A bright spot

The New York Times reported today that Malawi's new president, Joyce Banda, declared on Friday she wanted to repeal Malawi's laws against homosexuality.  Malawi may be a small country, but this is huge news on a continent that has become an increasingly dangerous place for gays and lesbians to live.  In neighbouring Swaziland, the national newspaper has called homosexuals 'satanic' and 'evil'.
