International group urges world leaders to reject same-sex marriage

The International Organization for the Family (IOF) has urged religious, political, social, and civic leaders across the world not to yield to external pressures on same-sex marriage.

This appeal is contained in a statement issued by participants at the just concluded meeting of the organisation held in Cape Town, South Africa.

The statement tagged “Cape Town Declaration” reaffirmed the critical role of traditional man-woman marriage as the bedrock of civilisation.

According to the statement, ‘the family is the “first and primordial community” and that marriage is “the conjugal bond of man and woman.

“This definition is not a matter of preference or temperament or taste,” the signers declared, but “the heart of any just social order.”

“Throwing down the gauntlet to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and trangender (LGBT) lobby, a thriving culture will firmly resist every push to redefine marriage to include: same-sex or group bonds, or sexually open or temporary ones.’’

The document also declared that the nature of marriage as between one man and one woman is “a truth that no government can change”.

It said that the declaration was a historic step in the global fight to preserve the truth about marriage.

It said forcing the agenda of same-sex marriage on nations by manipulation of foreign aid or the likes was a deplorable practice.

Those that signed the declaration pledged to work toward recovering the true understanding of marriage in places where governments had imposed an unwanted and unwarranted distortion of marriage upon society, it said.

“Beyond affixing their names to the document, signers also pledged to resist the rising cultural imperialism of western powers whose governments seek nothing less than the ideological colonization of the family.

“Bowing to no earthly power, using every just measure, we shall not falter or flag until the truth about marriage is embraced in our laws and honoured in our lands,’’ the document stated.

“The new text is reminiscent of the 2009 Manhattan Declaration, which garnered some 440,000 signatures in its first year.

“While the Manhattan Declaration targeted three points: the sanctity of life, the dignity of marriage and freedom of religion, the Cape-Town Declaration chose to focus specifically on marriage and the family.

“Our goal is to gain 2 million signatures on the Cape-Town Declaration within a year from today: December 11, the Universal Day of Human Rights,” the statement said.

This statement was released on Dec.10, the International Human Rights Day, to mark the anniversary of the proclamation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) by the United Nations General Assembly held in Paris on December 10, 1948.

Brian Brown, President of IOF, Emmanuel Badejo, Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Oyo, Nigeria, as well as hundreds of other religious, political, social and civic leaders from other continents appended their signatures to the document .

Lil Wayne Officiated Same-Sex Wedding While In Jail

In Gone ’Til November, which covers his stint in New York’s Rikers Island , the rapper says that the union was toasted with 13 bottles of Gatorade

Lil Wayne writes that during his 2010 jail stint in New York’s Rikers Island, he officiated a same-sex wedding – and also learned his girlfriend had slept with fellow rapper Drake.

The revelations are featured in Wayne’s upcoming memoir Gone ‘Til November, which recounts his time spent serving his eight-month sentence stemming from gun charges, Page Six reports.

Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Carter Jr, describes in the book marrying off two male inmates. Inmates decorated the hall with toilet tissue and toasted to the union with 13 bottles of Gatorade.

“Gatorade is liquid gold in this bitch,” he writes in the handwritten journal. “Imagine seeing grown-ass men in jail hanging tissue for wedding decorations. AND one of them is Lil Wayne. Crazy.”

As for his girlfriend’s infidelity with Drake, Wayne writes: “Finding out that she fucked Drake was the absolute worst thing I could have found out. Drizzy came to see me, he was like, ‘Yeah, it’s true’. Damn! This is the type of shit a man never wants to find out while he is locked up.”

Elsewhere in book, Wayne describes visits from P Diddy and Kanye West, plus a girlfriend he asked to show up without wearing underwear (“to do a Basic Instinct”). His plans were thwarted, however.

“They have extensive-ass searches before you come in here, so they made her put on a pair of boxers because they knew she didn’t have on panties,” writes Wayne. “Damn!”

Wayne was arrested in July 2007 when a loaded .40-calibre semi-automatic gun was found on his tour bus. He released his eighth album I Am Not a Human Beingduring his incarceration; that album’s follow-up, The Carter IV, came out in 2011.

Gone ’Til November is out 11 October.

IVF Kids Raised By Britain’s First Gay Couple Reveal How They Live Large

The IVF kids raised by Britain’s first gay dads have revealed their lavish upbringing filled with supercars, huge parties and mansion homes. Millionaire couple Tony and Barrie Drewitt-Barlow made history in 1999 after fathering twins Saffron and Aspen with a surrogate mum in California.

Now, 16 years on, the IVF twins have opened up on their very modern upbringing.

Aspen told the Mail on Sunday how he was given a £110,000 Porsche and a custom-made Rolex by his super-rich parents.

He added: “Dad and Daddy have been incredible fathers. Dad and Daddy say their greatest achievement is having us and I’m proud of them as it wasn’t always easy, although they have shielded us from any negativity. Like all parents they can also be a bit embarrassing at times.

“Daddy is very flamboyant. During school sports days he starts screaming and shouting, making himself the centre of attention. He’s just so gay all the time. “Sometimes it makes me cringe but I love him for it too.”

The family, who have an estimated £38 million fortune, have just moved into a £1.2 million mansion in Princeton, New Jersey.

Barrie and Tony said they moved because their luxurious way of life was rubbing neighbours up the wrong way and faces threats and harassment.

The pair were previously also forced to move the three eldest kids to a private school because of bullying by the parents of their classmates.

Aspen told how he has not missed a mother figure in his life and said he has a “good relationship” with his biological mum.

The pair were treated to an extravagant £24,000 party for their joint 16th birthdays where Saffron wore a $1,100 dress for the occasion. The bash included a marquee, dancefloor, top DJs, a laser show and more than 200 guests.

Aspen was gifted a £110,000 911 Carrera but sniffed at his new Rolex watch claiming it isn’t finished yet.

The kids wardrobes are packed with designers clothes and bags, and Aspen has a huge collection of trainers. But Barrie and Tony don’t think there’s anything wrong with spoiling their kids.

They said: “People say that they’re spoiled brats but every parent wants to indulge their children.”

Prince William Appears On Cover Of Leading British Gay Magazine

Prince William is featured on the cover of a leading British gay magazine, which carries his remarks condemning the bullying of LGBT people, the publication announced Wednesday.

The Attitude magazine article marks the first time a British royal has been photographed for the cover of a gay publication, the magazine said in a statement.
The cover line — “No one should be bullied for their sexuality or any other reason” — came about after the Duke of Cambridge invited the publication to bring LGBT people to Kensington Palace to share their experiences on bullying, the statement said.
The magazine’s editor, Matthew Todd, facilitated the discussion, during which participants spoke about the struggles they’ve dealt with, including suicide attempts, depression, drug addiction and eating disorders. The Prince then posed for the cover, shot by photographer Leigh Keily.
“No one should be bullied for their sexuality or any other reason and no one should have to put up with the kind of hate that these young people have endured in their lives,” Prince William said in a statement.
“The young gay, lesbian and transgender individuals I met through Attitude are truly brave to speak out and to give hope to people who are going through terrible bullying right now. Their sense of strength and optimism should give us all encouragement to stand up to bullying wherever we see it,” he added.
Todd, the magazine’s editor, said he met parents who had lost their children to suicide after being bullied for their sexuality.
“I am very happy that the future King of the United Kingdom agrees this must stop and I would urge parents in particular to raise their voices in their communities to ensure that every school protects — really protects — all children.”
A Kensington Palace spokesman said: “The Duke of Cambridge is working hard to support the fight against bullying and to help break the stigma around mental health. He has established a taskforce on the prevention of cyberbullying and along with the Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry is leading the Heads Together campaign on mental health and wellbeing.”
The news was announced the day after the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge signed a condolence book at the U.S. Embassy in London for victims of the terror attack on a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida.
Founded in 1994, Attitude bills itself as the UK’s best-selling gay magazine, and has previously featured celebrities on its cover including Daniel Radcliffe, David Beckham, Lady Gaga and James Franco.

Despite 50 Killed At Orlando Gay Club, Many Still Flood LGBT Pride Event

Following the carnage that unfolded at the Pulse nightclub in which 50 clubbers lost their lives, thousands of Americans poured into the streets of West Hollywood to take part in an LGBTQ pride event.

19-year-old singer Hailee Steinfeld led the charge of celebs who made sure to still attend Pride events across the country despite a mass shooting targeting the LGBTQ community earlier that morning.

She was joined by stars including Danny DeVito, Carly Rae Jepsen and Kelly Osbourne at the LA
Pride parade in West Hollywood, California,on Sunday.

Dedicating her performance to the 50 dead and 53 injured in the Orlando, Florida, gay nightclub shooting, the teen danced and sung her heart out.

The teen wrote on Twitter: ‘There is no better reminder that love conquers all than joining the LGBTQ community at LA Pride tonight.

‘I could have danced all night in celebration of our freedom and equality. In memory of the victims this weekend, we stand with you and your families.’

Karrueche Tran’s New Makeup Line Angers Gays and Transgenders

Karrueche Tran recently launched her new makeup line in collaboration with ColourPop cosmetics.

The new makeup line, called KaePop, features liquid makeup in shades and pigments targeted toward Asian, Hispanic and light skinned women.

While Karrueche’s KaePop makeup line totally ignores 100% black women, it’s the transgenders who are coming for her neck on

Karrueche angered her transgender followers by including handwritten “notes of love” with every KaePop purchase. The gays and transgender community are upset that Karrueche’s notes of love did not include them.

The notes read:

“For the beautiful, independent, free-spirited girl. Let your light shine bright! With love, #KaePop Karrueche Tran.”

Less than 5% of Karrueche’s followers are black, but over 50% of her IG followers are LGBT. And they are letting her have it for not knowing that boys and cross-dressing men wear makeup too.

What do you think? Are the gays and transgenders right to come for Karrueche? Kikikikiki…..

Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore Orders Ban On Same-Sex Marriage

Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore issued an order Wednesday informing the state’s probate judges of their “ministerial duty not to issue any marriage license contrary” to Alabama’s constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage.
Despite the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2015 decision overturning such state bans, Moore maintains Alabama’s law is still valid, and that as chief justice he is empowered to “take affirmative and appropriate action to correct or alleviate any condition or situation adversely affecting the administration of justice within the state.”

Same-Sex Marriage Is Now Legal In Ireland

Same-sex marriage is now legal in the Republic of Ireland, after legislation passed by referendum in May came into effect Monday.

The Irish state became the first in the world to legalize same-sex marriage by popular vote when the Marriage Act 2015 was passed, reports the BBC.

Same-sex couples who have been wed abroad will now be legally recognized by the state, while gay and lesbian couples who want to marry will be able to do so. People already in civil partnerships can now choose to wed as well. The law will not affect the legal status of existing civil partners who do not want to get married.

More than 62% voted in favor of same-sex marriage during the May 23 referendum.

See What Bishop T. D Jakes Has to Say About Christian Gays And Bisexuals

Bishop T.D. Jakes thinks it is “absolutely” possible for the Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals and Transgender communities to coexist in harmony with the church.

Jakes, who joined HuffPost Live on Monday, opened up to host Marc Lamont-Hill about his thoughts on the relationship between these communities.
See what he said below:

“I think that it’s going to diverse from church to church every church has a different opinion on the issue and every gay person is different,” Jakes said.

While Jakes believes churches are allowed to practice and preach values shared by their respective leaders, he also advocates that LGBT people attend a church that aligns with their own beliefs and values. And although he admits that his individual stance on homosexuality is both “evolved and evolving,” he says all LGBT people should be treated with tolerance and respect.

“LGBT’s of different types and sorts have to find a place of worship that reflects what your views are and what you believe like anyone else,” he said. “And the church should have it’s own convictions and values.”

Jakes also reaffirmed that members of the LGBT community, like all american citizens, deserve equal protection under the law.

“Once you begin to understand that democracy, that a republic actually, is designed to be an overarching system to protect our unique nuances then we no longer look to public policy to reflect biblical ethics,” Jakes said

“I Would Rather Burn In Hell Than Worship A Monster Called God” – Stephanie Rose

Nigerian transgender Stephanie Rose, is full of hatred for the Lord our God and is coming out again to insult him and call him a monster.

Stephanie, who was born a man named Dapo Adaralegbe, was expelled from the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ife, where she was studying Law due to her homosexuality. She later underwent surgery to become a woman.

In her latest rant, she has taken to her Facebook page to share a post by an avowed atheist, Amenhotep Kingsagreed, where she thinks that God is the devil himself.

Follow the jump to see what she says about God and why she believes God is the devil as she quotes from the Bible. (This is one of those times you’ll see why our people say “even devil know Bible pass any man”). See her Biblical claims after the CUT:

“I’m amazed that people who claim to read and worship the words of the bible tend to be so ignorant about just what the bible says. I wonder how many of them know that god is quoted many times in the bible admitting that he is in fact evil. I will list those passages below.
Isaiah 45:7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.
Exodus 32:14 And the LORD repented of the evil which he thought to do unto his people.
Joshua 23:15 Therefore it shall come to pass, that as all good things are come upon you, which the LORD your God promised you; so shall the LORD bring upon you all evil things.
Judges 9:23 Then God sent an evil spirit
1 Samuel 16:14 But the Spirit of the LORD departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from the LORD troubled him.
2 Samuel 12:11 Thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will raise up evil against thee out of thine own house
1 Kings 9:9 …therefore hath the LORD brought upon them all this evil.
1 Kings 14:10 Therefore, behold, I will bring evil upon the house of Jeroboam
2 Kings 6:33 …Behold, this evil is of the LORD;
2 Kings 21:12 Therefore thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Behold, I am bringing such evil upon Jerusalem and Judah, that whosoever heareth of it, both his ears shall tingle.
2 Kings 22:16 Thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will bring evil upon this place
Nehemiah 13:18 Did not your fathers thus, and did not our God bring all this evil upon us, and upon this city?
Jeremiah 4:6 Set up the standard toward Zion: retire, stay not: for I will bring evil from the north, and a great destruction.
Jeremiah 6:19 Hear, O earth: behold, I will bring evil upon this people
Jeremiah 11:11 Therefore thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will bring evil upon them
Jeremiah 25:29 For, lo, I begin to bring evil
Jeremiah 35:17 Therefore thus saith the LORD God of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will bring upon Judah and upon all the inhabitants of Jerusalem all the evil that I have pronounced against them:
Jeremiah 44:2 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Ye have seen all the evil that I have brought upon Jerusalem, and upon all the cities of Judah
Jeremiah 45:5 …behold, I will bring evil upon all flesh, saith the LORD
Jeremiah 49:37 …I will bring evil upon them, even my fierce anger, saith the LORD; and I will send the sword after them, till I have consumed them
Micah 1:12 …. evil came down from the LORD
Micah 2:3 Therefore thus saith the LORD; Behold, against this family do I devise an evil
So as you can see, Jehovah god admits that it is he that does all evil, not some “fallen angel” who gets the blame.
The reason Satan gets the blame is solely so that the Christians can convince themselves that it’s not god doing it. But if you claim that god is not capable of committing evil acts then you are “giving false witness” and committing “blasphemy” against god and his character.
Now I ask you, why do you feel that this “god” is deserving of worship? Even if you believe that he does exist, after all he has done and all he admits, why would you want to devote your life to him? Of all the men who have lived not one of them can come close to the evil that this god is. No one has caused as much death and destruction that this god claims to have done.
It’s funny, the relationship that people have with this god reminds me of battered wife syndrome. He’ll beat you into submission, threaten you with terrible punishments if you don’t comply, convince you that you deserve that horrible treatment because your bad deep inside, then tell you he only does it because he loves you. Actually it’s not funny after all. It’s pretty damn sad.
Which ‘other uncontrollable devil’ is humanity searching for when the creator and inventor of evil has declared itself? The position of evil can not be checked because the same God is the creator and inventor of all evil.
Evil started from the same hopeless and foolish God because such useless and senseless God is evil. They do not go to Heaven and they do not go to Hell fire, the same God is the exact devil that deceived all religions about an untrue Heaven and untrue Hell fire!
Hell fire is a fallacy of imagination. NO BODY GOES TO HELL FIRE.”

Rose also has a book she has written titled: “NO BODY GOES TO HEAVEN BECAUSE NO BODY GOES TO HELL FIRE”.

Church General Overseer Converts To Islam In Ekiti And Gives Reasons

Says strange man in dreams convinced him to do so

In Nigeria, particularly among the Yoruba tribe where religious tolerance is most noticed, it is a regular occur­rence to see muslims convert to Christianity. Hardly do we see a Christian turn to Islam. However, a man, former Pastor Adekunle Afolabi, founder and leader of Apata Adu­ra Cherubim and Seraphim Church, Ekute, Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State, broke that jinx recently. He converted fully to Islam after practising Christianity for over 25 years and even ris­en to become the General Overseer of his church, which have branches across Ekiti State.

Now known and addressed as Alfa Abubakar Afolabi, the 45-year-old man attributed his conversion to a divine encounter he had with a strange man in white in his dreams who showed him certain flaws
in Christianity and convinced him that indeed Islam is the only religion that leads to heaven.

In this interview with WOLE BALOGUN at his Ekute, Ado Ekiti residence, Alfa Abubakar spoke extensively on his experience. Excerpts:

How did your journey to Islam begin?

I am former Pastor Adekunle Afolabi, General Overseer and founder of Apata Adura Cherubim and Seraphim in Ekute, Ado-Ekiti, I have been a believer in Christianity for 25 years. I have been tutored at the Deeper Life Bible Church school in Ayobo, Lagos and my parents were attending the Assemblies of God Church. I later left the church to set up a C &S church where I became a Shepherd because God always reveals things to me either by vision or by dreams and to be candid, God re­veals things to me and when God wants to make a confirmation of them, they always come to pass.

The spiritual gift has enhanced my career as a cleric in Christianity such that my church grew so fast that by the time we were celebrating fifth anniversary, the church has had branches across the state and over 150 members attended my headquarters in Ekute alone. I have also become the state chair­man of the association of our church unification in Ado.

I was preparing for the anniversary when I started hav­ing dreams that eventually led to my conversion. At first in the dreams, I noticed my members were sitting on the floor in the church and some of them were covering their heads. I also saw that people were washing their hands and feet before entering the church just like it is done in Islam.

In my canal thinking, I thought God wanted us to be wash­ing our hands and feet before entering the church and I instruct­ed my members to be doing so, some did, while others didn’t.

I remembered when I was living in Ikere, around 1986, I used to attend a church then called the Church of Iya Olomi (Woman of holy water) in Ikere. There was an earthen pot in the church where we washed our legs before attending the church so I was thinking that may be that is what God wanted me to do. I went to buy an earthen pot in Ijebu and put it at the back of the church but something strange happened the day I did that, a heavy rain fell and erosion poured sand into the earthen pot that was filled with water and all the perfume and spiritual arrange­ment I put inside the water was spoilt. Then, I went to clean the pot and put another clean water again. To my surprise, when I was coming home I met little children at the earthen pot fetch­ing water from it like a well. So, to avoid trouble in the neigh­bourhood, I dug out the earthen pot and made up my mind that it seems God is against what am doing.

In another of my dream, I saw women in Hijab in the church, so on one Sunday I informed my congregation that at the forth­coming anniversary, all women should come with hijab. Only 10 people adhered to the instruction during that period but I was yet to be converted.

After that, certain strange things began to happen in my dreams, I would notice that someone comes to me, wakes me up and then take me on a journey to somewhere, there the man will ask a question: he said do I know if the way I was taking in life is the right one?,I told him, yes since I do pray to God and he answers me. But he asked me again that what makes me believe I was right and I told him that since I can pray to God and he answers me. He asked me again that do I believe that God could write Quran in Arabic to people for them to know his teachings, I said to him I don’t know but knew that some people use Arabic as language. He then called my attention to my left hand, there he told me to open my palm which I did and he asked if I knew that the first line in my left hand stands for eight and the second stands for one which go for 81. He added that on my right hand, the first line stands for one in Arabic and the other stands for eight and that if these are added together, they are equal to 99 which stands for the ninety nine names of Allah. He said this means that Allah wrote his name on the palms of all human beings in Arabic.

I was baffled because I never had any knowledge in the Quran, so I decided to go and research on it. It got to a point that my wife and I started attending the mosque together and one day, an alhaji around my neighbourhood saw me coming out of the mosque, he was so surprised and challenged me and I told him everything that occurred to me which led me to the mosque. He told me that I must not keep this to myself so he advised me to keep walking in God’s way in Islam and stop preaching in the church but call on Imam or alfa to come and preach.

Eventually, I ended up inviting an Imam, a muslim cleric to preach in my church during our fifth anniversary last year. The church members were surprised as the Imam preached.

After the anniversary, the same man came to me in my dreams and tasked me on payment of tithe in my church, saying I should stop collecting it. So, the next Sunday I stopped collecting tithes from the congregation.

Of course, the church members were not all happy, some went to another church because they can’t continue with this type of doctrine and that was how the number of the congregation con­tinued to reduce day after day.

I nearly got fed up, but I made up my mind that I won’t go back on my decision and religion and when it got to January end­ing, I made up my mind fully to convert to Islam.

As a prophet in C and S, you would be doing some spiritual work for people, now that you are now in Islam, do you still do the works?

Rendering spiritual help is given to all men by God for their own use, so the wisdom of it is given to me by God, he didn’t take it away from me because that is different from religion. It is a way of livelihood so, if any one falls sick, wants to give birth, is having stillbirth, stagnation at work, that is all what we use that for. He showed me places in the Bible where many prayed to God in Islamic way. By this praying, I mean to kneel down and bow down your head and face down.

How have your wife, relatives, friends and in-laws reacted to your newfound faith?

They have always known me to be truthful with whatever I’m doing and they respect me for that and also respect my decision, so there hasn’t been any cause for alarm.

The only person who at a time opposed it was my wife be­cause she was a Christian when I married her. She said she would quit the marriage and I said it is okay and that I don’t want to die a Christian but would rather die a Muslim. But after a while, she discovered that we haven’t been worshipping any idol, that we have always been worshipping God. She came back and ac­cepted me this way. Also, my children are supporting me and have joined me.

What about those who were your colleagues when you were in Christianity as a church leader?

They all left me the day I invited an Imam to come and preach in my church. That day of our anniversary. I have also been re­lieved of my position as president of our association. The only thing the pastors do once in a while is to call to ask me if indeed I still want to continue in the new faith and I usually confirm it. As for friends, some have stayed while others have left.

Have you now become a leader in Islamic faith?

No, I am still learning to be deeper in Islam. I had over 150 members in the church before but they have all left now. My church before has now been converted to a mosque and it is be­ing attended by many muslims now that I cannot even count them. An Imam is currently running the mosque while I am also there as an Alfa, learning more about the religion.

How many wives have you now?

The Bible does not oppose marrying more than one wife. It says if you want to marry another wife, you must ensure that you treat her the same way you are treating the ones or one you have already married. The Bible only says that for those who want to become Bishops, they should marry only one.

Now you have only one wife, is it likely that you will marry another wife?

No. I have married some women before. Now, I cannot marry another woman.That is not in my plans. My first born is about 22 years old.

You know that there is this common opinion that religion does not really matter, whether you are a Christian, Muslim or traditionalist, your relation­ship with God matters most in getting to heaven, what is your view on this saying?

All I can say is that anyone who wants to go to heaven should just accept Islam peacefully. Islam to me now, is the only way to God. No other way.

You have spoken against collecting tithes, and said you have stopped collecting tithes from your members, are you concerned that you may not get money to run the mosque since that is a major way to get money?

All I can say about that is that God’s words advise that when we have, we should be grateful and also when we do not. Before I stopped collecting tithes, I have members who usually give me about N20 000 or N10 000 but I still have to stop collecting it in obedience to God. Now, I don’t collect tithe from anyone but Islam permits people to do saka, which is just a voluntary attitude to contribute to someone’s or an alfa’ or just extend mercy or what we call Sadaka.

Kemi Omololu-Olunloyo Urges Nigerian Government To Repeal Anti-Gay Law

Below is a press statement sent out by her;

Kemi Omololu-Olunloyo a US trained Nigerian International Journalist, Global Gun Violence Activist, Pharmacist and Public Relations Specialist has denounced the ongoing onslaught of the Nigerian Homosexual law giving stiff prison penalties to Nigerians who are just being themselves. “The Nigerian government and lawmakers have given themselves the license to represent the people stating that God does not endorse homosexuality. God also does not endorse hate, ritualism, rape, polygamy, suicide bombing girls and baby factories” she said. It is simply hatred. Asked why she never follows her fans on twitter, she blamed it on homophobia stating that she does not follow hate
and all Nigerians are “hell bent” on homophobia.

Omololu-Olunloyo also wants the government to know that President Buhari’s visit to the United States should have addressed this law and not brushed it aside with American President Obama. “America is not telling us to legalize gay marriage, they are only telling us that when you have law abiding citizens going about their own business not bothering anyone, they should not be scrutinized and stripped of their rights of being themselves.” She also tweeted on her handle @HNNAfrica that Uganda dropped their anti-gay law after four months and one day Nigeria will do the same. “It’s very costly economically for a country like ours with no jobs for youth. We can never be chosen to host the Olympics, World Cup and other global events for this reason. We can’t be a host country to anything and already our image as one of the African countries promoting such hate is tarnished.”

Omololu-Olunloyo also spoke about last week’s denouncing of homophobia by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who lashed out at the stabbing attack at an Israeli Gay Pride rally injuring teens. Netanyahu stated that he will continue to lead his cuntry against hatred and homophobia. Israel ironically is a country Nigerians flock to for their annual Christian pilgrimages. “Contrary to popular belief, God does not hate gays” she said and “does not call anyone with a generic name” as she cited a pro gay tweet by Pope Francis.

She advices Nigerian lawmakers to listen to the tough messages President Barack Obama delivered at the African Union Summit about African leaders with anti-gay laws during his trip to Kenya and Ethiopia in July 2015. Hate should never reign in Nigeria.

‘I Will Keep Attacking You For Being Gay ‘, – Ultra Orthodox Jew Who Stabbed 6 Yesterday At Jerusalem Gay Pride March

An Orthodox Jewish assailant stabbed and wounded six participants in the annual Gay Pride march in Jerusalem on Thursday, police said. Yishai Shlissel spent 10 years in jail for a similar attack a decade ago when three marchers were wounded.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu condemned ‘as a most serious incident’ what was the worst attack in years on the event in Jerusalem, a city where the religious population is more prominent than in other parts of Israel.

Marchers numbering about 5,000 and waving banners were heading down an avenue when an ultra-Orthodox man jumped into the crowd and plunged a knife into some of them, witnesses said.

Police arrested Shlissel at the scene. It is understood that Schlissel was only released from prison three weeks ago following his 2005 attack which injured three people.

We Maintain Our Stand On Homosexuality, It Is Wrong – Catholic Archbishop

The Catholic Archbishop of Abuja Diocese, Cardinal John Onaiyekan today said the position of the Catholic Church in Nigeria against homosexuality remains the same.  Onaiyekan made this statement to journalists in Makurdi during his official visit to the Diocese of Makurdi today.

“Unfortunately, we are living in a world where these things have now become quite acceptable but for the fact that they are acceptable doesn’t mean that they are right. The Catholic Church considers itself as carrying the banner of the truth in the World that has allowed itself to be so badly deceived.

“Even if people don’t like us for it, our church has always said homosexuality is unnatural and marriage is between a man and a woman. There is no such thing as marriage between two men or marriage between two women, whatever they do among themselves should not be called marriage. There is no question of the Catholic Church changing its positions on this matter,” he said.

We Will Make Benue State Uncomfortable For Homosexuals – Governor Ortom

Benue State governor, Samuel Ortom, has declared that the state government will not spare anyone caught in gay activities in the state.

Governor Ortom made the announcement yesterday at the old banquet hall of the Benue People’s house in Makurdi during a courtesy call on him by the Prelate of the Anglican Communion of Nigeria, Archbishop Nicholas Okoh.

Governor Ortom said gay lifestyle which was being promoted in the Western world was alien to the customs, lifestyles, and the belief of Africans and the church.

He prayed that what he described as a revival would spring from the state and produce evangelists that would drive evangelization in Africa and the Western world, saying the personal knowledge of the Lord Jesus was the solution to the decadence sweeping across many nations.

He commended the Anglican Communion in Nigeria for its stand on gay marriage and pledged his support.

Governor Ortom reiterated that his administration, which was anchored on the fear of God would ensure due process and zero tolerance for corruption, even as it would entrench core values that would enhance the socioeconomic wellbeing of the people.

The Governor assured the Prelate of his readiness to personally participate in the scheduled programme of the Anglican Communion taking place in the state next year and wished them well in their current conference in Zaki-Biam.

The Prelate of the Anglican Communion, Archbishop Okoh had appealed to the Governor to do everything possible to help the church fight against gay marriage in Nigeria.

He noted that Christians, animists, agnostics, and Muslims in the Country were united against such

Archbishop Okoh said they were in the Governor’s office to identify with him and invite him to their annual programme holding next year in the state and pledged that the Communion would continue to pray for the Governor to succeed in the task of governing the state.

“Even Satan Wasn’t Gay” – President Mugabe Allegedly Says

Following the legalization of gay marriage across America by the Supreme Court last week, Zimbabwean president Robert Mugabe, who is known for his extreme anti-gay views has been making headlines. Earlier this week was a marriage proposal to president Obama and yesterday, he allegedly said what you see below during another interview;

“Even satan wasn’t Gay, he chose to approach naked Eve instead of naked Adam.” – President, Mugabe on homo sexuality.

Mozambique Scraps Ban On Same- Sex Marriage!

Mozambique decriminalized homosexuality Monday when a new penal code came into force that swept away old Portuguese colonial laws, in a victory for campaigners for gay rights.

The old code, dating back to 1886, targeted anyone “who habitually engages in vices against nature” — though no known prosecutions took place after Mozambique became independent in 1975.

Breaking the law was punishable by up to three years of hard labor.

“It’s a symbolic victory, as social inclusion remains the main challenge,” Frank, a student gay rights activist who declined to give his full name, told Agence-France Presse.

The new penal code, which was announced last December by then President Armando Guebuza, also decriminalizes abortion after lobbying by civil rights organizations.

Women can now end a pregnancy until the 12th week. Extraordinary circumstances, such as rape or threats to the mother’s life, allow for the procedure until the 16th week.

The code came into force on Monday, though no official events or celebrations were scheduled to mark the occasion.

The majority of African countries outlaw homosexuality, but Mozambique has seen little anti-gay violence or social friction over the issue.

Dercio Tsandzana, an influential blogger and activist, said there had been an absence of public discussion over homosexual rights.

“The government instead abides by the external pressure put by some embassies and foreign donors,” he said.

“Most Mozambicans don’t deny homosexuality, but one can’t say either that it is accepted.“

Despite a seven-year campaign, the Mozambican government has not officially recognized Lambda, the only gay rights organization in the country.

In neighboring Zimbabwe, President Robert Mugabe is known for his crusades against homosexuality, and discrimination is widespread across the continent.

Homosexuality is punishable by death in Sudan, Nigeria and Mauritania.

Transgender Beauty Queen Set To Marry Multi-Millionaire Arab Boyfriend

A transgender beauty queen is set to marry her wealthy Arab property developer boyfriend who is splashing out £50,000 on her sex-change surgery.

Tiffany-Rose Davies, 23, was born a male called Niall, and considers herself female although she is yet to undergo gender reassignment surgery.
Her partner, who she only calls Yaser, wants to pa for her to have the surgery so he can marry her as a female.

They plan to tie the knot next year and set up a home together in Dubai after the surgery.

The businessman has been in a relationship with Miss Davies for two years after the pair met when he messaged her on Facebook.
He has spent £20,000 in that time on Miss Davies, showering her with lavish nights in hotels, champagne and clothes.
When Tiffany was still a boy
Davies says that she has found true love with her fiance. She said:

‘He’s my ideal man – tall, dark, handsome and extremely charming.

‘He has been over to see me eight times over the last two years. He has spent thousands of pounds on me and wants to marry me next year.

‘It’s a huge decision to marry him and go over there to live but I will do it.

‘I haven’t given him a definite answer yet but in my heart I know he is the one for me.’

She said:

‘I want cosmetic surgery including a boob job and work on my lips and nose.

‘I am on the waiting list for a full sex change operation on the NHS but he wants me to go private and is offering to pay the cost of the operation.

‘I didn’t ask him to pay. He offered because he sees me as a woman. I don’t think two years is too short. I think it is the norm these days actually.

‘It is fine. People get pregnant after one-night stands these days so I like to think what I am doing is old-fashioned.

‘I want to be old-fashioned. I am in love with him and see a good future with him.

‘He is doing it because he loves me and wants to do it.’

And now the pair are planning a future together and thinking about having a family.
Miss Davies explained:

‘I am smart. I am not a stupid little girl, I have thought about this a lot.

‘But he says he loves me and doesn’t want to lose me. I thought he might be a conman at first but it is the real thing, I’m sure of it.

‘We’ve never had sex – I am making him wait to prove he loves me. I want out first night together to be very special.

‘We have even been talking about having a family together in the future and adopting children.

‘He loves me for who I am but he has been funding my cosmetic treatment.

‘He has a lot of property and money from inheritance and told me he is worth £40million.’

Miss Davies, who has also worked as a model, says she was 13 when she first realised she wanted to become a girl after being bullied for having big ears.
She began experimenting with make-up and, at 16, enrolled at a college to study hairdressing.
When she was 17, she started calling herself Tiffany-Rose and has since had hormone treatment.
She added: ‘I finally feel comfortable in my own skin. I would be called a “freak” and “ugly” and names like “dumbo”. It was really upsetting. I didn’t have many friends and felt isolated.
‘I remember I chose the name Tiffany-Rose because, when I was I think 10-11, I had a doll with black hair I loved.
‘I said “I want to look like this when I am older”. Now I look just like her. It was a childish thing.
‘But then, when I hit puberty, I knew something was not right. I wanted to be a girl. I have known for all my life.

Caitlyn Jenner Spotted Teaching Lesbians, Gays And Transgenders About Happiness

The former Olympian is returning to motivational speaking and her first stop was at the Los Angeles LGBT Youth Center on Tuesday.

In these exclusive photos, Jenner is seen braving the rain with a big umbrella, while rocking a pair of figure-hugging skinny jeans, a fitted black blouse and knee-high boots as she entered the facility.

The 65-year-old star reportedly spoke to a small group of young people for an hour before taking a tour of the facility and learning more about the program.
A source told E! News: “It was a small group. They talked to Caitlyn about their experiences, what they were going through and how the Centre is helping them.”

Jenner previously admitted she decided to share her story with the world because she is eager to help people in a similar position.

She said: “I’m not doing it for money. I’m doing it to help my soul and help other people.”

Pope Francis: Church Must Find Ways of Welcoming Divorced Catholics, Gays

Pope Francis said the Catholic Church must find ways of welcoming divorced and gay Catholics as part of a yearlong debate by the church’s leadership that has already exposed a split within its ranks.

In an interview with Argentine newspaper La Nación published Sunday, the pontiff addressed the turmoil his 20-month papacy has stirred with more tradition-minded groups in the church, saying it was a “good sign” that there isn’t “hidden mumbling when there is disagreement.” The pope also announced that a reorganization of the Vatican bureaucracy won’t be completed next year and said he would add visits to both Latin America and Africa to his travel schedule next year.

The comments on gays and divorced Catholics were the pope’s first public remarks since the end of the synod, or meeting of bishops, in October on problems facing the family. That meeting of nearly 200 bishops opened discussion on a range of problems affecting Catholic families, with the goal of providing better solutions on issues such as gay unions, divorce, poverty, domestic violence and polygamy.

However, sharp disagreement emerged on the church’s approach to divorced Catholics and gays. One group of bishops called for open support of gay couples and pushed for the possibility of allowing remarried Catholics to receive communion. Currently, the church denies communion to Catholics who have remarried, unless their first marriage is annulled.

Those positions—which, according to senior Vatican clerics, enjoy the support of the pope—sparked fierce opposition from more tradition-minded bishops.

Conservative Catholics Kick Against Synod Document Welcoming Gays

A day after signaling a warmer embrace of gays and lesbians and divorced Catholics, conservative cardinals hit back strongly Tuesday (Oct. 14), with one insisting that an abrupt-face on church teaching is “not what we are saying at all.”

After Monday’s release of a document with a softer tone on issues such as “welcoming homosexuals,” American Cardinal Raymond Burke and German Cardinal Gerhard Mueller complained the media was getting a biased view of the bishops’ debate.

“It seems to me that information is being manipulated in a way that gives comment to only one theory instead of faithfully reporting the various positions expressed,” Burke said in a full-page interview published in Italian by the conservative daily, Il Foglio.

“This worries me very much because a significant number of bishops do not accept the ideas of an opening, but few (people) know that.”

In a separate interview published Tuesday, Burke told the conservative U.S. outlet Catholic World Report that the bishops “cannot accept” any changes because they are not based in Scripture or church teaching.

Monday’s mid-point report was released Monday as the the nearly 200 bishops and lay delegates to the Synod on the Family called by Pope Francis broke into discussion groups.

The summary document, presented to the media by Hungarian Cardinal Peter Erdo, immediately provoked the fury of conservatives about how he and his colleagues were interpreting the spectrum of views aired on the synod floor.

In what looked like strenuous damage control, the Rev. Federico Lombardi, the Vatican’s chief spokesman, told a packed media conference Tuesday that this was a “working document, not a final document.”

South African Cardinal Wilfrid Napier told journalists the document had been misunderstood and that’s why it had caused “such an upset” among participants because the synod had not yet ended.

“The message has gone out, it is not what we are saying at all, ” Napier said of the media coverage. “Once it is out there there’s no way of retrieving it. It is not a true position. Whatever goes out after looks like damage control.”
