The Sunday Trust quotes Okoh as saying
If the UN has made itself an agent for the propagation of homosexuality globally, then it is time for us (Nigeria) to pull out of the organisation.Okoh made his remarks at a reception for him in Lagos, Nigeria. He urged the church to support him in his battle against homosexuality. The world, he warned, is in rebellion against God, a rebellion that will climax with the appearance of the anti-Christ and the end of the age.
This is because the UN has no right to determine for or impose moral standards on us (Nigeria). Let us stand firm and refuse to be bought over by the West.
Apparently, Okoh, like his predecessor, the Most Rev. Peter Akinola, believes that any truck with an organization tainted with support for homosexuality is sinful. This attitude—who knows what other sins Okoh wants nothing to do with—surely makes communion of Nigeria’s Anglican church possible only with the purest of partners.

Three quick thoughts:ReplyDelete
Is there somewhere we can contribute to his campaign?
I so want to hear CANA's "bishops" explain this one!
Whoever thought we could come to think of Peter Akinola as the voice or reason?
It comes as no surprise to me that Bishop Okoh would react to the RECENT positive action of President Bingu wa Mutharikas FREEING Gay Men Tiwonge Chimbalanga and Steven Monjeja during a press conference for "humanitarian grounds only."ReplyDelete
President Mutharikas made the announcement with U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in Lilongwe, the capital of Malawi.
Too close for comfort or simply defending nearby threats against the ¨party line¨ excluding and anti-Gay baiting at the Church of Nigeria/Anglican Communion?
