  1. He has an invisible friend who controls everything – his opinion can be safely discarded as the delusional ravings that they are, no more meaningful than someone divining the future in the entrails of a sacrificed goat.

    But hey, at least he is part of a mechanism for controlling people that keeps them mired in ignorance and poverty – the only two things that religion produces in abundance.

    1. The problem is that in backward countries like Nigeria, where they still engage in all sorts of superstitious practices, including child sacrifices, witchcraft, and with their main problem being extreme levels of corruption in their government, judiciary and police/military, churches are still taken seriously by politicians, and although he’s completely barking, and worships some mythical fantasy deity, these religious crazies still wield enough power to move opinion towards discrimination. He’s a pretend Chicken Little because he obviously doesn’t really believe what he says – especially as the weight of evidence shows that equality and respect for the dignity of others brings only positive outcomes, but he wants to win the argument at any cost, regardless of what he has to do, and if that includes lying he’ll do it. It’s nothing but a political game between the churches and government, people who are gay are caught in the middle.

  2. Do these people seriously believe that if gay couples dont marry that oneday they will possibly breed. Braincell deficient, and these people are looked upto by the masses.

    Why does Pink news insist on reporting the opinion of these nobodies.

    1. Mumbo Jumbo 22 Jan 2013, 1:53pm

      Because, sadly, in Africa, they are somebodies.

    ““Same-sex marriage is an anathema to the will of God for human beings to be fruitful, replenish and multiply on earth. Anything contrary to that is evil.”

    Er… coming from a continent where we have probably the most people starving I find it incredible that such blatant, vile comments to be seriously hypocritical.

    How exactly does he propose humanity will be wiped out? Will all suddenly be Gay or Lesbian?

    Absolutely ridiculous!

    1. Why do you keep printing this crap?

    2. Keith Francis Farrell 22 Jan 2013, 4:46pm

      hopefully this will teach us to make sure that we know where our dontated money goes, no more feeding starving african children. Why send money there let these churches support their own starving population. Use our money here to support our own people. these are plenty of good causes to spend our money on here in the UK. young gay people need help and homes too. I have found it very hard settling back into the UK, I lived in Africa. I know what is really going on. no matter how much you donate they will always need more because they cannot stop having children, it is normal for there to be 10 children in a family. and they do not have enough to eat.

  4. He’s totally spot on there! My parents have already said that when gay couples can marry they’re gonna get divorced and find themselves someone of the same sex to marry……THE WORLD IS DOOMED!!!

  5. where was he educated on a sheep farm

  6. But he does have a brilliant deal for you… His late uncle left him $5 million and he would like you to send him your bank details…

  7. Nigeria, along with many other African countries have alarming birth rates, populations that they cannot support themselves so look to the rest of the world for aid and support.

    What we don’t need is more babies being born to those who cannot afford to care for them.

    What a complete and utter moron!

    1. That There Other David 22 Jan 2013, 12:24pm

      Nigeria isn’t a poor country. It’s oil rich, and after South Africa has the highest GDP south of the Sahara.

      What it is, however, is stuck in some medieval timewarp with regards to society. In the North the Muslims and Christians routinely attack each other like some re-run of the Crusades, whilst in other areas children and adults are frequently murdered for witchcraft. Not a country to follow the example of really.

  8. Based on no discernible education whatsoever Pastor Fukwit believes same-sex marriage will wipe out humanity.

    Pastor Fukwit was then assisted in tying his own shoelaces before leaving the pulpit.

  9. That There Other David 22 Jan 2013, 12:21pm

    After listening to Mr. Adeboye’s comments I’m beginning to hope humanity will indeed wipe itself out, if only to give my ears a rest.

  10. Read David Attenborough’s warning about population rising OUT OF CONTROL in today’s TIMES and also in this week’s Radio Times.

    The world cannot sustain this level of population – what we need are MORE childless couples-far more.

    1. True. But it is the nature of organised religion to ensure the next generation of obedient gullible followers are whelped, in order to consolidate their own wealth and power.

      And if you can convince them that suffering is “righteous”, even better, you can just let them drown in the mire of their own ignorance.

      1. ‘Whelped’, how wonderfully appropriate!

        1. What can I say? Anyone who honestly and legitimately cared about the wellbeing of children would not discourage the use of birth control (for example) and would not hope for huge numbers of children to be born into deprivation.

          It’s why religion controls and mandates sex in general, and reproduction in particular, as a method of self perpetuation. Children are commodity, to be raised in the faith in order to keep the priest classes employed and powerful. And since that is how they are used, that is why I purposefully use a dehumanising term.

  11. Is he implying that same sex marriage will turn everyone gay?

    And even if it did turn everyone gay which I seriously doubt, I think people will still have surrogates.

    1. I always wonder about people who go on and on about everyone turning gay or the promotion of homosexuality. They must be very insecure in their own sexuality to think they can change at the drop of a hat. No truly straight person I know lives in fear of turning gay at the merest whiff of gayness passing them by.

      1. Frank Boulton 23 Jan 2013, 7:43am

        Homophobia not only presents homosexuality in the worst possible light, it presents heterosexuality in the worst possible light as well. Perpetuating the myth that people can be turned gay is damaging to all who are misinformed enough to believe it. Irrational fears do no one any good. In countries like Nigeria and Uganda, it is just not safe to disagree with this twaddle.

  12. Brett Gibson 22 Jan 2013, 12:25pm

    Dumb as a box of hair. Humanity seemed to survive the tens of thousands of years before the jews came along with their old testament and ruined life for gay people. I’m sure we’ll survive after, checked the population stats recently? Also those other 500 odd species where homosexuality is documented….they seem to have survived. You know when you have to tell kids ‘think before you speak’ – looks like this guy didn’t pay attention in First school.

  13. Barbarian Propaganda!! Its no wonder the country struggles when it is being run by people that are simply Dictators using religion to help then rule the uneducated masses. Concentrate on your Citizens well being, not your own agenda!

  14. You couldn’t make it up, could you? His logic tells him that if Gay people are allowed to marry then, given time, there will be no straight people.
    I disagree with those complaining about PN reporting this. It is not just the opinion of one person. His poison infects many.

  15. I think he’s missed a vital point. Equal marriage affirms familial units. Not all heterosexual couples are biologically ‘fruitful’ either. Also, it wouldn’t be obligatory for men to marry men and women to marry women exclusively AND there would still be couples who choose NOT to marry regardless of their sexuality. I’d like to see an article showing how the immutable institution of marriage has actually changed considerably throughout history…women’s rights, human rights, so why not gay rights?

  16. Robert (Kettering) 22 Jan 2013, 12:46pm

    Such an ignorant fool! What about strights who marry who are too old to produce kids? What about if one partner is sterile? Are these marriages against God too?

    This is 100% homophobic bigottery nothing more, nothing less so let’s not bring God into this as an excuse.

  17. Nigerian Christian preachers are so intelligent and sophisticated in their arguments. I never thought about it that way before, but know I feel totally enlightened.

  18. Nigeria alone has over 160m people and population growth is what he’s worried about?

    You couldn’t make these people up.

  19. Humanity is doing quite well on its own. Clear this pastor hasn’t seen the latest project population growth rates?

  20. “f this evil is allowed to stay, there will not be newborns again in the world”

    Uh huh, yeah, that’s SO true. And if you sleep with your head under the pillow, the tooth fairy will come and take all your teeth out. Ooh, yeah! Be warned about these twin dangers, everyone!!

    Why are anti-equality people so daft?

  21. Robert in S. Kensington 22 Jan 2013, 1:58pm

    He’s merely chanting the same mantra that the C4M and religious nutters in our own country are saying, including many MPs in opposition. I see no difference.

    None of them really answer the question in regard to heterosexuals who can’t procreate. Should they too be banned from marriage? I suspect the answer would be no because when you get right down to it, it’s the obsession with genitalia and sexual acts that get them into a tizzy. I suspect most of them don’t enjoy a regular sex life to be ranting on about it so much, too busy worrying and fantasising about what gay people do in the privacy of their bedrooms.

    The last time I checked, civil marriage was invented by secular societies, not by any religious cult. Civil marriage has no religious component and no expectation or mandate to procreate.

    How would this idiot explain why heterosexuals are continuing to marry in spite of equal marriage in eleven countries. Have their societies been wiped out? Hardly! Have they….

    1. Robert in S. Kensington 22 Jan 2013, 2:01pm

      …stopped breeding just because gay people can marry? He should look at his own retarded country where the birth rate is exceptionally high and gay people had nothing to do with it.

  22. That makes SO much sense!

    If it wasn’t for the awful conditions that LGBT people deal with in countries where this kind of ideology festers, this man’s theories would almost be funny.

    It’s amazing how people can come up with these ideas and not even be challenged by those listening to them.

  23. Garry Cassell 22 Jan 2013, 2:51pm

    So you are saying couples that can’t have children are evil??? What kind of stupid idiot are you? Well, I guess to make such stupid remarks as made here you prove your point. The sad part of this is that you are passing your dtupidity on to many many people who will eventually pay the price in so many ways…You “pastor” as I call you that ever so lightly…have nothing to do with God..you are a bloody con artist trying to rip off the poor people in your country…I bet u also are involved with all those on-line money scams…

  24. ITS RELEGION THAT WILL END HUMANITY. BECAUSE OF ALL ITS HAGTE!!!!!!

  25. ITS RELEGION THAT WILL END HUMANITY. BECAUSE OF ALL ITS HATE!!!!!!

  26. Staircase2 22 Jan 2013, 3:51pm

    At which point do these idiots wake up and actually start thinking rather than just spouting the same endless, biblically unsupported drivel…?

  27. Funny innit? It’s not fifty years since white-supremacists used to say exactly the same thing about inter-racial marriage. Oh dear. People have such short memories ….

  28. He was preaching to those we havent yet converted

  29. Keith Francis Farrell 22 Jan 2013, 4:39pm

    So sick of these hateful people. they make me angry. I have enough problems just coping with living, I dont want to put up with their nonsence, Please sponser me and make sure I have a firearm with me at all times and I would be happy to kill all these hateful people. I will dispatch them to meet their god and I will be quite happy to stand in judgement before god saying I made sure that these hateful creatures found a way to see him before they infected the would. That goes for all the church leaders who want to sow hate. I will be happy to send you to god for judgement

    1. Hrh Elizabeth Eff Obisanya 23 Jan 2013, 8:20am

      hun you need topray for them true, as he does not have faith to believe in what Jesus has done for the gay and lesbian – which is tragic as he is a pastor.

  30. And the award for being the most hysterical about equal marriage goes to…………..

  31. So, if I choose to marry my boyfriend, everyone who is straight will suddenly disappear? Pull the other one, you fvcking tw@t.
    Not with the population explosion going on in your country. 22 babies to one mother from 706 fathers and you complain there isn’t enough food to go round. You ask us for donations via churches and charities, then you start rambling on about nonsense like this. I want my donation back and I’ll take back the three pairs of shoes I gave to you via a charity.

    Don’t bite the hand that feeds you.

  32. Elizabeth Obisanya 23 Jan 2013, 8:15am

    Whilst it is true that God did outlaw homosexuality and lesbianism in the Old Testament (Leviticus 18:22)
    Galatians 3:13 tells us that He paid the price for us breaking the law of the Old testament this clearly includes the consequence of breaking the ban on homosexuality and lesbianism law, so why are countries like Nigeria and Uganda advocating imprisonment and or the death penalty.? This is what the PAstor should be speaking up against , even if you dont have faith to believe that God has made Gays and Lesbians right we know that the bible does not advocate their imprisonment.

    1. Hrh Elizabeth Eff Obisanya 23 Jan 2013, 8:18am

      What i mean is for those who dont speak religion is this: it was a sin once upon a time , under Grace ( what Jesus came to established) Jesus took away the Law so people cannot break it thereby making those that believe in Him and that He has done this to be blameless and just like anyother Christian that He died for . I am disappointed that the pastor did not bring to light the plight of gays being imprisoned in Nigeria even if he didnt have faith to believe what Jesus has done for them. It is clear God didnt advocate ANY PUNISHMENT against the Gay or Lesbian!!

  33. Dark backward thinking.

  34. Isa Kocher 23 Jan 2013, 5:27pm

    anyone that dumb should have theır lıcense to go outsıde revoked. the very absurdity of his remarks indicates he is not firing with all his pistons. he needs to be kept out of harms way. as if you could pass a law forcing everyone into a same sex marriage. maybe someone could pass a law that made preachers like him have to pass a test in basic fact first. biology 101 for protestants catholics and rants. if the fail, they take vows of chastity and have to wear a court appointed chastity belt to keep their genes in the jeans.

  35. johnny33308 25 Jan 2013, 4:51am

    How about showing some scientifc eveidence to back up such patently ridiculous prognostications? We will wait while the pompous ass, bigot extraordinaire, but non-thinking ‘pastor’ retreives his scientific research to probve his point….bet he cannot find it any longer. BTW, there is no such scientific data in the least. Another brain dead ‘religious’ person filled with hatred and bigotry. Surprise!!!!

  36. No…. Nigerian spam mail is going to destroy humanity
