“None of them can pass a psychiatric test, because they are not normal”

This is what is being said about Gays and Lesbians.

Here is the story:

Malam Abdulkadir Apaokagi, an Abuja-based Islāmic scholar, on Sunday in Abuja, called for death penalty for same-sex marriage in Nigeria.

Apaokagi in a sermon at the weekly prayer session of Nasrul –lahi-L-Fatih Society of Nigeria (NASFAT), said gays in Nigeria were perverts who did not deserve to co-exist with right thinking and decent people.

He said gays were worse than murderers, and deserve stiffer penalty than those accused of killing fellow human beings.

“Homosexuality and lesbianism are just too dirty in the sight of Allah, those who engage in them deserve more than capital punishment. When they are killed, their corpse should also be mistreated.” He has got to be kidding, right?

Apaokagi, who is the deputy chief Imam at the Abuja branch of NASFAT, said in his lecture entitled: “The position of Islam on gay marriage” that gay people were mentally unstable and could bring severe instability to the society in which they lived.

“None of them can pass a psychiatric test, because they are not normal,” he said.

The scholar’s sermon came against the background of a recent law passed by the Senate banning same-sex marriage and public display of affection by gays in Nigeria.

The bill, “Same Sex Marriage (Prohibition) bill 2011” also prescribed 14 years jail sentence for convicted gays in Nigeria.

“Any society that tolerates gay marriage would come to destruction the way God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah for sodomy.

“They are criminals, Allah Himself describes them so, and it is great that the Senate has criminalised what they are trying to do.”

He urged the House of Representatives to take a cue from the Senate, and pass its own version of the bill without delay so that President Goodluck Jonathan could sign a harmonised version into law.

Apaokagi also urged Nigerians to ignore criticisms from the West, and come together as one to fight practices that might bring destruction to the country.

You guys should already know how I feel about this foolishness. What is wrong with people? As much as I would want to truly understand their take on the whole “gay thing,” it is just difficult. I totally understand not liking it, and not even wanting it around you. Fine. I do not get how people of “GOD” would want to cause harm or death to another person, for any reason. 

These Nigerians really have some nerve. They are soooo holy? Yea, freaking right. This is the law they decided to pass, with all the shit they have going on?

Give me a break!


  1. The funny thing is, this way of thinking in the Muslim community is not just in Nigeria. It is all over the world and the Muslim religion is spreading and actually gaining court systems in England. As a Christian (which I am), I do see homosexuality as a sin. BUT I see it in the same type of light as I see having sex outside of marriage, cheating on a spouse, ect. I do not put it in the caterogry of child molesters or people who have sex with animals.
    Either way what this man said is sick. I think he view is scary, not only for the LGBT community but for any community in which he ends up finding fault in.


    1. I am okay with people having their own opinions. I don’t think everything is for everyone. I just don’t like when people are to extreme on either end. I wouldn’t go parading around town telling everyone to be gay. I wouldn’t say straight people are evil. Everyone is different and people should accept that fact.


  2. I get the feeling that Apaokagi is gay. It seems like he is really going overboard with his public hatred of homosexuals. And almost always when religious men go overboard like that (think Eddie Long) they are gay themselves.

    I feel so bad for the LGBT community in Nigeria. It must be hell on earth for them.


  3. Yeah, well, it’s a problem with the world going all global now and while we here in the US piddle around with it, grumble and gripe, there are other peoples in the world that would rather see anyone not straight put to death and the more horrible the death, the better. I mean, it’s “good” to know what the rest of the world thinks… but who cares about Nigeria – except other Nigerians? While I don’t knock the Islamic faith, it’s not mine so if some “scholar” starts spouting off in the way they tend to do, who cares – except others of this faith?

    Stuff like this makes me shake my head. If you ever wonder why some people say that religion is just another method to control the weak-minded, well, this pretty much confirms such a thought. Do as I say or die – yeah, that works, huh? Then they wonder why a lot of their “faithful” are breaking away from the religion?

    Insane… just plain nuts.
