Anglican Church of Nigeria continues to persecute LGBT people

Same sex marriage, apart from being ungodly, is unscriptural, unnatural, unprofitable, unhealthy, un-cultural, un-African and un-Nigerian. It is a perversion, a deviation and an aberration that is capable of engendering moral and social holocaust in this country. It is also capable of existincting [sic] mankind and as such should never be allowed to take root in Nigeria. Outlawing it is to ensure the continued existence of this nation. The need for doing this is urgent, compelling, and imperative.
--Archbishop Peter Akinola of Nigeria, in a position paper linked on Thinking Anglicans

Additionally, the Episcopal Cafe links to evidence that the Church of Nigeria is busing people to hearings in Abuja.

This needs to be said plainly: what Peter Akinola and the Church of Nigeria are doing is evil, is not Christian and is not sanctioned by God.

Even if God condemned homosexuality, God would not sanction violating the human rights of LGBT people.
