Dispatch from the Front: Gays Under Siege in Africa


Andrew Sullivan is reporting today that gays in Africa are increasingly under siege.  Gays are being rounded up and arrested in Malawi.  There has been a sudden anti-gay pogrom in Kenya.  The kill-the-gays bill remains on the table in Uganda.

Things are getting really bad out there.  And I'm not seeing much news coverage of these developments.  Nor am I hearing people of faith speaking up against the violence and oppression.
