We have said it before and we will say it again. This is a Muslim and Christian country. Both the Holy Quran and the Holy Bible condemn homosexuality just as the scriptures condemn theft, adultery, lying etc. Life-style in The Gambia is one based around Family and Religion. Like God's Adam and Eve, the Family is based around Mother (female), Father (male) and the rest of the extended family. Tony Blair's definition of "marriage" and "family" as being of whatever conjecture (even man and goat!) does not apply in our religious context.
Look, we are not interested in stoning anyone, even homosexuals. What our president is saying, and we agree with him totally is: Ours is a society guided by religious principles.
Those religious principles leave no room for homosexuality. Sex and marriage in our culture is between man and woman. Sex and marriage between a man and a man, a woman and a woman, is viewed as irreligious and gross by the vast majority of our people here (just as in the West would view sex and marriage between a man and a goat)!
So, please respect our religions, cultures and traditions by keeping your homosexuality out of our country.
