has an agenda for Africa that is no different than his agenda for America.
According to documents provided to Mother Jones by Political Research Associates, the ACLJ's African Center for Law and Justice backed another Christian group, the Evangelical Fellowship of Zimbabwe, in pushing to criminalize homosexuality. Constitutional language proposed by EFZ and ACLJ's main Africa office stipulated that "Zimbabwe is a predominantly Christian nation founded on Biblical principles"; that it is "murder to terminate a pregnancy"; and that gay marriage is illegal and gay "sexual relations" will "remain a criminal activity."When Kenya rewrote its Constitution, it included language allowing abortion to save the life of the woman. Sekulow called the language tantamount to abortion on demand.
ACLJ's African agenda isn't any different than its agenda in the United States. While the rhetoric here at home may be a bit softer, the goals are same. Like Romney's advisers on economics, energy, foreign policy, this legal adviser and pal of his is an extremist, far outside the mainstream of American thought, on the fringes even within the Right.
Just as there is no telling exactly how Etch-a-Sketch man would govern were he to overcome the odds and actually get elected to the presidency, there is no way to tell what he might do were he to plunk himself down behind the big desk in the Oval Office and start checking off that list of items he has set for himself to deal with on "Day One." But the array of aggressive extremists with which he has populated his advisory teams provides plenty of evidence that the resurrected model of moderate Mitt we're now seeing is nowhere near the real Mitt, whoever that actually is.
