According to Rev Peter Adebiyi, Bishop of the Lagos West Diocese of the communion, "we have told our people to leave the US Church [of gay bishop Gene Robinson] and give us time to set up our own because our members are spread across the states in the US.
The proposed church is to be called, "Church of Nigeria in the US" (Punch 26/11/03, pg 4).In his
reaction, the Methodist Archbishop of Abuja, Most Rev Sunday Ola-Makinde said his
Church was in full support of the Anglican communion's action, affirming that homosexuality was not Christian-like.He went further to declare that the African Church in general would boycott the World Council of Churches anytime it found a gay bishop or even a gay priest in attendance.
"A time has come when Africans should go to re-Christianize America and Europe", he
said. (Punch Nov 6, 2003, pg 7)
Meanwhile, another demonic side of homosexualism was reported in the general cases of "male genital snatching" currently being recorded in Abuja.Usually victims claim that they discovered that their genitals were missing after some "body contact with the snatcher".There was however a "bizarre twist" to the phenomenon when a staff of one of the GSM service providers said he
discovered that his
genitals had gone after receiving a call from a self-confessed homosexual demanding sexual favours from him."(Punch Dec 14, 2003, pg 42).
