An anti-gay campaigner, New Citizen Movement, Incorporated or NECIM, has reaffirmed its commitment to fighting against legalization of Gay Rights in Liberia.
NECIM said in a press release distributed here Sunday, 8 November it renewed the commitment over the weekend in a specially organized meeting at the Victory Temple Church in Paynesville City outside Monrovia.
“The meeting commended the Liberian Senate for passing an Act to outlaw the practice of homosexualism and restrict the family union to the marriage between a man and a woman in Liberia and called on the House of Representatives to concur with the House of Senate to show the world our support for the traditional family that has set the African society apart and kept it together”, the release signed by NECIM executive director Rev. Cleopatra J. Watson, read.
It said the meeting chaired by Rev. Dr. Kortu K. Brown, head of NECIM’s Board of Directors, also commended all stakeholders, including ecumenical, evangelical, Islamic and civil society leaders across Liberia for their continuous support, and called for more concerted actions to ensure that Gay Rights is not legalized in the country because the Movement and the Liberian people reject the practice.
The New Citizen Movement, Inc. said it launched the a anti-gay rights campaign about three years ago in collaboration with both Christian and Muslim leaders on Mandela Field, Point Four Junction on Bushrod Island, collecting thousands of signatures to influence public action against Gay Rights.
