Archbishop of Jos defends gays, asks FG to stop punishing them

The Archbishop of Jos, Ignatius Kaigama, has condemned the criminalization of gays in Nigeria. Speaking with the Vatican's weekly publication, The Tablet, on Wednesday October 8th, Archbishop Kaigama said the catholic church does not support the criminalizing of people due to their different sexual orientation and urged the federal government to stop punishing gay people.
"We are not supporting the criminalization of people with different sexual orientations. We would defend any person with homosexual orientation who is being harassed, who is being imprisoned, who is being punished. The federal government may want to punish them, we don't. In fact, we will tell the government to stop punishing those with different orientations" he said

Very good!! The Nigerian government should focus more of its energy and legislative zeal on making laws that will curb the unspeakable corruption affecting us all. They should tackle the insecurity challenges, and the power sector which has degenerated to become an embarrassment. Mr President should focus more on refunding both the living and dead immigration job seekers their #1000 which amounted into billions; punish those that stole our $20billion; stop the illegal laundering of our monies abroad, in the name of arms deals.. Other men of God should emulate this clergy, and call the government to order.

There is already a law in place, against rape, and whenever a gay begins think that he can harass you sexually, you are free to sue him for rape or attempted rape.

Nigerian government should stop chasing shadows and focus more on alleviating the sufferings of the ordinary Nigerians... Nigeria is for all of us, and even gays are also citizens of this great country. They all elected the president, and deserve to be protected by him. The last I checked, Nigeria wasn't a theocratic state, but secular. This is a free world, don't impose your ideologies on others!! Who knows; God and all the religion bla bla blah may not even really exist.. let God be the judge.

The archbishop is not saying that the church or him is in support of this act but rather that the FG should not criminalize it because its not a crime!this people are sinners just like the adulterers and nymphpmaniac whom they are to be judged by God and not man!Nigéria already has ill- legalize this which am fully in support but they shoudnt have criminalize it!For some of you calling the man of God names,i pray that God have mercy on you all!only if you know that kind of curse you are attracting to yourself and those around you!This is archbishop's view and he is not calling the FG names sharing his view either!be careful of your utterances most especially the christians among us here.Let God be his judge if what he is saying is in opposition to his words,cos we all know that our God is not too small a God to defend Himself.

Don’t fool yourselves. Those who indulge in sexual sin, or who worship idols, or commit adultery, or are male prostitutes, or practice homosexuality, 10or are thieves, or greedy people, or drunkards, or are abusive, or cheat people—none of these will inherit the Kingdom of God.'' Whether you like them or hate them,if we all do not change and allow Christ to lead our lives,we will all end up in hell. Judgement has long been passed by Christ HIMSELF !

my pain about this thing now, is that people involve in gayism dont want to see the bad in it rather they want to wallow and die in being a gay, their first comment is dont judge others and blah blah blah. Even in the bible its written, call a spear a spear, call a bad thing a bad thing. government impose penalties on some certain act because people will always abuse it, e.g drugs, gay, killing humans, and others you know too well.
i know some people will say please legalise weed, lets smoke and forget the pain of the world. I can equally say that, but that does not mean that weed is good for the public, because many will always abuse it and the result is nothing to write home about. check countries with high rate of drugs and see for your self. can one tell me the reason why God destroy sodom and gomorrah or are you telling me now that its not true? or its a make up story? are you telling me that God is stupid by condeming such act. my brothers lets think twice.

Linda Ikeji, it wud be so wrong if ui think like most of ur blog readers, they claim to know the word of God so much that they forgot the very reason that God gave his only begotten Son that who so ever with blood in his or her body is totally cleans with the blood of the living christ. The law which God made long ago had been broken, because the living christ had paid it all, only in Nigeria that people claim to be christians without vision and the path way of the very God they claim to worship. What did God says in his first word? It wud be a shame if u so call haters of God's other people who came in different sexualities.

Anonymous said...

His comments are not at odds with the Catholic Church's teachings. It is an all encompassing, forgiving, embracing comment which the Church proclaims. He didn't say he condones homosexuality. All he said was that PEOPLE should not be labelled criminals for practicing. Rather teach them the truth, with love.

That's the problem..God didn't die and make anyone God to judge anyone.if u are hostile to people because of their sexual orientation then you have sinned some of you have never met someone who is gay yet u castigate them. Ur sexual orientation doesn't affect another person it is sin against oneself and should be left to the creator to judge them accordingly.

I think wat he's only trying to say is dat judgement should not be in our hands but in d hands of God. Besides Jesus died for d sinners n not d righteou. He gives us tym to repent of our sins not through punishments so pls he is right joor

God have mercy on us, I really wonder the direction our generation is heading to if our men of God is saying this.

Harbour?how? He didnt say its not a sin...he said they shud not criminalize or harass dem...do they jail u weneva u lie or fornicate??? dats if u do.....yet all sins but not overt crimes..so long u r not obstructing justice...but in d mean time..u shud feel bad for urself dat u didnt calm down to read n understand wat he said...and try not to condemn pipl atleast not too often...is it not clear most sins in the bible??? How many av u committed and how many times av u bn criminalised...????? Not all sins are crimes..and not all crimes are sins...u want proof???

So because God condemns it does that mean we shud lock dem up or kill dem???????? Is dat wat God wants u to do????? Dont u commit other sins??? Av u bn jailed....???? Or is d law now based on faiths and not facts??? Av d gay pipl victimised u??? Cos dats wen it becomes a crime..cos by then u wud be considered a victim wich then mks it a crime....did u study phylosophy n logic @any point??? If u did its obvious u didnt benefit.thank u.
