Although many have shown support for the Supreme Court’s ruling, which requires all 50 states to legalize same-s*x “marriages”, President Obama has been warned he will be told to “shut up and go home” if he brings his “gay agenda” with him when he visits Kenya.
The warning came from the Evangelical Alliance of Kenya after the White House showed support for same-gender “marriages” by cloaking its image in the LGBT rainbow and the U.S. Department of Education changed their profile on their Facebook page.
Obama is due to visit the homeland of his father at the end of this month to open the sixth Global Entrepreneurship Summit, but if he starts discussing the gay agenda, he will be told in no uncertain terms to keep quiet and go back to the U.S. according to CNS News.
“It is important for us as Kenyans to know that the U.S. is not God,” evangelical Bishop Mark Kariuki was quoted by local media as saying. He added that the POTUS should not use the visit to Kenya to “talk about the gay issue,” because they did not want to hear it.
“Anybody who tries to come and preach to this country that they should allow homos*xuality, I think he’s totally lost,” said TNA lawmaker Jamleck Kamau, according to The Daily Nation. “And I would also like to add, our son from the U.S., Barack Obama, when he comes here, to simply avoid that topic completely because Kenyans will not be happy with him if he comes to bring the issue of homos*xuality in this country.”
“Liberal thoughts are being entertained in some countries under the guise of human rights,” said Justin Muturi, the speaker of the National Assembly, to an Anglican Church congregation, according to BCNN1. “We must be vigilant and guard against it. We must lead an upright society and not allow obnoxious behavior as we have a responsibility to protect our children.”
While Cecily Mbarire, one female lawmaker of the 47 in Kenya said that any foreign aid coming from groups whose goal it is to legalize same-s*x marriage should be refused by the Kenyan government, another female lawmaker, Rose Mitaru went a little further. She said that acceptance of same-gender “marriages” in Kenya would open “floodgates of evil synonymous with the biblical Sodom and Gomorrah.”
Homose*xuality is “against the plan of God,” said Deputy President William Ruto, during a church sermon in Nairobi. “God did not create man and woman so that men would marry men and women marry women,” he was quoted as saying by The Daily Nation.
“Those who want to engage in those businesses, they can do it in their countries, and they can do it wherever it is they want,” Ruto continued. “In Kenya, we will stand firm.”
When Obama visited Africa in 2013, he urged its leaders to accept same-s*x unions, but was told respectfully that his calls would be ignored by several, including the president of the Kenya Episcopal Conference, Cardinal John Njue.
“Those people who have already ruined their society… let them not become our teachers to tell us where to go,” said the Archbishop of Nairobi at the time, warning Obama and the U.S. about the harmful influence of the militant LGBT agenda on culture and society. “I think we need to act according to our own traditions and our faiths.”
“Those who believe in other things, that is their business,” said Ruto during Obama’s 2013 visit to Africa. “We believe in God,” he added, speaking at a Catholic Church.
However, Josh Earnest said on Monday, “I’m confident the president will not hesitate to make clear that the protection of basic universal human rights in Kenya is also a priority and consistent with the values that we hold dear here in the United States of America.” The White House press secretary confirmed that during his visit to Kenya, President Obama would not do as the Kenyan’s wish by avoiding the issue of gay “marriages.”
