RELIGION MUST RESPECT – ACCEPT LGBTQ PEOPLE

In the past decade, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTIQ) people have made significant legal and political gains in South Africa, including the freedom to marry.
LGBTIQ people across South Africa seem to lack clear recourse and redress when they are fired, evicted, or refused service because of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
The Association of Religion Data Archives (relying on World Christian Trends) estimated in 2010 that 82.0% of South Africans identified as Christian, 7.1% identified with indigenous religions. South Africa is a country which is mainly defined as Christian but other religions including Islam, indigenous religion are amongst the most prominent beliefs in South Africa, subscribing to their tenets in a community of faith is at the helm of what constitutes wholeness for many individuals in society.
