In his report, His grace Abune Fanuel attached the letter written to the 44th and current President of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama. The letter is full of rebukes against the endorsement of the same sex marriage in the constitution of USA in the presidency of President Obama. The letter read as follows;
To His Excellency, President Barack Hussein Obama
President of United States of America.
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue N.W. Washington D.C. 20500
Your Excellency, May God’s grace be up on you!
I am Abune Fanuel, archbishop of Washington DC and California diocese under the Ethiopia Orthodox Tewahido Church writing this letter to you. The Ethiopian Orthodox Church has three dioceses (the throne of archbishops) in the USA: New York, California and Washington DC. We have no less than one hundred parish churches with more than one million church members.
We are in extreme sadness about the endorsement of same sex marriage during your presidency. GOD condemns same sex marriage. America is a blessed and sovereign country that is a host to people without any discrimination in race and colour. But the practice of Sodomite violates God’s law; brings disorder to the rule of marriage; and puts in danger the God-given law of generation succeeding generation.
