Hello! They are in fact preparing to KILL sizeable amounts of people simply for the sake there-of.
These laws will never make homosexual behaviour disappear (in Uganda it is in anyway already so underground that many Ugandans don't even know what
It can however be used to "investigate" and "torture" government opposition, and it can effectively be used to make entire villages disappear. Did
Mugabe stop with the gays when he started his insane reign of terror?
You say that Ugandans have the right to excecute or send gays and their friends to prisons (in Africa, stalag or "concentration camp" would be more
apposite terminology). You must therefore also argue that Nazi Germany had the right to exterminate Jews and other dissidents since they had a belief
against this. Or maybe the Hutus had a right - on the same pretext - to exterminate the Tutsis? Since when does prejudice excuse a hate crime?
This argument sounds only logical to an extreme fascist.
Some people think human rights only belong to their own little group - until they are targeted next. While one could tolerate laws against public
homosexuality, invading people's bedrooms and creating collateral victims and informers is unacceptable.
Never mind that what Uganda does in regards to human rights and HIV affects the whole region, including South Africa.
