Scripture Union calls upon the Federal Government and legislators to refrain from supporting same-sex relationships.

 Scripture Union calls upon the Federal Government and legislators to refrain from supporting same-sex relationships.

The Scripture Union Nigeria's stance reflects a broader global debate surrounding LGBTQ+ rights and their compatibility with religious beliefs and legal frameworks. In many countries, including Nigeria, there are ongoing discussions and conflicts regarding the recognition and acceptance of same-sex relationships.

The Same-Sex Marriage Prohibition Act of 2014 in Nigeria criminalizes same-sex unions and related activities, reflecting a conservative approach to LGBTQ+ rights within the legal system. This law is aligned with traditional Christian values and beliefs held by organizations like the Scripture Union Nigeria.

The union's concern about the promotion of LGBTQ+ ideology by certain religious and political leaders in the Western world echoes debates about cultural imperialism and the clash of values between different regions and belief systems. The call to resist the legalization of lesbianism and bisexuality is part of a larger conversation about societal norms, morality, and human rights.

At its core, this issue raises questions about individual freedoms, the role of religion in public policy, and the ongoing tension between traditional values and evolving social attitudes. The Scripture Union Nigeria's position reflects a commitment to preserving what they see as the sanctity of family life, rooted in their interpretation of Biblical teachings.
