You might find the following link interesting - in a 4th March wall post on the official Facebook ACDP group, a representative of the ACDP admits the ACDP and other fundamentalist parties have been meeting to discuss unity of Christian political parties before or after next months election - under the influence of Peter Hammond and Errol Naidoo - the two most dangerous homophobes and religious fundamentalists in SA! http://www.facebook.com/group.php?sid=a06f2bc810e44f1b6094d1afc4436511&gid=26696594649#/topic.php?uid=26696594649&topic=7689
Wesley Douglas, an MP for the ACDP spoke at length about internal politics and inter-party processes which led to the recent meeting between the ACDP, CDA, UCDP, NADECO and CDP with regard to "unity talks". This meeting was also attended by several "Christian media" organisations like radio Tygerberg, JOY magazine, Today magazine, which are often closly associated with Christian Action Network - a viciously anti-GLBT fundamentalist group which is headed by Peter Hammond - co-author of 'the Pink Agenda' one of the most hateful anti-gay pieces of junk-science and propaganda we have seen so far in SA.
In the Facebook post Douglas alleges that "Dr Peter Hammond from the organisation Africa Christian Action and Mr Errol Naidoo from the Family Policy Institute approached the ACDP and other Christian political parties at the end of the year  to arrange talks around unity towards the election." "We have been engaged in talks with many Christian leaders around the country for many months on unity among Christian parties" said Douglas. Another troublesome worry for GLBT is the fact that COPE has also appointed a Bishop as its presidential candidate, raising concerns of yet more alliances following the April election.

Despite the theocratic ambitons of all the parties reported to have attended, this meeting descended into a mud-slinging match mainly between the ACDP and CDA who each seemed keen to assert their own authority and leadership and to not take a second seat to the other. Judging by the content of the rambling letter, accusations about who left which party and who betrayed who - and facetious claims of which parties represent 'better christians' and who are more 'ungodly' flew unabound. (Was the pot perhaps calling the kettle black?) Despite assertions that all parties present followed exactly the same policies and despite their eagerness to persecute those they deem 'morally reprehensible' and their desire to elevate themselves and their bigoted fanatical brand of religion above everybody else in this country - they just could not agree on who should lead this new as yet theoretical religious super-party. But in reading this letter, several things became clear to me.
If these radical fundamentalist parties ever do one day put aside their differences, SA will be in even bigger trouble than it has faced under the current corrupt and inept administration. However bad it may have been under a party not interested in standing in favor of human rights, at least the current ruling party has not actually turned against freedom of expression, marriage equality or a guarantee of euqality for GLBT in the Constitution. A theocratic government run by bloody-minded bastards intent on revoking equality for people whom they determine to be suitable scapegoats - will be far, far worse.
For the past year I have been spreading the word, passing on the news that the fundmentalist parties need only to unite and form alliances and they will be a serious threat to human rights in southern Africa. They want to rule, they want to control SA, they want to rejoin church and state under a "Christian" government. They want to prescribe what we can say, think, do, watch, read and think. Looking at their track records, fighting marriage equality for GLBT, protest campaigns against women's rights, what we can or can't watch on TV, attacking media freedom and just diversity in general - I think you can see exactly what to expect from such a theocracy. Despite every protesting response to queries or comments made to these parties over the past year, this little scrap of evidence plainly shows that this is exactly what they are planning to do.
Lastly - and I have to take both pain and pleasure in saying this: I F***ING WELL TOLD YOU SO!
There are, to my mind, only two things standing in their way - each other - and who YOU vote for.
Make sure it isn't them!
