Since the ruling last week by the US Supreme Court legalising same-sex marriage, diverse reactions have been trailing the judgment, especially as America is widely regarded as “God’s own country”. The suggestion to recognise God’s supremacy in the U.S. currency was championed in a letter addressed to the Secretary of Treasury by a minister in 1861. An Act of Congress granted it on April 11, 1864, and authorised the motto: ‘In God We Trust.’ The omission of the slogan from the gold coins issued in 1907 had sparked public criticism. Following the legislation passed in May 1908, all American coins were subsequently mandated to bear the inscription: “In God We Trust”. Ever since, America has been acknowledged globally as God’s own country. With the recent judgment, however, some people are beginning to wonder if America is still God’s own country. So, what does this stand portend for the rest of the world, especially in the light of the fact that the world has become a global village and America is supposed to be the leading country? Can churches and mosques in Nigeria do anything to stop the spread in the country? Are there spiritual consequences for nations that embrace the trend? Could this be one of the end-time signs that the world is actually coming to an end? CHRIS IREKAMBA took the issue to religious leaders.
