Anti-Gay Law: Mark Hails Jonathan’s ‘Courage’ In The Face Of Pressure From Powerful Nations

Published

_Jonathan_and_David_Mark_Senate_President_912548088President of the Senate, David Mark, has commended President Goodluck Jonathan for summoning the courage to sign the Same Sex Marriage (Prohibition) Bill 2013 into law despite what he called “tremendous pressure” from leaders of some of the most powerful nations on earth.

Mark said as a result of pressure from the unnamed “powerful nations”, he at a pointed feared Mr. Jonathan would develop cold feet and refuse to sign the bill into law after both chambers of the National Assembly had passed it and the only thing remaining was presidential assent.

He spoke at the opening of the Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria’s 2014 first plenary meeting with the theme, “Church and state partnership in providing quality education for Nigerian people”, held at the Our Lady Queen of Nigeria Pro-Cathedral, Abuja.

“I must commend Mr. President for the courage he exhibited because I am aware that at one point, he was under serious and tremendous pressure not to sign that bill into law by some of the most powerful nations on the earth. But he demonstrated courage and patriotism, we must thank him”, the President of the Senate said.

Mark also used the occasion to decry the incessant killings by Boko Haram in the North Eastern part of the country, especially the recent massacre of schoolchildren, describing the acts as unacceptable.

He argued that taking another person’s life was not the right way to express grievances.

    please where is the courage in denying people their human rights do you not know what God calls that? He calls it Oppression and hates it.

    If you really felt it was wrong and abnormal why not offer treatment deliverance etc to the LGBT instead of imprisonment for non offences essentially against no one.? Love would not imprison if they felt someone was sick as we have been called, instead you imprison your sick na waaa ooo, which kind Love be that one?

    Anyway Jesus died for Gays and lesbians to be who they are and to make Heaven. I don’t give Human Rights i give SUPERhuman Rights as Laid up in Christ, this we are told to go and do TELL THEM THE GOOD NEWS that Jesus paid the price..and He did

    Wow! Judging by your comment, I can derive that you are gay and not even a sympathizer. Your type are the ones that make people see Christians as unclean and never want to turn to the Cross and be saved by the same Jesus that you used as a justifying yardstick for allowing evil to keep breathing and breading in our corrupt society.
    First, let me make it known to you, if by any means you forgot to think critically, that Gay Right is not in any way the same as Human Right. Rather, it’s an abnormal sexual orientation by the people who are gay.
    Let me also refer you to the book of the law where Christ was established(the Bible), that He died for the remission of our sins, as said in the Bible, does not mean we should continue to wallow in sin as Homosexuality is a condemned sin as seen in the Old Testament when God came strong on Sodom and Gomorah for the same ‘sin’ of homosexuality. So, that Christ died for our sins to be forgiven does not give us liberty to commit sins. And written also is “where there is no law, sin does not abound” and now we have a law prohibiting such act and that makes it a sin both in the sight of men and of the almighty God.
    Did you ever sit down and ask yourself this simple question of a wise being “What if my forefathers were gay, will I ever come into existence?” They can not procreate/conceive by being married to a person of the same sex instead, they go ahead to adopt innocent children thereby imparting this socio-eccentricity of homosexuality into such children but thank God for some countries that have prohibited them from adopting their children.
    Also from my wide findings on this Gay plague, these western world putting pressure on others for passing anti-gay laws once treated homosexuals as sick people who need psychological therapy or be transferred to a psychiatric hospital for further treatments but when it was someone from/close to the elites(relatives of the elite class) it became ‘human right’
    The Bible said “go into the world and multiply and fill the face of the earth.” And God created man and woman not man and man nor woman and woman. So, why change the natural order?
    For a right minded and rational human being, this is against human nature. I don’t know what is the problem with you Christians coming out to use the Bible in this manner! You will never hear/read from a muslim (even if he/she is gay in the secrete) openly supporting this inhumane insanity. Shame on you for using the ‘Holy Scripture’ as a backing for your sinful sickness.
    I’m not saying they should die, but be removed from the ‘open’ society. Period!

    Ode osi, oloriburuku oponu, omo iran ki ran, dan banza, dan iska, anuofia, anungboko, oyin oshi. Ungrateful bastard!

Nigerian businessman, Femi Otedola has finally reacted to the shooting that took place at Lekki Tollgate, Lagos on Tuesday.

Sharing a photo of the Nigerian flag, he wrote;

“The horrors that have been unfolding in our country have left me filled with sadness. I deeply commiserate with those who have lost their loved ones and as a father, I share the sentiment of my three daughters who protested in Lagos and London. As a young boy of 16, I participated in the ‘Ali Must Go Protest’ of 1978, so I understand the determination of our youths who rightly want our country to be better. We must all do our part to make Nigeria great! I will continue to do my own quota in providing for those who are most in need of support in our country in these tough times .…F.Ote💲”

Information Nigeria recalls a graphics designer identified as Oke, was killed hours after tweeting “Nigeria will not kill me” on Wednesday.

It was reported that the young man had passed away after he was hit by a stray bullet.

The deceased’s younger brother, Daniel has come out to clear the air regarding the circumstances leading to his death.

Daniel revealed his brother was stabbed on the neck by thugs who infiltrated and ransacked their home.

In his words;

Good day, My name is Obi-Enadhuze Daniel younger brother of the now deceased Okechukwu Obi-Enadhuze @O_Okee . I, my brother and mother lived at makinde police barracks, mafoluku, Oshodi, Lagos State.

Today at about 11 o’clock in the morning the police station at makinde was attacked by thugs who wanted to destroy the station, I my mom and brother were holed up in our house.

 The attack went on for hours before the thugs eventually breached the police and proceeded to set the station on fire, after accomplishing this they set their sights to the barracks and began the assault, they proceeded to destroy every car in the barracks, my mom’s 2 cars where destroyed and set on fire and then they infiltrated our house by breaking the door they then proceeded to ransack the house and carted away with everything we own. 

 my brother on trying to get them to take everything but spare us was pushed to my mom’s room and stabbed on the neck, the attacker then proceeded to attack me but missed my neck but got my chin instead, after this my mom and I carried my brothers body to the entrance of the station soliciting for help from the thugs still ravaging the barracks, we were finally able to put him in a wheelbarrow and took him to a hospital where he was rejected because “he was already dead” unfazed we moved him to another hospital where he met the same treatment this was where he bled his last drops of blood and died, his body has now been moved to a morgue

we have lost every single thing we own, as our house was completely ransacked and set on fire the only thing left is my brothers phone and at about 8 o’clock this evening the barracks was still on fire but Okechukwu has paid with the ultimate price

I and my mother are homeless with nothing now but we’re safe for now, we thank everyone that has been able to reach out to us, and were able to share consoling words with us in these trying times, God bless you

While we were holed up in the house the three of us said these words together and we say it again ” THREE OF US ARE HERE, THREE OF US ARE TOGETHER, THREE OF US ARE SAFE”

Let it be known that my brother @O_Okee  was NOT killed by a police bullet but died a hero protecting my mother and I.

If you see this please retweet, let the world know how Okechukwu died. He was NOT killed by a police bullet but thugs in his home!”
