"If men were angels, no government would be necessary." Federalist No. 51
Yes, it's interesting to hear all these loud claims that the Western churches have gone "cultural" (a novel American use of the word which would not be understood in Europe, for instance) and that the African churches defend the True and Traditional Teaching of the Church, while what they defend, really is not so much a teaching of the Church, as Colonial 19th century laws ("culture"), still on the book in their own countries but largely abandoned in the West (where they originated).19th century Laws and 19th century Theology.How's that for "cultural"?
Yeah, I tend to agree with you on the point that the African "culture" is a holdover from 19th C colonialism. I like this short essay on the "un-african" nature of homosexuality.OK, gotta go to bed.
Very interesting essay indeed.(I stole it for my blog)
