Yes, I agree with you. Obama is wrong. It is always a mistake to give in to the homosexual agenda.

President Obama signs bills into law in the US that many Americans disagree with, and also many heads of states of other nations disagree with. Every president is responsible to their own nation's people represented by their parliament MPs. As far as that goes,Mr. Museveni has every right to be proud to sign a bill into law that the representatives of the Ugadan people have asked him to sign. Needless to say not every Ugandan approves this bill, however the majority do. By the way Mr. Obama, democracy is about the majority rule - I have heard you say it before, time and time again.
Secondly, Mr. Obama cannot put American foreign policy in Africa on line over this issue of homosexuality! Americans are not that stupid!
Politically, Mr. Obama has done all he can do - make noise! let Uganda know that he does not approve their decision. Tomorrow we wll move on to the important agendas.
Ugandans need to do a better job at explaining what is in the bill and how this will affect 'openly gay' Ugandans and foreigners who don't break the law but nonetheless may practice homosexual activity in privacy of their homes that does not affect the public.
Specifically what can cause a Ugandan to get life in prison that is spelled out in this bill? No rumours, just clear text from the bill - someone print it here. What if a foreigner is convicted of the same crime in Uganda? do they get deported or locked up in Luzira for life?
We shall lose some tourism $$ as a result of this law, but how much? Let's say it is $5million a year because the gays and those who don't like Uganda's law. But this can be offset by more tourists who support Uganda's frontline position on this issue. Keep Uganda clean for God and my Country!

It must be sad to be as brainwashed as you. Try to think outside the square...
