MP, Priest condemn same-sex marriage ruling by Appellate Court.

Thika Town MP Eng. Patrick Wainaina, gospel singer Kevin Bahati and  Father Peter Mburu of St. Matias Mulumba Catholic Parish in Makongeni receive a cake from the newly weds, Mr. & Mrs. Ben Odundo on Saturday.
Thika Town MP Eng. Patrick Wainaina and Father Peter Mburu of St. Matias Mulumba Catholic Parish in Makongeni Thika have strongly condemned the recent Court of Appeals ruling that the allowed the registration of the National Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission (NGLHRC) as a Non-Governmental Organisations (NGO).

While speaking during the wedding of the MP’s bodyguard Mr. Bernard Owino Odundo and Tina Owino over the weekend, the two leaders described the decision as a tragic decision for marriage and the nation.

They said that Kenya was committed to strengthening traditional marriage between a man and a woman as the best and only environment for nurturing children.

“Gaysim and lesbianism is unnatural and a culture being forced to us by the western countries. Anyone who believes in God can easily see through such superficial functions,” said the MP.

He appealed to parents to offer parental guidance to their children especially those joining secondary schools where such foreign sexual orientation took place in the guise of civilization.

Fr. Mburu noted that the Bible only recognised the union between a man and a woman as this was God’s way when he brought together Adam and Eve.

“Same sex marriage will only bring a curse on us that will have adverse effects on our future as a people. It’s very sad that even those advocating for this vice don’t practice nor believe in it. They are just misleading other people’s children,” he said.

He pleaded to Kenyans to dedicate this Easter Period to pray for the country otherwise such immorality will only attract the wrath of God against his people just as it was in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah.

On March 22, the Court of Appeal denied an appeal of the NGO Coordination Board that sought to deny an LGBT group’s registration.

Three judges out of five on the Court of Appeal in Mombasa dismissed the appeal and agreed with the lower court’s ruling that “ALL, including LGBT persons, should be allowed to form an organisation and that what is criminalised is the act (in the penal code) and not the person, the Kenyan.”

They said that the penal code does not criminalise the LGBT’s ability to form a group and that they have a constitutional right to freedom of association.
