"Ssebaggala said he had started collecting signatures on Tuesday of members of parliament in favour of re-introducing the bill and that he expected to have over 200 - in a house of 383 members - by the end of Wednesday.

Homosexuality is taboo in much of Africa and is illegal in 37 countries there. But the punishments in Uganda were among the harshest.

Under the Anti-Homosexuality Act, the crime of “aggravated homosexuality”- someone with HIV having gay sex or anyone having gay sex with someone considered “vulnerable”, such as a disabled person - was punishable by life in jail. "

I told you gays will lose in the end. LOL

I forgot to include the most important part.

Quote:

"During the bill signing, Museveni said homosexuality was emblematic of the West's “social imperialism” in Africa. Powerful Christian groups with links to US evangelical movements call homosexuality an imported Western social evil."

Is it okay by you if straight people have sex with the disabled or pass HIV? There's no reason to limit such prohibitions to gay people, unless straights are reserving these things for themselves.

You go ahead and count your "wins" according to crumbling, third-world nations. Maybe someday the U.S. will be able to be as good as Uganda, and we can censor our media, beat and torture political dissenters, and maybe even invade the Congo. Hope so?

It must suck to live in imperialist Tennessee. Are you going to try to endure, or will you be moving to the promised land of central Africa very soon?

South Africa was the first country on the globe to enshrine lgbt rights right in its Constitution.(Though the actual practice has fallen short as Mandela and Tutu aged.)

If marriage equality throughout most of the developed world while Uganda has anti gay pogroms is "losing" then that's quite a limited little universe the sick, closet case fundies exist in.

I hope Uganda does make its hate overt with such laws. Their foreign aid should be severely restricted. Better than their being stealth bigots and getting full aid.

That's because Powerful Christian groups ARE an imported Western social evil and most people in them are closet cases just like you Princess.

Funny is that the homosexual culture was brought to the U S and west from Europe and Africa before and after Columbus

IDIOTS the world rotates so the sun rises in the East and sets in the West.

So everything comes from the East

Who can even tell what you're trying to argue there?

But you surely are ignorant of longstanding gender bending traditions among Native Americans, which sometimes included same sex couples.

Yes.you are correct!

In native American culture homosexual men stayed in camp with the women and cooked and washed clothing and such.

As for the gays that came over from Europe,what with those silk stockings and satin pants,no wonder they scalped those fruits.

Wrong bigoted Moron. They were the Shaman of the tribe. And there weren't any gays that came over from Europe either. It was the Puritans were shipped over because they weren't wanted and too backwards in Europe. So see Princess, It was your great, great, great grand pappy that was wearing the silk panties and stockings. POS

Doesn't matter you still don't know factual history, but I wouldn't be surprised if alcoholism and delusional-ism runs in the family.
