Rep. Henry Boimah Fahnbulleh (Montserrado District #4)
is the latest lawmaker to join the chorus of urging President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf to declare a definite position on the gay debate in Liberia.
The Unity Party lawmaker said the President’s stance on the matter was necessary after remaining mum on the matter “for too long”.
In an interview with legislative reporters Tuesday, Rep. Fahnbulleh, also former Secretary General of the UP, said: “The President is not for nor is she against. What does that say? She needs to take a definite position on this issue.
“The fact of the matter is that the President has to take a definite position with respect to the gay issue. Where she chooses to stand in the middle-of-the-road will not speak well for us,” he pointed out.
“I am against gay marriage in our country. We should not allow the infusion of every western concept in our society. We need to make sure that our own tradition and cultures are protected,” Rep. Fahnbulleh declared.
Rep. Bhofal Chambers (Maryland) on Saturday revived the hitherto latent gay debate calling on the President to make a clear-cut declaration on the matter.
He spoke at the formalization of the Fellowship of Christian Lawmakers at the Capitol Building.
