European Parliament votes to impose heavy sanctions against pro-family African nations
ABUJA, Nigeria, March 14, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) - On Thursday, the European Parliament voted to recommend heavy economic sanctions, the denial of travel visas, the withdrawing of foreign aid, as well as force the isolation from the international community of African nations that refuse to heel to the EU’s homosexual agenda.
During the debate at the European Parliament, French socialist Marie-Christine Vergiat and Dutch Liberal MEP Marietje Schaake both laid blame for the pro-family laws in Nigeria and Uganda on “evangelists from the United States.”
Meanwhile in the capitol of Nigeria, the United Nations High Commissioner on Human Rights, Navi Pillay met with determined resistance to her advocacy for the homosexual lifestyle.
Addressing the UN delegation in Nigeria, the attorney general of the Nigerian federal government, Mohammed Adoke, emphasized that Nigeria’s laws “do not criminalize individual sexual orientation,” but explained that the focus of the law is “the discouragement of same-sex marriage which is a reflection of the overwhelming beliefs and cultural values of the Nigerian people.”

In a 2013 national opinion poll, 92 percent of Nigerians polled rejected same-sex “marriage.” The Nigerian Catholic bishops and the Muslim community in Nigeria also publicly supported the law as a reflection of their cultural beliefs and as an integral part of the defense of Nigeria’s moral health.
The bill, called the “Same-sex Marriage Prohibition Act” was signed into law by President Goodluck Jonathan in January. Since then, the EU, a vast array of international organizations and the United Nations have attempted to force the international community to take drastic measures in order to impose the homosexual agenda upon Nigeria and other African nations that have resisted the push to normalize homosexual conduct.
The Nigerian law prohibits homosexual marriages or unions, adoption by homosexuals, and the dissemination of homosexual propaganda.
Mr. Mohammed emphasized that far from being something that Nigerians desire, the promotion and normalization of homosexuality could “bring down any government should the government toy with the opinion of the vast majority of the people.”
The UN High Commissioner stated that the Nigerian law “may deter LGBT persons from taking up HIV education, prevention treatment and care services as well as civil society and religious groups from implementing such services.”
Yet scientific findings show that “no other group of comparable size in society experiences such intense and widespread pathology” as homosexuals.
On a day when the European Parliament still could not come to any consensus on the imposition of any real sanctions on Russia for the geopolitical crisis in Crimea, it appeared clear that the European Union would continue to attempt to force African nations to adopt its homosexual agenda with every tool at its disposal, including harsh economic sanctions.
