All Uganda wants for Christmas is to kill the gays

It was only a matter of time before Uganda – oblivious to international pressure – would pass their notorious ‘kill the gays’ bill. Claiming homosexuals pose a ‘serious threat’, the government has decided to pass the law by the end of December. The speaker of the Cabinet, Rebecca Kadaga (seen above waving a fucking Bible, what else?), said this would be a Christmas present for her constituents. This barbaric bill is divided into two parts:

‘Aggravated homosexuality’ is defined as gay acts committed by parents or authority figures, HIV-positive people, pedophiles and repeat offenders. If convicted, they will face the death penalty.

The ‘offense of homosexuality’ includes same-sex sexual acts or being in a gay relationship, and will be prosecuted by life imprisonment.

So, it’s either the death penalty or life imprisonment, depending on just how ignorant the prosecution is. Kadaga even suggested that the whole of Africa, a continent in the grips of religious revival, should pass similar laws to needlessly torture, imprison, and murder individuals whose only crime is to have same sex attractions.

American Evangelicals must be jumping for joy at the thought of all the anti-gay shit they keep spewing is being taken seriously by some people.

    Kinda cements my desire to never go to that fucking country. As a gay man who has done NO harm to any country or person ever (although I can be quite harsh when cornered), I don’t see why I should be imprisoned or put to death just for being me. I realise this is quite obvious, but to 89% of Ugandans, apparently, this idea has passed them by.

    Why is it okay to do this to a minority of the Ugandan population? How about the UK creates a ‘Kill the Ugandans’ law? Would that be okay? Nope, obviously not. Unfortunately, the Ugandans and their parliament seem to have passed this one by.

    The next time a Ugandan preacher talks about morality, I’ll remind them of their country’s legalised murder and imprisonment.
