We’ve heard this crap for years from Cameroon. I don’t think most of us are actually listening any more. We think Cameroon is a backwards disgusting human rights violator, and the desperate third-world country run by a dictatorship, and most of us would want any minister of Cameroon to be arrested whenever they travel outside that country.
Too bad we can not do the same to our own class of bigots and self made dictators living within our borders. Masquerading as clergy.
For the sake of gay people in Cameroon, we should be encouraging the decriminalisation of homosexuality; not insulting their country.
His wife’s choice of clothing and her hair, THAT’S a crime too.
