NAIROBI, July 6, 2015 (ChurchMilitant.com) - In the wake of the United States' Supreme Court's declaring a constitutional right to same-sex "marriage," and with U.S. President Barack Obama scheduled to visit later this month, Kenya’s deputy president, William Ruto, has taken a solid stand against sodomy in the Christian nation.

"Homosexuality is against the plan of God, God did not create man and woman so that men would marry men and women marry women," Ruto told a group of Christian Kenyans yesterday.

Reassuring them of his staunch opposition to the ever-expansive Western pro-gay movement, he proclaimed unwaveringly, "We have heard that in the U.S. they have allowed gay relations and other dirty things. I want to say as a Christian leader that we will defend our country Kenya, we will stand for our faith and our country."

Anticipating pressure from the gay agenda for such opposition to its aims, Ruto added, "No amount of persuasions, theories or philosophy will make us change our position. We believe in God, this is a God-fearing nation and will continue to be so."

Deputy President Ruto is urging both Christians and Muslims in Kenya to fight any and all attempts at introducing legal recognition of homosexual unions in their country.

The Catholic Justice and Peace Commission and the Kenya Christian Professional Forum held a rally against sodomy and the gay agenda today in Nairobi, Kenya's capitol. In the demonstrations, Kenyans warned President Obama not to push sodomy on their culture, politics or, most especially, youth.

Demonstrators chanted, "We want Obama, we want Michelle, and we want a child! We do not want Obama and Obama, we do not want Michelle and Michelle! We want Obama and Michelle and we want a child!"

A Pew Research Center study determined that 96 percent of people in Kenya said "homosexuality" should be "rejected."

Pope Francis has been warning non-Western countries several times this year about "ideological colonization" by countries and organizations in the West, in which the latter attempt to strongarm the former into embracing immoral practices like abortion, contraception, sodomy and gender theory. Kenya has been victim to this phenomenon already through Catholic Relief Services, which helped promote contraception there with the help of the U.S. government.

The responses from Kenya's citizens and deputy president conform to a growing trend of non-Western nations becoming fed up with "gay pride" and its attendant ideology.

President Barack Obama is scheduled to visit Kenya from July 24–26.
