Uganda to UN: Gays Recruit, Are A Threat To Our Children

Article 31(2a) of the Constitution prohibits marriage between persons of the same sex. Sections 145 and 146 of the Penal Code prohibit same sex relations. While the Constitution, under Chapter Four, guarantees rights of persons, it also imposes duties and obligations on them to ensure that in the enjoyment of such rights, they do not infringe on the rights of others. Those who practice and / or support lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) issues continue to push for their recognition as a right.There is information of covert recruitment, of especially our children and youth, into such practices which we consider to be detrimental to the moral fabric of our society. In Uganda, there is an overwhelming consensus that such practices are untenable; and thus culturally and legally unacceptable. It is our considered opinion that such practices remain a matter of
private choice. There should be no promotion of those practices.”

—A passage from Uganda’s submission to the United Nations’ Universal Periodic Review, which requires member states to report on their human-rights record.

    Ugh so tired of these people they will do whatever they can to make homosexuality criminalized .Especially so they can MURDER gay americans.

    OK, look, I can sort of understand bigots thinking that gays recruit–it’s preposterous, but it’s pretty conventional fear-mongering. They don’t have our experiences, and they view their experiences with sexual orientation as “neutral” or “normal” so it’s easy enough for them to think of sexual orientation as something you “add-on” to a “normal” person. Transgender people are a harder sell, but gender, like sexual orientation, isn’t tangible, so I suppose the same fear-mongering rules apply.

    Once you suggest that intersex people are recruiting, though, you’ve pretty much lost any shred of credibility you might have had even with the wingnuttiest of mingnuts.

    Uganda should not a cent in international aid. If they have the money to persecute the LGBT community then quite clearly they have plenty of money.

    Give me one good reason why we should not just bomb that wretched “nation” out of existence and take over what’s left? It was good enough for Nazi Germany.

  • paulcanning

    Somehow I don’t think this ‘we recruit’ idea is authentically African… Now I wonder where they got the idea from? Any ideas?

    If that doesn’t register, then keep in mind that in bombing it out of existence, the bombs will kill more gays than Uganda does.

    when and where were YOU all recruited?

    i was recruited when i was taken to see a production of the musical South Pacific when i was 9. Men singing and dancing dressed as sailors. SOLD.

  • Queer Supremacist

    @Little Kiwi: Recruited? Hell, I was gay before I was born, probably because my mom watched Dynasty when she was pregnant with me.

    @B: Then we get the gays out first, then bomb them.

    As for Iraq, Uganda is not part of the Middle East, and bungling yahoo Donald Rumsfeld isn’t secretary of defense anymore.

    But if left up to the UN, Uganda would be on the Human Rights Commission.
