Coincidentally (or not) my friend Adele, at her site www.Queermergent.com, posted some startling information today concerning homosexuality in Africa:
I don't presume that all my readers are egalitarian on the issue of homosexuality, and as I've said before of gender issues, I have enjoyed the luxury of remaining somewhat neutral. In the last year, I have moved from that supposed (and often only illusory) "neutrality," to a much more supportive stance. Queer issues are human rights issues. Homosexuals, like women, First Nations people and other minorities, are "the least of these." They are the marginalized. Jesus came to set captives free.
Who have we prevented from reaching freedom? From equality? From emancipation?
My favorite Lauryn Hill song says, "It's freedom time..."
