    Default What is your view on Homosexuality and Gay ....?



    This issues are gradually becoming non-ignoble in the society,I found this article about this celebrity complaining about Nigeria gay stand and progressions.



    BLOC PARTY frontman KELE OKEREKE finds it difficult to relate to his Nigerian heritage - because of the country's stance on women's rights and homosexuality.

    The openly gay singer was born in Britain (The guy with Dreadlocks), but both his parents hail from Nigeria, where homosexuality is a highly contentious issue.

    And Okereke insists the country's viewpoint on gays, as well as women's rights, makes it tough for him to feel a connection to the African nation.

    He tells Britain's Attitude magazine, "I was born in the U.K. and my parents are Nigerian. Fundamentally, I do have problems with a lot of what I perceive to be Nigerian culture. How they treat women. How they treat gays. It's a very hierarchical system where you always have to defer to your elders even if you know them to not be right. That's something I personally disagree with. I think everything should be open to discussion. To reason is part of being human.

    "Nigeria is part of my heritage. I'd like to explore it. I love African music. I love African food. I love African people when I meet them. But these things are very complicated for me personally."
    This is serious.

    Homosexuals deserve our understanding and/or pity, not condemnation. While some of them suffer from some mental malfunction, a good number of them find themselves in strange bodies - a male in a female body and vice versa. In either case, it is unfair to blame those involved. However, where a person becomes a "homo" simply because of deliberate perversion (fantasy, curiosity, group influence, etc.) he/she deserves condemnation, counselling and reintegration. I believe the society ought to form an enlightened attitude towards homosexuality rather than taking a general negative stance against it. Some of the practitioners may have no control over it.

    You may as well say the same for armed robbers, treasury looters and cultists, I do not think this argument is medically correct. I may be old and therefore old fashioned, but in my book these people are despicable. They are no better than goats. I support my nation. I hate any rights that turn human beings into animals. Soon enough they will be asking for their rights to chase each other in the market place as he-goats chase goats. Read your Bible man!

    Thanks for your reaction, kks. It is understandable and well appreciated. I always respect your opinions.

    However, let me start by observing that you seemed to have reacted as you did without reading my post carefully. I never pitched my tent with homosexuality. What I was saying is that in our haste to condemn it, we might not be fair to some practitioners who need trans-sexual operations because they have been trapped in the wrong body, and those who are suffering from some mental problems. It is this category that I pleaded an understanding for. I mentioned clearly that those engaged in homosexual acts out of deliberate and voluntary perversion are the ones to condemn.

    Maybe a short story of my experience in my younger days could throw some light here. There was this friend and colleague of mine whom everybody considered an eccentric. He was always talking of his "boy friend", a Greek national who was working in Nigeria then. The idea of homosexualism was very strange to me then. This boy was always in the habit of despising women. To the glory of God, by our not ostracising him, and by our constant counselling, he started making friends with women. After some time, he had stopped talking about "boy friends". Now, he is happily married to a woman, and blessed with beautiful children. If we had all shunned and avoided him at that time, that boy might have degenerated in mental functioning and God knows what he would be today.

    It is pertinent also to do a search on the Net for trans-sexuality and people trapped in the wrong bodies. You would get my point of view better.

    As for the advice to read my Bible, I have often done so despite my being a Muslim. One of the Ten Commandments therein says: Thou shall not judge. Only God knows what is hidden, and only He knows why some people behave the way they do. That is why we should refrain from judging others harshly. Everyone of us has his/her own "condemnable" trait. May God continue to overlook our trespasses.

    Furthermore, you likened my opinion to that of condoning armed robbery, cultism and treasury looting. No. Most of these ones fall under what I called voluntary and deliberate acts of perversion, and hence, despicable and condemnable. Even at that, I do not subscribe to capital punishment for those heinous crimes as some people are wont to do. Prison sentences, which offer them a second chance of repentance and reformation, are adequate and appropriate. A case in point in Nigeria is Kayode Williams, a norious armed robber who has since turned an evangelist, spreading the words of God in prisons and elsewhere. That sort of things probably informed most civilized countries to abolish capital punishments.

    Hope I have made something clearer here. God bless!

    I am happy I have drawn out more from you than you were willing to write before. I think it is the essence of being a good member of this forum. Some of us understand each other very well without ever seeing each other, but you click to a person by just one post. Then on, you know that his response is worth while or not. I love to read your opinions because they always convey a thoughtful mind. So when you are deliberately ambiguous, one has to draw you out.
    I never fight nature or despise what has been made by a Superior being, which I know fully well I can do nothing about. But I hate ingratitude in any form particularly to the Creator who perfected everything for man before creating him. I feel you now also understand. Keep posting Brother.

    What are you guys saying 'Don't be ignorant and religious brainwashed,I will never stop saying my own too,I DONT BELIEVE IN ANY RTELIGION CRAP. Science (Proofs and Reasonings) are my stay.Meanwhile to the topic at hand ,be it known to you that "Homosexuality is Inborn”.

    (a) Neurobiologist Simon LeVay’s 1991 Study on the Brains of 41 Cadavers. The cadavers consisted of nineteen allegedly homosexual men, sixteen allegedly heterosexual men, and six allegedly heterosexual women. He reported that a cluster of neurons in a distinct section of the brain (called the interstitial nuclei of the anterior hypothalamus, or the INAH3) were generally smaller in the homosexual men as compared to the heterosexual men. As a result, he hypothesized that the size of these neurons may cause a person to be either heterosexual or homosexual. [ Simon LeVay’s findings were published as “A Difference in Hypothalamic Structure Between Heterosexual and Homosexual Men,” Science, August 30, 1991, 1034-1037.]

    (b) J. Michael Bailey and Richard Pillard’s 1991 Study of Twins. Bailey and Pillard investigated how widespread homosexuality is among identical twins (whose genetic makeup are the same) and fraternal twins (whose genetic ties are less close). Among other things, they discovered that 52% of the identical twins studied were both homosexual. Bailey and Pillard hypothesized that the higher incidence of homosexuality among the identical twins implies that homosexuality is genetic in origin.

    So,In an essense ,IT IS GOD GIVEN (Endowed). and they should not be blamed.

    My own stand is the stand of the Uganda Parliaments some months ago.

    Uganda considers death sentence for gay sex in bill before parliament

    • Minimum penalty is life in jail, under anti-homosexuality bill


    Life imprisonment is the minimum punishment for anyone convicted of having gay sex, under an anti-homosexuality bill currently before Uganda's parliament. If the accused person is HIV positive or a serial offender, or a "person of authority" over the other partner, or if the "victim" is under 18, a conviction will result in the death penalty.

    Members of the public are obliged to report any homosexual activity to police with 24 hours or risk up to three years in jail – a scenario that human rights campaigners say will result in a witchhunt. Ugandans breaking the new law abroad will be subject to extradition requests.

    If Nigeria Senators do not pass such bills,very soon ,we will have gay President.

    The World is large enough for all kinds Kontis. The problem is the grave. Always a tight fit. When you have no plan B there, KA GAMA YAWO.(end-of-d-road).

    Hey! We need to watch it. There is no justification for this sexual perversion. Let's call a spade a spade, what is bad is bad.
    Hear what the holy book says:" Furthermore, since they did not think it worth while to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done." Romans 1:28
    This is one of the signs of the end time. This practice was in existence during the time of Sodom and Gomorrah, God destroyed the whole nation and people involved. I hereby encourage those involved to change.
