The Kenyan Conference of Catholic Bishops has condemned a Supreme Court of Kenya ruling allowing the registration of organizations that seek to advocate for and support LGBT people. The condemnation is in stark contrast to statements from the Pope that have supported decriminalisation of homosexuality and tolerance for queer people. Mwwakilishi, a U.S.-based publication for diaspora Kenyans, reported: The Kenya Conference of Catholic Bishops (KCCB) has called on the Supreme Court to rescind its ruling allowing the registration of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) lobby groups. The bishops condemned the ruling, saying it promotes homosexuality, which is against the constitution and moral values of the people of Kenya.
