The following quote was in the article “Dozens of Gays Arrested in Nigeria Under Strict New Law” by Jeff Schapiro on the Christian Post website. The article included Christopher Doyle”s comments on Nigeria’s new law against homosexual organizations and gay marriage: “Christopher Doyle, president of Voice of the Voiceless, an advocacy organization that works to support former homosexuals and individuals with unwanted same-sex attraction (SSA), said Tuesday that the law is ‘overly punitive’ and could create an environment of fear instead of one where people struggling with SSA can get help.”

“‘In that sense it sort of drives the discourse around this issue underground, and I don’t think that’s a good thing,’ said Doyle.”

“He also says Nigeria, Uganda, Russia and India – nations that are taking hardline stances against homosexuality – might be acting in response to what they’re seeing in Western cultures. Gay activism has forced a political correctness on many Western cultures, he says, which prevents those who believe in traditional marriage from sharing their beliefs without repercussions.”
