Arsehole strikes again

Anne Berkeley’s alerted me to an excellent blog dealing with Nigeria and, in particular, to a post about the hideously repressive legislation being introduced there against homosexuality. Not yet passed, it’s already being applied with typically religious zeal. Even worse, if that’s the appropriate word, the term is used so loosely that a yearning glance across a crowded room is practically as culpable as full-on sodomy. I’ve spoken about the situation of gay people in Nigeria before, and wondered about the faith system of all those middle American Anglicans who prefer to be under the episcopal wing of the spittle-frothing homophobe Bishop Arsehole, rather than our own sweetly well-meaning beardie, the A of C. Still cool about it? Hmm. It will also be interesting to see how Europe reacts when gay Nigerians begin to seek asylum on our own more liberal shores.

The blog is called Naijablog and you can find it here. It’s well worth a read, and not only for this post, entitled God also loves gay people. Scroll down until you find it.

Thank you, Anne.

    You’re welcome, Charles. Bigotry needs exposure. Courage in the face of such massively empowered bigotry deserves honour. Let us now praise Jide Macaulay. I don’t get the Anglican church and what it is they and their “sweetly well-meaning beardie” think worth preserving when it entails the likes of Akinola.(sorry about crap earlier attempt to post this!)
