Way to go, PIERRE, oops, I mean MAURICE, I mean, oh, what false names are you using NOW, little liar?

Monterey now, huh? THAT'S a new one. I've been to Monterey many times and I doubt if such a lovely city would even allow the likes of you to even drive through.

Pick one name and register, coward.

Typical hater, can dish out hate, but is too cowardly to own his hate and keeps making up false names and towns. TYPICAL.

What a Shiite hole society. Let's stop sending them welfare and see how big their mouths are after they have to eat roots and berries. What is sickening is that many of our Jesus loving Christians agree with the Muslims full on. Hypocrites, all of them.

Hey, I'm a Nigerian. And no, we don't exactly survive on US welfare, so we wouldn't be eating roots and berries if it stopped coming in. In truth, you import about sixty percent of Nigeria's oil production (and Nigeria's oil production is quite large) and I guess that's one of the reasons why the US is being so reserved about responding to the new law (as opposed to Canada, which immediately canceled a state visit). Then again, Nigeria is not a Muslim state. This country is about half Muslim and half Christian, and the fourteen-year jail term mostly applies to the Christian south (in the north, which is Muslim, the penalty is death).

Just thought I'd keep the record straight.

However, I think you'll find that a lot of Nigerians (myself included) find this new law unnecessary at best and frankly abhorrent at the worst. If you're interested, I posted a reaction to the issue on my blog: http://rebelinthemaking.wordpress.com/2014/01...

Hope this gives a bit of perspective :)

It's a damned shame virtually the only Nigerians able to speak up on the issue are all expats! Doesn't matter Christian or Muslim, both religions are being disgustingly perverted on this issue. This law is merely diversion from the sewer known as Nigerian politics. The price for doing so will ultimately destroy Nigeria from the inside out and lead to the death of even more from the scourge of AIDS.

But I'm not an expat :/
And I think I'm Christian. It's not the religion, it's people's hypocrisy.
And funny enough, the overwhelming majority of AIDS cases here are heterosexuals. The active LGBT community is very small, because of societal pressures.

I'm sure there are lovely people in Nigeria, but they are under the nasty thumb of their stupid religious mullahs, or stupid Christian pastors. Just praise Allah or Jesus that YOU'RE in England where they know how to BEHAVE!

The overwhelming percentage of AIDS cases are homosexuals, that's why they can't donate blood.
So, let some Philly whore who turns tricks with 20 guys a night donate blood. Since she is straight, her blood will be as pure as the driven snow. Maybe if YOU need a transfusion, you can have her hook right into you. Or, one of her Johns, since they are hetero, they are IMMUNE from HIV. according to YOUR ahem, cough cough, "LOGIC".

Societal pressures such as whipping, stoning and setting offenders on fire, burning them to death in the street. Purely savage behavior, far, far beyond hypocracy.

It is too bad that we do not have the death penalty for authoritarians who hate freedom. That would be one way to get you to stop spreading your insecurities and fear around topix.

Good post. Unfortunately most topix posters would rather go with their hot-headed, over reacting emotions instead of taking in the facts you presented.

Speaking of savage behavior:

This is barbaric, executing a person who is gay. Maybe segregating homosexuals from normal society, but not the death penalty.

Golly, just like your parents wanted to do to those uppity negro folks. Hard to separate generations of hate, ignorance and bigotry. Your life must be pure hell.

It is far more likely you are HIV positive if you're a queer. The odds go way up

We should segregate Christians away from normal society. Christians are not normal.
