    Stop all this pussyfooting around now. Cut off aid immediately until the bill is withdrawn completely. Don’t even wait for the debate or any outcome, either they withdraw the bill or aid will not be reinstated. We’ve played this game long enough.

    Elsewhere it has been suggested that what Ugandans are really demanding is a share of the oil wealth of the country, which has not been developed by the corrupt governing party for reasons of self interest, and that the Kill the Gays Bill always pops up as a distraction from the demos going on about the oil issue.

  3. Stop the aid now. It will be much harder to reverse this vile law it once it is established.

  4. Stop the aid now and arrest all the America Christians involved with going into Uganda to push for this “kill the gays” bill they started to do just that murder gays, this is a human right violation and these criminals need to be brought to justice for stirring up these Africans and using them to do their dirty work. This is a sign that the anti-gay Christians are losing their war on gays and they have lost their minds and are now pushing the Africans to kill the gays to make up for their loses in other countries to LGBT rights. The real criminals are the anti-gay Christians who are pushing people to “kill the gays”.

  5. It’s time for the US and UK to simply state that foreign aid will be discontinued should the bill pass. Asking gay US and UK constituents to underwrite grants to countries that thow us in jail for existing is not acceptable. Uganda isn’t worth saving as a country if that is the way it behaves. The sooner the country changes hands, the better.

      OK. They what do we do about Saudi Arabia and the 77 others? http://bit.ly/Tj9vEW Or does oil continue to shape foreign policy in both countries?

  6. “Ugandans “are demanding it,” she previously declared.”

    Particularly those without clothes on their backs or food in their bellies or schools for their kids. They get up in the morning and think we must lock up all the homosexuals for life. Then they go on to wonder how they will eat today.

  7. Make no mistake, this is what the backers of C4M etc, would like to see here if they could get it. They want to portray homophobia as ‘African culture’ because they think ‘liberals’ will be too afraid of allegations of racism to oppose them.

    the attention to Uganda masks a greater issue: http://bit.ly/Tj9vEW

  9. Was this the ugandan invited to london to a human rights convention?

    1. Yes, she was. I emailed them and they replied:
      “…we do not discriminate against delegates on the basis of them having different views on key human rights…”

      How noble of them!

      1. What a disgusting hypocritical scenario, that an evil christian is allowed to attend and welcomed (by phoney liberals purporting to have interest in human rights)to a human rights convention , who is guilty of crimes against humanity.

    Don’t these idiots understand that it was the Western nations that poisoned their countries with this christian religious filth.

    They squeal about altering their culture.

    Their culture was nothing to do with Abrahamic religions until the British missionaries ruined it for them.

    If this bill passes, then supporting politicians should quite simply be tried in the Hague for crimes against humanity.

    I feel terrible for the LGBT Ugandans who will be persecuted using this legislation. I think we have to demand that our countries immediately stop all aid to these unchristian inhumane monsters, since it will surely be misused if given.
