Britain Is Lobbying To Stop Uganda’s “Kill The Gays” Bill. Why Isn’t America?

Uganda has fast-tracked their heinous “Kill the Gays” bill and it’s currently being discussed in their parliament. And even though the bill’s original proposer David Bahati and rabidly anti-gay pastor Martin “Eat Da Poo Poo” Ssempsa no longer support the death penalty against gays, life for any Uganda homosexual under such a law would still be horrid. So while the UK’s Foreign Secretary William Hague has said that the UK is lobbying against the bill why have US leaders been silent? Are online petitions and calls to the Ugandan embassy really the best America can do or are US leaders working quietly on the issue as not to “expend political capital” and further propagate the image of homosexuality as a Western import?

Umm… Uganda. You do know that your have a giant cock on your country’s flag, right?

    If this Bill passes then we must press our government to halt all aid to Uganda.

    If this grotesque law passes then clearly Uganda does not require aid – after all how can they pretend to need aid, when they have the time and money to persecute gay people.

    Actually America is Lobbying – I have been in touch with the US State department and a lot is going on that you have not heard of – including the fact that we had reps sitting in the hearings and reporting back. US state department is taking it very seriously too. What is lacking is US mainstream press….

    I have managed to write about 12 pieces on this in a week

    Americans are hypocrites. We have the same kinds of laws right here in the USA still on the books in many states, some of which can carry the death penalty. Clean up your own house!

    Americans are total idiots. that is why america is fast becoming like uganda or saudi arabia. Socially backward shitholes.

  • lemon-lime

    @xalomio: you may think Americans are idiots, but at least most Americans don’t come off like a total asshat like you do. We save that distinction for our elected officials. If you want to criticize Americans or America, follow Ferdinand‘s example and people might actually care what you have to say.

    What the hell is up with all the hating on Queerty, lately. It’s so demoralizing. It’s like folks have given up on the idea that you can embrace diversity of thought while still actively demanding justice for everyone.

  • Storm

    Oh, look. Two trolls there – Ferdinand and Xolomio – who think that in America you can be thrown in jail for failing to report someone who is homosexual, who think that you can be thrown in jail for giving a homosexual a job, who think that you can be thrown in jail just for being gay. What a pair of bang-bang morons.

    Actually Barney Frank is pressuring the govnt to halt all aid to uganda if the satanic bill is passed. He’s pressuring the treasurer to stop all aid that has ANY USA involvement in it.
    Germany is apparently stopping aid if it passes, and appears UK may try that too.
