Akinolan Apocalypse Now!

Mon Mar 16, 2009 at 06:31:35 PM EST
We have written much about Archbishop Peter (The Persecutor) Akinola here at Talk to Action. We have discussed his role as a fave of the IRD set, and his apparent involvement in an infamous massacre of Muslims in Nigeria -- among many other things.  

Episcopal Cafe reports that The Persecutor is back -- advocating draconian criminal penalties for anyone who enages in same sex marriage -- that is already illegal in Nigeria. The church is even busing supporters to the hearings on the proposed national legislation.  (It should be recalled that eleven Episcopal Churches in Virginia left the Episcopal Church USA and placed themselves under the authority of Archbishop Akinola.)  Episcopal Cafe has the scoop as well as the text of The Persecutor's letter (PDF), in which he declares that same sex marriage could create a "moral and social holocaust," "extincting mankind," (sic) as a result of "annihilation that will follow the wrath of God."

 Excerpts on the flip.

Conclusion:

Same sex marriage apart from being ungodly is also unscriptural, unnatural, unprofitable, unhealthy, uncultural, un-African and un-Nigerian. It is a perversion, a deviation and an aberation that is capable of engendering moral and social holocaust in this country. It is also capable of extincting mankind and as such should never be allowed to take root in Nigeria.  Outlawing it is to ensure the continued existence of this nation.  The need for doing this is urgent, compelling and imperative. The time is now.

The Most Revd. Peter J. Akinola
Archbishop Primate and Metropolitan
Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion)

In discussion of the bill, Akinola states:

The penalty for engaging in same gender marriage should be 5 years imprisonment each.

"The introduction of this bill... is one of the best things that have happened to us as a nation."

"Any society or nation that approves same sex union as an acceptable lifestyle is in an advanced stage of corruption/moral decay. This bill, therefore seeks to sheild Nigeria from the complete annihiliation that will follow the wrath of God should this practice be accepted as normal in the land."



Display:
Not to be outdone by a Nigerian primate, the Bay State's own Scott Lively was in Uganda recently, plugging the idea of forcing gay people into "reparative therapy".  Besides being a co-founder of the SPLC-monitored hate group Watchmen on the Walls, Lively is on the board of the American organization Exodus International.  Exodus exists to "bring people out" of homosexuality.  Exodus has not repudiated Lively's call for brainwashing and torture centers for Ugandan gays.  Watching American haters franchising their businesses in African countries is nauseating.  Don't they remember the sage words of Benjamin Franklin, that Bigotry Begins at Home?  I guess they're not able to flex that hate muscle here enough to satisfy the blood lust.
