Quaint Customs

 Kenya PM threatens to arrest gays  

I'm always amused when a person or group representing a culture other than ours does or proposes something morally reprehensible. Not because of their actions but because of the reaction of my colleagues in academia. I know that they want to condemn it as quickly and as strongly as if George Bush or a fundamentalist Christian had said or did it. But dammit, we can't pass judgment on other cultures!
