The bishop’s name is Paul Kariuki, and he’s a vile, immoral man. Not only is he trying to stop birth control and encourage poor people in Kenya to have more children than they can afford to support, he’s also worked hard to stop distribution of critical tetanus vaccines. He claims without evidence or foundation, that they cause a decrease in fertility. Further, in a nation troubled by violent homophobia, he has used the power of his clerical position to block UN investigations into human rights abuses against LGBTQ people.

Remember that when people talk about Pope Francis being progressive, that he allows evil pieces of shit like this bishop to remain in power.
