Nigerian bishop charges US forced liberal sexual agenda as price for aid against terrorists

November 16, 2016

A Nigerian bishop has charged that American policy-makers would not provide help against Boko Haram terrorists unless the African country accepted birth control and homosexuality.

“There has been an inordinate alarm about the exploding populations in Africa,” said Bishop Emmanuel Badejo of Oyo, in a conversation with the Aleteia site. He charged the US with “ideological colonization,” and explained:

The United States actually said it would help Nigeria with Boko Haram only if we modify our laws concerning homosexuality, family planning, and birth control. It’s very clear that a cultural imperialism exists.

    This is a typical requirement put on aid requests by US AID agency. It is a corrupt agency run by corrupt leaders. Bravo for the Nigerian Bishop.

    If you recall, the bold bishops of Nigeria shook their fist in the face of contemplated U.S. and U.N. sanctions at the start of the current U.S. Administration when the "fundamental" transformers sought to impose their decadent will on the African people. "We will not bow down before the beast of sexual immorality, even if it costs us our U.N. subsidies," they shouted. "Keep your grubby fingers out of our internal affairs," was the rallying cry. Bold, certain, even "rigid" defiance of coercion.
