Abuja - A cleric, Pastor Johnson Olabisi, said on Saturday that it was wrong
to consider the law against same sex marriage as an infringement on the
human rights of some people.
Olabisi, the Oyo State Chairman of Christian Association of Nigeria
(CAN), made this remark in an interview in Ibadan.
"My opinion about this is biblical to the extent that I don’t think
any student or cleric of the Bible can assert his own ideas on whatever
God does not ordain in the Bible.
"I do not see anyone having the right to alter God’s ordinances
concerning marriage; for God ensured that He was the minister-in-charge
at the wedding between Adam and Eve.
"We have no human rights to claim before God, because He is the overall master and He has ordained very good things for us.
"Any right against God’s wish can therefore be risky to life and we
should remember that God’s judgment is coming one day”, he said.
He, therefore, urged Christians all over the world to follow whatever the Bible says.
Olabisi commended President Goodluck Jonathan for taking the bold step on the law against same sex marriage.
He urged the president to continue to shun the pressure to reconsider
his stance about the law against same sex marriage in the country.
"Majority of the world’s power may be against it, but what God ordained for the world is that a man should marry a woman.
