Colonizing African ValuesSubtitled "How the U.S. Christian Right is Transforming Sexual Politics in Africa" and based on months of research on the ground in sub-Saharan Africa by Political Research Associates, this report documents how the U.S. Christian Right is expanding its assaults on LGBT and reproductive rights.

The 68-page report from 2012 serves as a clarion call to the human rights and social justice communities to counteract right-wing neocolonialism by increasing both the scale and sophistication of support for human rights promoters in Africa.

This academic article investigates the discourses of academic African Christian theologians on homosexuality. Distinguishing some major strands in African theology, that is, inculturation, liberation, women’s and reconstruction theology, the article examines how the central concepts of culture, liberation, justice, and human rights function in these discourses. On the basis of a qualitative analysis of a large number of publications, the article shows that stances of African theologians are varying from silence and rejection to acceptance.


Although many African theologians have taken up the cudgels against gay rights, some “dissident voices” break the taboo and develop more inclusive concepts of African identity and African Christianity.
