The British Prime Minister, Theresa May has called on all Commonwealth nations with restrictive laws on same-sex marriage to relax such laws.

May said this on Tuesday while addressing leaders of Commonwealth nations at the ongoing Commonwealth Head of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in Westminster, United Kingdom, on Tuesday, TheCable‘s Tiyani Mayowa reported.

The British Prime Minister noted that no Commonwealth nation should have laws restricting same-sex marriage.

According to her, the foundation of such laws in the Commonwealth nations originated from the British, who have since discovered the error in their ways and made amends.

She added that the laws were wrong.

May’s pronouncement is perceived as a big boost for the LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer) community, especially in Africa, which has suffered marginalisation for years.

MADAM, AS A WOMAN AND AS SMART AS YOU ARE. IN ALL HONESTY, WOULD YOU ALLOW ANY OF YOUR SIBLINGS TO ENGAGE IN SUCH IRRESPONSIBLE LIFE STYLE? FIRST OF ALL, BEFORE YOU MAKE SUCH IMMORAL AND UNGODLY STATEMENT. CHECK WITH THE HOLY BIBLE AND THE HOLY QURAN. IF YOU FIND ANYWHERE GOD PERMITS SUCH DEVILISH PRACTICE, THEN YOU CAN TALK. OTHERWISE, JUST SIT DOWN AND BE QUIET. SECONDLY, IT'S AN INSULT TO ASK ANYONE OR ANY GROUP OF PEOPLE TO ACCEPT SUCH INDECENT PRACTICE. BEFORE YOU PROPOSE SUCH DIRTY ACT TO ANY COUNTRY, FIRST CHECK WITH THEIR HISTORY AND CULTURE (VERY IMPORTANT). WE MIGHT BE GOING THROUGH SOME ECONOMIC, POLITICAL AND SOCIAL SETBACKS IN AFRICA, BUT WE ARE NOT AS CHEAP AND AS STUDIED AS YOU THINK. AFRICANS ARE HIGHLY RELIGIOUS, TRADITIONAL AND SMART PEOPLE. HOMOSEXUALITY, SAME SEX MARRIAGE ARE BASICALLY UNACCEPTABLE IN OUR SOCIETY. THE WESTERN SOCIETY CAN PRACTICE HOMOSEXUALITY FOR AS LONG AS THEY WANT, AS MUCH AS THEY WANT. AFRICA IS OUT OF THE QUESTION. WE HAVE ENOUGH TROUBLING ISSUES TO DEAL WITH. NO ARGUMENT, MARRIAGE IS BETWEEN A MAN AND A WOMAN. MAY THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY FORGIVE YOU.
