Catholic Bishops mince no words on homosexuality

Bishop Luke Msusa: Homosexuality is evil.

Roman Catholic Bishops in Malawi have described homosexuality as “evil” and have argued government not to bow down to international pressure by legalizing same sex marriages.

Speaking at Kamuzu Palace on Friday, Chairperson of Catholic Bishops in Malawi Thomas Luke Msusa called on government not to give in to demands of foreign pressure.

“We said this as a church, because our doctrines do not allow these practices and Malawi is a sovereign state, I think it can make decisions independently,” said Msusa.

Meanwhile, the Malawi Human Rights Commission (MHRC) has suspended a moratorium that the country signed during the Joyce Banda era.

In a statement, MHRC says the signing of the moratorium was not approved by the legislative arm of government as President Banda rushed to sign so as to gain donor favours.

Meanwhile, the human rights body has urged government to draft a bill to be tabled in the national assembly as a way of solving the controversial issue.

  11. if we argue that ths z a GOD fearing nation, some of Malawians dont believe in God,as it is also there freedom to belief, and so, they are free to be homosexuals. If we claim ths is a christian nation, then how true is that statement? We have nonchristians here, we have muslims, we have budaists here, and even non believers. If we cling to the religous dogma, the answer is simple, ‘ God alone will judge and punish them that do sodomy,but men shud not stop them as if they are God themselves to stop and pin point wrongs and error of their fellow humans. Who are you men, to enlarge others sins and belittle your own.’ Let the arguement be made nt on the side of religion and culture,but on principality, otherwise, we will fail ths battle against homosexuality.

  12. Azungu Kwao Kudatha.Ife Amalawi Zimenezi Ayi.Kod amene amagonana okhaokhao.Adabadwa Munjira imeneyiyo? Nthawi Yakwana Yosanyengererana.Awo atsamundawo Ngat Ndindalama apite Nazo Uko! Say No Homosexuality!

  13. I feel like we’re not aware of the hardships our fellow Malawians are passing through due to lack of Donor aid, no matter what Malawi can’t do without Donor Aid- that is why we should bow down & legalised it.

    in Malawi we have high-middle-low class people, some can do without Donor aid while some depends on it. So Malawians shouldn’t suffer cause of few individuals who’re practicing it.

    We don’t have poor bishops in Malawi, when they get sick Mwaiwathu, MASM, etc some even fly to RSA for medication while poor suffrerings Malawians will visit a Health Centre where there’s no drugs due to withheld of Donor Aid.

    Tawakavu tingafwanga chifukwa chamwasambazi yayi………!!!!!!!!!!!

  14. Thank you bishops.Now the issue is in the hands of Peter Munthalika to voice out his opinion to conclude the altercation among Malawians.I felt sorry when I heard some priests who funded by these stupid foreigners to support sodomy.Mr president what did you say on that particular time(presidential debate) when you said that you gonna let people to decide.Up to now don’t you know that Malawians have decided to reject sodomy? Are you dead alive?

  15. Aliyense ali ndi ufulu opanga chimene akufuna ngati uli uchimo azalangidwa yekha osati inu timabishop tadyeranu!majancthani imweeeee.inu chikukukhuzani ndichan atayeni ndizawo zimenezo iyaa.

  17. Democracy says the majority should rule not minority.when you see minority wants to rule it means it’s no longer democracy therefore police should arrest those who are promoting minority rights as the are against our constitution

  18. Kodi mai ake iyeyo ndi john kapena ndi peter komaso ngati akufuna atilangize lemba lomwe mulungu analoleza ma ukwati amenewa,asaiwale kuti mulungu akumuona pazomwe akuchita ndipo asanamulange mulungu tiyamba ndiife kumuotcha ameneyi

A male dog his feelings is in a female dog, the male caw, the male snake, the male lizard, the baboon, the male pig, the male goat,the male frog n there is male n female plugs that’s need to join together to make things work, y a human being aman should have sex with another man though you don’t even call it a sex, you gave another name homesexual, can we have a baby from ass? Let him Peter Mutharika do that with his wife

  20. Christians lets engaged into prayer and fasting that God should preserve our country from the wrath sodom n Gomorrah had. let’s pray that those entertaining it the Lord God Almighty should halt them.this is a spiritual battle and as we are the light of the world lets pray against this spirit in Jesus Name Amen

  23. how come God rescued loti out of sodom and gomola yet the same thing was happening there. one man’s sin will not make his neighbour be purnished unless he does it too.

  24. Silver and gold belongs 2 almighty God not america, so its time 4 Malawi 2 seek God’ face not that of america and virginia palma.Malawi has been called a God fearing country, this is the tym 2 show de world dat we really love God and fear Him. Mr president dont be afraid if God is 4 us nobody wl be against us. The 1st step is 2 arrest uyu mukut ‘trapece’ kut Virginia amuuze zoona bwenz lake obama.

  25. We say NO to homosexuals in MW & God wul punish all those who support it. Some compare it to any sin, that’s total ignorance of God’s word coz if God had to warm Sodom & Gommola with fire, it was bcoz of this nasty behaviour so MW better be careful

  36. Homosexuality may be bad for Malawi but Western countries will attach resumption of direct budgetary support to it. Will the Bishops allow Malawi to continue without direct budgetary support? I know homosexuality is a thorny issue to Malawian culture but all of us including the Bishops are criticising the government for the current state of the economy. We have good values and culture but I think the same will cost us a lot. Osauka alibe mawu. Let’s wait and see. We are not ready to make independent views. Let’s hope the economy improves with our own resources so that we can independently decide on such matters.

Doing things because we want money from donors,saying yes to everything jast because we want money?Which means we can’t find a solution to our poverty?Which means we will be begging forever?Can’t we see the problem of waiting for someone to work for us?Its high time my fellow Malawians lets open our eyes and see,lets join hands and work hard together everything is possible with postive thinking.Many thanks to those who are saying no to gay marriages shall God be with you.Lets join hands and say a big NO! to gay.

  47. No one is above the law. The laws of Malawi doesn’t allow what you call homo or Lesbians thats all. If a bull dog can’t mate with it’s bull dod, what about human being with all senses?

  48. Bravo our clergy.Our focus should mostly be on strengthening the faith of our flock in these hard and trying times. Let the devil’s followers be.Was it not written in the Holly Bible?

  49. Malawian people are u not apeople with culture,are u not apeople with faith, are u not apeople even with african religion,how can you accept homosexuality in your country even If you dnt accept but keep quiet know that you are sinners and will you will rotten in the hell fire

  56. Only if Malawi does not fear God, the gay issues must be supported. God made man and woman to make babies including the uprising devils in the name of gays

    • Mtambo ndi Trapeze ndindani pamaso pa Mulungu kuti aziopsyeza anthu.Sakudziwa kuti akulimbana ndi Wamwambamwamba,OK tiyeni nazoni!tione mapeto ake

    • how come God rescued loti out of sodom and gomola yet the same thing was happening there. one man’s sin will not make his neighbour be purnished unless he does it too.

    • Even these days if God wants to destroy the world from sin, He will only spare His own but gays will never be spared. Mind you, homosexuality was not legalised thus God destroyed those who supported it

  57. The laws of Malawi does not allow gays and lesbians. It is Mtambo and Trapence who should be arrested coz they are against the laws of Malawi by promoting such indecency.Nsamveno wina akufuna Homosexual pano.

  58. Bishop wabisala mbatata koma nsana ukuoneka…zisiru mwasintha liti?kodi simmakwatira why?I thnk mumalamulira mbali inayake yaikulu pazikoli,yu devil….hate yu..
