A Nigerian Pastor, Charles Awuzie, has reacted to the punishment faced by two gay men in Aba who were caught in the act. The both of them were stripped and made to walk naked across the town with people beating them.
According to the US based pastor, no gay man deserves to die. He claims those who hold contrary believes are no different from extremists in Nigeria.
His post came after a social media user called for the death of homosexuals.
The pastor’s post on social media:
”I posted about gays being lynched in Aba and this brother said they DESERVED TO BE KILLED. Chai.
Religion is wicked.
No gay deserves to die. They deserve to be loved and shown Christ like every other human.
Religious Nigerians share same extremist tendency with Boko Haram – no difference. I just hope you all are seeing the Wickedness of religion.
I am not gay… I am very straight…. But I love gays enough to put my reputation on the ground and defend their blood. That’s love. Love is not defending tithe and false prophets, love is defending HUMANITY.”
