Liberia: Prelate Mounts Anti-Gay Campaign

Reverend Dr. Joseph Kortu Brown has strongly argued that “even cats, dogs, chickens” and other animals do not practice gay activities, thereby warning Liberians as Christians to disallow same sex marriage in the country.

The gay and same sex marriage is hardly being campaigned by economically influential nations including America and the Great Britain, tying donors’ aid for weaker countries including Liberia to same sex tolerance. The head pastor of the New Water in the Desert, Rev. Dr. Kortu Brown made the assertion against gay practice at a Sunday worship service at the Free Pentecostal Global Mission Church on 10th Street Sinkor, where he and his wife were honored for “their humanitarian services” to Liberians during and after the civil conflict here.

Shortly after being gowned by the Free Pentecostal Church Sunday, Dr. Brown said “we will not allow man to marry man or woman to marry woman in Liberia.” He told the congregation that he accepted the honor bestowed upon him to urge Liberians to stop being cruel to one another, but to be a help to somebody.

“When God blesses you, bless somebody. One of the problems we have in Liberia is that those who call themselves “big sharks” are too mean [selfish]. Plenty rich people will go to hell because they refuse to help Lazarus,” said Rev. Dr. Brown.

Earlier in his exhortation, the Senior Pastor of the Free Pentecostal Global Mission Church (FPGMC) Rev. Dr. Joseph S.F. Ndaborlor said selfishness “is what has been killing Liberia.”

He spoke from Acts 9:32 to 43 of the Holy Bible, under the theme “Kindness Never Dies.” The Reverend underscored that corruption and greed are centered on selfishness, saying selfish people believe that “what belongs to you is mine; and what is mine is mine.”

Rev. Dr. Ndaborlor wondered how Liberia could graduate from poverty, with arguments that when a batch of corrupt people is removed from offices, they are replaced by a worst corrupt group.

But he suggested that all Liberia needs now is law against corruption, and that those laws must be enforced without fear if the country must be redeemed from poverty.

“Now in Liberia there is no price control; you are priced according to your dress code,” said Rev. Ndaborlor. He told the story of a generous seamstress called Dorcas in the Holy Bible who had sowed clothes and distributed them to widows and other impoverished people.

In the story, Dorcas’ beneficiaries sought her healing when she died, calling on Jesus’ disciples to their aid on grounds that they did not want to lose such a generous person in society.

At the end, the Reverend narrated that one of Jesus’ disciples Peter appeared and asked God to raise Dorcas from the dead, having listened to the widows’ cry.
