The leader of a group representing 700 Kenyan pastors recently spoke out against Barack Obama’s penchant for visiting Africa to chastise those who oppose homosexuality. A statement released by the Evangelical Alliance of Kenya pleads with Obama to “leave the preaching to us” when he visits the African nation later this year.
Bishop Mark Kariuki expounded on his group’s sentiment, urging Obama to “respect the faith, culture and people of Kenya when he comes in July.”
The leader of another faith-based organization offered similar opposition.
“We are not prepared to accept, hear or listen to anyone lecturing us on how our culture is good or bad,” said Inter-Religious Council of Kenya Chairman Adan Wachu.
