The antigay (who don't currently live in these countries) will never, never, never, never, never move to them.

Watch their actions, not their words.

They make pretense of adoring these countries for passing these laws, but they will

never,

never,

never

move to them.

That speaks volumes that are priceless, to be quite frank.

We need to understand that Uganda, like so many of its neighbors, is still in the throes of political evolution as a society. They have a long way to go before they are cultivated and mature enough to be fully admitted to the club of fully functioning nations. Plus, in their innocence, they have become easy prey for fast-talking American preachermen, all of whom have led them backwards. Parts of America have fallen prey to this as well and have been trying to move this country toward the rear. I'm not forgiving them, rather trying to understand them. Uganda 2013 is America 1613.

At this rate; Uganda will have more people living free in jail than they have taxpayers running loose

Is this an efficient use of US Foreign Aid?

The important thing is that they are properly dealing with queers.
YES! The gay people will be partying down in substantial buildings with indoor plumbing at taxpayer expense; while the homophobes in the streets still tote water jugs on their heads and live in tents flapping in the breeze
.
WHAT a deal!

What's so important -- and Sir Andrew highlights this, although my focus and wording are different -- is that this "victory" is so Pyrrhic. Look at what the antigay celebrate: a backwards nation whose primitive response to such an issues speaks volumes on the world stage.

Nothing about America or other educated nations changes.

Nothing about the battle for gay rights in America changes.

Instead, the antigay engage in the cant of "celebrating" the so-called "victory" of a nation they wouldn't be caught dead moving to.

The *REAL* celebration is New Mexico's court victory, and other court victories in America which are 100% bound to follow in the years to come.

These severe punishments for homosexuality were always disregarded in past centuries ; for the simple reason that too many important personages ( like King James Ist ) would have spent their lives in jail . That was the case of he who was considered the greatest genius of the age , Francis Bacon , who strode both Tudor and Stuart England . It will be mostly disregarded in Uganda and for the same reason , be sure of that .

Comparing a Ugandan prison to an American penal institution is idiotic and laughable.
