The Primate of the Anglican Church of Nigeria, Nicholas Okoh, has condemned homosexuality and gay marriage, saying they are evil and works of the devil that must not be allowed to exist in Nigerian society.
Okoh spoke recently during a service and the ordination of three Anglican Bishops saying: ‘You are already aware of the evil wind blowing across the Western world, by way of the homosexual agenda.
‘They want to push it down everybody’s throat. And as far as they are concerned, it is a matter of human right. But God’s right is not discussed.
‘I want to say that you have a responsibility to this church, not to allow any influence from any quarters to corrupt our church’.
‘The Biblical understanding of marriage will continue to be the basis of our teaching; we will not change that position. So… please, resist the devil and all his works, and he will flee from you.
‘I want to encourage our clergy, particularly those of you who have attachment with the United Kingdom and other parts of Europe and America, don’t bring that influence in here’.
‘The basics of Jesus Christ will continue to be our teachings and we will not depart from it….The basics of Christian marriage is between man and woman’.
