Ugliness in Uganda

This is unbridled tyranny. That it is Christian tyranny makes it no better than the Muslim variety.

A Ugandan newspaper listed Tuesday 200 people it accused of being gay, a day after the president called homosexuals ‘mercenaries’ and signing one of the world’s toughest anti-gay laws.

“Uganda’s 200 top homos named,” the daily newspaper added, which listed both those who have openly declared their sexuality as well as those who had not, including gay rights activists, priests and music stars.

“In salutation to the new law, today we unleash Uganda‚Äôs top homos and their sympathisers,” the newspaper added.

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

On Monday, President Yoweri Museveni signed a bill into law which holds that repeat homosexuals should be jailed for life, outlaws the promotion of homosexuality and requires people to denounce gays.

    I never could understand that. Dude’s an evangelical Christian, presumably a follower of the most supreme manifestation of love the world has ever seen, and signs laws that do this kind of crap? Mindblowing.

    This type of thing goes on all the time in islamist countries. Don’t hear much about it in those countries from the media.

    Remember Idi Amin Dada. Let’s just shake our collective heads and remember where it’s happening. We can’t save the world folks, we ain’t even doing a good job of it with our Country.

    I don’t care for homos, but that’s my choice. Once this sort of police state gets implemented, The State imprisons anyone who opposes them.
