    Uganda passes tough new anti-homosexuality bill

    Uganda passes tough new anti-homosexuality bill
    2013-12-21



    Ugandan lawmakers on Friday passed an anti-gay bill that calls for life imprisonment for certain homosexual acts, drawing criticism from rights campaigners who called it “the worst in the world”.


    The legislations sets life imprisonment as the penalty for gay sex involving an HIV-infected person, acts with minors and the disabled, as well as repeated sex offences among consenting adults, according to the office of a spokeswoman for Uganda's parliament.

    The bill also prescribes a seven-year jail term for a person who “conducts a marriage ceremony” for same-sex couples.

    When the bill was first introduced in 2009, it was widely condemned for including the death penalty, but that was removed from the revised version passed by parliament.

    The lawmaker behind the bill, David Bahati, said a death penalty clause was dropped from the final version of the bill. The approved text must now be given the green light by President Yoweri Museveni, himself a devout evangelical Christian.

    "This is a victory for Uganda. I am glad the parliament has voted against evil," Bahati told AFP.

    "Because we are a God-fearing nation, we value life in a holistic way. It is because of those values that members of parliament passed this bill regardless of what the outside world thinks," he said.

    Parliamentary spokeswoman Hellen Kaweesa said the changes meant that it had secured "majority support" among MPs.

    Deputies voted overwhelmingly in favour of the text, which has been widely condemned by rights activists and world leaders – with US President Barack Obama describing it as "odious" and Nobel Peace laureate archbishop Desmond Tutu comparing it to apartheid.

    "Now anybody found practising, recruiting for or publicising homosexuality commits a felony," said Simon Lokodo, Uganda's Minister of State for Ethics and Integrity.

    "We think this is an achievement for Uganda because the minors will be protected and the innocents will be saved from abuse and molestation," Lokodo said.

    "We will get hold of all those encouraging others to become homosexuals or lesbians. Anybody we find recruiting or using materials to promote homosexuality, we will arrest."

    Homophobia is widespread in Uganda, where American-style evangelical Christianity is on the rise. Gay men and women in the country face frequent harassment and threats of violence, and rights activists have also reported cases of lesbians being subjected to "corrective" rapes.


    Members of the Ugandan gay community attend the funeral of a murdered activist David Kato at his parental home close to the town of Mataba on January 28, 2011.

    In 2011, prominent Ugandan gay rights activist David Kato was bludgeoned to death at his home after a newspaper splashed photos, names and addresses of gays in Uganda on the front page along with a yellow banner reading "Hang Them".

    Anti-pornography bill

    While homosexuality was already illegal, the new bill stiffens penalties and also criminalises the public promotion of homosexuality -- including discussions by rights groups.

    After the vote, Ugandan gay activist Frank Mugisha declared himself "officially illegal" and also "outraged and disappointed".

    "This is a truly terrifying day for human rights in Uganda," he said. "It will open a new era of fear and persecution. If this law is signed by President Museveni, I'd be thrown in jail for life and in all likelihood killed.

    "We urgently need world leaders to call on President Museveni and demand he stops this bill of hate from becoming law."

    Leslie Lefkow of Human Rights Watch said the law was "abhorrent".

    "The bill's provision on the criminalisation of 'promotion' is a direct attack on the legitimate work of national and international activists and organisations working to defend and promote human rights in Uganda," HRW added in a statement.

    Amnesty International said the "wildly discriminatory legislation" was "a grave assault on human rights".

    One Ugandan MP, Fox Odoi, was also critical.

    "Fundamentally there is the human rights issue. It's a bad law and it doesn't serve any useful purpose," he said.

    "If a man has sex with a woman and penetrates her anus, there's supposed to be nothing wrong with that. How can you apply two different standards to what is much the same thing? I can't quite understand that."

    The vote also comes a day after the Ugandan parliament passed an anti-pornography and dress-code law that bans anything that is deemed sexually suggestive.

    "Anybody that dresses in very short skirt or a very opened shirt that allows people to see the breast, anybody that dresses in a way that we can see the buttocks, is condemned by this law," Lokodo said.

    It also outlaws "any erotic behaviour intended to cause sexual excitement or any indecent act or behaviour tending to corrupt morals".

    In 2008, former ethics and integrity minister James Nsaba Buturo tried to pass similar legislation claiming a woman wearing provocative clothing risked causing traffic accidents by distracting drivers.

    President Museveni caused an uproar in 2012 when he told female school students to "keep a padlock on your private parts until the time comes to open them when you have a husband."

    In addition to outlawing "provocative" clothing, the anti-pornography bill will result in scantily dressed performers being banned from Ugandan television. It will also closely monitor what individuals watch on the Internet.

    A British man, Bernard Randall, is currently facing trial in Uganda and a possible two-year sentence if convicted for "trafficking obscene publications" after police found pictures of him having gay sex.

    good point, any ugandan bumster that washes up in europe can claim asylum and all that goes along with it (free housing, schooling, medical and monetary benefits) by claiming they are escaping persecution back home.

    As corrupt as can be.

    Uganda is about 80% Christian but still became a member of the OIC thanks to Dada, who figured quite rightly that the Muslim world would be sympathetic to his cause and therefore a comfortable place from which to murder Christians and other non-Muslims.

    Unfortunately for him the Muslim world welcomed him to the OIC but did not support him when it went ass up, even though our best friend in the ME gave him asylum, he accepted, moved his loot into safe precincts and lived out the next quarter century in palatial splendour, safe from the civilised world.

    And it looks like the OIC follows the Islamic principle of once a Muslim always a Muslim, because Uganda's Christian leaders tried to pull Uganda out of that illustrious body, which caused an uproar with Muslims arguing that Muslims may be a minority but they were in Buganda long before Christians got there.

    And as usual the hollow argument wins the day, because nobody in the civilised world had the stomach, backbone or integrity to remind the OIC that non-Muslims were in every Muslim land before the Muslims arrived to conquer and subjugate them.

    africa was, is and always will be a lost cause, and now that is is slowly drowning in islam it is becoming even more hopeless.

    when corruption, ignorance, aids, starvation, islam and wars have eventually decimated the population it can be left to become the truly wonderful nature reserve that has probably always been its destiny.

    Christianity is happy to convert AIDS patients on the death bed, or whatever passes for a bed.

    Them Christians are fruitcakes of the first order. I clicked the link of the new condom for women thread in the health forum, followed some other links, stumbled across a new condom designed for anal sex, and suddenly fell in the sewer.

    A product sure to enrage Jesus. A condom designed for butt sex. - The Landover Baptist Church Forum

    One of the post,

    "Lord Jesus, I pray thee, guide my fingers as I type. And lead me not into anal sex.

    Deliver us, Lord, from rectal fissures and intestinal hemorrhages.

    Smite, oh Lord, anyone who wraps a phallus in anything. Slay, oh Lord, those who penetrate the rectum with any part of the human anatomy, or any synthetic contrivance.

    Amen.

    Brethren, I refuse to submit to the brain bubble forming in my cerebellum as I undergo this scathing conniption. For the main reason homers have anal sex is in fact to persecute us, and induce aneurisms in Christian brains, and in the brain of Christ. They want us to wither and die, in order that they might rape and molest us post mortem, and consume the salts of our jizz drizzled flesh.

    I refuse to believe that we have been left behind, as compelling as this new evidence may be. For God marshals both the good and the evil in the unfolding of His impeccable plans. I believe God has allowed the development of this anal aperture in order to lure more sodomites into Hell, so that we might not clog the firmament during the Rapture. I believe that God, not sodomy, is in control of the cosmos.

    The human rectum is a dangerous place, full of darkness and feces. The human anus is a stumbling block laid before the sodomite, to lead him into damnation. The Big Rape Lobby may have won a major battle, brethren, but Christ is eternally victorious over His enemies. Lo, eternally victorious is the Kingdom of God.

    Lord of Lords, King of Kings, harken unto my manly cry! Gather your children into your bosom in a manly way. Protect us from anal rape. Guide us through the narrow gate with our rectal tissues as intact as possible. Formulate your Circle of Protection around our anal sanctity. Convene your armies upon the battlefield of souls, so that Satan's rectal ways may be ever undermined. Let the gay campaign to destroy all straight marriages, and my rectum, be usurped utterly.

    Amen."


    Good Lord, why would people talk like this? And why did you make some Christians more bizarre than Muslims?
