一位牧師博士指美國信徒對LGBTQI 的恐懼輸出到非洲

原刊於此網站

While LGBTQI people and allies in America enjoyed a hard-fought victory in last month’s Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage, the reaction overseas has been far uglier.

In countries like Uganda, Nigeria, and Kenya, same-sex couples and LGBTQI people aren’t fighting for the right to get married, they’re fighting for the right to simply exist; to not be sentenced to life in prison if a neighbor outs them to the authorities. And they’re facing a well-funded, and sophisticated anti-LGBTQI operation heavily influenced by the U.S. Christian Right.

For years, American culture warriors have strategically focused on countries already suspicious of the U.S.—often ones with authoritarian leaders eager to deflect public attention from corruption and economic inequality. Since 2008, I’ve researched how American right-wing evangelical groups have unceasingly attacked and undermined LGBTQI rights and reproductive justice in the name of Christianity.
