It is noted that minorities around the world tend to be more religious than the rest of the population, This does seem justified by the fact that minorities find shelter in religion. However, what's surprising is that those groups refuse to admit that religion has been used over the centuries as a tool for discriminating against them.
When minorities turn to religion, they usually go to the extremes, and become blinded by faith. This ultimately reflects on their lifestyle, their morality and vision of the world. What's more disturbing is how these minorities take a hostile stand against other oppressed groups, especially the LGBT community.
Take for example the African American community in the USA. Its members usually come from a strong religious conservative background. Their views on certain topics are still highly affected by their faith. Speaking of homosexuality, African Americans usually stigmatize this group of people, considering them a 'white sickness' and refusing to accept their gay fellow citizens.
Outside the US, alarming things are happening as well. The African continent has been the scene of a massive christianization and islamization. Missionaries are using illegitimate means to spread the 'Good news' among Africans leading to catastrophic effects on communities. The amount of extremism being cultivated there is leading many groups to fear for their lives. Gays for example are being more and more persecuted, with counties like Uganda threatening to kill them.
The following article, Homophobic minorities exposes how African tribes didn't have any form of homophobia until the Christian evangelists decided to disrupt their hole system of values.
