Madonna: Malawi Took A Giant Step Backward

Madonna has sounded off on a recent Malawian court decision to throw a gay couple in jail for 14 years.

The Material Girl called it a “giant step backward” and said it should be reconsidered “in the name of human dignity”.

“I am shocked and saddened by the decision made… by the Malawian court, which sentenced two innocent men to prison. As a matter of principle, I believe in equal rights for all people, no matter what their gender, race, colour, religion, or sexual orientation.”

“Malawi took a giant step backward. The world is filled with pain and suffering; therefore, we must support our basic human right to love and be loved.

“I call upon the progressive men and women of Malawi – and around the world – to challenge this decision in the name of human dignity and equal rights for all.”

Madonna has adopted two children from Malawi, David and Mercy.
