APOSTOLIC administrator of Mpika Diocese His Grace Archbishop Ignatius Chama says the church’s stand on gay marriages remains unchanged.

Speaking at Katibunga Parish yesterday during the ordination of brother Deogratius Mbita Sikwazwe into the priesthood, Archbishop Chama reminded the congregation that the church position on gay marriages remains unchanged.

He said that the church will never support the marriage of people of the same the same sex because doing so going against the teachings of the bible.

Archbishop Chama who is also Archbishop of Kasama Diocese also called on the Christian community in the area to support the newly ordained priest and help him to grow in his faith.

And speaking during a luncheon hosted in honour of the newly ordained priest, Father Deogratius Sikazwe, Muchinga Minister Mwimba Malama said Government will continue working with the church as partners in development.

Mr. Malama said that the Catholic Church is running institutions such as hospitals, orphanages, colleges and universities and appealed to other churches to emulate the Catholic Church by partnering with the Government in offering services to the public.

The law maker further disclosed that construction of Katibunga –Mukungule Road under Lot 2 , covering a distance of about 81 to be undertaken by Ahui Constructors and Chisala – Lufila Philip under Lot 2 covering about 79 km and to be undertaken by China State Constructors, will commence soon.

Mr. Malama said both contractors have started mobilising adding that once these roads have been completed will result into tourist arrivals in North Luangwa National Park, the only park in Zambia with Rhinos.

Mr. Malama also disclosed that connection of Katibunga to the electricity national grid has been completed successfully saying the mission is now fully powered.

On the newly ordained priest, Mr. Malama said he should pray hard, and do a lot of missionary work so that even the young ones can be inspired to work for Christ.

  1. Thank goodness for the stance the Catholic Church has taken on this.

    The west have totally lost it. Why should this generation reverse centuries of norm? Men can not marry other men.

    The question is why is this accepted even in some African countries like RSA and Nigeria?

    These could be the last days the prophets warned us about.

  2. It is also against the Bible for priests to abuse children yet it is so rife. just the other day, the Scottish cardinal issued an unreserved apology for the abuse perpetrated by the church. To be honest, if it (homosexuality) is not or you well and good. But for people of that orientation, let them be and support them as human beings.

  3. I would like to correct Indigo above! Nigerian hardened the law against homolupuz, even jailing them with 14 minimum years! Nigeria is a very religious and sensible nation. In south Africa dominated by Black ANC voted for it but don’t even believe in homosexual business. How many gays and lesbians in SA have been killed? Many!

  4. Indigo above, just stand corrected! Nigeria is a religious and sensible nation that does not tolerate Homolupuz business. It is the first nation to harden the law against such people for at least 14 years in jail.
    You can understand SA that the majority Black people behave like minority in Parliament. The favoured the business in which they don’t believe. How many of gays and lesbians have been killed in the so called liberal SA? many!

  6. I AM NOT COMMENTING ON GAY BUT ON THE WEST ALWAYS IMPOSING ANYTHING EVEN EXPERIMENTAL STUFF ON AFRICA AND AFRICAN- ESPECIALLY BLACK AFRICANS. THEY DON’T SEEM TO DO THIS ON CHINESE, ARABS OR INDIANS. MAYBE AFRICA SHOULD ALSO DEMAND POLYGAMY IN WESTERN COUNTRIES IN EXCHANGE FOR GAY IN AFRICA. LET US SEE HOW FAR THIS GETS ACCEPTED IN THE WEST AND IF NOT ACCEPTED WHAT REASONS THE WEST WILL GIVE. I AM SAYING THIS BECAUSE THIS IS PREDOMINANTLY AN AFRICAN CULTURE, AND IT IS VERY COMMON FOR WESTERNER MEN TO HAVE SECRET GIRL FRIENDS OR ESCORT GIRLS. SO, WHY DON’T THEY JUST GO OFFICIAL AND MARRY 2 OR MORE WIVES? DON’T GET ME WRONG. I AM NOT FROM A POLYGAMY LANGUAGE GROUPING IN AFRICA.

  8. The issue of homosexuals is not being imposed on us by the west. The debate is the same everywhere. Even in the west there are fundamentalists who are against it. In the recent referendum in ireland it wasn’t a 100% vote for homos.
    The question is, is it right to kill or jail someone just because of their sexual orientation. After all these are consenting adults doing their thing in the privacy of their bedrooms.
    I would rather Mugabe is killed for destroying Zimbabwe’s economy not praised for being homophobic.
