Anti-gay homophobes from around the world met in South Africa, a country where the constitution specifically includes LGBT equality, issuing a declaration opposing same-sex marriage and families. According to Mamba Online, The World Congress of Families Regional Conference, which took place last week at The Westin hotel in Cape Town, was hosted by the recently formed International Organization for the Family (IOF), an offshoot of the notoriously homophobic World Congress of Families; designated a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center in the US.
The conference saw the launch (appallingly, on International Human Rights Day) of the IOF’s “Cape Town Declaration“. The manifesto has been signed by hundreds who view same-sex marriage as an aberration that’s a threat to “traditional” families and humanity in general.
Ambassador Uche Ajulu-Okeke of Nigeria took part in the shameful signing of the declaration, ensuring that the myth about homosexuality which birthed persecutory legislation in her own country, in essence, defecated on her host country”s constitution, and populace, when noting:
Speaking to Vanguard, she warned that, “Youths should be sensitized on the dangers of homosexuality”. Ajulu-Okeke went on to further absolute lies, declaring: “Many Nigerian youths abroad are now becoming gay because of economic inducement, either to legalize their documents or to get jobs and they bring back diseases like HIV/AIDS back to the country.”
It is this very type of hateful lie, cloaked in the credibility of a top diplomat, that incites the horrific trend of violence toward gays, lesbians and transgender people, all across Africa.
The Declaration affirms “healthy marriages” as “the conjugal bond of man and woman” and commits the signatories to “firmly resisting every push to redefine marriage: to include same-sex or group bonds, or sexually open or temporary ones.”
The declaration, clearly seeking to find favour in countries in which homosexuality is seen as a foreign import, also rails against the “cultural imperialism of Western powers whose governments seek nothing less than the ideological colonisation of the family”.
Brian Brown, President of IOF, commented to right-wing site Breitbart News: “Forcing the agenda of same-sex ‘marriage’ on nations by manipulation of foreign aid or the like is a deplorable practice.”
His statement is a blatant distortion that continues to be perpetuated by anti-LGBT campaigners. There is no evidence of any country using the threat of withdrawing foreign aid to force acceptance of same-sex marriage rights on another country, anywhere in the world.
The declaration concludes with the statement: “Bowing to no earthly power, using every just measure, we shall not falter or flag until the truth about marriage is embraced in our laws and honoured in our lands.”
Currently facing embarrassment is the hotel chain which housed the hateful conference:
Following a flood of outrage from the LGBTI community, Cape Town’s The Westin hotel has apologized for hosting an international conference of homophobes.
The event for the World Congress of Families, an offshoot of an LGBTI hate group, took place on Saturday at the hotel.
At the conference, delegates from around the world and South Africa declared their commitment to fight marriage equality and same-sex families. READ MORE.

Homosexuality is an evil africa will never accept and you keep your homosexuality in your country u will not impose your perversion on us, whatever you stand for is disgraceful and disgusting a man was created for a woman not another man. If homosexuality was what God wanted he woild have made a way for men to produce children when they are in a same sex,marriage but its clear it cant happen , your being an adovate for homosexuals and advocating for homosexuality to be legalised will never happen we are not gays and we will not enterain your rubbish
“Homosexuality is an evil” is pure Colonialism . It was not until Africa was colonized with its Colonialists Bible that Africans started being enslaved through White Man’s religion…. and of course the religion part may be acceptable to some – but surely not t\at the expense of tradition? . Unfortunately many Africans have completely ditched tradition and culture to welcome the Colonialists. You seem to do the same. You see before those Colonialists cane along, no one in Africa cared that much about who slept with who. In fact Sexual relations between tribesmen at war was very comm0n and considered normal when there were no woman around for months. These relations were intended to relieve pressure and stress and increase bonding between the men. It was never intended for procreation. However when the white colonialists brought Africans their Bible, they told you that sex was only for procreation., Yet many do not even obey that – and have sex for fun and relief in any event. So there is a bit of hypocrisy in your argument and a denial that you are TRULY African because you place the DICTA of the Colonialists ahead of your true culture…
To say homosexuality – is unAfrican and against your culture is the lie and myth you have swallowed from the Colonialists who controlled you and still do so… with their Bible…
To say homosexuality – is unAfrican and against your culture is to deny your equality and humanity. There are natural sexualities which include same sex attraction. If you deny that then you are saying that you are not human… All humans no matter what continent you born on,. no latter color of skin, are the same and its been proved that homosexuality as a natural attraction on the scale of sexuality.
Most importantly – instead of leaving hateful comments – try and look at what scares you- try and look at true real and authentic Africa- – and if you still want to USE the Bible as your guiding light / TORAH then truly read the TORAH where it expresses that we are all G-d’s children and that the foremost principle – also embraced by Jesus – is to love and be kind to all G-d’s children and creation.
And by the way… think of this – Lesbians and gay men have figured out a way to procreate – using surrogates and sperm donors and insemination. So it it seems to me that G-d does not care much HOW his children are made – just so long as they ARE MADE!!!
It seems to me you should allow yourself to have more FAIOTH in G-d and G-d’s will.
