What the KNCHR / KNHRC Or whatever should do to best curb this problem would be to institutionalize the few freaks in order to have them helped get the right heads on their bodies other than stiring and contaminating the pool by stiring the disease in the society to capture even the young who are yet to put their lives together.

Please!

When I read about all these gay business I smell filth in the paper. Gays and Lesbians are just but sick individuals and should be made to realise that rather than glorifying their filthy behaviour.

There's definitely an agenda being pushed, no doubt with the help of foreign nations (remember the US embassy hosting 'gay pride' dinner sometime back). We must not allow these gays any room or else soon it'll be like the west, churches being forced to wed gay people.

Paul, Njoki, Judy, Jolina, Kush n everyone else here, this is not da right avenue to express our anger towards gays n lesbos, as we talk here they continue to thrive out there, i personally don't believe that God can create gay people coz even in the bible He says a man for a woman, its just something people are putting in their minds, n we need to look for a better way of dealing with this ill activity before it ruins all the values we uphold as africans, whose with me.....??

Im with you Lilian and everyone else. But from what I know as a journalist in the field and having 'worked' a bit with this group in Nairobi is that there's A LOT of money going into this agenda. There are foreign bodies paying members of this group to push their causes. How do I know? For every LGBTI meeting I attended as a journalist, I as well as everyone else got a sitting allowance of up to Sh5,000 upwards per hour 'for sparing your precious time.' I only have to announce my queer orientation, get absorbed into the group and attend as many meetings as I possibly can, and there! It's a full time well-paying job.

Sorry Pierre, I'm sure things are quite difficult for those that hold to the truth on this matter in France. Currently only Africa and Asia are left with the natural intolerance of homosexual behaviour. It's sad to see the first cracks emerge in our nation; sad to see our leaders turning a blind eye to it.

Lillian what's your suggestion? Our best shot as Jesse said was to outlaw it in the constitution. These guys with an agenda can easily get a supreme court judge to overturn a law, but not the constitution...and we missed our shot.

Joy, thanks for the insight. As suspected, big money is being poured into propping up this movement. The government knows the source of the funding but doesn't act....WHY??? Sad state of affairs.
