Rep. Bhofal Chambers (Maryland) has
revived the momentarily latent debate over gay practice or same sex marriage by asking President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf on Saturday to provide a clear position on the issue.
In remarks at the formalization of the Fellowship of Christian Lawmakers at the Capitol Building, Rep. Chambers insisted the necessity for the President and heads of religious institutions to clearly declare their positions on gay practice with its attending same sex marriage.
The lawmakers said they decided to form the fellowship that would formalize prayer services at the Capitol Building which has been affected by deaths of their colleagues, the latest being Rep. Moses Tandanpollie.
Members of the fellowship denounced same sex marriage as “immoral”, citing how fire from heaven destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah due to the wickedness of inhabitants of those towns in ancient Palestine (Gen. 19:24).
They also invited gay activist Archie Ponpon, now in a hideout, for prayers and counseling to relieve him from his immoral thoughts and beliefs.
The same debate intensified in the country last year especially after the United States and other Western countries insisted it as being part of human rights, and allotted funds toward improving it where gays and lesbians are ostracized for practicing their sexual attitudes.
