New pope HomophobePosted by Phil Ferguson on February 16th, 2013 – 2 Comments – Posted in Uncategorized
Apparently, the current front runner to be the next pope (cardinal Peter Turkson) is a homophobe. He may try to dress up his hate with pretty words but it is the same.
it is important people understand the ‘reasons’ why some African governments have created legislation against homosexuality.
Turkson argues the ‘intensity of the reaction is probably commensurate with tradition’, saying the African culture needs to be respected.
‘When you’re talking about what’s called “an alternative lifestyle”, are those human rights?’ he said.
‘There’s a subtle distinction between morality and human rights, and that’s what needs to be clarified.’
In over 30 African countries, homosexuality is illegal and punishments range from public whippings to jail time and capital punishment.
Some of these laws are also called Kill The Gays! I loved this phrase, “There’s a subtle distinction between morality and human rights…”. Yes there is. People deserve human rights and you are promoting something that is immoral.
Mr. Turkson also has problems with condoms and does not think the prevent the spread of AIDS.
…we’ve discovered in our hospitals, when even people propose, you know, the use of condom, it becomes effective only in families where they resolve also to be faithful.
…let’s talk it over plainly here: we are talking about a product of a factory, and there are different qualities.
…then it gives the poor a false sense of security which rather facilitates the spread of HIV/AIDS.
The people of the world do not need this.
So, I would basicly wish that the amount of resources which are available to put into the production of condoms, if they were spent to subsidize the antiretroviral drugs, now I think we would be happier, in Africa, for the availability of the retroviral drugs then.
He would take the tiny little bit of money it costs to make condoms, let people get AIDS and then give them a few pills that cost a lot. Bad plan Mr. Turkson.
