Churches against condom distribution in prisons

133

Evangelical Association of Malawi (EAM) has opposed the move to distribute condoms in prisons across the country saying it will encourage homosexuality.

The development follows calls by Malawi Interfaith AIDS Association (MIAA) to have condoms being distributed to prisoners to reduce the spread of Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) among inmates.

Rev. Kawalala: It will encourage homosexuality

MIAA Executive Director Robert Ngayaiye expressed optimism that condoms will protect inmates from diseases that are transmitted through sex.

But EAM through its National Chairperson Zacc Kawalala has argued that the move is to promote homosexuality which is forbidden under Malawi laws.

“The first question to ask is, condoms for what? You cannot promote distribution of condoms this means you are also promoting homosexuality,” observed Kawalala.

Malawian laws prohibit gay sex though people are rarely prosecuted for the act.

  1. Let Prisoners enjoy safe homesexuality than spreading HIV among themselves. Thats bad reaction even Churches themeselves are enganged in devilsh acts. Ngati alipo mwa ma Church Leaders amene sanachimwepo atole mwala agende ma Prisonous

  2. then u the EAM find asolution if condoms r not spread but do u thick prizonaz can stop sex bcoz condomz r not available? Or it lead to spread of HIV

  3. Malawi24 Do your research well before posting things. Reverend Zacc is not the National Chairperson of EAM, he is the Ethics Peace & Justice Commission (EPJC) chairperson of EAM & EAM has not produced such a statement.

  4. The one who fears God does not fear contracting STLS l wonder pple say homesexual is dangerous/ Hlv za ziiii! only God dangerous & if u dedicate all ur heart, soul, minds, strengths to God biy hearing His voice, reconise understand, keep it, & doing it u will see that God is dangerous where are u going my fellow christians u are like in the vehicle of this world without knowing where u are going to, from today read the holly scriptures & hear His word & challeging u will not be the same; have eternal wonderful tomorrow hallelua !!!!!

  5. Homosexual is there including rape inside prisons andd if the gov.t thinks condoms may help. Then why not somebody’s life may be saved. And you so called opposers some of you are even doing it secretly . God is watching your hypocrisy

  8. Firstly know that homosexuality is taking place in all our prisons…. That we cant deny… They have no option there…. To leave them like that i think its inhumane…. Its better to distribute the condoms…. Lemme ask you Church leaders.. What have you done to save them????… Ndiye poti mabungwe akupangapo kanthu then musokoserepo????….

  12. Instead Of Distributing Ufa Wa Phala Ndi Wa Nsima Ku Prison Basi Ma Condom For What Anthu Oti Alibe Nthawi Yofunsilana Nkumanyengana ! A Malawi Tulo !

  13. The very best thing is to avoid sin before avoiding diseases and death.
    Condom distribution is one way of encouraging sin both in prison and communities.
    To you who says, there is no God, I think you are the one which the Holy Bible says, A fool says there is no God. You are the one.

  14. Hahaha…..homo mpaka Ku user Condom?…..the issue is to find the way of ending this practice in prison not by distributing condoms thus not aSolution Coz as far as iknow homesexuallity is much danger than the normal sex,so I agree with the Church in against this move

  15. I support the exercise of distributing condoms in prisons. The govt and all human rights organisations know that same sex does happen in our prisons. And HIV/AIDS is rampant in prisons. Prisoners have all their rights intact with them. Besides, they have right to life. And therefore they cannot be left to die of HIV/AIDS as if there are no interventions. Preventive measures are meant for them as well. Pressure on medical services can be normalized if prisoners are given condoms to use in prisons when doing illegal same sex activities. So I strongly support the idea of distributing condoms to prisoners.

  16. My say on da issue is dat whether they distribute the condoms or nt …….prisoners will still indulge in the malpractice so i’d rather we jst stayed out of this as christians…..honestly…….!!!!

  17. Vuto ndiloti ampingo mukungotsutsa pomwe simukuyamba mwaunikira unve omwe uli kundende amuna okhaokha kunyengana or ufule palibe okuteteza nde chomwe mukutsutsa ndi chani mukufuna akundendewo azipatsana Matenda ndibwino agawe makondomuwo vg uto la. Dziko lapansili lachuluka uve malo moti mulandu oba mbatata muwugamule mukugowasiya anthu kundende thoooooooooo

  18. Sorry kwa omangidwa osalakwa,but what I know is that all prisoners have no right to have condom or somebody 4 sexual intercouse, if u want u should obey the law b4 any case’ Maufulu ena mudzala nawo misbehaviour

  19. Spiritual understanding is what we are lacking as Christians but to a Christian who is aware of this time we are living in will never take part in such initiative, another problem is this initiative will increase not only homosexuality but also immorality a thing that the bible does not want, and I believe that the ones distributing are the agents of devil

  20. According to the word of God ,Homosexuality is a symbol of a cursed person by God himself. Those people who are prison what the need is the Word of God, NOT CONDOMS FOR WHAT USE .Romans 1:24-32 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
    Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
    For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
    And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
    And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
    Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
    Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
    Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
    Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

    • OH! WONDERFUL! JAMES KUMWENDA, INDEED IN SPIRIT U HAVE SPOKEN TO THIS NATION OF WHICH SOME HAVE STOOD-UP NOT TO OBEY GOD’S LAWS BUT SHOWING WHAT THEY R NOW COME OPENLY TO B KNOWN BY GOD’S PEOPLE: THEREFORE THE BIBLE SAYS,”HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THEM. {2 TIMOTHY 3:1-9} AMEN!!!

    • Do you preach in prisons?
      You grew up knowing that prisoners fuck each other, so what have you done so far to help the situation?
      Or just talk talk and more talking as you do nothing to change any life in this world.

    • Mabvuto Samson ,we have churches and people who are preaching the Gospel in prisons .you can have your personal investigation, of what am telling you.

  21. Thus bad reaction from E.A.M because prisonaz are prone to diseases that spread though sexual intercourse.Anthu oipa inu osafunira amzanu zabwino coz ma prisonaz are the same as anybody else & they have the right to enjoy all human rights

  22. Homosexualiy is very high in prisons so they need to be protected please azibusa don’t misled the people thats why you pastors a lot of you are dying with AIDS

  23. The problem is; churches have no standard interpretation of their scriptures and whoever comes with what trash, as long as he/she has money, the church follows the what. Now this is about condom distribution in prison which implies the church’s acceptance of homosexuality just bcoz the issue was brought by health rights activists, and without scrutiny, the church has accepted homosexuality by taking part in the distribution of condoms. That’s why I usually say; there is no God, religion is just a hoax just to make people united for the benefit of the bad at its own time

  24. Mabungwe enawa mituyawo simagwila ukuziwa kuti kumakhala amuna okhaokha kumakalandilisa condom akuganiza bwanji Mr pulezident mukungoyang’ana zofoilazi ?
