Hundreds of Muslims and conservative Christians in Kenya’s capital rallied Friday outside the Supreme Court to protest its decision last month to reaffirm the LGBTQ community’s right of association, saying that the verdict condoned immorality. “They’re actions that are against God’s commandments, and God’s laws. We do not want the future, our kids, to be raised in a society whereby, they can’t go, our boys cannot go after girls, our girls cannot go after our boys. You see? How can children be raised in such a society? This is what we are talking about. This is not a matter of violence. We have come here peacefully just to let the whole world know we are ready to die,” said Abdulkalil Ibrahim, protester.
