Gay Marriage Is Satanic, Says Cleric

The Bishop of Minna Diocese (Anglican Communion), Rev. Daniel Yisa, has condemned the ruling of the U.S. Supreme Court that upheld same-sex marriage as a legal right, describing it as ‘‘Satan’s agenda and not of God.’’

“Same sex-marriage is not our portion as a people and whoever wants to do that in his country should not quote the Bible as a reference point,” Yisa said.

The cleric spoke after the centenary thanksgiving service to mark the 100 years of St. Peter’s Anglican Cathedral Church in Minna on Sunday.

He argued that gay was not Biblical or an African practice.

He said, “If God hates it, we all must hate it”, while admonishing Nigerians not to be deterred but hold on to the gospel truth about such trends.

Yisa said, “The issue is that, as a nation, Nigerians keep calling on God without meeting God’s conditions because there are certain things we are not supposed to do and there are also those things we are expected to do if we have to remain God’s people”.
