Cape Town - South Africa's oldest lesbian and gay service organisation, the Triangle Project, on Friday reacted with outrage at a website that called for the "reclaiming of Cape Town from the homosexual plague".

In a statement, the Triangle Project said the website - contained several irrational and "deeply insulting" statements steeped in homophobia.

"For example, it purports a link between Satanism and homosexuality," said the gay activists.

The website hosted a survey that posed the question: "What should be done with South Africas (sic) moffies?"

The site was suspended by Friday afternoon with a notice saying this had been done "do to (sic) AUP violations. Please contact the Systems Administrator".
