“I Don’t Support Gay Lifestyle But I’m Against The Law” – Oby Ezekwesili


A former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili has said her religious inclination will never make her support gay lifestyle though she is against the new law by President Goodluck Jonathan on same-sex marriage.

In a series of tweets this morning, Ezekwesili said:
“I am not one bit ashamed of my strong spiritual belief in the gospel of Jesus.I strive to live by the Word of God & wish everyone would too. My Bible-the Word of God states clearly in Leviticus 18v22 “You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination.”
In 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 says “Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 continues … “Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. In the Epistle of Paul to the Romans 1v26-27 there is explicit denunciation …”
For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural. And in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another. Men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their errors.
Those Biblical texts are the reason that I, an evangelical Christian can never support the gay lifestyle… On the new law however, I differ. Every law must pass the test of CERTAINTY…..the law must be certain, in that it is clear & precise, & its legal implications foreseeable.
We know how very improbable it would be for CERTAINTY to be always established in our society in the interpretation of this law by people.Imagine the unintended consequences in a society already given to mob action when a law is not clear& precise… Too costly for everyone”.
