ANTI-GAY ELECTIONEERING HEATS UP

Advertorial

Gays and lesbians are under attack as a conservative Christian party focuses its election campaign on promising to eradicate LGBT rights in South Africa.

SA GLAAD reports that in an election message broadcast yesterday on the 5FM urban youth radio station, the Christian Democratic Alliance (CDA) stated that it aims to remove equal protection for gays and lesbians from the constitution.

On its website, the CDA says that same-sex marriage rights, along with abortion and pornography are behind the moral decay of the nation.

“When the Christian parties refused to sign the new constitution, recognising then already that it would lead to our latest laws on homosexual marriage, restriction on evangelism through the latest Equality Act and the wholesale genocide of the unborn, we were called alarmist,” said CDA National Media Liaison Colin Fibiger in an address last year.

The party’s 2009 election manifesto does not specifically mention homosexuality but states: “We affirm that marriage by its only true definition is the union between a man and a woman and we remain committed to that stand.”

Formed in July 2008, the CDA claims to be a “new political force” that unites various Christian parties and interests. In Wednesday’s radio broadcast, the party made an appeal for all “true Christians” to support them in the April 22 election.
