South African president Zuma signs decree replacing "Father's Day" with "Rape Day."

South African president Jacob Zuma has signed a law formally abolishing Father's Day in South Africa and replacing it with a celebration that will be entitled "Rape Day." Speaking about the desicion, Zuma said "This is a mere re-alignment to bring the values we seek to push in South Africa up-to-date." Former South African president Thabo Mbeki has resisted pressure to condemn the decision, saying "I'm not sure. Let's just wait and see."

Rather disturbing story from Time magazine here.
