    Why should we financially support any country that has such little regard for not only life but little regard for any quality of life.

    If countries depend on foreign aid that Usually (not always) comes because of greedy, corrupt governments who use foreign aid and any of their own wealth to promote themselves. This should stop. We do have a right to decide where our money goes and who it goes too.

    Any country with such hate does not deserve any help until they can show respect for their people No matter who they might happen to be!

  2. I’ve registered with avaaz.org but have little hope that will help.

    The article says “International donors have threatened to cut off aid”. Which donors? There is hardly any coverage about this issue in the media.

    I’m sorry to say, but most people really do not care what happens in Africa. Gays in Africa are just a nuisance.

  3. Where is the International outrage? I’ve heard absolutely nothing about this on any of the television news channels in America. This is equivalent to Hitler’s extermination of Jews and other undesirables. How can this be happening in 2012?

    When you have organisations such as the TUC actively hosting seminars for organisations and financial institutions to plow money and investment in to Uganda, then there is no hope for our LGBT brothers and sisters . . .

    So much for the left-wing . . . they’re more right wing than the Tories at times.

    1. The only thing I’ve seen the TUC doing is to try to get employers there to support people with HIV/AIDS. Can you give me a link to this information, please?

  5. I just signed the petition and posted it on Facebook. It took 30 seconds. Do it.

  6. If that bill goes through, it will be the end of Uganda, as it will revert back to its pagan bush state, without international funding unless of course China and/or Russia are unwise enough to throw away their money into the bottomless pit of Uganda.

    1. If christian fundamentalism corrupts the entire power structure of a country, maybe we can foresee the inevitable by comparing Uganda with the Waco, Texas phenomena.

      In other words, when a community embraces fundamental christianity, it will interpret any opposition – or any attempt to help – as a sign of the End of Times as per a literal reading of the Apocalypse, and it will either defend itself to the last man or self-destruct.

      This entire mess cannot be turned around by the blind zealots who are responsible for it, namely Martin Ssempa, Scott Lively.. Et al.

      As for me, i did the the petition and i urge everyone here to do the same.

      1. … I did sign the petition …

    2. How will it turn into a ‘pagan bush state’ while it has the support of evangelical sects from the USA? Do you imagine those people have no money?

      (And in any event, surely it’d turn into a Christian ‘bush state’?)

    The more pressure we can put on Uganda the better. This must be stopped.

  8. Its madness!

    What about a mass LGBT kiss in right outside the Ugandan High Commision this Friday lunchtime.

    By the way, I love their flag with the demented chicken on it!

    1. It’s a ‘Crested Crane’ not a ‘demented chicken’ lol

    Signed.

    I doubt it will do much though since the Ugandan government has got its marching orders from the real masters of this new religious colony – the American evangelicals.
