Kenyan Politician to Obama: Push the Gay Agenda, and We Will Tell You to Shut Up and Go Home

Ahead of President Obama’s visit to Kenya, his ancestral homeland, a very clear warning was issued by a local politician: If you come and push the gay agenda, we will tell you to shut up and go home. It was also said that they are a “God-fearing nation” and therefore no amount of persuasion will make them change their minds.

From Western Journalism:

President Barack Obama may not be received with open arms by leaders in his ancestral homeland of Kenya during his planned visit later this month–if he starts preaching the gospel of homosexual acceptance.

CNS News reports that Irungu Kangata, a lawmaker in Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta’s The National Alliance (TNA) party, said: “We are telling Mr. Obama when he comes to Kenya this month and he tries to bring the abortion agenda, the gay agenda, we shall tell him to shut up and go home.”

Kangata, according to The Standard of Nairobi, said Kenyans would protest against Obama over the gay agenda issue while he visited their country.

Additionally Deputy President William Ruto said homosexuality was “against the plan of God,” while speaking at a church in Nairobi last Sunday. “God did not create man and woman so that men would marry men and women marry women,” he was quoted as saying by The Daily Nation.

“No amount of persuasions, theories or philosophy will make us change our position. We believe in God, this is a God fearing nation and will continue to be so,” he added.

Reuters reports that Ruto’s spokesman, Emmanuel Talam, confirmed the remarks, adding: “The government believes that homosexual relations are unnatural and unAfrican.”

Rose Mitaru, one of 47 female lawmakers in Kenya, said that allowing same-sex marriage in her country would open “floodgates of evil synonymous with the biblical Sodom and Gomorrah.”

The practice of homosexuality is illegal in Kenya and has been since the nation’s founding in 1963. According to a Pew Research poll, 90 percent of Kenyans believe homosexuality is wrong. This number is consistent with most African nations’ views on the issue, according to the poll.

Maybe the next stop the rainbow crowd will make is in Africa. Something tells me I shouldn’t hold my breath, though.
