      This is why this that law is so dangerous. My feeling is just cut all their aid. The UK did it already. It’s never going to get to GLBT people anyways. I mean them just showing up for treatment mean they’ll face life imprisonment.

      The Anti-Gay laws appearing in Africa were sparked by US evangelical leaders. On trips to African country evangelicals held meetings with high level government officials, in which they spewed their venomous hatred of gays, the “homosexuality is attack on the family,” and tired old “all gays are pedophiles” argument.

      Shortly after these high level meetings, government leaders started speaking out about the dangers of homosexuality, and the danger pose to children by gay people. Then the laws came along.

      I wish we know which evangelical leaders held the meetings, in each of the countries that are now spewing homophobic propaganda, and criminalization. We need to hold them to account for all the beatings, all the arrests, all the property damage, and all the deaths. Now we need to hold them directly responsible for the spread of HIV, and a new round of death from AIDS.

      The world has embraced Treatment as Prevention (TasP) as the single most important strategy in ending the HIV pandemic. TasP means testing as many people as you can, and get the people who test Poz on treatment as soon as possible. Once on treatment, the Poz person’s viral load drops dramatically, and they become far less infectious. New data for the European Partner study suggest that once they have an undetectable viral load it may not be possible to transmit the transmit the HIV to any sexual partner.

      Uganda’s tactics are the opposite of TasP. With fewer places to get tested, and fewer places for Poz people to get the antiretrovirals they need, HIV rates will skyrocket. And of course the Poz people will eventually die of AIDS.

      At least in the western world we advance the cause of TasP. If you are sexually active, get tested every three months. If you’re Poz, get on treatment as soon as possible.

      And next time a “Christian” mentions Sodom and Gomorrah, remind them that it’s a story of Men using Rape as a form of Torture and Subjugation. It has nothing to do with homosexuality.

      @PozSince1985: I get it that they went over and told a bunch of lies and should be held accountable. However, the Ugandan’s aren’t children either. All I hear are excuses. It’s that or westerners fault for something that happened a hundred years ago.

      These people are full of seething hatred and 100% brain washed right now and it has nothing to do with any western influence. Gays are just convenient scapegoats and one day they’ll realize that their lives have just gotten worse and they’ll either get it together or find another thing to blame it on. My guess is the latter though.

      @money718: yeah, that’s the ticket, call me “dumb as hell”. name calling always works to succinctly make your point, doesn’t it? I may be full of it, granted, but dumb as hell … nah, not so much. How about you?
