Africa’s new colonists: American evangelical Christians | African News | Scoop.it

Opponents of gay rights in Africa often suggest that homosexuality is “un-African”. But over the past few years, scholars and activists have warned with growing urgency that it is the increasing pitch of homophobia on the continent that is really un-African, because it is literally being imported in some cases. Their claim is that anti-gay sentiment is being consciously fomented and spread by huge evangelical churches in America, who see Africa as their shot at power and influence if America is lost.
