Whereas the rest of the world is working towards equal treatment for everyone, we in Africa, seem to be rewinding the clock with the help of the religious and not so intelligent legislators so that most people have bought into the line that homosexuality is a sin or a disease or a combination of both.

Really, it's more like a dad who drowned all of his children except for one kid and was like, "Don't worry. I won't murder you or any of the kids I have from here on out! Well, at least not by drowning all of them in a massive flood... You know I mean it too because I made you a pretty painting."
