Nigerian Pastor Says Gay Marriage Will Destroy Humanity
Parliament has drafted a bill making it a criminal offense punished with prison
A prominent Nigerian pastor this week said gay marriage could wipe out the human race within 20 years. This comes as the Nigerian parliament sends a bill to President Goodluck Jonathan that would make gay marriage an offense punishable by up to 14 years in prison.
Pastor Enoch Adeboye heads the Redeemed Christian Church of God, a mega-church in Lagos, Nigeria's largest city. The church has 6,000 parishes around the world and the president of Nigeria attends his sermons.
Last weekend, the pastor weighed in on an issue that is barely controversial in Nigeria—gay marriage. He called gay marriage an "evil" and that, if it is allowed, no one will have babies and the human race will die out.
