Uganda Is Trying To Sneak The “Kill The Gays” Bill Under Our Noses

Uganda’s largest independent newspaper, the Daily Monitor reported that the Ugandan Cabinet had thrown out the infamous “Kill the Gays” bill. The Cabinet says that the country doesn’t need a bill to jail all gays, HIV-positive people, and those who don’t report them to police since Uganda already has laws criminalizing homosexuality. But only the Parliament can dismiss bills and it looks like they’ll be able to pick up the “Kill the Gays” bill after they pass a budget this Wednesday.

This is officially the zombie bill that will not die. It has more lives than the feline offspring of Rasputin.

Jim Burroway from the Box Turtle Bulletin says, “This would indicate that not only is the bill very much alive, but is being actively worked in Parliament. If so, then the bill’s backers were already successful in reviving the bill without garnering any notice from the news media.”

This bill returns amid attacks on Ugandan LGBT organizations and the revelation that Michele Bachmann’s religious outreach organizer has ties to the Ugandan hate minister championing the bill.

      The US pledged 600 Million this year to this crap hole country! Anti-gay aside, the US can’t even take care of its own. The US, if they wanted to could use this bill as an excuse to save us some money. Use that money for people in the US. We shouldn’t give one cent to any country that doesn’t follow our rules. If they want money they must become a democracy, otherwise no dough. NO more money to corrupt, violent Africa.

      I wish the American Whiteys would stop pretending that they give a damn about African LGBTs.

      @inoits2: @inoits2: “Crap hole country.” “US cannot take care of its own” “We shouldn’t give one cent to any country that doesn’t follow our rules.” “If they want money they must become a democracy, otherwise no dough.” “No more money to corrupt, violent Africa.” I guess that the way to fight ignorance is with ignorance. Wow.
