Secretary Kerry: U.S. deeply concerned by Nigeria’s enactment of the Same Sex Marriage Prohibition Act

Deep Concern with Nigeria’s Enactment of the Same Sex Marriage Prohibition Act

Press Statement

John Kerry Secretary of State Washington, DC

January 13, 2014

The United States is deeply concerned by Nigeria’s enactment of the Same Sex Marriage Prohibition Act.

Beyond even prohibiting same sex marriage, this law dangerously restricts freedom of assembly, association, and expression for all Nigerians.

Moreover, it is inconsistent with Nigeria’s international legal obligations and undermines the democratic reforms and human rights protections enshrined in its 1999 Constitution.

People everywhere deserve to live in freedom and equality. No one should face violence or discrimination for who they are or who they love.

We join with those in Nigeria who appeal for the protection of their fellow citizens’ fundamental freedoms and universal human rights.

In Nigeria Muslims are murdering Christians in the north, people are blowing themselves up in the southeast trying to steal oil from pipelines and hijackers are operating off the coast. But Lurch is most concerned about gay marriage?

An administration full of incompetent fools.

How did the world manage for all those thousands of years without same sex marriage? OK. So Muslims are bombing Nigerian churches. Big deal. Dog bites man. Same sex marriage! That should be a top priority!

So he’s lecturing Nigeria about their law which is the same as the law in most of the United States.
Will the U. S. ever be taken seriously again?

Their legal obligations apparently approve killing Christians, but they can’t object to gay marriage. Truly a weird policy statement.

In fact, as a minister, I can testify to the number of African bishops who have implored our churches NOT to approve of gay marriage BECAUSE even saying it gives CAUSE overseas for Muslims to kill Christians.

Kerry just subtly approved the burning of more Christian Churches.

Still waiting...

This public release by Kerry gives Muslims a go-ahead to burn more churches in Nigeria.

One of the reasons for the gay marriage ban is the significant presence of Muslims in Nigeria. No Islamic country would ever approve gay marriage. It is against Islam.

Dear Mr. Jon Kery
I’m sure you have heard about the new laws in Nigeria
pertaining to gay marriage. My uncle was married to
a gay person and was worth a lot of money. Right before
he was necklaced he gave me his fortune.
Now I need a discrete partner to help me get it out of
the country as I am a bit odd myself. I thought if
I married a gay American I could come to your country
and we would split this vast fortune.
Please send my your SS number, bank routing number
and $1500 to cover our expenses.
Thanks Robert B. Owatanga. (call me Roberta)

first he makes a fool of himself endangering America with the new Iran nuclear deal

then he makes a complete ass of himself proposing “peace terms” for Israel that would have her actually give away more land (and the high, militarily-significant ground at that) to the terrorist murderers seeking her annihilation

now he sticks his nose into foreign countries’ internal social policy decisions, trying to force “gay marriage” on them all

isn’t this fellow married? why doesn’t his wife demand he SHUT UP !?

this guy is even more embarrassing, if that be possible, than was his predecessor! wow!

Um...no. Obama and his administration seem deeply and overly concerned with gay advocacy. Their priorities are mind-boggling. The rest of us are minding our own business.

As you indicated, these fools positions' will likely result in more Christians being killed.
