The Liberia National Student Union (LINSU) is cautioning members of the Legislature to condemn all forms of same sex marriage practices across the country.
“We the national executive members of LINSU call [on] every member of the Legislature to condemn this same sex marriage because it is not only criminal, but a first degree felony,” the group said Monday, 7 January in Monrovia at a press conference.
LINSU wants same sex marriage to be non – billable and punishable by imprisonment for life, with the overwhelming support of over 2.5 million students of Liberia.
LINSU says it has observed that religious credentials and African principles have been engulfed with an argument in relations to the Anti-Gay Law establishment in the motherland.
Dressed in African attire, LINSU president Mohammed Kamara Gandhi says the organization is calling on the Liberian Council of Churches, the Muslim Council, and the student community to stand against same sex for the future of the country.
According to Mr. Gandhi, LINSU was created by an Act of Legislature on January 25, 1957, as the mother organization for all students and student groupings in the country.He says LINSU is charged with the mandate to seek redress when student’s rights are trampled upon, and to monitor the performance of national government.
