I don't hate you guys but to be honest the western block will start to have sex with their own mothers too, I've seen it just because there are some few people who did it and they will use that as an excuse of "legalizing" it...they will say in old culture blah blah blah it happened blah blah blah...father and his daughter blah blah blah, mother and his son blah blah blah, they should marry...and the left will go into the street after being pumped up with the media and after being washed up their brains..blah blah blah...they just fall for everything they desire, they'll start being cannibalism too just because in the old history blah blah blah then they legalize it, and they don't stop there they will need the whole world to do the same
The first time i had of homosexuality i was around 15 to 16 years and i could not believe such a thing could happen. it was unbelievable and that shows that homosexuality is not part of African cultures and am against it.
Tell me, what is the first thing that crosses your mind when you see two men walking down the street – holding hands.
Rather picture this, you walk into a bar or any other social place for that matter, its dark, but immediately you spot two ladies making out in the corner. Queer? Normal? Totally gay? Or all of the above?
Well it doesn’t matter, because we are heading into an era where we need to decide what’s ‘morally acceptable’ or not. And quick, because that’s all we’ve got. All other rational thinking has been thrown out the window.
I was at a recent debate held here in town and I left with so many unanswered questions that made me deduce that I shouldn’t have gone to the event in the first place. If there’s any one thing I dislike, it’s doubting my beliefs. The heading of the debate read ‘Sexual Minority’ and clearly I knew beforehand what was going to be discussed. What I didn’t know was what would be the supporting points to the motion.
Walking in, I found a certain professor giving a lecture on human rights. I should’ve guessed that that would be his foundation. So he tells us, the crowd, that every human has a right to exercise his own desires. He defines ‘sexual orientation’ as a state and practice of emotional attraction to men/women, and classifies four types of orientation: Bisexual, Heterosexual, Homosexual, Asexual.
The last one means ‘having no sexual desires’ just in case you didn’t know. So he continues and says that whatever sexual orientation you have, it is natural to you.
That it should not be a reason to discriminate against another group because it is not their choice to be what they are, it is just the way they were born. Hmmm…interesting…
My brain is already at work here. So in a nutshell, being gay is not a choice, its a natural thing. You are born gay just like someone else is born ‘normal’.
Does that make sense to you?
By now, you’ve already guessed where the conversation is headed. Give gay people their rights from marriage to even parenting responsibilities. But I look around and I see faces of indecision, caught between acceptance and a little doubt. As Africans, does the ‘culture’ and ’standard’ we live in permit us to accommodate such behavior?
The good professor says that homophobeshide behind the skirts of culture and religion to defend their thinking. They are hypocrites because they have defined people like murders, rapists and even pedophiles in society, but not ‘homosexuals’. All these semantics can be really confusing but at the end of the day, its really how you perceive the situation.
They say that sexuality is like a pendulum. It can swing in any way, either front or backwards. At one point, everybody’s got a ‘little gay’ in them. Don’t frown at me, frown at the individual who came up with the theory! The lesson being; we should never judge others too harshly because you can wake up one day and find that your sexuality has swung the other way, so to speak. Your friend, partner, mother, father, uncle, child can be a victim at any one time. How will you react to it then?
At the same panel, there is a pastor and I couldn’t help but think that this whole motion was planned to the last detail. ‘Mr. Pastor, obviously a religious leader, supports homosexuality by saying that when on earth, Jesus freely welcomed ‘vulnerables’ like children, women, the poor and sick, who were looked down on by society, into his abode. So he would definitely welcome gays and such like ‘vulnerables’ in his presence. Because he had such a big heart and respected all types of people. Wow! If only I could sample your opinions on that! For all bible readers, the Holy book clearly outlines its stand on homosexuality.
We should never try and impose our ideas and try to twist teachings on the same. Jesus never sat down with homosexuals. I wish he would have quoted another scripture like ‘love your neighbor as you love yourself’ or ‘love one another’. But I always believe that everyone is entitled to their own opinions no matter how absurd they are.
In our quest to reject all types of discrimination are we losing our grip on what is morally right? On religion? Or are we paving way to new types of thinking and ‘freeing’ ourselves from the ’slavery’ of culture?
Anonymous Nameless do you want to turn a moral wrong into a civil right ? are you from the family of gays? - the world is so fucked up with many things, better trying to make it right rather than adding more problems - violation to the law of nature doesn't make it right!
If Am An African President And One Of These Stupid Media Idiots Were To Be Asked Me About This Nonsense Gay BS. I'll simply Say, "That is Their "PERSONAL" Sexual Preference, And Their "PERSONAL" Sexual Preference Has No Dominance Over Economic And Political Matters, Which is Undoubtedly More Critical Especially At This Time... Thus, I don't Believe, I As A Leader Should Focus My Time Or Energy Towards Anyone's Sexuality/Personal Sexual Preference. If I May Add, Sexuality Or Who You Chose To Have Sex With Should Not Be Put/Flashed In Any/Everybody's Face Or Turned Into Everybody's Problem. I believe Sex/Sexuality Should Be A Private Business, I think That's The Way it's Designed/Supposed To Be. Besides, Sexuality Or Sexual Orientation/ Preference Have Not Been A Thing Of Public Discussion Until Now, And it Also hasn't Been A Problem And I Don't Intend To Make It A Problem" Thank You. Next Question.
Mad woman,, she dares to say to him , that he is going to get in trouble!? This fag hag has just divorced her husband! It wouldn’t surprise me is she has become lesbian! In a world full of unending wars, terrorism, poverty and racism, she is more concerned with pushing the agenda of decadent homosexuals ! Not in Africa amanpour , not in beautiful black Africa!
Thembelani Nqabeni Its mostly popular in the Western Society. Not a single african country has endorced the Gay propaganda only the Western Media is trying to tell us Homosexuality isn't a mental disorder.
It is not acceptable, there are so many humans on this planet that agree with this than you can ever imagine. CNN has no basis in reality, you represent such a puny minuscule public perception that agrees with LGBTQ rights, and the truth is, it is unacceptable virtually everywhere in the world, and there is nothing you can do about it, YOU ARE NOT GOING TO FORCE PEOPLE TO VIOLATE THIER MORALS. WE ALREADY HAVE LAWS IN THE BOOKS THAT ENFORCE AGAINST SEXUAL HARRASSMENT, BULLYING, ET CETERA, STOP IDENTIFYING PEOPLE BY WHAT THEY PREFER TO DO IN THE BEDROOM, WE DONT GIVE A SHIT. GET THE FUCK OFF OF YOUTUBE. WE ARE SICK OF THE PITTY PARTY. GET OVER IT YOU AINT SPECIAL.
If Kenya wants to hold back the world in the process of stopping discrimination we should just let them? No. They are wrong and should be combated. Anyone who has the power to change this and doesn’t is part of the problem.
Sodomy is a crime biblically and should be one culturally even if a man does it to a woman with her consent it is still dirty gross and should be illegal like it always was until only a few years ago. If you commit sodomy and anyone that’s a crime it’s filthy it creates diseases, it makes people sick and gives them infections. Is a public health issue that’s why it’s biblically illegal
CNN must understand if he decides to enforce such a law prematurely in a place like Kenya the backlash might result in the killing of people who otherwise would have been alive if such a step wasn't taken in the first place in the country's were it is legal it has had enough support and in most cases was voted by the people to give more rights to this matter this doesn't mean they don't exist in Kenya ofcours they do it's just the Kenyan mindset needs time to come to terms with issue
Congratulations to you Mr President. It is only but fair for a man to utilise the natural use of a woman. This is our tradition and customs, this is our Christian morals and beliefs. Well done for defending the Kenyan culture over what the west would love to impose over us.
Gay rights are not important in Kenya, PERIOD!
You had the president.
I salute you Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta, your Excellency Mr President.
We have more problems in Kenya than girls kissing girls or boys kissing boys.. National Youth service money has been stolen several times and nothing is done, innocent people being arrested, people die of hunger, people are homeless, street children on the streets of Nairobi so unattended, county money being pocketed. So being gay or lesbian is not an issue. For I support the LGBT community to the grave.
Obama was against gay Marriage back in 2008. Obviously, he changed his position after the public opinion has changed. He is basically trying to tell her Kenyans are not ready to come out in public and support gay right at this moment.
Am greatful for our president,thats a non-issue,Americans must get it from us,we are not your colonial toddlers any more,Stop making yourself gods,you cant be,go to History and remember what Mugambe told the UN,Africa is rising beyond self proclaimed teachers and rulers,why do you force it,its because it is...............you know it.Cudos mr President
America and Europe should stop shoving their disgusting and repugnant beliefs to other countries. They are the ones who glorified these mentally ill queers to the point that being homosexual today is some sort of badge of courage and valor. Fucking travesty.
Guys we literally have government based conflicts, unstable economy, a chronic food aid dependency, corrupted political, leaders - oppositions & funded terrorist groups in East Africa, yet this western journalist is talking about
" gay right" MF get your priorities straight. East Africa needs to build a strong economy,education & work opportunities.
And instead East Africans going to the Middle East for work because of the lack of economic opportunities in East Africa. My goodness what is wrong with western society, this unending propaganda is really getting on my nerves.
This is what happens when Africans don't bother to invest & control the news/ media industry western society will push what ever propaganda that suits them.
The gays ,lesbians ,abortions topics are satan and his demons agenda that works in the USA evil society ,but not in the rest of the world.
JESUS CHRIST created men and women anything outside of that come from satan and his demons who twists people's mind.
Read the HOLY BIBLE IN ROMANS 2 explain how gays become gays.
IN JOHN 3;16 explains how we get save and restore to normally.
IN REVELATION 20;10 explain where we are going when we die.
Kenya had it's first gay pride and 600 people came out for the event. That's 600 people in 2018. Africa has to stop saying it's a western issue. It's not a western issue it exist in Africa. To say it doesn't is truly ignorant to the 600 people who came to that event and those who fear for there life and many who seek aslyum number in the hundreds.
