LAWS AGAINST SEXUAL MINORITES (Uganda?): ¨Equivalent to racism, unworkable and open to appalling abuse¨ says Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury (what say ++York?)

Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury
¨Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, spiritual head of the global Anglican communion, stepped on Tuesday into a row which is flaring at the U.N. Human Rights Council over the persecution of gays and lesbians.

Williams, who has faced strong opposition from parts of his own church especially in Africa for his stance on gays, did not directly refer to the current controversy at the Council, according to the text of a speech prepared for delivery at the Geneva-based World Council of Churches (WCC).

However, he said laws against sexual minorities were equivalent to racism, and warned that legal regulation of consensual sexual conduct "can be both unworkable and open to appalling abuse - intimidation and blackmail..."  please read it all, HERE

Unraveling the problems of religion in Africa requires a complete understanding of local, eastern & western religions, as well as African history. Particularly as to how mostly European wealth continues to dominate & manipulate the locals in order to siphon off the fruits of their labor & natural resources of former colonies. It is, to put it mildly, a big mess exploiting & exterminating many Africans.

and I´m writing about the usual targets (who are especially used as scapegoats in superstitious/machismo Africa where clans are key, God is much touted but reality isn´t a priority and certainly not self-accountability)...Evangelical Americans like ¨C Street¨ Family have driven much of the outcasting and hatred of LGBT people in Africa (Uganda/beyond)...the buck,$$$, is God King and let the blood flow as it may--no doubt exhilerating to feel more whole/righteous while standing on a pile of socially mutilated outcasts to appear taller, wiser and BIG! Quite a loathsome lot (no matter the reason).
