Bishop Camillus Etokudoh of Port Harcourt, Nigeria vehemently attacked same sex marriage criticizing it as the debasement of human dignity and aberration of societal values. The bishop was delivering the homily at the ordination of 8 new priests at Our Lady of Lourdes Church.
“Spiritual and moral values are being sacrificed in the name of scientific or societal development,” Bishop Camillus said. Speaking to Catholic faithful gathered there, he warned them to beware of social vices that negatively affect family and cultural values.
The Bishop stated that “culturally and spiritually”, marriage is a union between a man and a woman, a truth ordained by God. “Different sex marriage will always prevail as it is a divine order,” he added..
