The Anglican Bishop of Minna Diocese, Retired Rev. Daniel Yisa, has condemned the United States of America’s decision to legalise same-sex marriage, describing such marriages as “satanic”..
Yisa made the remark while speaking with Journalists after the 100 years (centenary) thanksgiving service at the St. Peter’s Anglican Cathedral Church, on Sunday in Minna.
“Gay is not a Biblical or African practice; if God hates it, we all must hate it.
“We must know the basic truth of the Bible. As far as we are concerned as Nigerians, same sex-marriage is not our portion,” he said.
He said whoever wanted to engage in the practice in his country, could do so out of his or her free volition, but should not say that the Bible supported it.
The Bishop urged Nigerian leaders to be firm on moral issues, adding that same sex marriage would destroy whoever practiced it.
“We should be faithful to God, our families and our nation if we want God to heal our land,” he said.
