Yoweri Museveni to sign anti-gay bill into law to ‘protect Ugandans against social deviants’

  • Truth

    Vile, backwards, hypocritical bigots. After the centuries of persecution black people have suffered they still cannot grasp the disgusting irony of persecuting their own people. I hope the United Nations has the balls to introduce sanctions and boycotts against these Neanderthals.

    • Tim Hanafin

      You can’t ignore the hand of US evangelicals at work here, and they’ll be proud of themselves too – vile, hateful bigots.

  • Steve

    While this happened a study just confirmed that homosexuality is at least part genetic. Shame on uganda. Cut all aid to them !

    • Truth

      Yes – in exactly the same way that black skin is genetic … and we know how persecuted they have been because of it. Yet fhey simply do not register how deeply hypocritical is their targetting of gay people. The Dark Continent is aptly named when it comes to its emerging human rights record ….

      You should actually LOOK at the Chicago ‘study’ – to any researcher it’s laughably absurd. Test sample? missing. Sample of non-brothers? missing. Sample of general population? Missing. Other potential causes? Not even addressed. The “study” {sic} good for a guffaw but not much else!

  • Jones

    You should look at yourself President before calling others names.

    The UK should bring in laws against Ugandans to protect British citizens against religiously deviant social bigots. Deport Ugandans. Life imprisonment for Ugandans. And penalties for individuals and companies who know a Ugandan and support their bigoted beliefs. I would also suggest the death penalty for Ugandans, “kill the Ugandan bill”.

    Sounds ridiculous – but that’s what they are doing to people like us.

    Imagine if the UK did do this, what the UN do? Send in troops? Drop a few bombs on us? Sanctions? Cut all financial aid?

    But as usual, a country can treat Gay men worse than dogs (and Uganda isn’t alone) and no one in the World does anything about it other than blah, blah, blah.

  • JD

    That’s hilarious given the amount of social deviants populate that backward landmass, of heterosexual men screwing any woman they can threaten, beat senseless or mutilate – yeah gay men are the problem – cause their sky god told em so – if I could write a raspberry sound I would…. I can’t

  • John

    I’d like to see the report that the 14 “medical experts” submitted.

    • Cal

      I’d like to see the “medical experts”.

  • Rumbelow

    Looks like the homophobic bigots not only have their own medical experts but their own medical experts have also invented their own medical facts in order to damn gay people.
    What a disappointment Museveni has turned out to be, only to be expected with his wife Janet and daughter Patience totally in thrall to the US anti-gay evangelicals.

  • Colin

    If this happens it will potentially affect 3 million people. Civilisation has a long way to go before we allow people to live as they want unfettered by others views.
    Shame on him if he does and shame on Uganda

    Please UN kick both Uganda and Nigeria out of the UN.

    • RCQ_92130

      How about we get pedophiles to keep their gnarly claws off children? How about THAT for a change?

      • Colin

        I’m not sure if I should even reply to you as clearly in my opinion you have a fixed mindset.

        Research in many of the more educated countries has clearly shown NO correlation between being gay and pedophilia. Most pedophiles are straight men.

        In less educated countries uneducated religious nuts seek to cause hate by linking the two. They are not interested in modernising their knowledge but seek to control people and communities. Shame on them. I will not reply to any further messages. Go well but educate yourself.

        • RCQ_92130

          I appreciate your courteous response, however misguided and incorrect.

          There exists no linkage between “lesser developed countries” and intellect. That’s a bigoted view of humans.

          Regarding pedophilia: You are correct “most” pedophiles are straight — because only 2.7% of the population is gay. If gays were 50% of the population the overall percentage of pedophiles who are gay would swamp those who are straight.

          Only 2.7% of the population – adult gay males (in the USA) account for a startling THIRTY FIVE PERCENT of all children raped (35%)! Pedophilia ia an epidemic among gays; yet there is so much denial going on – simply to protect the image of gays – most are not aware and think as you do. The “protect the image” response is EXACTLY who the Catholic Church reacted to the gay pedophiles who invaded the Priesthood. Everyone rightly condemns the Church’s reaction and holds it at least partially responsible. High time gays accepted they are doing the same thing – and are also equally responsible for the heinous actions of the pedophiles in their midst.

            The family research council where I think you got your information from is a religious nut job organisation. There information is biased and it is widely recognised as being very anti gay people using. It is widely spoken about on the internet.
            Try reading:

            Gay Men and Child Molestation: Myth or Fact?

            Are gay men more likely to molest children? General public perception is that child molestation is directly linked to homosexuality. Perhaps it’s because many continue to falsely associate homosexuality exclusively with sexual behavior and thus believe children are not safe around gay men. This misguided perception has led to widespread opposition to gay teachers, religious leaders and day care providers among others. But is the link between gays and pedophilia fact or myth?

            Adoption expert, Carrie Craft cites the Child Welfare Information Gateway(previously National Adoption Information Clearinghouse) as stating, “A child’s risk of being molested by his or her relatives’ heterosexual
            partner is over one hundred times greater than by someone who might be identifiable as being homosexual.” The study also found that of 269 cases of child sex abuse, only two offenders where found to be gay or lesbian. The American Psychological Association agrees, “Another myth about homosexuality is the mistaken belief that gay men have more of a tendency than heterosexual men to sexually molest
            children. There is no evidence to suggest that homosexuals molest children.”

            According to these reputable studies, gay men are actually less likely to molest children. So, will these myth-busters change general perception?

            There are data links in there.

            For the record if a gay person breaks the law they should be treated as any other member of society. If anyone forces sex on another a child or adult they should face the law.

    Good on Uganda.
    Immoral godless deviants have no place in civilized society…

    • dtnorth

      Indeed. You don’t do you.

  • RCQ_92130

    GREAT! Uganda move to protect her children from pedophiles, and that is wonderful. Human Rights worries about “lives destroyed” yet turns a blind eye to the CHILDREN’S lives destroyed, and that is 100% pure EVIL.

  • Colin

    I am not against Uganda but against this law.

    I used to have a wonderful Ugandan cleaner who cleaned for me and my now ex partner for 7 years. She knew we were gay but said nothing. We rarely saw each other but when we did it was always fun, friendship and when encouraged she would talk about her life. Both she and her husband left Uganda under Idi Amin in the later 70’s i think. She was grateful for Britain taking them in and had two sons in the UK. Both she and her husband worked full time and paid tax.
    I helped her with application forms to get into M&S full time and we practiced interview

    technique.
    Chris and I paid for them to return to Uganda for a holiday so her sons could meet her dying father. We were honoured to be able to do that for them. On her last day cleaning we planned to take her out to lunch but she never turned up and did not answer her phone. We posted her wages and our thanks. A step too far maybe..I’ll never know.
    Loy was part of our lives for 5 years and she loved chocolate. A hard working mum from a difficult past. A woman I so respected. Boy could she iron shirts.

    I wish Uganda well but I with all my heart I ask the religious bodies around the world to come together and make peace with gay people. The UN figures are that 6% of the world population of 7.2 billion are gay. That is 426 million people. That is 6 times the population of the UK. Now can the world accept gays and move on.

      These actions, Colin … in Uganda, in Russia, and elsewhere …. are the result of gay pedophilia targeting children in various countries for child sex junkets just as many target children in Thailand. Uganda was Europe’s favorite destination (in part because their former King was himself a gay pedophile and welcomed foreigners to exploit the countries’ children). And, of course, we are all aware of the numerous cases of Russian children (and those of other former-USSR countries) adopted by pedophiles in the US.

      When a country wakes up and takes steps to protect it’s children we should be thankful, not critical. When countries go overboard, as (in my opinion) as has Uganda, we should understand why there has been the extreme reaction and not criticize the country who for years was a victim.

      Loving gays should never mean loving and condoning any heinous or improper acts of those in the gay community. It happens that gay pedophilia is rampant among gays. This should be rooted out; those who are destroying children should be permanently removed from society. Instead, many in the gay community – in particular – continue to deny the peoplem, thus becoming enablers.

      I urge you to stop defending every gay simply because he or she is gay, and treat gays as you would anyone else. I presume you feel disgust and are repelled by straight pedophiles. How about the same for gay pedophiles. The fact they are gay does not make their heinous acts any better.

      • Colin

        Prove your assertions.
        Actually please don’t reply.

  • timpa mavuto

    I agree with the President 100%. All those complaining (esp. frm the West) should know that Africans have values that they need to preserve!! The bill will be enacted into law and U have nothing to do about it!
