- "Biologically we have been created to procreate between a male and a female, this is attacking our norms, and humanity."
- Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua attributed same-sex marriages and relationships to satanic beliefs.
Anglican Archbishop Jackson Ole Sapit has said the Supreme Court ruling that allowed the registration of LGBTQ associations has to be reversed by all means.
Speaking during an interview with Citizen TV, Ole Sapit said the act of same-sex marriage and relationships is illegal in the country, as it is an attack on humanity.
"I want to call the Christian family and all of us to stand up and say no to this because it will eat up into the gains we have made in bringing a moral society based on values," he said.
Ole Sapit further added that the association will now want the court to legalise the act of same sex as they will argue in the line of discrimination.
"The next one will be we don't want to be discriminated against because they have been recognised as an association," he added.
"Biologically we have been created to procreate between a male and a female, this is attacking our norms and humanity."
Ole Sapit's sentiments come days after other national leaders were triggered by the ruling, causing national outrage as the act of same-sex relationships is being condemned.
President William Ruto termed homosexuality and same-sex marriage as immoral and unconstitutional and pledged they would not be tolerated in Kenya under his watch.
Ruto said he respects the apex court decision but there is no room for same-sex marriage in Kenya.
The act, he noted, flies in the face of the country’s laws and societal norms that make Kenya and will not be tolerated.
“You know me very well, I am a God-fearing man and whatever happened at the court, even if we respect the court, our culture, values, Christianity and Islam cannot allow women to marry each other, or men to marry fellow men,” he said.
Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua attributed same-sex marriages and relationships to satanic beliefs.
“Those are satanic beliefs, and we do not want them. That contradicts what we believe in,” Gachagua noted.
Last month, Supreme Court judges said it would be unconstitutional to limit the right to associate through denial of registration of an association purely on the basis of the sexual orientation of the applicants.
"The decision by the board was discriminatory."
Court said that all persons, whether heterosexual, lesbian, gay, intersex or otherwise, will be subject to sanctions if they contravene existing laws including sections 162, 163 and 165 of the Penal Code.
