Re: “Exporting Homophobia: American far-right conservative churches establish influence on anti-gay policy in Africa

This article was very informative and answers a lot of questions and concerns I've had since travelling to Kenya about a month ago - with this issue very much at the forefront of my mind! I went not sure what to expect (just being gay can land you in a Kenyan prison for 14 years) and came back angered by the ubiquity of far-right American Christian influence over the culture and laws, most based on literal interpretations of the Old Testament. This same movement has resulted in women being treated as second-class citizens, and all kinds of frightening state-sanctioned punishments for a wide-range of menial crimes. Realising to what extent this appalling system is exasperated and consciously backed financially or otherwise by these American extremists, makes me sick to my stomach. They have innocent blood on their hands.
