Uasin Gishu Bethel Gospel Ministers Condemn Courts Ruling on LGBTQ
Barely two days after the controversial Supreme Court’s ruling allowing members of the LGBTQ community the power to seek formal recognition by the Non-Governmental Organizations Co-ordination Board, several voices gave been raised against the decision recognizing the group members.
Among them are the clergy from Bethel Gospel Ministers from Uasin Gishu County who condemned this vice.
“We condemn with the strongest words possible the decision made by the Supreme Court in our country contrary to the constitution. The constitution starts with identifying our almighty creator who went to create heaven and earth, man and woman, and not that he couldn’t authorize a man to man marriage but that is what He saw pleasing in his eyes.” Said Dr. Eliud Karanja Wanyoike, Bethel Gospel Minister Uasin Gishu.
Citing the lack of material evidence showing man-to-man marriage ending with childbirth neither has the world seen a child come from woman to woman marriage but the world’s population is out of straight people.
“Secondly we’ve never seen a man to man union ending with a child being born, neither have we seen a woman to woman union leading to childbirth. Therefore we see how God started the man-to-woman union that has led to this huge population on this planet. Even those who have started this discussion they didn’t come from male only union or females-only union. So those who are promoting this know what they are going against.” noted Joseph.

Criticizing the judges for making the ruling that calls for the recognition of these groups, the clergy wondered how the judges come up from straight families but want to mess up the country’s reputation and future like the people of Sodom and Gomorrah did in the Bible.
“Even those judges who came up with that decision, there is none of them that came from a man to man union without a woman and vice versa. They are going against the doctrines that they do know. We condemn with everything possible the decision they made for if we say they are destroying morals, they are destroying the future of our society, country, and even continent. They are not supposed to be in our beautiful country. Even in the bible, the people of Sodom and Gomorrah were burnt with fire for engaging in these heinous acts. The courts should condemn these people and their vile acts and not identify them.” Bishop said.
Calling for future scrutiny of our leadership before them occupying public offices and leadership positions in the country, the clergy called for a serious discussion as a country since there are pressing matters that we should focus on and not the kind of discussions we are having at the moment.
“When vetting is being done to look for judges fit for our courts, this should be one of the things being investigated to see their beliefs and stand towards the same-sex marriage. It is something that from now onwards needs to be looked into. Those end up in our public offices, leadership positions so that we don’t end up with these discussions yet we have many problems like the ongoing drought which may be a punishment for our sins.” noted John Njenga Kanja.
