    Please don’t just be disgusted and do nothing people. We have to fight back cos no one else will. Contact the president, Paul Biya at http://www.prc.cm. Also your department of foreign affairs. I feel so sorry for these men, it would be hell to be gay in Cameroon.

    1. please sign the petition here:

      It only takes a moment, and please ask your friends to do the same

  2. One would think that they would want to become less primitive and backwards but apparently not.

  3. Horrific!

    “We are in a war against homosexuals,” he said. That’s because in a real war their army could fight their way out of a paper bag, so they choose to go after that sector of their society that they have already marginalised. Damned another President who has been talking to Mugabe’s insects.

      That should be “could NOT fight”

  5. Typically backward African country.

    Africa has become an unsustainable burden on the world.

    Time to cut the apron strings and let Africa fend financially for itself.

    1. Absolutely. No more aid to savage kleptocracies.

    2. So, what you are seeking is an isolationist policy where we do not trade with Africa either? Which countries should we trade with?

    3. As black person i agree with bro

  6. Stop ALL aid to Cameroon and any other that acts in such a barbaric way! They will never listen to other nations so we must use the tool they do listen too. Money!

  7. DO NOT FEED THE TROLL

  8. TROLL ALERT.

    DO NOT FEED THE TROLL

    1. Did someone say something?

      1. nope…

  9. TROLL TROLL TROLL

    DO NOT FEED THE TROLL

  10. TROLLING

    DO NOT FEED THE TROLL

  11. The Cameroons is a country that still has mob violence against alleged “witches”. That says it all really. Except check out whether there has been a growth in megachurches there that are part of the antigay industry.

    Along with eating shrimp. Go troll somewhere else.

  13. Yet another African country where homosexuality need to be decriminalized.

  14. A war against homosexuals? perhaps he needs to rethink that! he might better understand it as a war against reality! As more and more gay people take a stand against the archaic and inhuman oppression they face in these countries.

    The more people realize they should neither have to fear or live with these injustices the more their voices are echoed in support from the west.

    It’s too bad that these law makers can’t be jailed for the prejudiced thinking and injustices to humanity.
