President Obama in Kenya, Defends Legalization of Gay Marriage.

"The US believes in the principle of treating people equally under the law and that they are deserving of equal protection under the law.and that the state should not discriminate against people based on their sexual orientation and I say that recognizing that there may be people that have different religious or cultural beliefs but the issue is how does the state operate relative to people. You can look at the history of people around the world. When you start treating people differently not because of the harm they are doing to anybody but because they are different, that's the path whereby freedom is beginning to erode. 
If somebody is a law abiding citizen who is going about their business and not breaking any law and obeying the traffic signs and doing all the things good citizens are supposed to do and not harming anybody, the idea they are treated differently based on who they love is wrong. Full stop." 
He said, during a press conference in Kenya this afternoon. 

Does his explanation sound good enough to you anti-gay marriage activists?


  1. O well, i'm just really really pissed off that he is more concerned about the discrimination of "gay people" than he is about black people. All these unlawful killings here and there and people getting away with a slap on the wrist is what is disturbing. He should just go abeg! That's the least thing we need in africa. We have more pressing issues here.

    1. I try not to involve myself in this matter but Kabuoy you made a really valid point here. The discrimination against blacks is getting extreme

  2. For the first time in my life, listening to Obama, I'm ashamed (since I'm a huge fan) to say that he actually goofed. We're talking about legalizing gay marriages and he side-stepped by talking about discriminating against people. How are these two related? JESUS never discriminated against sinners but did HE ever sanction sin as a way of life simply because of someone's orientation?

  3. Fact is that there are far more pressing issues on ground.

  4. Fact is that there are far more pressing issues on ground.

  5. "The US believes in the principle of treating people equally under the law and that they are deserving of equal protection under the law"

    That is a really good argument for pedophilia. What do we say if a pedophile argues that it is his/her own sexual orientation and he/she deserves equal treatment as LGBTs (in the US and other countries which approve of them)?

    I agree with the others; we have important and more pressing issues to attend to.


    1. That's not a sufficient argument for pedophilia as President Obama further stated that people are treated equally to the extent that their acts aren't harmful to others. The part of his statement that references that is highlighted below:

      "When you start treating people differently not because of the harm they are doing to anybody but because they are different, that's the path whereby freedom is beginning to erode."

      Pedophilia is a harmful act also has a victim - the affected child's emotional and psychological well being. Hence pedophilia doesn't logically or reasonably qualify to be 'legislated for'.

      I don't think President Obama making a terse statement about gay rights showed a lack of priority as Kenyans had massively being against his stance on gay rights prior to his visit. Yes, the discrimination against blacks is a growing worldwide concern but it is something that isn't solely in his purview as the justice system in America is majorly in the domain of the judiciary as against his office - Executive office.

    2. As much as I strongly disagree with you on this gay right issue... it's nice to have you back! what's wiv the disappearing acts? Lol. Hope you're fine... *o yeah kabuoy, i'm very well, thank you* okay, good!

    3. It’s welcomed to know that you take the opposing stance to my perspective on the gay issue. I believe that it is difficult to make a convincing argument against 'gayism' without throwing in religion and culture. The thing is that those two concerns are weak for these reasons – Nigeria by its constitution is a secular nation; the Nigerian culture (in some sects) espouses vaginal mutilation, killing of twins for diabolic reasons till Mary Slessor ended it, sacrificing people for the rite of passage of a religious leader and so many ills that do a society no good. Primarily the culture of a society evolves over time as it can’t be disputed that the Yorubas (or any other Nigerian culture group) of 1960’s have the same values as those of the 2000’s.

      A society should be guided by good laws that do not inhibit freedom and the right of choice of its citizens as long as those choices and freedom are not used to perpetrate a criminal act (or wrongful civil act). Truth is that I am not in total support of the ‘legislation for’ gay rights for these two reasons – it weakens the fundamentals of a family (mother-child bond) and it might get so pervasive in years to come that it might lead to the extinction of the human race. What I am definitely against is criminalizing gay rights.

      On a personal note, I am a Christian and to a great extent, the entirety of my life is dictated by Christian ethics hence I wouldn’t consider being gay or wish my loved ones to be gay. However, I have come to know that I can’t force my beliefs or perspectives on others and thus when it comes to contentious social/moral issues like this, I resort to the guiding laws of the land, whether it is a criminal act, and other ‘secular best practices’.

      To your inquiries: I’d be fine, have a bit more than my fair share of setbacks to deal with, hoping God comes through soonest.

    4. Keep trusting in him Uncle Chris. He'll surely come through. *bear hugs*

      Back to the "marra".... Uncle Chris... i started typing this long epistle and it was kind of all over the place so you probably wont get my point. I wish i can be more articulate like you *sigh*

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…


Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

One More Post...


He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
See how you are serious dey read this story....!


A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…


I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!

Question of The Day.

TTB readers doesn't this tweet below remind you of something?
That mail that someone sent me a few weeks back. 
But why on earth should a man sleep with his son's fiancé? But what am I saying, some men even sleep with their daughters...

Oh well, I'm throwing the question to you. What has happened in your life that you never saw coming, you never hesperred it, you never imagined could happen, you never imagined could happen to you? 
It could be good, it could be bad, it could be ugly. Do tell!
And it can be more than one. Let me tell you a few. 
-owning a blog -week long dry fast at Prayer City (I never hesperred it).  -staying in an (emotionally) abusive relationship.
The others require anonymity. LOL. Now over to you.
