many African bishops see homosexuality as an aberration
Biologically, it is an aberration. That doesn't mean we shouldn't tolerate it. After all there are a gazillion biological aberrations that no-one fusses about.
On the level of religious beliefs, we shouldn't be surprised at this happening in a conservatively Christian country. What happened to respecting other people's beliefs that we disagree with, which many on GN have argued for and expressed annoyance at my arguing that is is the people holding views we disagree with that we should respect, not the views themselves.
Which brings me to my next point, which is, in the current climate of 'decolonisation' of history and associated fashionable blah blah, isn't it a bit colonialist to be expressing outrage about a decision made in a now democratic former colony of Britain? This is a serious question. Who are we to want to our values to be imposed on another country?
All of the above does not change my own view that gay people should not be killed for living their lives as they wish. I'm just a bit surprised by the outrage expressed on here.
