The Pecman Posted February 17, 2014 Report Share Posted February 17, 2014 Uganda President Yoweri Museveni is about to pass the most restrictive, unbelievable anti-gay legislation on the planet, promising life in prison for anybody caught having sex with a same-sex partner. They even want to extradite and prosecute any Ugandan citizen whom they discover has gay sex outside the country! As this story on The New Civil Rights Movement says: The Anti-Homosecuality bill today provides for life in prison for “aggravated homosexuality,” a broad and legally insufficiently defined term. It also provides for mandatory jail terms for those who engage in sexual activities with a member of the same gender. The AHB also demands that any person who knows of someone who is gay must report them to law enforcement or face jail themselves, and provides for stiff penalties for any person, company, corporation, media outlet or other entity that knows or supports LGBT people or LGBT civil rights. The article goes on to say that the reason why Uganda developed these homophobic, ultra-fundamentalist religious values in their country is because of the efforts of American missionaries in the last 50 years. One of them, Scott Lively, is now on trial in the U.S. for crimes against humanity, which I get the impression is much worse than a parking ticket. If this isn't the most outrageous news story so far this year, I don't know what is. I'd like to lobby all American businesses who have branches in Uganda to pull out, and I'd like to see all American money yanked from the country as soon as possible. This violates every known concept of decency I can think of, just horrible, violent, reprehensible behavior. Quote Link to comment
