In Africa, homosexuality is not countenanced

On 12 February 2013, CNN's Christaine Amanpour asked Cardinal Peter Turkson about the possibility of the Church’s sexual abuse scandal spreading to Africa.

The Ghanaian Cardinal answered thus:
"African traditional systems kind of protect or have protected its population against this tendency... In Africa homosexuality or for that matter any affair between two sexes of the same kind are not countenanced in our society. So that cultural taboo, that tradition has been there. It has served to keep it out."
Tut-tut, Turkson. That's not very PC. You not supposed to say the abuse scandals are predominanty homosexual, even though they obviously are!

After the interview CNN dutifully reported:
"According to the American Psychological Association, 'homosexual men are not more likely to sexually abuse children than heterosexual men are'."
Which. of course, is b*llocks.

The 19 February 2013 edition of The Daily Mail quoted Ruth Hunt, Stonewall director of public affairs, thus:
"Cardinal Turkson’s comments show a surprisingly callous disregard for the human rights of millions of people worldwide."
Why? What's callous about stating the stone bl**ding obvious? Ah right. Forgive me, I was forgetting. We are living in a politically correct age where the truth comes a poor second to the 'hurt feelings' of a whiny minority.

Don't know about you but I'm fed up to the back teeth with the censors.

And the whiners. And the whiny censors.

Cardinal Peter Turkson is, at the present time, 5/2 favourite to be the first black Pope.
