Growing gay society worries clergy in Migori

The clergy in Migori want joint efforts to fight the growing gay society in the country.

This follows a public declaration by a section of youth in Kisumu that they belonged to gay sect.

Led by Bishop John Okinda of the Pentecostal Evangelistic Church of Africa, the clergy now want religious leaders to denounce the practice.

Bishop Okinda said the church will not sit back while their sons engage in men to men sex, a practice he termed as ‘unbiblical’.

Okinda while speaking to the press in Migori town maintained that the culture of men marrying men is unbiblical and should be condemned in the strongest terms possible.

He called on the churches in Nyanza to join hands in sensitising the youth to desist from joining the community of gay, saying it is threatening accepted cultural settings, which is currently enjoyed.

It is worrying to see young men gathering and announcing that they belong to the gay community. This is unacceptable and we call for a joint fight, said Bishop Okinda.

He expressed fear that the practice may have taken root in urban centres in Nyanza region.

The recent declaration of a section of youth in Kisumu that they belong to gay society has elicited sharp criticisms from religious quarters in Nyanza region.
