.

      May God help the World hoping they won’t legalise that of man and animal union!
      Hmmm most of these men and women suffered heart break and choose to love same sex!

      What ever is not God’s design, has my condemnation.
      For those saying pray for Nigeria, Nigerians are making a lot of progress! We aren’t doing badly! We are getting there.

      I still say God help all the countries that have legalised abomination!
      No body dare bring that nonsense to Nigeria. 14 years is sacrosanct! Mtcheew.

      How could God have endowed a man reproductively for another man? Cast young
      Or a woman for another woman? God does not support this and so don’t i. Gen 38 6-10 buttressed God’s standard!

      It’s nobody’s culture or belief Sophia. It’s about humanity and the right to be entitled to the legal benefits of marriage just like everyone else. America is a socially backward country, and even with this recent victory became the 21st country to recognize same-sex marriages. 21st?? For a self pronounced world leader? That’s shameful. In any event, better late than never. Nigeria will in some lifetime catch up. Until then, let the hypocrisy continue.

      To me it is not about wrong and right, it’s about freedom. We can determine what happenes to us now but After death I question so, because God by faith is the only judge- are you sure, you will make it to heaven even after trying to attack or suppress people’s freedom that harms no one. We can sleep with a dog, man, woman, chair na our concern. Freedom is freedom, that does not need to be debated except towards try hard supposed tyrants.

If god did not destroy the world when wars and terrorism are killing people everywhere, he did not destroy Nigeria when people shout his name but do more to destroy our country, he did not destroy the world when pedophiles are buying and raping little boys and girls. If he did not destroy the world with all the atrocities people have committed. What makes you think your god will destroy the world because of two consenting people that just want to love each other?

Maybe you have not noticed, most decent commenters have stayed away. U & A real Nigerian are all over the place like dogs who have just been infected with rabies. Even American gays respect themselves. In Central London yesterday, there was a gay parade and it was peaceful, and colourful. Yet you gays on BN will not let us drink water.

      this is the same thing white people use to do to blacks. they will package their racism. they will say back handed racist comments to blacks

    (Im especially writing to this to the christians)We all know the story about “If you have not sinned, then throw the first stone.” But no one finishes the part where Jesus said, “Woman even I dont condemn you BUT go and SIN NO MORE.” The same God who said “Dont lie, dont steal, dont commit adultrery, no fornication (premarital sex) He also grouped homosexuality as a sin along side greed and others( 1Corinthians 6 vs 9-10 New Testament)…… Jesus DIDN’T CONDEMN SIN BUT HE DIDNT CONDONE peoples sins either. I am guilty of lying, greed and thinking wrong thoughts etc… The difference be say, I dont condone my sin cos I know God doesnt , and so I dont condone or agree with homosexuality but I dont condemn them because i am not GOd. Me and them are guilty on the same level. NO one sin is greater than the other but the way out is go to GOd for forgiveness…. But we have to start by accepting that it is not of God to have premarital sex, as well as lie, or steal or to carry out a homosexual relationsip. We cant just pick and choose which sins we think are the worst ones, condone some and leave some for our convinicence. bad ting na bad ting, WHY? because God said so NOT because it is “NOT AFRICAN” or because it is “NOT OUR CULTURE.” If that is your only reason why you think gays should not marry then you have no point because cultures change.

      learn to separate religion from state.

      the so called bible ur quoting is the same bible slave owners were quoting during the slave era. the bible condones slavery. (I know u will say its the old testament blah blah blah ignore it)

      it is written in the bible

      “masters be kind to ur slaves”
      the bible didn’t say thou shall not have slaves the bible said u can have slaves but u should be kind to them.

      nobody in this world can live their life according to the bible.

      10 commandments, thou shall not steal. but the rihanna and beyonce songs on ur phone didn’t u steal it from the internet. did u buy those songs? did u pay for those songs? oya lie, let thunder fire u.

      u christains make me laugh.

    Too bad. I pity the next generation of Americans. It’s obvious humans have a particular difficulty learning from history. The old Roman Empire also reached the heights of depravity before they were destroyed. Anyway, I guess China is waiting by the sidelines, warming up to take over world power status from U.S. I predict that America will implode sooner than later. Oh btw, I’m not hating on America, I love the country, but this is too much. What next? Legalizing bestiality and incest? We are waiting.

      The fall of the Roman Empire had nothing to do with their “depravity”, you fool. Stop feeding your already misinformed mind with delusions.
      China to take over from the US? What has that got to do with any of this? And how are the Chinese who are know for mass censoring and abuse of human rights any better?
      Your weak prediction of the US’ upcoming implosion based on gay marriage legalisation is utterly laughable, ridiculous, and shows how willing you are to allow yourself be blinded by ignorance and hate.
      And oh, if people want to commit consensual incest, it is none of your business.

    The rainbow that God used to signify that He will not destroy the earth by water again, that is what they are using to celebrate sin. Love does not exist apart from truth, it rejoices when truth wins. Love (God) is not rejoicing over this mess. God is love, but God is holy.

    God’s standard from the scripture. …
    .Rom.1.24-32 (NlT)
    So God abandoned them to do whatever shameful things their hearts desired. As a result, they did vile and degrading things with each other’s bodies. They traded the truth about God for a lie. So they worshiped and served the things God created instead of the Creator himself, who is worthy of eternal praise! Amen. That is why God abandoned them to their shameful desires. Even the women turned against the natural way to have sex and instead indulged in sex with each other. And the men, instead of having normal sexual relations with women, burned with lust for each other. Men did shameful things with other men, and as a result of this sin, they suffered within themselves the penalty they deserved. Since they thought it foolish to acknowledge God, he abandoned them to their foolish thinking and let them do things that should never be done. They know God’s justice requires that those who do these things deserve to die, yet they do them anyway. Worse yet, they encourage others to do them, too.

      Forget sodom and gomorrah…they had such punishment because jesus had not yet died for sins. As for us now, we are living in a time of grace due to the blood of jesus, and that is why God is patient with us, giving us a long rope, so we can repent and not miss heaven. I just hope most of us grab that rope before our end comes.

    I have a question which is ‘why is this getting an uproar’? America isn’t even part of the first 15 countries to legalise same sex marriage. Heck even in Ireland it is legal (thanks to Popular vote). I didn’t see any post on this. In Iceland, United Kingdom, Uruguay, Argentina same sex marriage is legal. Because from this comment it looks like some of y’all just wait and read Nigerian blogs to get news., hence all this “America is rotten”. I understand America is a super power of countries but again, why didn’t the historic voting on Ireland make any news on Nigerian blogs to help some of you and your situation.

    PS: the brother/ sister above cursing Obama and going as far as suicide, you are a disgrace to the religion that is makin you oppose homosexuality (so much for being religious…because your God didn’t teach you all this…you guys don’t realise you are meant to evangelise and win souls everywhere but hey, you’ve just succeeded in driving Some people away). Your hypocrisy stinks but that’s for another day. But please do not bask in ignorance and show your ignorance…Obama is NOT the Supreme Court. He isn’t the SCOTUS that voted 5-4 in favour of same sex marriage. Get your head out of the bucket and do some actual reading. Ignorance is not bliss…Toh

They control the news on our TV, most of the movies we watch, most of the stars our children want to be like. It is not the best place to live, she doesn’t have the highest GDP per capital, she doesn’t have the best healthcare but it is the most influential, her decision affects your children cos they will start asking you questions when they start seeing ridiculous things on adverts while watching CNN. Guess what gave birth to Boko Haram? after 911, US invaded afghanistan, al queda became more popular and global terrorism went to another level, spill over is what we have here. it’s a new world, with globalization, what america does matter. if Sweden legalizes gay marriage, how does that really affect us? or Norway or Netherland? or Germany? those ones are not as influential but the US, what they do affect the world.

    .
    In 1931, thousands of years after the ‘ bible’ flood, China experienced a flood that the death toll was between 2,500,000 – 3,700,000. Where was the damn rainbow? Or China is in planet Mars.

      Read for understanding- China is not the whole world! The bible said the rainbow was a sign that God would never destroy the whole world.

      Y’all should stop attacking and ridiculing christians for what they believe. Just because you dont believe it, doesnt make it wrong. Atheism in itself is a religion and there is no scientific proof beyond reasonable doubt that there is no God. So please give the patronising annoying comments a rest!

    I am a christian but my feelings on this issue do not even stem from whether homosexuality is biblical or not. I have concerns about the entitlement we are breeding in this generation. The ‘because i am and i want therefore i must have’ mentality needs to stop.

    Whatever the rights and wrongs of homosexuality, whether it is genetic or otherwise, it cannot be equated to a heterosexual relationship for this sole reason- it does not ensure procreation. Even from an evolutionary standpoint, genes naturally select for survival of a species. Without outside help, homosexual couples cannot procreate. On that basis alone, homosexuality cannot be equated to heterosexuality. If we then accept this as fact, that heterosexuality is better for humanity, then society has a responsibility to ensure that heterosexuality and the male/female/children family structure is the preferred mode of creating families.

    I respect the right of anyone to be who they want to be and practice what they want to but stop demanding rights historically ascribed to heterosexual couples. Choose your lifestyle and accept the so called consequences of that lifestyle! Be gay by all means but dont expect to be married and have the benefits of a family. Its akin to eating your cake and having it! Marriage has and should be between a man and a woman. Kids should ideally be raised in a male/female household except where circumstances such as death and so on occur. Go on and have your long term relationships with people of the same sex but for goodness sake, accept what this entails rather than trying to bend the rules of society to your will and lifestyle.

    Just because you want doesnt mean you must have! You are not entitled to everything you want! Learning this basic principle is key to being an adult.
