Two young guys walk down the street, hand in hand. They sit on a bench in the shade by the river, gazing into each other’s eyes. In this chaotic world these two people have found love, and that love is going to cost them their lives.
Interestingly, the bill also says that anyone who promotes gay and lesbian rights is committing an offence, making this post illegal in their country and punishable by seven years in prison. By putting up such stringent measures they hope to stop anyone speaking out against their insanity.
Under a new law proposed in Uganda, anyone caught having homosexual sex can be arrested and faces a death sentence. Other clauses in the law state that anyone caught even touching another person of the same sex with the intention of having homosexual sex faces life imprisonment. Furthermore, anyone witnessing one of these offences (in other words, everyone who saw the two guys holding hands) and doesn’t report it to the authorities within twenty-four hours faces up to three years in jail as well as a fine. David Bahati, the MP who introduced the bill, said “Homosexuality is not a right. It is a foreign behaviour imported and promoted by people using the poverty of our country to expound bad behaviour.” Obviously this sick bastard counts murdering people simply for falling in love as good behaviour, which makes me wonder what he’s still doing on the street instead of facing life imprisonment himself.
The bill has been universally reviled around the world by all sane people, with only a few fundamentalist Christians (a couple of American groups of these insane horses actually helped to author the bill) and other ignorant bigots offering support. The Coalition on Human Rights and Constitutional Law expressed it’s outright disgust at the bill, saying “This is an attempt by those in government to whip up sentiments of fear and hatred by lumping together predatory acts that violate the rights of vulnerable sections of our society with sexual acts between consenting adults.” That’s right folks, David “I Like To Kill People Because It’s Fun” Bahati introduced this bill saying it will help fight the spread of HIV (because an entire 14 percent of HIV in the country is spread by homosexuals, and they imagine the rest falls out of the sky) and stop child molesters (because obviously they’re the same thing if you’re a tiny minded politician who gets hard at the thought of slaughtering people). A spokesman for the CHRCL expressed it best by saying “A better title for this bill would be the anti-human rights bill.”
So, how does the Ugandan government see the uproar caused by the introduction of this bill? They’re delighted. They believe that it’s a sign that they’re not only offering strong leadership on issues that the world is afraid to deal with, but that the world will learn from them. James Nsaba Buturo, the ethics and integrity minister for Uganda, said “It is with joy that we see that everyone is interested in what Uganda is doing, and it is an opportunity for Uganda to provide leadership where it matters most.” James, if you really care about leadership you will kill all the supporters of this bill and then kill yourself, you sick bigoted son of a whore!
