Ghana: Uganda the sequel?

by Jeremy Hooper

Unknown-8Warren Throckmorton is monitoring a worsening situation in Ghana:

Judging from this June, 2011 report, a safe prediction is that Ghana’s Parliament might soon follow the lead of Uganda in some manner. I have been observing a steady stream of articles from religious and political leaders calling for tougher restrictions on homosexuality.

It's so easy to get caught up in our marriage debates, primary politicking, and "Real Housewives" seasons. But it's a huge world with some hugely disturbing problems. As we take on the sliding scale that is anti-gayness, we must remember the full breadth -- privilege giving us a heightened ability and responsibility to help; harshness giving us insight into the relative imprecision of whatever privilege we might have.
