Imagine suicidal homophobes despondent over the arrival of marriage equality calling lgbt focused suicide hotlines, like the Trevor Project....

What could you say as the anti suicide counselor?

"Jesus will still love you if even you commit the sin of suicide."

[Robotic voice.] "You have reached a non working number."

"Well, some things are inevitable." (A double entendre. Get it?)

"Hold please, forwarding to Marcus Bachmann's clinic...."

Sadly, this Court's ruling isn't based on it being a gross violation of human and civil rights, but on its passage being in technical violation of constitutional requirements. Even if the nation's top Court upholds the ruling, as long as they do it legally, they can vote this legislation right back into place.

I loved reading about the anti gay minister who wants the Parliament to investigate the courts for corruption.

It was the Parliament that cheated to pass this law so of course this guy wants the cheaters to investigate the people who caught them cheating.

If I can find the article again I'll post a link.

But it surprises me that most people are missing a key part of this whole story.

The Ugandan Parliament disobeyed it's own rules to pass this law.

If you have to cheat to win how noble is your cause?

What I find interesting is the fact that without resorting to cheating and fraud, the Parliament wasn't able to pass this law!

You seem to be confused. They weren't able to pass this in an honest vote.
