The Anglican Church of Kenya (ACK) has denounced people and civil society organisations championing for the recognition of same sex marriages in the country.
ACK Archbishop Jackson Ole Sapit said recognizing same sex marriages will amount to going against Biblical teaching that support man-woman marriages.
He said if God approved same sex marriages, then he would have created only one gender- either men or women.
Speaking when he led a church service at the Bungoma ACK Dioceses in Bungoma on Wednesday, Ole Sapit said the country must accept the fact that God created man and woman because of procreation.
"We have to respect He who created us, that he made man and woman because of procreation. If He approved same sex marriages, then He would have created men alone or women," the cleric said.
Kenyan laws do not recognize same sex marriages but there have been campaigns by private individuals and civil society groups pushing for the recognition of the same.
Despite the criminal nature of same sex unions Kenyans have secretly been engaging and their weddings usually take place outside the country- mostly in European countries which approve man-man or woman-woman marriages.
One of such marriage took place in the UK in 2009 when Charles Ngengi and Daniel Chege wedded.
