Cameroon: Priest Charges Politicians and Homosexual Clergy Behind Murder of Bishop

Catholic Culture; Bishop Jean Marie Benoit Bala of Bafia, Cameroon, was murdered because he opposed homosexuals in the clergy, according to a leading priest in his diocese.

At a memorial Mass for the deceased prelate, Msgr. Joseph Akonga Essomba charged that powerful individuals had arranged Bishop Bala’s death; he hinted that politicians were in league with homosexual priests. Gesturing toward government officials who were in attendance at the memorial service, he denounced “all those people in black suits and black spectacles… pretending to sympathize.” He added: “These are the people who killed our bishop, because he said No to the homosexuality perpetrated by those priests.” Read more here with links.
