Gospel musicians protest against homosexuality

Nyeri - Gospel musicians under auspices of Murang’a County Artists Association (MCAA) have held a peaceful demonstration in Murang’a town protesting against legalization of registration of gays association.
The MCAA termed the decision as ‘barbaric and intended to allow other satanic acts in the country in the name of rights for everyone’.
“Homosexuality is a wicked act meant to hinder procreation in the country by converting Kenya to be the next Sodom. We will not relent until the ruling is revoked,” they said.
Pastor John Kibonya of Kenya Assemblies of God (KAG) rebuked the ruling saying it would motivate the US president Barrack Obama to propagate the debate when he visits Kenya in July.

“We would like to condemn homosexuality in our country in the strongest terms possible. We don’t desire God’s wrath, as this is a way of evoking a curse from Him. President Obama should desist from homosexuality debate because Kenya is a God fearing country,” he said.
This comes after religious leaders, scholars and some legislators met at Ufungamano House early this month where they pledged to hold anti-gay demos countrywide ahead of president Obama's visit to Kenya.
Archbishop Eliud Wabukala, head of the Anglican Church in Kenya, said the Church would oppose the new legislation, which he branded “naïve.”
“The church supports the family unit and the society at large. Families can only be formed through the right family unit. Any law that goes against the family values is naïve and should not be allowed in any country,” Wabukala had said in the meeting.
