According to Nigerian Sun Newspaper, a local women’s football team has expelled a number of lesbians, just because they are lesbians.
The team, The Falcons, currently in Germany all set to play in a FIFA Women’s World Cup game on 30th June. From the report, the team’s coach Eucharia Uche said "lesbianism could be counted as a thing of the past among [the Nigerian women’s team]". "Yes, lesbianism used to be a big problem in the team, but since I took over as the chief coach of Falcons, I think the problem has been dealt with. Lucky, some of the girls played with me and they know my do’s and don’ts. They know that I cannot tolerate such a nasty practice. In fact, lesbianism does not currently exist in Falcons’ camp and nobody discusses it.
"The players have come to know God now unlike what we had in the past. Most of them lived in ignorance, but now, they have realised the truth through proper counselling."
The quotes in the report continue in the same hateful way: "We now have a bunch of players that are thirsty for the things of God and with that, they are now more committed and devoted to their games, knowing that football can attract fame, fortune and joy to their hearts quite unlike lesbianism that can ruin them. The Christians among them now go to church and on our own, we periodically organise non-denominational prayer sessions”
"We have seen the result of our efforts and I can tell you that lesbianism is now a thing of the past in the camp of the Super Falcons."
One would suppose this thirst for all things ‘god’ will include them turning into pillars of salt, not wearing mixed fibres, talking to talking snakes, walking through a parted sea and stoning their first born to death.
