In a Facebook posting published below, Mai Ahmad Fatty made his position clear on secularism and gay marriage.
Each of us must be bold enough to articulate where you stand on national issues. Honesty must start with yourself. We cannot continue the politics of deception.
Yes I am for a non secular state. Religion is a personal affair. Muslims, Christians and other faiths share equal sovereignty. I will never impose my religious views upon any one, and I will always defend freedom to worship. Yet, I believe if it ain’t broken, don’t try to fix it.
I am also strictly against gay marriage. Marriage should be between a man and a woman, period. These are two positions that are non negotiable for me. It is for each Gambian to decide where you stand on these issues.
I have received too many inquiries as to where I stand on these two matters. My position on them is crystal clear.
