Malawi has deemed to have lost its consensus on sex morality and godly ideals, the clergy observed during an inter denominational prayers for the rains which were organised at Bingu International Conference Centre (BICC) yesterday.
The men of the collar called for the nation to know the appropriate and inappropriate behaviour in the eyes of God.
Reverend Clifford Baloyi of Livingstonia Synod who gave an intercessory prayer in Chitumbuka said because of immoral behaviour which is manifested in people’s dressing and sexual behaviour such as homosexuality, God is not giving Malawi sufficient rains.
It is noted that adulterous behaviour, the levels of premarital sexual activity, same-sex relations are said to be out of control in the country.
Baloyi said societies that cast aside their moral underpinnings will ultimately end up on the scrap heap of history.
The speakers during the prayers attended by delegates, including President Peter Mutharika, representatives of the donor community and opposition party leaders— also condemned homosexuality as sinful lifestyle.
Reverend Alex Maulana of Malawi Council of Churches said God could punish Malawi for propagating same-sex liaisons.
He said in Malawi people have reached a point where they love money more than God such as where people are “forming organisations whose intention is to propagate sinful.”
But human rights activist have said the government is using LGBTI issue as a tool to distract the public from worsening economic situation.
