    Okay, Okay! I get it! yes the concern from around the world is being noted and peoples reaction commendable! Of much greater importance is “What are you going to do about it?”

      Exactly…well said

      I could start by asking you the same question.

      1. PantoHorse 16 Jan, 10:05am

        Give over, Derek. Whingy, petulant ‘what are you doing’, ‘no, what are you doing, ‘no I asked first’ is hardly a sophisticated contribution.

        Well, to paraphrase a saying; those who can, do, and those who can’t become critics. You seem to have chosen your place with the latter, rather than with the former.

      Agree, with CAPITAL LETTERS, Steve_R

    Here’s an idea for Nigerian LGBT activists: Make a list of a few thousand homophobic Nigerians, and out them as closet gays to the police. Then sit back and wait. The following evidence should clinch it:

    Repeat until homophobic persecution ends.

    1. I have NO IDEA why you have received thumbs down for this, Derek. The research and evidence you present is EXACTLY what I have been saying for years. The bigger the homophobe – the bigger the closet case. Putin, Mugabe, countless US TV evangelists: to me, it is PATENTLY obvious why they are so obsessed with homosexuality when millions and millions of people are not. It is because they have been conditioned by religion to despise their own same-sex attraction. There IS no other explanation. And to say they are anti-gay through ‘religious belief’ is simply rubbish because they totally ignore so many other biblical so-called ‘sins’. When the world finally accepts that ‘homophobe = gay-and-in-denial’, homophobia will die.

    Please stop regurgitating the same badly written rubbish. This senstence in particular needs attention:

    “It also bans people who register, operate or participate in gay clubs, societies or organisations, or who publicly show that they are in a same-sex relationship will be punishable with up to ten years in prison – this includes couples holding hands.”

    People are going to be banned? What does that even mean? Do you actually mean it “bans people from registering, operating…” etc? I’m trying to curb my obsession with pointing out how flipping awful your writing is, but I find this lack of proof reading and unthinking regurgitation so very irritating.

    Oh, yes, no doubt they’re currently having meetings to discuss the parameters of planning for a meeting where they’ll discuss who should be present at the following meeting to discuss what biscuits they’ll have at the future meeting planned to organize a series of meetings to adequately plan for more meetings…

    The overpaid and ineffective UN is a disgrace. It seems to be solely designed to make itself money, paid by member states to sit around tables endlessly and debate things in the most ridiculously weak sentiments imaginable.

    “Disappointed”, “concerned” and “unhelpful” are words Moon often uses in the face of disgusting and despicable actions by governments, and these are NOT adequate ways to describe these situations. How about “criminal”, “barbaric” and “sub-Human” as ways to describe the leaders of these nations?

    Grow a spine Moon, and that goes for the rest of the UN staff and members too. Weak little imbeciles.
