Uganda Wants to Kill and Imprison Gay People (Gay Rights - Change.org)

An anti-gay American religious group is a big reason why laws like this are being pushed.

Should proposals such as this be tolerated?

Appalling as this is, I'm not surprised really. It's not like Uganda is the Poster Child for Human Rights.

Uhmm how about it is none of our business what happens in Uganda? How about we have our own problems to deal with and need to get our own house in order instead of worrying about everyone elses?

how about I agree with this guy....I dont even care what gays do over here...let alone what they do over in F'in Uganda. It will be interesting to see how our President implements his minimal/hands off approach to foreign affairs on this one though.

The article said that if an HIV positive person has sex with a person of the same gender. They could get the death penalty.

It isn't a surprise considering it is Uganda we are talking about. It is a very old fashioned and Statist (fascist) country. Their potentially strict laws on gays are really bad.

Uganda is hardly conservative. The have been on the cutting edge of national socialism for decades.They totally control the econmy and the prodcut of that econmy which is sicalist and very liberal. They supresss news to reflect the states view just l;iike other liberal socialiost countries. Much like socialist they have decided to stop Aids by executing people who stray from the states rules.Kind of reminds one of teh liberals advocating elim9nation of elderly on this forum.Every liberal view in fact.
