The Sunday Nation is reporting that not everyone is pleased with President Obama's recent endorsement of same-sex marriage-- particularly in Kenya, where the president has close family ties.
Speaking to the Nation in Mombasa, Council of Imams and Preachers Organising Secretary Sheikh Mohammed Khalifa accused President Obama of playing god by legalizing what "God Himself objects".
“Simply because he has risen to be the President of a super power does not mean he can now start acting as God. He is nothing in the eyes of God and his plans will not succeed just like those who preceded him in such plans,” said Sheikh Khalifa.
He further accused the Kenya Human Rights Commission of propagating western values at the expense of religion by propagating for same sex marriages and abortion.
“God created man and woman so that we can procreate. How come we now want to behave worse than dogs who do not go for their own gender but know the difference between the two?” asked Sheikh Khalifa [Emphasis added].
However, the LA Times is reporting that one gay activist from Kenya said he was "very excited," calling Obama a "courageous leader."
"It shows that society has evolved, that our leaders need to evolve, that this needs to be domesticated here in Africa, and in Kenya..." he said.
