Uganda’s rapidly becoming the epicenter of anti-gay action in the Southern Hemisphere!
Long a bastion of backward sexual ideals, the African nation last week hosted a group of homophobic Anglicans looking to revolt against the broader international Communion, which garnered their ire by refusing to denounce gay Bishop Gene Robinson.
Riding the tide of intolerance, the Ugandan government this weekend announced they’re going to take a harder line against the homos, a group that already lives in fear there.
Concerned by the “mushrooming” gay population, Ethics and Integrity Minister James Buturo released the following statement: “The state of moral health in our nation is challenging and we are concerned about the mushrooming of lesbianism and homosexuality.Ten years ago, this phenomena was not there, but the disease has penetrated everywhere.” An interesting choice of words, no?
Anyway, Buturo says he and his ilk hope to establish stricter laws against the already prohibited gays and will push for more prosecution.
