As the 2019 general election draws near, Christians have been urged to mobilize against candidates with pro-same sex marriage agenda.
The Young Christian Forum In Nigeria handed down the warning yesterday in Abuja, said some candidates seeking power at all cost as part of concessions to clinching power, have a precondition that Nigeria will accept the legalization of same sex marriage.
The National President of the Forum, Reverend Hosea Adam Damut who spoke with newsmen said the agenda have been misplaced.
According to him, “We find it most irresponsible that anyone from Nigeria will accept the legalization of same sex marriage as part of concessions he will make to become President of Nigeria, this is seeking power at all cost and at any cost.
“The Young Christian Forum of Nigeria is alarmed that anyone on this earth could compromise the true African and custom of our people by giving in to Satan.
“This is worse than selling Nigeria’s birth right for a mess of pottage. This is a clear case of inviting God’s wrath on Nigerians.
“We are therefore calling on all Christians and the elected of the Most High children to be cautious and watch against the entrenchment of Sodom and Gomorrah in our land.
“We have been complacent in the past and this must be the reason why this matter degenerated to a point where an agreement has now been signed.
“Those cities were destroyed by fire and serve as a warning of the eternal fire of God’s judgment.”
He continues: “The Young Christian Forum of Nigeria is therefore calling on men and women of good faith and Nigerians of all religious persuasion to unequivocally speak against any candidate that is out to promote same sex marriage in our country.
“It is in our understanding that even Islam forbids same sex marriage and the indigenous faiths in the land have no place for same.
“Those planning to implement this in Nigeria should speak up now so that we know where they stand before it is too late.”
