Kenyan cardinal: homosexuality, prostitution should not be legalized

Catholic World News - May 09, 2012

Cardinal John Njue of Nairobi is urging lawmakers to reject a government-sponsored report recommending the legalization of homosexual relationships and prostitution.

“If the two are allowed to happen, where will be our family?” said Cardinal Njue. “Will it not be a total destruction of the family? This is why we are totally against this.”

Under Kenyan law, male homosexual activity is punishable by 14 years’ imprisonment. Although illegal, prostitution--including child prostitution--flourishes in some coastal areas frequented by tourists.
