Church opens war on Rwanda government over homosexuality

A leaked position paper by the Forum of Born Again Churches of Rwanda
(FOBACOR), indicates a storm is brewing between the Church and the
State over the latter’s decision to decriminalize homosexuality/lesbianism.

The strongly worded statement of which 256news.com has got a copy is
specially harsh on Rwanda’s Minister of Justice and Attorney General,
Tharcise Karugarama who is on record saying: “The government I serve
and speak for on certain issues cannot and will not in any way
criminalize homosexuality; sexual orientation is a private matter and
each individual has his or her own orientation – this is not a State
matter at all.”

The Church body accuses the Attorney General of violating the
Rwandan constitution in articles 26 and 27 and other instruments of
international law.
