  1. How depressing and backwards – especially coming on the day after a UK sporting celebrity openly reveals he has a same-sex partner. The contrast and irony couldn’t be greater – between what is now possible in a forward-thinking Britain.and the Nigerian nation, stuck in its Colonial past, using the discriminatory laws first introduced by white British colonisers. On gaining their independence, wouldn’t you think they would have wanted to ditch ANY ‘white man’s laws’?

      Well, where religion is concerned, there was no way they would ditch criminalising homosexuality. It’s all about the church and power.

      To digress and relevant in some way, our Parliament today in Westminster has been debating the persecution of Christians in the 21st century. They were all falling over themselves to outdo one another, mostly Tories and DUP members. Some were calling for withdrawing aid from offender nations but they wouldn’t dream of withholding aid when it comes to persecution of gay people. Christians my arse! Blood hypocrites more like it.

      1. Absolutely correct. Hypocrites hypocrite hypocrites. And I wonder how many of them are divorced …. and eat shellfish? I wouldn’t worry too much. They are hand-ringing themselves into oblivion. And who will care ….?

    my neighbor’s step-sister makes $86/hour on the laptop. She has been fired for eight months but last month her pay check was $20442 just working on the laptop for a few hours. see post……. x.co/3KtTq

  3. No reason for anyone to maintain the rule of law in regions that violate human rights. The Christians and Islamists have murdered each other for so long in Nigeria they have no respect for human rights. Most unfortunate.
