"You just don't physically threaten and punish people with whom you have theological differences," said Gerald West, a professor in the School of Religion, Philosophy and Classics at the University of KwaZulu-Natal. South Africa has laws that protect people regardless of sexual orientation, and also allows same-sex marriages.

"What this Uganda law does is make it extremely difficult for the church to work with any integrity in any area," said West.

Gerald West, professor at the University of KwaZulu-Natal's school of religion and theology and the director of the Ujamaa Centre for Community Development and Research, notes in his paper, "The ANC's deployment of religion in nation building: From Thabo Mbeki to 'the RDP of the Soul' to Jacob Zuma", that "there is sufficient evidence to indicate that Zuma has appropriated aspects of a likeness to Jesus".

West also suggests that the speech, although concerned with South Africa's collective soul, was part of a trajectory for Mbeki to legitimise the much-maligned growth, development and redistribution (Gear) macroeconomic policy that replaced the RDP initiative.
This trajectory, according to West, continued to Polokwane, where the RDP-of-the-soul discussion document called for a "secular spirituality" and an attempt (seemingly ignored) to inculcate these sentiments in policy.
Whereas Mbeki's use of the Bible was "erudite and somewhat bookish", according to West, "Zuma is robustly Christian in his religious discourse, favouring the more Pentecostal and 'fundamentalist' (in terms of the RDP-of-the-soul discussion document) forms of Christianity".
