Tolerance, please

I attended a meeting at Radio Dialogue Offices here in Bulawayo today. By the reception, they had Gays and Lesbians disks they were giving out.

I stood there to observe behaviour patterns. The first of most is to rush forward because the prospect of receiving a free CD is attractive. But on realising they are Gays and Lesbians CDs the people were retreating as if there was a snake in the box.

The level of intolerance to what we do not know or understand is shocking. I casually commented that there was no harm in taking the CDs and at least make informed decisions – I was given murderous looks!

We need to examine ourselves as a people. As much as I might not like what my brother enjoys, I will fight to the death his right to enjoy it.
