Fr. Jake is on the case regarding the connections between conservatives in the US and various church leaders in Africa and Asia, and in particular regarding the connections between the realignment gang with amazing links to conservative religious organizations in the US and the Anglican Prelates from several nations in Africa, all part of the "Global South" cabal. Go, read it. Good stuff.
It is all about exporting homophobia, at least as far as Fr. Jake reads it. The operant part of that word homophobia is in this context phobia. The export of fear mongering is a tidy way of getting others to carry the message that Christianity and Family as we know it is about to crumble and that it is "those people" who are the cause of it all. If we just get rid of "them" then everything will be alright.
It works very well indeed. And Jake also reminds us of something I have spoken to as well, that its homophobia this week it is fear of Muslims next.
It is time to step up to the plate. If you fear homosexuals, then fear me. It's time to wear the pink triangle on an armband or patch. If you fear Muslims then fear me. It is time wear a crescent symbol on an armband or patch. It is also time for serious comedy, for laughing these people into submission may be the only way out. Otherwise the fear mongering crowd wins.
Go read Jake, then come back.
