Coren: Think gay marriage is a finished issue? It isn’t, if you look closely 

Religion not only matters, in many ways it matters more than ever.

Its epicenter, however, is no longer London, Paris or even New York but Africa, Asia and the developing world. There are twice as many Anglicans in Nigeria than in Britain, the United States and Canada combined; more than twice as many Catholics in Africa than in North America; evangelicals make up more than a quarter of the population in Jamaica, almost half in Kenya. Chinese Communism is moribund and it’s estimated that perhaps 100 million Chinese people are Christian.

And the biting truth is that in Africa, the Caribbean, Russia and parts of Asia, the levels of Christian homophobia are staggering and their consequences are hideous and sometimes deadly. Gay people have been killed due to their sexuality in Uganda and the West Indies, kidnapped and tortured in Russia, treated as threats and pariahs all over entire continents.
