Trouble for Africa:Randy Berry appointed first US special envoy for LGBT right.

In a ground-breaking move the United States has appointed Randy Berry the first US special envoy for gay and lesbian rights.
At the announcement of the creation of this new office, US Secretary of State John Kerry said that “Defending and promoting the human rights of LGBT persons is at the core of our commitment to advancing human rights globally -– the heart and conscience of our diplomacy,”
Currently in some 75 countries, mostly in Africa. consensual same-sex activity is banned. So this new envoy has been charged with the duty of ensuring that these laws are changed.
This move by the US under the administration of Obama though not surprising only goes to show again their misplacement of priority.
Currently we are inundated with information of hundred of persons dying from the activities of Boko Haram and ISIS, two weeks ago ISIS killed 21 Christians etc, Boko Haram have been killing in their hundreds and yet USA our supposed big brother is talking of LGBT rights.
Lets all be alert to ensure that our laws reflect the spirit of the people( volkgeist) and refuse any form of international intimidation to forget the right use of our senses.
