Anti-gay laws in Africa are product of American religious exports, say activists

When he arrived at Kampala?s Hotel Triangle for a three-day conference, the Rev Kapya Kaoma knew that he would not like what he heard.

The clue was in the event?s title ? ?Exposing the truth behind homosexuality and the homosexual agenda? ? and in the line-up of guest speakers arranged by Stephen Langa, head of the Ugandan-based Family Life Network (FLN), and an outspoken advocate for the criminalisation of homosexuality in Uganda.

Given top billing at the event hosted by the FLN was Scott Lively, president of Abiding Truth Ministries, an American conservative Christian group from California, and a Holocaust revisionist whose controversial book The Pink Swastika names homosexuals as ?the true inventors of Nazism and the guiding force behind many Nazi atrocities.?

Weeks after the Kampala conference in March last year ? which followed a meeting between the speakers and members of the Ugandan Parliament ? a clause appeared in the country?s draft Anti-Homosexuality Bill recommending life imprisonment for certain homosexual ?crimes? or, for ?serial offenders?, the death sentence.

To Mr Kaoma, an Anglican priest from Zambia who is project director of Political Research Associates ? a Massachusetts-based progressive think-tank ? it was further evidence of how America?s Christian Right has stoked intolerance to homosexuality in Africa.

My response exactly!, no disrepect to the poster but when folks are not clear about African history, things lke this are taken as fact.

African culture from one end of the continent to the other has been staunchly pro-hetero and anti gay since the time that the European did not know what a shoe was, nor had a home with a window.

Folks need to take a trip to Jamaica, and find ot what the Bobo-Shanti dread Rastafari have to say about homosexuality, to get a real understanding of the African view

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
