Changing Attitude writes that the Nigerian legislature resumed debate of highly controversial anti-gay legislation yesterday, and that Peter Akinola, Primate of Nigeria, is lobying on the bill's behalf.
CA writes: "The version of the Bill presented yesterday is the original "Sani" version that was presented last March. No amendments have been made and the public hearing has not influenced the Bill in anyway. The bill does not take into consideration the views of the Human Rights Committee of the House that the bill will create a fundamental abuse of LGBT human rights. The Committee is understood to be trying to block the Bill and the chair of the Committee reported that they are going to present a minority report."
Davis Mac-Iyalla writes: "Conservative Christians want to use Nigeria as an example to other African countries to demonstrate that anti-gay legislation can be passed which criminalizes all affection and activity between LGBT people.”
