Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, Dec 5, 2018 / 18:01 pm
The Archbishop of Dar es Salaam has asked the government of Tanzania to reject any foreign aid that is conditioned on accepting Western cultural norms regarding homosexuality.
During a November harvest Mass in Dar es Salaam, Cardinal Polycarp Pengo said that "It is better to die of hunger than to receive aid and be compelled to do things that are contrary to God's desire."
Western nations "will stop supporting us if we are against homosexuality," Pengo said, according to AMECAE News.
The cardinal added that "the sin of homosexuality" is "contrary to God's plan in creation and should not be accepted at all."
