Nairobi - The Catholic Church in Kenya is not ready and will not accept any law allowing homosexuality in the society, a bishop has said.
Murang’a Diocese Catholic Bishop, Rt. Rev. James Maria Wainaina condemned the recent high court ruling that allowed the registration of gay associations and unions, saying the court must consider religious beliefs.
Speaking at Mumbi grounds in Murang’a town where he led Christians to celebrate Family Day Mass, the bishop condemned homosexuals who claim they were born that way, saying that Christians should be in a position to correct and level all the wrongs.
Bishop Wainaina called on Christians not to obey body feelings but fight for what is right and embrace social values that will help in maintaining order and unity in the society.

During the mass where 272 people received the sacrament of confirmation, the bishop called on parents to name their children after saints and other Bible personalities.
Wainaina felt that every name has a meaning, saying their effects translate the social lives of children.
He specifically discouraged parents from coining English names that have no meaning as children will always like to be associated with the people they have been named after.
