From the article:

"An organizer of the event, dubbed the "Day Against Homosexuality," said it was intended to honor the memory of a 31-year-old student who was "sodomized and killed by homosexuals" in August 2006 at a Yaounde hotel."

----------

They're so certain it wasn't a suspected gay person who was "sodomized" and killed by homophobes? That is the sort of thing homophobes do.

How can progress be brought to a pitchfook-weilding mob like this?

I was just in Cameroon and saw way too many churches and mosques! Many more than during my last stay 43 years ago. This is where the anti-gay sentiments come from. It's a western influence and has nothing to do with African cultures. What a waste of money building these palaces of hate and ignorance. They money could have been used in other ways to improve the country. I also came across a number of evangelical preachers who were in it for ego and $$$. They teach the people acceptance of their lot and that there is no way out except if it's god's will. This drains their sense of personal responsibility, limits their creativity, discourages them from thinking for themselves to solve their own problems, and make them dependent on religion. Religion is a big business in Cameroon. You might think that a country like Cameroon, which has one of the high literacy rates in Africa, would produce people who see religion for what it is.
