Funny Things People Name Stuff, Episode #1:

FAG Evangelical Ministry in Kinshasa, D.R. Congo

This Evangelical Group in Ngaliema neighborhood of Kinshasa has cleverly named themselves, Foi Amour Guerison or F.A.G.  The literal translation is “Faith Love Healing”.   The irony of course is that the acronym in English is a term used to refer to homosexuals, somewhat in a derogatory manner.   Evangelicals are known to be one of the most anti-gay religious groups operating in Africa.  For example, their ministries have helped spawn the movement for capital punishment for homosexuals in Uganda.
