Nairobi, 06 February, 2020 / 3:33 am (ACI Africa).
The Youth Chastity Conference (YCC) that had been slated to take place at the Catholic University of Eastern Africa (CUEA) on Saturday, February 8, with participants expected to deliberate on “homosexual orientations” has been called off indefinitely.
“The postponement has been occasioned by a series of congruous inadequacies,” reads in part the notice calling off the convention signed by Fr. Boniface Mungai, the Chaplain of (CUEA).
“Any inconvenience caused is enormously regretted,” Fr. Mungai states in his February 5 notice sent to ACI Africa and adds, “We earnestly promise a timely dissemination of further communication.”
The one-day conference is being organized under the theme, “Understanding Same Sex Attraction and Gender Deviance” and facilitators with expertise in sexuality and the teaching of the Catholic Church are expected to oversee discussions on same sex orientations, the convener of the event, Ugandan-born Richard Kakeeto told ACI Africa in an earlier interview.
“The catechism of the Catholic Church is of the stand that people having homosexual orientations should strive for perfection and it also says that these acts are intrinsically disordered,” Kakeeto had said referencing the nature of the discussion.
