    If only Desmond Tutu were actually there in the courtroom to give his opinion. I really don’t hold up much hope that this will go the way we would like it to.

    1. It will, eventually. The strategy is clear. Ultimately anti homosexuality laws are unlawful, so whereas you may be right and the claim will be lost all the way up to the local court of final appeal, there will be a further appeal from there, to the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council in London. There, judges of the Privy Council will uphold an appeal (since the law is clear) and the law will be changed locally from there. See http://www.humandignitytrust.org and wish them success!

    I was just wondering if this law also applies to straight couple who engage in anal sex or it it just reserved for us evil gays
