South Africa more progressive than the Tories

My jaw almost hit the floor when I read this one. South Africa has passed a same-sex marriage bill. Kind of puts our Conservative government to shame! To say that homosexuality is taboo in Africa is a major understatement; typically, you can count on it getting you killed. If the South African governemnt can overcome the most violent prejudice & pass a bill that upholds human rights, why is our government trying to undo it here, where we are supposed to be more tolerant?

  1. UNbelievable – and yes, puts our current government to shame!

    Given the strong taboo against homosexuality in Africa in general, I’m flabbergasted, but in a good way. Well done, South Africa – generally progress comes through tolerance.
