Homosexuality, men having sexual intercourse, is an abominable act in many parts of Africa. Africa, a continent of different tribes and clans, doesn’t approve many things that they considered a taboo. Thus; someone caught in homosexual act, instantly faces severe punishment, beatings and lynching, many times leading to death.
Since homosexuality is a crime in African countries that don’t permit, those involved in such acts, hide it from the sight of the public, but homosexuality movements in Europe and America today, fighting for recognition have inspired or encouraged African homosexuals to make their voice heard.
Thus, the social vice which is less popular in Africa, is now becoming famous in many African countries,, turning the countries into an unnerving place to live in, because church leaders and many organisations against this practice, wouldn’t like to embrace this type of culture, they called it ‘Evil’ to add to their own culture.
At times, I do ask my self time and time, do Europeans or Americans think Africa will readily accept whatever they are interested? Africa has nothing to do with Christianity, before the white missionaries ever went there. They thought Africans to follow the Bible or the gospel. Well, later the truth was discovered. The reason wasn’t to let Africans know about Christianity but to loot.
Fortunately, many parts of Africa, derived interest in the Bible and studied it thoroughly, therefore living by its teachings. An African christian, explaining his point, to defend his hate against homosexuality, would take one deep step into the Bible. Two of such scriptures confirming that homosexuality is an evil act, can be read at 1st Timothy: Chapter 10 and 1st Corinthians, chapter 6, verse 9.
The question is: Why are Europeans and other Gay Rights Organisations, now fighting for the practice of homosexuality to be recognised in Africa, when they had already been there with the Holy Bible, a book telling Africans how evil the practice of homosexuality is?” The teachings of the Holy Bible can’t be reversed, so I am afraid to say that Africa can never change its mind or opinion on the negative aspects of homosexuality.
