Gay Persecution of Christians: The Latest Evidence
Zimbabwe 's woes should not be blamed on Robert Mugabe 's ruinously poor grasp of economics and his destructive social policies. It's far easier for the ZANU PF Mugabe's ruling party to blame former colonial powers, Zionists , the formerly politically dominant white minority, and homosexuals for the impressive implosion of Zimbabwe under their rule.
