Response to Anglican Nigeria: leave gay marriage alone

It's time for Rowan William to call out Africa on the West's experience. We in the West understand from our experience in the 80s what happens when a society faces AIDS by using its gay population as the sacrificial lamb: it doesn't cure AIDS, it doesn't help the orphans, it doesn't end homosexuality, but it creates severe personal, family, and community rifts, generations of repression and denial and self-hatred, the cure for which will take a general social reckoning on a scale perhaps beyond the church's power.
