  1. Include a ban on the arch bigot homophobe in the Vatican too. He’s done just as much harm indirectly by hateful rhetoric and inciting homophobia as a result.

  2. This should be enforced on all with homophobic views from Religious leaders, to world politicans, to immigrants!

  3. I don’t think he should be banned.

    I think Bahati should be allowed to enter the country and then arrested for his crimes against humanity.

    Attempting to legislate for sexual genocide (albeit in a different country) should be regarded as a major crime.

    Bahati should be jailed for his attempts to legalise genocide.

  4. Perhaps he’s been invited over to assist the Conservative election campaign, he’s just the sort of person their blue haired Christian voters will go for!

    Maybe we could expel people with homophobic views Squidgy?

    That would mean that most of the Conservative party would have to leave the UK.

    P.S.

    Where is Vulpus Rex these days?

    Vulpus Rex had been doing this “countdown of days to Conservative victory” thing.

    I told him it was very foolish to count the chickens before they were hatched.

    Then we had the TV debate.

    Now Vulpus Rex seems to have gone.

  6. Ban the Pope aswell
    He contributes nothing to organised society except hate for minorities and shelter for paedophiles

    Why, when God loves everyone, would his representative on Earth tell people they are going to hell and cover up abuse of kids?

  7. Why would we want these evil men in out country in any case? Perhaps we should allow them and arrest them both for promoting genocide and hatred (both against the law in the UK!) AND whlist they are being questioned ask them both about the nuns being raped in Africa by Priests as reported in the news yesterday!

  8. Patrick James:-

    Your arguement doesn’t make sense being that I was talking about people coming into the country, As this story suggests.

    Also how can you say you want to rid of this ‘them and us’ attitude when you have already created a ‘them and us’ amongst the gay community. Just because some gay people choose to be equally minded like everybody else.

  9. He will be allowed into the UK like many other homophobe’s. We allow dance hall artist to gig in the UK who believe gays should have acid poured over them and burnt/shot.

    of course he’ll be allowed in:
    he’s black and homophobic
    not
    white and islamophobic

    Canada’s Prime Minister, Conservative Stephen Harper, was among the first to publicly condemn Bahati’s attempt to legalize homophobia in Uganda.

    The Bill needs to be rejected in its entirety.

    Also, I hope Bahati is banned from entering the UK; in fact, I hope this man is booted out of the Ugandan Parliament, a flawed democracy if ever there was one (no opposition).

    Whatever comment I make is bound to be racist, hetrophobic or a collection of other words which are hard to pronounce.
    Methinks I’ll keep my comments to myself and trust that the b****d rots in hell

  13. Simon M – excellent point!

  14. Let him in and lock him up so he knows how it feels.

    I only wish we could put him on trial for his life too!

  15. Ratzinger, Bahati and Phelps all locked up together in the Scrubbs in a cell for three, awaiting trial/deportation; they could slug it out together.

    What a nest of vipers that would be…

    Unlikely, but I can dweem…

    No comments about “dweem on..!” thanks…

    Keith.

    SimonM I agree with you 100%. The bastard should be Hung by his toes like Musolini in a public square..

  17. @SimonM – I agree 100%

  18. Har Davids 20 Apr 2010, 9:46pm

    May be banned? Shouldn’t anyone suggesting killing people he doesn’t approve of be banned? This man is a psycho, not fit to be called homo sapiens.

  19. DONT_GIVE_A_DAMN_ABOUT_HOMOS 21 Apr 2010, 12:22am

    THIS MAN IS DOING THE RIGHT THING BY PASSING THIS AND I HOPE IT PASSES BECAUSE YOU HOMOSEXUALS ARE STILL SLEEPING AND SPREADING HIV LIKE THE COMMON COLD.

    @19:

    Don’t be so shy.

  21. Religionist 21 Apr 2010, 1:28am

    Good Lord, why would any religious man need to go to homosexually perverted Britain?

  22. Jean-Paul Bentham 21 Apr 2010, 3:02am

    …while he can be viewing gay porn in Martin Ssempa’s church???

    Anti-Homosexuality Bill in Parliament.

    Kampala – A Ugandan parliamentary panel said on Friday there is little backing for the country’s widely-condemned anti-gay bill and no timetable had been set for its debate.

    “I think it is useless and will not achieve what it intends to achieve,” said Alex Ndeezi, a member of the Legal and Parliamentary Affairs Committee tasked with reviewing the bill before it can be presented to the house.

    —–

    The panel’s chairman Stephen Tashyoba said the draft law was not a priority.

    “As far as I am concerned, we really have more urgent matters to discuss like electoral reforms, which are already behind schedule,” he said.

    – AFP

    So killing Uganda’s homosexuals is really not a priority with this country’s Parliamentarians.

    Incidentally, everyone remotely associated with the anti-gay bill has taken their distance from Bahati and especially Martin Ssempa who has had his PhD revoked.

    Now maybe the rev. can show his home sex-movies in church…allowing the good people of Kampala to soak up “how it should be done”.

    Bahati would finally be showing a glimmer of wisdom if he did stay away from the UK.

    Hee should be arrested for inciting hatred and for hate speech. And tried for murder. Hitler only killed two people as far as we know – a niece, and himself

    His words killed 50 million.

    Bahati should be tried, hopefully convicted, and hanged. Or we could go back to the good old days in England and much of Europe, when condemnded people were burned at the stake. Thanks to the catholic church otherwise now known as the Church of Pedophilia world wide.

    And the German Pope, who UNexcommunicated a holocaust denier, a Bishop williamson last year, could share Bahatis well deserved fate.

    Williamson is a holocaust denier. But by UNexcommunicating him, Pope RATZInger brings him and his 600000 mad followers back into the church.

    BTW, ARgentina threw Williamson out of the country. I think he moved to England.

    “Civil rights are civil rights.

    There are no persons who are not entitled to their civil rights.

    We have to recognize that we have a long way to go, but we have to go that way together.”

    - Civil rights pioneer Dorothy Height, speaking to the Human Rights Campaign in 1997.

    Height (recipient of 20 honorary doctorates) died yesterday at the age of 98.

  27. hey 19 who you calling a HOMOSEXUAL? I’m GAY!!!!!

    From the Church in Wales’ website:

    “It was wonderful to discover that the local MP, Mr David Bahati, also had a Masters degree from the University of Wales and had spent time studying in Cardiff. Wales’ influence often stretches further than we realise.”

    The Right Reverend Carl Cooper, ex-Bishop of St. David’s, wrote that. Who it seems, committed adultery with his Chaplain! Hypocrisy, never a strong point within church hierarchies… eh?

  29. “Good Lord, why would any religious man need to go to homosexually perverted Britain?”

    Quite right too…. lets leave all the backward uneducated hate mongers like this so called “religions man” outside our great nation. Any chance of you leaving too? Or maybe just start with getting a dictionary, you illiterate twat….

  30. The homophobic “International Tranformation Network” is very much involved in what is now happening in Africa. You can find out some about the weird Ed Silvoso and their dangerous Christian dominionist plans of Harvest Evangelism here:
    http://www.harvestevan.org/international-transformation-network.html

  31. Here’s a link to a brief Wiki expose of the global International Transformation Network and it’s heavy involvement in anti-gay Ugandan policies.
    http://rationalwiki.com/wiki/International_Transformation_Network

  32. Nos. 19 and 21…..a couple of closeted self-loathers. Isn’t it amazing how they troll gay websites to vent, so tranparent. The only perversion are your dark closets and apparent obsession with gay sex. Crawl back into the cave from whence you both came.

  33. Jean-Paul Bentham 22 Apr 2010, 6:09am

    @30, 31: Thanks for the links, Paul. And I quote from Wiki:

    “The International Transformation Network is part of Harvest Evangelism, led by Ed Silvoso.

    As the name suggests, the main concern of ITN is the “transformation” of homosexuals into heterosexuals.

    In the case of ITN, this is done through exorcism via baptism.

    They have also placed “blessings” on cities to reduce crime and poverty and have recorded alleged miracle healings of HIV/AIDS.

    The ultimate goal of the ITN is the complete “transformation” of all elements of society.

    While this may be unrealistic, the ITN does hold considerable sway in the governments of some countries.

    For example, Silvoso has claimed that the Philippine National Police Force is directing its officers to take courses in transformation principles.

    However, the main power base of the ITN is in Africa, with an entire branch of the organization dedicated to the continent.

    The ITN and Uganda

    Silvoso and the ITN have very close ties to the government of Uganda.

    Representatives of the ITN have met with members of the Ugandan government, including the president and his wife.

    MPs from the Ugandan government have appeared in videos produced by the ITN-connected Sentinel Group and attended ITN conferences.

    The ITN’s position in Uganda is particularly troubling given the proposed Anti-Homosexuality Bill of 2009.

    The bill – which would add “aggravated homosexuality” and “promotion of homosexuality” to the criminal code, the former as a death penalty offense – was introduced by

    David Bahati and Benson Obua-Ogwal,

    who are both connected to ITN through the College of Prayer Uganda.”

    The cheapest book in the gift shop is a cool $20, and yes, my gaydar did go off unexpectedly and uncontrollably when I saw Ed Silvosos’s pic.

  34. Jean-Paul Bentham 22 Apr 2010, 6:28am

    Here is The Sentinal Group’s website:

    http://www.glowtorch.org/

    where we can easily see what our friend AdrianT use to call “extraordinary claims…on video!

    So ITU is already in the UK, innit. In the Hebrides, is it?

    I expect that’s where Bahati would be going if he hadn’t been recognized by the international community as a criminal hate-monger who should be locked up for his own good.

    But I ain’t bitter.
