    Arresting people for their sexuality shouldn’t be a thing in 2017. Let them live.

      God said its wrong. God is the ultimate truth. Nobody can question that fact. You can believe the lie of the devil if you chose but it is what it is. The government doesn’t get it right always there is a lot off important work to be done but this time this homosexual law is right. We need to protect our young men and women from this deviant curse. Be on the right team my friend. Happy Sunday.

      @Astros and @Oghogho. If that is the case, why don’t we leave the judging and punishment to God? Surely God is very capable of taking care of his business. No?

    Soooooo it’s legal to marry 10 year old girls to 40 year old men because … religion.
    But adults cannot have sex with other consenting adults because … religion?
    And boko harem still have some of our girls years later… . but who has been arrested?
    Meanwhile we are not arresting or raiding politicians homes to uncover all our country’s stolen wealth … ?
    Oh yes…and the naira is still useless and there’s still no light.
    Also flood and its disaterous after effects…

    Deziani and Patience Jonathan are still roaming free and haven’t been charged to court yet. . .I’m not in support of homosexuality, but please let’s focus on serious matters that affect our economic growth. Nigeria is facing more pressing issues right now than sexuality matters. BTW the human being who had the impetus to import containers of snakes, millipedes, geckos and spiders, I hope he/she has been arrested and charged to court too??

I really don’t care whichever parties anyone belongs to. . .in fact I never knew that until you pointed that out. I’m not into politics neither do my comments on this blog aim to be anything political. I’m only stressing the need that those two should be locked up alongside the other corrupt thieves in the nation, of course there are several.

    it’s good when the laws of the land is in accordance to Gods law. No harm can come out of it.
    God is the ultimate and sovereign judge for sin. Homosexuality is sin by His order; it is not decided by public opinion or deceived/false clergy. Changing societies do not dictate God’s standards. Sin is defined by God for us in the Bible. It is the source for what God says is holy and righteous or sin and abomination. Hebrews 13:8 states that God is the same yesterday, today, and forever; he does not “go with the flow.”

    God’s Word says that homosexuality is unnatural, a perversion, an abomination, fornication, vile affections, and a great sin against Him. He states any sexual act outside of marriage is adultery (hetro or homo sexual). Sex is to be between man and woman within marriage.
    There is hope for sinners that acknowledged their sin and ask for forgiveness. Christ was sent for the purpose of forgiving sin and bringing people back home to God.
    People have the free will to break Gods law and sin. But please don’t try and decieve yourself saying your lifestyle choice is not a sin when actually it is. At the end of the day it is you who will lose the benefit of forgiveness through Christ because you are not asking for forgiveness you seek to challenge God. We all know what happened to the angels who challenged God.

      @Bokun i have a problem with your assertion above. If yoy go through the bible you will discover that when ever homosexuality is mentioned, itbalsobtalks about adultery and fornication. But because majority of the people are involved in fornicarion and adultery they wont want it to be criminalized. That when we start hearing things like body no be wood. If Nigerians feel so strongly about what God says about sexual sins, then we should ban all of them. At least sharia has it right but we are the first to complain when fornicators are caught under Islam. Our reaponse is always ” it is the couplea business to have sex”.

    I do not hate homosexuals on the contrary I feel they need help but wickedness in high places feeds the addiction. I feel if you legalise drugs you will get a lotta people addicted. My mum was born in the 40s she said it was unheard off so if people claim they were born that way does that mean all off a sudden there has been some rapid genetic evolution causing an increase in homosexual cases in Nigeria……… I don’t think so. I feel popular culture is to blame. It’s a modern phenomenon. Yeap in Ancient Greece/Roman times a lot of sexual perversion was part of everyday life including paedophile. Thank God pedo tinzs isn’t legal yet but at the rate of the homo crusaders I give it 5 more years and even sleeping with animals will be permitted and protected. The government got to do what it needs to do. I wish they offered counselling though.

    • ***

      July 30, 2017 at 7:13 pm

      I agree with you o not just paedophilia, the following will be allowed;
      1. Incestuous relationships/marriages: brother & sister, brother & mother, father & daughter, grand-mother& grand- daughter etc
      2. Gay incestuous relationships/marriages: brother & brother, sister & sister, father & son etc
      3. Bisexual incestuous marriages: male or female in relationships with male and female blood siblings
      4. Gay polygamy, gay incestuous polygamy and their corresponding polyandry cases
      5. Bisexual polygamy, bisexual incestuous polygamy and their corresponding polyandry cases…as long as their all 18 and above, they should all have liberty to select their spouse(s) right?! Consenting adults should have freedom to have more than one spouse as long as they aren’t hurting anybody. Right? When it comes to sexuality let us just be random like lower animals as long as we aren’t hurting people…lol…rubbish!

      Very soon people will soon argue that 18 as consenting age is too old, why not 16 or 15? What is so special about the age 18?

      July 30, 2017 at 10:49 pm

      @Philadelphia God also warns against fornication, adultery, He hates divorce but guess what these acts are not only acceptable but are even promoted as the new normal.
      I’m a christain, I believe homosexuality is a sin but arresting and imprisoning for 14yrs is not what my God will suggest. The God way is to hate the sin and not the sinner. Sin is sin, homosexuals will go to the same hell as fornicators, liars and adulterers. If we want to claim religion and morals, these sins should also have punishments.
      Nigeria is not a religious state, I mean we kept quiet when govt used our money during recession to fund a Hajj Commission, we permit Sharia, we can’t even set a legal age for marriage because we don’t want to step on toes based on religion
      , our churches are business ventures free from taxation.
      The most painful part for me, upon all these religion and morals, it doesn’t reflect in our dealings with each other. Our legacy to coming generations is a country in shambles in all spheres except the imprisonment of homosexuals!

    There is nothing wrong in being gay. 3rd world mentality is what is killing Nigeria, primitive thinking is why this country is the way it’s today. How do arresting gay people stop poverty, stop politicians from looting our money, stop kidnappers from stop kidnapping. Every body want to come to America but what makes America great is this type of arrest will never happen in America because it’s a country of freedom that’s why the are richest Country the world have ever known. We should let gays be free in Nigeria instead of being hidden. Religion have nothing to do with this issue.

      Wrong. Religion got everything to do with it. God is against homosexuality and warns against the act, educate yourself. We look to God to set standards stop looking at the west to set standards for you. They are human and make mistakes same as you. They are not in anyway superior to you.

      July 30, 2017 at 8:57 pm

      Russia, China and many middle eastern countries have harsh laws against homosexuality/homosexuals. Are they primitive too? Is it killing them from developing? Absolutey no.
      This is more of a morality issue. If Nigeria chooses to have laws against gays, their citizens, non citizens should abide by it. Every country is not obligated to emulate America, U.S is not the standard to follow. Funny thing is, majority of Americans are against homosexuality which is one of the reasons Trump won and there’s a constant debate between Republicans and democrats on issues like gays, abortion etc.
      The only problem here is the fact that Nigerian government, laws applies more to the poor people. Meanwhile,many in the government are hardcore criminals, thieves, pedophiles, rapists but are not arrested. And there are more serious issues to focus on

    @seriously Your comment really hit the nail on the head for me. Mainly the part that a lot of Nigerian laws only apply to Nigerian’ poors, the ones who are living by the bible through and through, in the end they are the only ones punished for being human and making mistakes and being caught in the act. Obviously I’m applying this theory to everything now. But coming back to homosexuals, this is not something people living comfortably in Nigeria are concerned with. This is just another subject that is there to distract the masses from the real issues crippling society. It is not legal and people do it, and they have always been doing it, whether you like it or not some husbands are telling you there disgust in the matter then using services of other men. Fact! That’s just the way of this world and Nigeria is no different. You can catch a few but you won’t catch all ever. This law only tells me that our government is so weak they had to bring in a law to please the masses, meanwhile they are gutless to bring in laws that can personally make positive differences to everyone in every state of this country. I’m not saying Nigeria should never look into this subject but how convenient of the government to bring in a law that most people who can’t and won’t think for themselves will use the bible to defend their argument.

    Homosexuals is natural. It have nothing to do with choice or religion. I am male who works with gay people at my job I know the are gay but I never discriminate them base on there sexuality. Just because I am not gay does not mean I will be anti gay. Religious believe is the reason people behave very bad around gay people. Homosexuals is real most married men and women in Nigeria are gay but giving the primitive way of thinking that’s still alive in Nigeria all of them remain in the closet.

      You are ignorant. It’s okay not to be in agreement with homosexuality, it doesn’t mean you hate gays. It’s a sin just like stealing, fornication etc. Homosexuality is very unnatural from the biological and scientific aspect, being attracted to the same sex is odd. However, it doesn’t mean you should accept, tolerate or hate them either.
      It’s not primitive at all. Not everyone should accept sin, immorality or freedom to whatever

    With one hand they will carry 5 girlfirends and 10 wizes. With the other hand they will open verse in bible proclaiming their devotion to a blues eyes, blonde haired saviour.
    With one hand they will give money to pastor to buy private jet and demand them forgiven when caught fornicating. With the other hand say homosexuals should be harshly judged.
    1. Homoesexuality is natural and has existed since the begining of the human race.
    2. If you weren’t so brainwashed and mis/uneducated on your own history, you would know that homosexuals (all LGBTQ spectrum) was traditionally accepted in African before foreigners came with their gods.
    3. Who is another human being to tell another human being what to do with their bodies.
    4. No one in Nigeria will be truly free, untill all Nigerians are truly free (“emancipate yourself from mental slavery”)

There is a pedo group who support sex with children. They give EXACTLY the same wretched argument to support their ultimate quest for sexual gratification. It’s disgusting. God does not support homosexuality, culture does not support it, society abhors it.

    @Philadelphia and @Seriously you guys nailed it. Homosexuality is totally wrong. There is no two way about it. Civilization or development can never be linked with acceptance of Homosexuality. If not some Arab states will not be developed, despite they are very much against Homosexuality. Please our God and Master is against this nonsense. The Nigerian police did the right thing this time.

    Jail sentence for homosexuals will go a long way in curbing the spread of this unnatural sexual abomination in Nigeria. Just thinking about the heavy jail sentence is enough to deter experimentalist. We got other sexual perversion/ corruption in Nigeria no one is denying that fact, homosexuality is by far the most unnatural next to child abuse. Yes people should be allowed to chose their sin however a sin that would impact negatively on society I.e drug addiction it’s a good thing for the government to step in to protect citizens. I say no to homosexuality in Nigeria. We don’t need to add to our problems. I cant believe some of the lawless, atheists on the comments. If you don’t follow God or law . What kind of boundaries do you guys have. That kind of attitude leads to breakdown of society. Were every man does exactly as their lust desires. God forbid the spirit of sodom and Gomorrah.

    What’s wrong is wrong. The reason homosexuality is against the law is not because of religion. It is for health reasons and other issues that have been proven to come along with the lifestyle. The LGBT website has the statistics to prove it – an average homosexual has an about 500 (or more) sexual partners in his/her life time, domestic violence, AIDS, etc is 5x more likely in a homosexual relationship. Don’t take my word for it just research the LGBT’s published statistics. The group published the statistics so people can feel sorry for them.

    Being gay is a choice and it is a very destructive lifestyle, religion has absolutely nothing to do with it.

    “It is easy to be tolerant of the principles of other people if you have none of your own.”
