Nigerian Christian Group Threatens To "Chase" Gay Ambassadors Out Of The Country

Christian Association of Nigeria
The Dominican Republic isn't the only country that is taking issue with US ambassadors that happen to be gay. Nigeria is adding their name to the list and, like the Dominican Republic, there is difference of opinion held between government officials...

“Nigeria is not against any country for legalizing gay marriage, but in our country, given our customs and traditions, as well as religious beliefs, marriage as ordained by God is between a man and a woman,” [Minister of Foreign Affairs Olugbenga] Ashiru reportedly said. ”But if we have diplomats with same sex spouses posted to Nigeria, we have no choice but to accredit them accordingly because they come from countries where such law is in place.”

...and hyper-conservative Christians...

"To us, this is ridiculous and unacceptable and we are seriously disturbed because for the first time, Nigerian Muslims and Christians have agreed that they don’t subscribe to gay marriage." - statement from the Christian Association of Nigeria

Much like the religious leaders in the Dominican Republic promising that ambassador James "Wally" Brewster would be made to suffer to force him to leave the country, so too have the members of the Christian Association of Nigeria promised to "mobilize to chase [gay diplomats] out of the country." Because Jesus.

  5. Yes, Nigeria is a homophobic hellhole. I should know cos I've lived there. However, I don't think that warrants the blatantly racist comments some of you are leaving. Don't complain about someone else's discrimination if you're going to discriminate against them in the next sentence. Sincerely, an irate gay "neanderthal".
