From the Kenya Star
Anglican Church of Kenya Archbishop Reverend Eliud Wabukala has said the institution of marriage is under attack from both foreign and local forces.
In a statement, Rev Wabukala said, marriage is under attack from outside the country with the West and sections of the Anglican Church pressuring the ACK to treat homosexuality as a human right. Wabukala stated that “ this is to cheapen rights so that they become a demand that we tolerate individual preferences that are destructive of our moral fabric.”
He further termed that same sex marriage which recently became legal in England and the homosexuality as an attack on human identity as male and female created in the image of God. “To use the law of the land to legislate for an activity which is against the natural order, and consistently described as sinful in the Scriptures, is a very serious step which strikes at the heart of family life.
It is a repudiation of God and his Word which should make us tremble and cry out for his mercy.” Wabukala added He said within Kenya, marriage is under attack following recent amendments to the Marriage Bill by members of parliament recognizing polygamy.
