Banning of the FILM Rafiki

Tracy,

First things first, Cambridge Dictionary defines hypocrisy as:-
*a situation in which someone pretends to believe something that they do
not really believe, or that is the opposite of what they do or say at
another time.*
Link: dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/english/hypocrisy

All that you listed are vices we all condemn. When we single out a vice and
actually have the audacity to call it a virtue? That is what *hypocrisy* is!

Advocating for LGBT rights to assemble with placards to be given rights to
enforce their unnatural preferences… NEXT would we advocate for ROBBERS
having a right to break into my house as a means to earn a living!

What the *gay guys *do behind their doors is not my concern nor should it
be anyone elses. What I mind is it being forced onto our kids!

As Walu rightly put, we have MORE PERTINENT ISSUES to resolve.

So my dear sister, there is nothing hypocritical in my beliefs. I call a
wrong for what it is -* A WRONG*!

Twahir
