Reno Omokri reacts to the death of Binyavanga Wainaina, says its a teachable moment for LGBTQ supporters

Reno Omokri has reacted to the death of award-winning Kenyan author and LGBT activist Binyavanga Wainaina saying although it is sad, it is also a teachable moment for those who support the LGBTQ lifestyle.

Wainaina, who won the Caine Prize winner for African Writing in 2002, died on Tuesday night after suffering a stroke at Aga Khan Hospital in Nairobi.

Reno wrote;

“Binyavanga Wainaina’s death is sad. But it is a teachable moment for those who want to force the LGBTQ lifestyle down our throats.
It is a risky lifestyle. It leaves you susceptible to HIV/AIDS. If you have those urges, FIGHT it. Don’t EMBRACE it.
I understand the rationale behind the tributes now pouring in, but we must be careful. Glamourising the gay lifestyle is not the way to go. Man fell in the Garden of Eden. One of the consequences of that fall is that we all have our sinful tendencies. Some of us have criminal tendencies. Some of us have tendencies to lie. Others have tendencies to overeat. Our cross is to fight our baser tendencies, not give in to them.”
