Adam and Steve



 In Genesis Chapter 19, we are told that because two men (angelic beings) were seen going into Lot's house, both the young and old men of Sodom surrounded his house and said to him "Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us, so that we may know them" ("know them" means sex). Lot refused and instead offered his two virgin daughters to this group of deranged and possibly possessed people. The mob refused his offer and threatened to do worse to Lot than they would have done his guests and proceeded to break the door. Lot's angelic guests rescued him and struck the men with blindness. God had promised Abraham that he would spare the city if even 10 righteous men were found in it. But of course there were no such men. And as Lot and his family fled Sodom and Gomorrah, the Lord destroyed the city with Fire and Brimstone.

In the same book of Genesis, God sees the wickedness and immorality of man and is grieved by his creation, resolving to send a great flood to cleanse the earth. God asks Noah to build an ark to save himself, his family and the world's animals from worldwide deluge of the great flood. Of course people made fun of Noah as he built the ark. After the ark was safely built and with Noah and Co on board, the doors were sealed and that's when the rains came. Its written that in the seventh month, the rain was restrained and the ark rested on the mountains of Ararat. God established his covenant with Noah, his sons and with all living things by placing a rainbow in the clouds. The rainbow is a reminder to mankind that God will never destroy the world with flood again.

In both scenarios, man is destroyed by the creator for "SIN". In the former it was for homosexuality and in the latter it was immorality-which covers an array of sins. In truth, there are different examples in the bible where man has been punished for one sin or another. Remember when the Israelites whilst in the wilderness annoyed God and he sent poisonous snakes to afflict them. A lot of people died whilst others were gravely injured. Not to forget the case of Ananias and his wife Sapphira who were struck down dead by God after they lied about profits they made from the sale of their land. Check this: 'for LYING'.

Recently the internet and the nation has run amok with the Senate's stand on Homosexuality and all of a sudden everyone is a righteous muthafucker. Tweeting and chatting absolute nonsense and trying to impress their followers, get others to laugh or earn some yellow bars like their very lives depended on it. Its amazing how hypocritical a lot of us can be about certain issues. 

Being a homosexual does not make one lesser than the rest of us. Its a sin-agreed- same as fornication (which by the way 80% of you reading this blog practice) is a sin, just as adultery, cheating, lying, stealing and even sodomy/anal sex between a guy and a chick is a sin. Do you get it now-a goddamn sin yo. This means that unless you repent of sin, its the same hell fire everyone of those other sinners are going to.

Its not okay for you to make fun of gay people and castigate them because you've never had a loved one, a friend or a family member who was gay. Do you really think they do not feel victimised and discriminated against enough?  Or would you rather i give a list of people who have committed suicide just because they found out that they were gay, coupled with the grief and ostracism the society would subject them to. From Stuart Walker, 28, who was beaten and burned alive after being tied to a lamppost and left there because he was gay to Justin Fashanu (John Fashanu's brother) who committed suicide after being accused of sexual assault against a 17year old as rumours circulated heavily that warrants had been issued for his arrest. His suicide note read " I realised that i had already been presumed guilty. I do not want to give any more embarrassment to my friends and family". It was later found out that there in fact was no warrant out for his arrest. He was the first black footballer to command a One Million pound transfer fee.

Last night as i sat in my room with two of my good friends talking about random stuff, this issue of homosexuality reared its twelve heads. I say twelve heads because everyone's opinion differs from that of the next person. The guy believes that homosexuals should be killed. He says that God gave man the brain to decipher between good and bad. He went on to say that God created Adam + Eve, not Adam + Steve, and that if it was God's desire that man should kpox another man, he would have made a lesser being who looked female. I was astonished. I agree with him totally on certain issues, but my astonishment was on the death penalty. Are you kidding me? Kill a person just because they would rather have sex with members of their own sex? Not because he assassinated a political leader, or was a pedophile, or raped and murdered a whole family of women, or participated in a failed coup. Kill him just for his sexual orientation? That i did not get.

Please, please, please, please, please, in all that we do on this earth as human beings, we should always be our brothers' keepers whilst trying not to judge our neighbour. There are so many psychological and spiritual problems that cause a human being to become homosexual. Its much deeper than the stuff you read on the papers or that you see on television. There are loads of people who practice anal-fucking-sex and still open their mouths to crucify gay people. Its almost laughable. Its none of your business. Think of how to better your own life and make heaven. All sin is sin as far as I'm concerned. So before you go running to that police station to report your neighbour who is/you think is homosexual, with the aim of getting the Twenty Thousand Naira reward, just remember this: They don't make air conditioned rooms in hell.

Oh wow!!!! I still do not support homosexuals. its just so fucking hard to imagine any type of anal sex, even between boys and girls. Gross gross gross.

Hazel said...

"All sin is sin...". Fullstop. I've always said that folks should learn to judge less. It could be you kpoxing a butthole and then what happens? Will you still seek the death penalty?!

I do not support gays. Heck, I do not ever understand it. But to each his or her own. The end game is heaven. The race is very much individual!

i think the whole bill passing is uncalled for. like how many nigerians come out and say they are gay and they want to get married? the act in itself is a shame in nigeria. 14 years abi? think they should pass a bill to sentence old men that sleep with young girls too. mtcheww

Fuchk this stupid post. How crazy is this. Gay people should be hung on their livers to dry. Grown men fucking each other is not only wrong, its nauseating.

I understand your point of view, but how a grown ass nigger gon' put his big old dick in my butt hole, or any men's them for that matter. Each to his own. Aint no difference with couples who enjoy anal sex and all that. Each to his own. No need for hypocricy though. we all get skeletons.

Nice piece. My sentiments exactly. I equally discussed this with a lawyer who has had experience with other african countries with similar laws. The tendency seems to be that people commit atrocities ranging from 'corrective' rape to murder on the basis of similar laws and sexual difference. Homosexuality i dislike, but hypocrisy is worse i think.

You've said it all. I also think people should mind their business and as they say, live and let live.

Hey Phury!!! I think you hit the nail right on the head! We should not condone gay behaviour but we as humamns are also not in a position to pass judgement on other people. We should hate the sin, not the sinner!

Mz.T said...

Totally love this post, you've said it all and well... Gonna re-blog it to my website if you don't mid!

Thanks!

Laurenta said...

Going to reblog this pls and thankyou

thank you o Phury, homosexuality is as much a sin as "jumping a traffic light". The same punishment is meted out to both. Unfortunately, and maybe this is part of the devil's architecture, the world tends to sensationalize homosexuality and forget the other seemingly mundane sins, without remembering that the consequence for all sins is the same.

Gigi said...

Thank you very much!

I can't judge what people do under their roofs but the issue of same sex marriage is different. you can't force the govt to give legal backing relationship, the same way people who want to practice polygamy are jailed.

Well I really like this post. A lot of of don't even know our weaknesses until we find ourselves in some kind of situations. Some people don't even know they are gay until they have a date with serious alcohol,of which dey blame their actions on the innocent drink. I know a babe who went with her date for a truth or dare game with their friends, and after a few bottles and dares she was having sex with one of the girls in the gathering(she had sworn she would never touch a girl even if her life depended on it,and dats y d guy set her up).Now tell me if she dint have it in her ,how come she took the bull by its horns. Let's not throw stones into the market square,it may hit our relatives or boomerang us. Let God in his infinite wisdom be the Judge.

Human sexuality is neither black nor white. A lot of gray splotches exist in virtually all humans. A school of thought would say unusually early exposure to sexual materials could greatly unsettle the brain's biochemisty of a child (who at puberty may likely develop interest in same gender before post puberty solidifies their sexual orientation) leading to 'un-natural' sexual orientation later in life.

Another school of thought believes that all humans have bi-tendencies.

Another says gays and lesbians are born with a part of their hypothallamus dysfunctional

Another says contact with an out-of-the-closet gay/lesbian is likely to mar an individual permanently. Thus, gay 'breed' gay

Whichever school of thought you identify yourself with, these people are also human. Zibah has 2 dear male friends struggling with homosexuality so zibah understands.
It easy to crucify, its not easy to be crucified. Not every gay wants to be/understand why they are attracted to the same sex.
Erm...Zibah would refrain from dabbling into religious doctrinaire.
Cheers
