Globalization and the Homosexuality Battle: A Church’s Theological and Social Response

Grace Wambui Itegi


Globally, issues related to homosexuality have generated heated theological and social discussions both in the 0725 265 606 church and society in general.  The discussions are not only varied but also controversial because of the different perspectives people ascribe to in their efforts to address the realities facing the world today as far as homosexuality is concerned.  As a result, this controversy has created tension  and division between church and society; seemingly involved in what the author terms: ‘global homosexuality battle’  It is therefore necessary for Christians and society at large to have an understanding of homosexuality as well as device means through their knowledge to make the right choices and exercise sound judgement on related matters.  It is the Church’s responsibility to advance knowledge on homosexuality to its adherents. This paper argues that despite acceptance of homosexuality in some countries globally, there is still a fierce battle on its acceptance in many countries especially in Africa, Kenya included.  The paper specifically looks at the theological and social battle that has affected the society as regards homosexuality in Kenya.  The paper draws from the principles articulated in the Bible. Reference is also made to the Human Rights Act, Kenya Constitution 2010, Marriage Act, Children’s Act and the Penal Code. The author then makes conclusion based on the ideologies of different writers and literature.

Keywords: Homosexuality, Theology, Society, Church, Battle, Globalization, Law, Human Rights.
