Nimba County Senator Prince Y. Johnson is claiming that there are plans to legalize gay practices in Liberia.

He alleged that a foreign government, campaigning for gay rights across the African continent is behind the move.

According to him, that country is sponsoring homosexuals and Lesbians to take over state power here in 2017.

Senator Johnson indicated that the practice would be legalized when these individuals win the 2017 elections as president and representatives.

In a sermon delivered at the Christ Chapel of Faith Ministries behind Liberia Broadcasting System (LBS) in Paynesville Sunday, Senator Johnson called on Christians to resist these individuals by not voting gay candidates during the 2014 and 2017 elections.

Although Senator Johnson did not name the foreign government, but alleged that the country and its collaborators in Liberia are looking for leaders who are homosexuals and lesbians to impose on Liberians.

The Senator's statement could provoke public debate amid growing anti-gay sentiments in the country.

"You need to stand your ground in opposing it. They are looking for a successor to replace President Sirleaf. They are looking for leaders who would lead Liberia outside of God's plan," Senator Johnson alleged.

He believes that God is not going to accept that, and noted that Liberia will resist even if all of them should be dragged to The Hague for opposing gay practices here.

The Nimba County Senator observed that Liberia is not 'looking for man and man' and indicated that in the Garden of Eden, God instituted marriage between two opposite sex.

"God made Adam and Eve. He made man to marry to woman so that they can produce children. God didn't make man to marry man," he said.

According to him "they have taken their gay campaign all over. They have been to Ghana, Nigeria, Uganda, threatening to block aids to countries that oppose gay marriage, but these countries have told them to take back their loans," Senator Johnson noted.

Preaching further, Senator Johnson called on President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf to accept God to enable her protect the country against homosexuals and lesbians.

He is also calling on the National Legislature not to pass any instrument legalizing gay practices in the country.

Senator Johnson believes that the enactment of gay law would destroy the country's culture and tradition.

Western countries including the United States and Great Britain have to withhold aid from African countries that enact anti-gay laws.
