Pray for Davis, and write to Lambeth

Liz Zizanov of the Diocese of Hawaii posted this appeal from Davis Mac-Iyalla on the House of Bishops and Deputies list tonight. Pray for Davis, and write to Lambeth. Is it possible that the Archbishop of Canterbury and the people around him don’t understand that his failure to confront Peter Akinola over this bill and the Church of Nigeria’s treatment of Davis has undermined his ability to speak out on any other human rights issue?

Dear Friends,

I don’t know if members of this group can do much to help us in Nigeria?

This morning I got a call from an unknown caller who wanted to find out where I am at the time. I ask him to introduced himself since I don’t know him and he said so you are back from your trip and off the phone on me. I called the number back and a woman picked and said it is a public call phone. My surprise is how he did get my number which is very private.

I have been talking with friends and supporters of how to go to a safe place for some time at list. The bill to ban us in moving fast to become law. The worst of all is that +Akinola is the master and brain be hide this bill, recently he has been lobbying the presidency to put pressure on the senate and house of representatives to speed up the process in passing the bill.

This evening I have receive news from Abuja that the bill is likely to be passed be fore the end of March. And members of Akinola staffs boosting that CAN will soon be illegal and me will be sent to prison. Most of my members are now calling and sending me mails to askwhat will become of them if this bill is passed?

This is one question that I don’t have the answers to right now, my appeal to everyone is to help use any medium that you can to drew the attention of the world and church leaders to this Nigerian problem.

If tears can changed things I think by now I would have changed the situation of the Nigerian LGBT Christians.

If you can dear brothers and sisters please give a last minute call to your bishops or anyone you know that can add there voices to put pressures on the Nigerian government and +Akinola who is the current president of the Nigeria Chastain Association that is requiting that the bill be passed soon.

Please spread this massage if you can.


Davis Mac-Iyalla
