January 19, 2014 – Nigerian Openly Gay Pastor Decries Same Sex Marriages Ban In Nigeria “Gays & Lesbians Are Planning Suicide”

Nigeria‘s first openly gay Pastor Jide Macaulay who fled Nigeria few years back for the fear of persecution after opening a gay church in Lagos has lent his voice on the current ban on homosexuality in Nigeria.

Jide Macaulay told Vanguard on Saturday he has been getting so many emails and messages from Nigerian gays and lesbians expressing their fear, anger and plan to kill themselves over ban on same sex marriages in Nigeria.

On the 7th of January, 2014, President Jonathan signed anti gay bill banning same sex marriages into law in Nigeria.

The law bans same sex marriage, and through its wording, also seeks to criminalise people, organisations and agencies who support homosexuality and those who do not immediately report any known homosexuals, or homosexual activities.

Read what Jide Macaulay said about the ban below:

Since January12th, when the announcement was made, the LGBT-community has been thrown into panic. There is chaos throughout Nigeria as we are grappling with keeping up with mass arbitrary arrest, humiliation, blackmail, extortion and police corruption in several ‘charge and bail’ cases.

The hostility in Nigeria against gay people has reached epic proportions. In the East of Nigeria, many are fleeing their homes. One gay man, labelled “a leader of the homosexual” is on the run. His parents and brother were threatened with arrest if they don’t provide information about his whereabouts.

In the same region, more than six people were arrested. In the West of the country, we can confirm that nearly ten people have been arrested and bailed. The police have extorted funds from each victim at an average of between $120 to $300. Most of the people arrested were tortured and asked to provide additional details of other gays or lesbians. In the North of Nigeria, in Bauchi and Kano, there are two separate cases of arrests and harassment of gay people. Both areas are firmly under sharia law, which carries the death penalty.

In the wake of the passing of the anti gay laws, there is no doubt of the many calls, emails and online messages we have received, expressing fear, anger, anxiety and suicide attempts. This is a critical time for all LGBTI-people; a time when our ideals are being stretched and tested.

The Nigerian President and legislators have ignored the critical aspect of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and passed into law a legislation that is unjust.

In a BBC Radio program yesterday, I spoke out to condemn this law. However, a few of the speakers claimed that a research showed that 98% of Nigerians are happy and jubilant about this law, and based on their religious beliefs that homosexuality is “unafrican”, against religion and unnatural.

Nigeria like many African nations, has many issues and the oppression of LGBT-citizens is largely unwelcomed by an already marginalised group. We are now looking into our first priority intervention to help those displaced and or attacked.

In view of the present situation in Nigeria, we are helping with emergency evacuation to safe homes around the country. The Initiative for Equal Rights (TIERs), a Human Rights Organisation in Nigeria, has now opened a 24hr support line for LGBT-people in Nigeria.

We also continue to advise all LGBT-people to stay away from trouble, not pick unknown phone numbers and sign off gay dating websites.

Reverend Jide Macaulay, Founder and Project Director of House Of Rainbow Fellowship.

End time is definitely here.

Where in the bible is homosexuality encouraged.

    I never agreed with the way they phrased this law. I don’t think they should put a prison sentence on gay behavior. This is a sin against God, not man. By saying that you need 14 years to “pay your debt to society”, assumes that 14 years is enough to heal someone of their gay behavior.

    It would have been better if the law was phrased as such:

    “The only marriages recognized by the Federal Republic of Nigeria are that between a man and a woman.” Pure and simple. No need to put someone in prison for this stuff.

    Otherwise, it opens the door to throw people in prison for:
    -Adultery
    -Prostitution etc

    …and whole host of issues that are things that should be dealt with in the society itself, as opposed to the government.

    If our parents were homosexuals, we won’t be here, and you people that think you are homosexuals won’t be here in the first place. this is an evil attack that wants to destroy the hand work of God. all you homosexuals need is to accept Jesus christ and you be delivered. please brothers and sisters. the same homosexuality attack from the devil is the same poverty, fornication,adultury, and others attacks from the devil.

    Nigerians are very happy with the president for passing into law same sex marriage prohibition act,thereby handing down 14 years jail terms on offenders.Am not in support of homosexuality,it is evil,ungodly,unnatural,shameless and unacceptable,i wanna say more power to the elbow of Mr president.Let us be candid pals,do you guys not think that there are other issues that needs urgent attention like insecurity,corruption and a host of others.If only Oga GEJ Can summon up the courage to tackle insecurity and also to hand down death penalty on corrupt officials in and outside government, corruption will be reduced to a manageable level or if not fizzled out outrightly.God bless my home land Nigeria!

    @jim jones i understand what you are saying.. As for the ignorant ones they do not know that once a law on religion is passed it makes it okay for lets say the next president to ban christians from going to church the same day as with them because of religion… democracy is not tied to culture or religion no man deserves to be bound…

    Suicide is not the answer.

    God is not interested in your death but in your full REPENTANCE.
    If you read your bible…Romans 1:22-32 Read it over and over till you understand it. As you are a pastor Macaulay , u suppose know where the book of Romans dey. The BIBLE is the word of GOD. Also read John 1:1
    Now if the the understanding that it is God speaking in Romans 1:22-32 hits you, then why do u go on the pulpit to promote sin. Go for full deliverance, consecrate yourself and let the true power of God manifest itself in your life.

    @ davien………you are constituting nuisance on this site. Enough of your useless epistles. Can’t you see it’s not making sense to anyone? If your parents have denied you the opportunity of existence by practicing gay and lesbianism, would you be here to publish these rubbish?…..make use of your brain.

    @dan,how many times do i have to say that real gay people are hard-wired to be attracted to the same sex,people who claim to have changed are either lying or not sure of their sexual preference in the first place…

    Mr gay pastor, the whole Nigerians would be glad to supply you and your abominable group hanging rope or Otapiapia (rat poison) to facilitate your suicide. Shameless animals!

    So you approve that human beings should kill themselves because others cannot accept their way of life,what makes you any different from the devil himself or hitler the tyrant???
