Jamil Khir: Malaysians should speak up against same-sex marriage
KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 7 — Malaysians of all races should protest en masse the practice of same sex marriages as it will erode the family institution, advised Minister in Prime Minister’s Department, Datuk Seri Jamil Khir Baharom.
Commenting on the recent wedding reception here of Malaysian gay Christian priest, Ngeo Boon Lin, and his musical producer partner, Phineas Newborn III, who were married in New York last year, he said that even the Christians in the country prohibited such practices.
“The reception portrayed Malaysian society as confused. It’s clear their motive was to fight for gay rights,” he said.
He was speaking a press conference after breaking fast with the Department and agencies’ staff at the National Mosque, here today.
