Information just received states that Nigerian house of representative has passed a bill banning gay activities in the country with a maximum jail term of up to 14years in prison.
If this is signed into by the president,it will further make life miserable for some of us that believes in this as a way of life.
Who will come to our aid to rescue from this inhuman,most wicked law and most senseless law?
