Throughout his presidency, Barack Obama has been plagued by rumors that he was born in Kenya, as he has arguably displayed more loyalty to the African nation than to the U.S. itself.
However, Kenyans have just turned on Obama in a major way, and they aren’t afraid to speak out about it.
Though he repeatedly promised that he was only in favor of traditional marriage, Obama has recently started becoming an outspoken supporter of same-sex marriage, and he is now trying to inflict the practice on African countries. This has enraged the Christian nation of Kenya.
Recently, 700 Kenyan priests came together to form the Evangelical Alliance of Kenya, and they have demanded that Obama stop trying to force them to abandon Christianity and support gay marriage.
“President Barack Obama is welcome to visit Kenya this summer — but please, leave the preaching to us,” said the coalition of religious leaders, according to Conservative Tribune.
“We would like to send a strong message to the U.S. president that the homosexuality debate should not become part of his agenda, as it has been his tendency whenever he comes to Africa,” added Bishop Mark Kariuki, leader of the Evangelical Alliance.
News of this comes at a bad time for Obama, as he is preparing to visit Kenya this summer. Judging from this, it doesn’t look like he will be receiving his usual hero’s welcome.
“[Homosexuality] goes against our customs and traditions,” Kenya’s Deputy President William Ruto said recently during a speech at St. Gabriel’s Catholic Church in Maili Kumi. “We believe in God … This nation, the nation of Kenya, is sovereign and God-fearing.”
Someday, maybe Obama will realize that people don’t like being bossed around, especially when it comes to their religion.
