We'd rather have Sweden and .. ( a long list of the most civilized countries on earth ) than corrupt ones like Uganda , Nigeria and the rest of Retard-Lands , thank you .

I think this is exactly what is meant by "money is the root of all evil." Money is used to bribe and coerce. People throw scruples and standards out the window to either get it or keep. Countries, companies, organizations, and people who put scruples and standards first will come out the winners in the long run. Liberals love to talk about "the right side of history" and "the wrong side of history." History won't record that. It will only show successes and failures and what resulted from each. History will show that gays bullied, coerced, and bribed to force others into compliance with what they wanted, Maybe individuals have done some convincing of individuals, but I believe that history will eventually show that the society just knuckled under to the constant pressure, not that it had a true change of opinion.

You're right. Just like you, Uganda's leaders don't care a rat's fanny about the suffering they cause their people.

Hey strap on, that's what being marginalized looks like. No help. Foreign aid is voluntary.

And we all know you oppose sanctions against Putin and against Iran. guffaw

So what you're saying is that it's a GOOD thing that gay Ugandans are imprisoned for life for the "crime" of loving someone of their same gender?

Of course that's what defaming, sick bigots think. They want glbt people dead or disappeared.

Why would you even ask? Or have to ask?

They pushily, vehemently claim they "don't need" the aid, more or less, so take them at their word.

Cut them off.

Then turn away and go about your business.

THANK YOU for some of the responses in this thread. If Uganda doesn't care, why should you?

That they claim not to care should be your *first* line of defense. If this were up to any of a number of sensible people in this thread, the country would be literally cut off and then that's the end of this business ...

... and everyone is satisfied.

Just thought I'd give him the chance to clarify/defend his statement. Sometimes people don't realize how horrible their position is until it's filtered down to its most basic elements.

The correct phrase is "The LOVE of money is the root of all evil".

Call them savages if you will but at least they're civilized enough to know not to stick their dicks in each other's asses. That's way more than I can say for you.
