Banning of the FILM Rafiki

Dear Lawrence,

lf we were to go with your religious/ Biblical angle, then everything in
Kenya is immoral and wrong in the eyes of God,

(i) starting with corruption,(see the ten commandments-thou shall not
steal, you shall not covet your neighbour’s property , the story of
Zaccheus, e.t.c),

(ii) Adultery which is an everyday thing everywhere(thou shall not covet
your neighbour’s wife)

(iii) discrimination and abuse of women- doesn’t the Bible say that God is
no respecter of persons? doesn’t the Bible give instructions on how to
treat others

(iv) ethnicity- love your neighbour as love your yourself?

and I could go on and on

For you religious guys, it is very hypocritical to throw the moral card
only when you feel like, if we are to throw the moral card, let us apply it
to everything and I mean everything!

Regards
