this is good progress, in the last time those big western countries rely on their wealth and forgot their GOD who raised up them so God let them their mind for evil thinking this is why promoting home sexuality and even they are saying if you want bread accept home sexuality. God is with us what ever we are poor so we honor, worship and obey Our Lord Jesus. God punished seriously those who engaged in homosexuality during the period of LOT.

I admire and applaud Ethiopia! You are a great nation and a great people!

Do whatever it takes to preserve your decency and don't let the west push homosexuality on you!

God bless you for saying that. The west have forgotten the teachings of Jesus long time ago. Dollars and Euros are their new Gods. Their politicians follow anyone with money like the h**o lobby to the extent to force poor Africans to have sex with their kinds. It seems their blackmail sound like this: If you don't have sex man to man and women to women you will not get aid. Those who oppose these gay bullies in the western world are scared to death to utter a word. Their criminal press will tear them apart.

The African homophobia came from Western colonialist missionaries.

Jesus' teachings never mentioned homosexuality.

If you're so concerned about locking up or stoning "sinners" based on scripture then you should be braying ignorantly about those who covet unrepentantly. You aren't.

It's merely a sexual problem of homophobia, based on misogyny, nothing "scriptural."

Your blackmailing word of "homophobia" doesn't have any effect on us. Go and blackmail those pc westerners. Only savages and perverts advocate same sex activities. Tell us Mr. Democrat, don't we have a right to be heterosexuals?

Hey cretin, you did not address your bearing of false witness: Jesus never said anything about homosexuality as you claim up there. Repent of your lying or burn.

You did not address why you in comparison virtually ignore the _Commandments_ about coveting or taking the lawd's name in vain. You therefore don't adhere to scripture, you just use it as a crutch for you psycho sexual issues.

You did not refute the historical imposition of anti glbt bias into Africa - it came from the same Westerners you now denounce (when they're pro lgbt equality.)

All you could do is ignorantly cry about the word, "homophobia."

You had better get right with Jaysus, you sinner. No more bearing of false witness, or failing to live the golden rule, or selecting out only parts of scripture that you like to follow.

You hypocritical, jeesus trash.

Good job. Ethiopians are not ready...may 50 years from now.
USA was way ahead in technology and human development back in 1960s compare to today's Ethiopia. However prior to 1962, sodomy was a felony in every state.
Respect the voice of the majority.

You're mixed up because the US has progressed socially and technologically both since the 60s.

Now go stone those who violate the _Commandment_ against disrespecting one's parents..if any of this is about scripture. Then we'll know you aren't simply sexually distressed in some way.

Nothing is free. You don't expect to have your rights to be handed to you without putting up a fight do you ?. If you are American , you can't fight for Ethiopian homosexuals. You have to let Ethiopians to deal with their own issues. Till Ethiopia produces homosexual scientists, inventors, and scholars to defend themselves, they will continue to be undermined by the society.

You're making things up because of your weak mind.

About the entire world (eventually) fought apartheid, most successfully with economic and cultural boycotts.

You're right that nothing comes free. Ethiopia and Uganda are now going to face economic and cultural boycotts for their cafeteria christianist bigotry.

Tough.

And go pass similar laws against those who covet unrepentantly, servant of sa tan. Tee hee.

No wonder why the struggle against apartheid wasn't a success, whites still control South Africa economy.
Over 99 % of Ethiopia's population is against sodomy, we made it clear that we don't accept homosexuals, not now . Stop meddling in other people's business. I only trust hypocrite America when it stands up against the worst human rights abuser Saudis.

Hey stupid fake christianist, you dropped your lying, hypocritical invocation of scripture this time. What happened? Did you convert to Islam in the past four hours?

Sodomy is something heterosexuals engage in, contrary to your post. Apparently you know as little about sex as you do about scripture.

You can be bigots...without getting Western government aid, I hope.

Of course the US government is hypocritical. It has larger interests in the Mideast than in Ethiopia. But even so, Saudi laws don't have anything enforced like Uganda or Uganda. So you couldn't even be honest or correct about that.

I feel really sad for Ethiopian/Eritrean/Somali or any homosexuals who have to put up with such crap and false shame; even then being in a 1st world country it's tough to be a homosexual and putting up such a ban as this in the 21 century is very backwards and wrong.
