Comment on ... Tutu leads fight to halt anti-gay terror sweeping Africa
"One of the interesting paradoxes about trends in Africa and SA in particular - the rabid social conservatism and bigotry that is shown by anti-gay, anti-women, anti-choice, anti-individual freedom and pro-tribalism, superstition, witchcraft, animism and conservatism.
The joke is that this places Africa in the same league as the racist redneck bigots living in trailer parks in the American South, or the religious fanatics in the Middle East who stone women for adultery (with a sly wink to the adulterer). The irony is completely lost on those who themselves have been the subject of bigotry due to their race. It's funny how the most oppressed people can also be the most eager oppressors. Well done ... Mr Tutu for standing up for an unpopular principle." Mark Robertson
