Mormons, Catholics, Pat Robertson Implicated In South African Politics Over Anti-Gay Issues

According to a report by the Boston based Political Research Associates, it says U.S. conservatives have been pushing ideological agendas in other countries by sending politicians in African countries like South Africa money.

The report accuses right-wing conservatives of "fanning the flames of the culture wars over homosexuality and abortion by backing prominent African campaigners and political leaders." It goes on to say the groups is "reshaping national political dynamics and even laws based on an American template."

The group, according to the report, made up by the Mormons, Catholics, Pat Robertson and Ricky Warren are accused of flooding money into local African political campaigns, then pressuring politicians to fall in line or threaten to withdraw political financing.

These groups are accused of setting up fronts in Africa to fight for anti-gay and anti-abortion legislation.

Pat Robertson unsuccessfully ran for president in the 1988 presidential elections after failing to win the Republican nomination.

TFNJ reached out to each of the groups listed but no one was willing to talk to us on the record.
