GENERAL Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has deplored the legal backing for same sex marriage in some countries, describing it as evil, capable of wiping out human race in 20 years of its practice.

This is even as he lauded the National Assembly for legislating against same sex marriage in Nigeria, adding that right thinking human being should kick against what he termed “an evil and absurd practice.”

Speaking at the New Year thanksgiving service organised by the Joint Christian Mission of the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), le-Ife, at the weekend, Adeboye, who described same sex marriage as anathema to God’s will and instruction, said “the will of God for human being is to be fruitful, replenish and multiply on earth,” saying anything contrary to that was devilish.

“How can a man who marries a fellow man produce a child? How can a woman who marries a woman produce a child? If this evil is allowed to stay, there will not be new born babies again in the world. As the older generation dies, would there be new generation to succeed them? Even plants and animals have new generation to succeed them,” he said.

The cleric, therefore, implored those who indulged in the act, which he described as sacrilegious, to repent and turn to God, stressing that “like poles repel, unlike poles attract.” Tribune
