Uganda sets plans for new anti-gay law

American evangelicals strike again.

[quote]Uganda will propose a new anti-gay bill on Wednesday, the speaker of the country's parliament said, as conspiracy theories accusing shadowy international forces of "promoting homosexuality" flood social media.

[quote]In recent weeks, online conspiracy theories conflating child sexual abuse at boarding schools with consensual same-sex acts between adults have reached fever pitch. Uganda's government last month set up a committee to investigate the alleged "promotion" of gay, lesbian and transgender rights in schools.

They're obsessed by sex.

No wonder their economically backwards, they're far to busy concentrating on legislating for what people do in private, than focus on their economic woes.

[quote]"Homosexual acts are already illegal and a new law would mean more harassment and discrimination against people who are already vulnerable."

[quote]Under colonial-era laws, homosexual acts are illegal in Uganda but since independence from Britain in 1962 there has never been a conviction for consensual same-sex activity.

[quote]In 2014, a Ugandan court struck down a bill passed by MPs and signed by President Yoweri Museveni that sought to impose life imprisonment for homosexual relations.

Some good news and some bad news in this article. It's a "two steps forward, one step back" sort of thing. I remember the 2014 battle over that law and that shit got so nasty, I feel so bad for the gays there.

[quote]Uganda MPs revive hardline anti-LGBTQ bill, calling homosexuality a ‘cancer’

[quote]“In this country, or in this world, we talk about human rights. But it is also true that there are human wrongs. I want to submit … that homosexuality is a human wrong that offends the laws of Uganda and threatens the sanctity of the family, the safety of our children and the continuation of humanity through reproduction,” said Basalirwa, to applause from lawmakers.

How is this possible in a Christian majority country?? DL trolls try to convince us that only Muslims make such laws against gays

It's going to be such a shitshow decades from now when the West is mostly irreligious and Africa is still super religious. Business as usual won't be sustainable, something will have to give. The World Cup in Qatar has given us a small glimpse of that future already.

No freedom of association and freedom of expression for gay people in Uganda anymore. All in the name of Jeebus, who was famously against self-expression and congregation.

Speaking of third-world shitholes, now Ron DeSantis’ “Free State of Florida” wants to ban all discussion of sexuality in all grades. Which merely paves the way for Uganda-style legislation there too.

Museveni has killed more people, at least 10 million, than anyone else alive today. That's the kind of person American evangelicals clientele with.

Can we talk about the fake war against the non-existent Joseph Kony? All of which was used to put Museveni's ethnic enemies in concentration camps where they could be starved to death? All done with the collusion of American right-wingers and all of the Kony saga very suspiciously like the life story of Museveni himself?
